Sushi Bushido Ratings and Reviews
I was in Kauai with my wife and her parents, staying in in Lihue, but wanted to explore outside the hotel a bit. This place was just 15 mins up the road from our hotel so decided to try it. Ordered 3 rolls for 4 of us, two of them baked sushi rolls ... all of them delicious. Not a lot of places do baked sushi, and it's not obvious from the menu, but it was nonetheless a pleasant surprise.
Highly recommend the Lava Roll, and the Golden Roll. Shrimps wrapped in shoestring potatoes are a nice novelty too - there's 6 to an order and they aren't jumbo shrimps, so not too heavy or filling. Read some comments about slow service here, but no complaints for the night we visited. Staff were friendly and attentive and the sushi rolls took an expected amount of time for freshly made sushi!
Definitely recommend this place.
While in Kapa'a on our honeymoon, my husband and I were looking for good sushi. We found Sushi Bushido and decided to wait to have sushi when the restaurant opened. It was well worth the wait. The owner was great with conversation and suggestions for the menu. Our waitress was also great with suggestions. They provided a great atmosphere for great sushi and drinks. This place was such a great find; we can't wait to go back!
Sushi Bushido is a casual Japanese restaurant. Our server was friendly and attentive throughout our meal. The cost of sushi rolls is on the high end in my experience and there are no refills on sodas, only for iced tea. The rolls however were large and not skimpy on fillings.
The sushi was good and the sushi chef great.
However, the ambience and especially the service left something to be desired.
We were initially seated outside on a miniscule table where a cross breeze kept blowing cigarette smoke in our faces... we transferred to the sushi bar as despite making a reservation they didnt have a real table for us.
Once inside the service was not very good. Our server only brought out part of the order and forgot our seaweed salad. She never really checked in with us again to see how the food was (which would have given us an opportunity to rectify the matter- our sushi was handed to us directly by the chef across the counter).
So, ok to go, but better places around for the money...
Our table was available right away. We sat for about five minutes before the waitress brought us menus. The apps came out quickly but our food took a while. The food was good but kinda pricey for what we got. Overall it was an ok experience.
Food was good but very disappointed that it is not pointed out that a "service charge" is added to check. I assume now that it is a gratuity on larger groups. Unfortunately did not see it on bill and therefore tipped very generously on top of what was added. Feel like it should be verbally stated. There were many opportunities like when you make the reservation or when they called to confirm the res, when you order and certainly should be pointed out when handed the bill. Feel a bit ripped off. Pretty sure our waitress would have known we didn't mean to give her a 50% tip. Tried to discuss by phone but never can reach anyone there by phone. Prob won't be back.
Bland sushi, no seasoning in the rice or any wasabi. A little bit of ginger and wasabi served on the side. You had to pay $1 to get more. Also no traditional irasshaimase greeting when diners arrived. There isn't much else to say. It was marginal sushi and not much in the way of atmosphere
You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu, the food is amazing. Hands down our favorite stop for sushi on Kauai! Our first stop when we fly in, our last stop before we leave, and a few in between. Sushi perfection!
Grant and team provided a great meal of sushi and sashimi offering recommendations of the best fish available. Special orders did not upset them and they could make it how you like it! Enjoyable time at the sushi counter for a nice evening out.
My wife and I have dinned at sushi Bushido a number of times since we moved to Kauai, the food has always been good. Our guest on this visit had the "No Foiling Around" bake containing Crab, Shrimp, Clams etc and really loved it. My wife and I had the Tempura Shrimp (8 pieces each).
Horrible service. Rolls were just ok. Kids meal was completely over fried and unappealing. Server forgot about us while he set up the back room. Never checked on us or refilled waters or asked for drinks or desserts. I had to ask someone else for silverware and plates. The hunt him down for our bill. Sucked.
I've enjoyed everytime I get to dine at sushi bushido. I'm inlove with the sake nigiri and the kikusui junmai ginjo sake! The service has always been excellent super friendly. It's my favorite spot for dinner whether i'm dining with friends or by myself. The lounge is also a great place to relax and wind down too!.
While on the Eastside good sushi can be found at Sushi Bushido. Maguro was melt in your mouth delicious. Lots of different rolls to choose from. We went with crackling shrimp and was not disappointed. Bushido balls (think malasada's) for dessert was a perfect finish. Reasonable prices no view but recommended.
