Amazing as usual! CAbnot wait til they reopen in June. 🤗
Always easier with a reservation. We sat,ordered,and ate within an hour. Can't live without the cosmopolitan roll
The place smelt like sewage, we had 3 rolls and lost our appetite. The waiter was very rude with my family. Price was way too high for simplistic sushi. The only thing that was "neat" was the lollipop sushi. We will not return.
Fish in nigiri had no taste, although fresh. Rolls are better with the sauces and flavoring
Seeing two sushi chefs at the front counter with their Kimono shirts open to the waist with no undergarments was deplorable. I believe this is borderline unsanitary and should be looked into. I spent 350.00 for a party of six. The food was not as expected. I ordered the steak dinner from the kitchen and asked for steamed vegetables versus the rice. I received additional onions and mushrooms to the point that I had to search for the steak. The steak was very thin and skimpy by any standards for the price of 28.00. To top it off the waitress did not return my credit card. Today is Friday and I have not heard from the restaurant.I have placed a hold on my card until it is returned. Not a good experience and I will not recommend this restaurant to my friends or acquaintances.
We have eaten here several times and have always had good service and good food!
Sushi Bushido used to be our favorite sushi bar on Kauai. Something drastic has happened. Quality was way down. Asking for additional wasabi was like pulling teeth. Wasabi! Really? I hope things turn around but not sure we want to go back again and risk it. When having raw fish, quality must be the #1 priority. Gambling with our health is NOT an option. Value wasn't good either.
Charged $2 for 4 lemon slices for our water
I eat out a lot - maybe too much - and that’s a first - they charged us for lemon slices for our water - how low can you go?
Never mind that our waitress was inexperienced (at best), forgetting things, bringing wrong dishes
They charged $25 for 4 shrimps tempura and rice!!
Food was ok
Don’t go there
Food-very good, service-very good, price- average for Kauai. The restaurant needs an update/overhaul. Open air and off the Main Street so not air conditioned with little circulation except for fans. Also created an environment for lots of flying bugs that hovered over the food and drinks. That being said, good place to feed your island sushi fix.
Sushi was spot on! Sake was fantastic! Attentive staff and everyone seemed to be having a quality experience. My only negative was that the desserts could use some refinement, but I’m still giving Bushido 5 stars because everything else was stellar!
No problem with our reservation. Got right in with a large party. Service was excellent. Food was fresh and so good. Auli'i roll, Cosmo roll to name a few.
We always have a great time. The food is delicious
Awesome as always. Food is always great and the service was good .
We’re on our honeymoon and we wanted some good sushi for a good price. We didn’t wanna be over charged at some resort. After some apprehension from some reviews on here, we settled on Sushi Bushido and we’re so glad we did! What a great, relaxed environment (I think they stole my iPod playlist, haha). Friendly staff, well priced menu, and awesome sushi. We love sushi and ordered the Large Nigiri Combo, which was a hit. So fresh and delicious.
Super creative sushi rolls. Great music playing and just a fun place to eat! I wish there was a Sushi Bushido on the south side...hint hint
Great food! Its loud so people cant hear my kids so I love that. Kid menu is limited but tastey. Soda's are $3 each, no free refill so thats annoying. Ive gone with the hubs, hubs and kids and hubs, kids and family. Never a let down!
Well we had 6:45p reservations and showed up on time, we waited almost 10 minutes before someone came to seat us. Waitresses passed ua, but did not acknowledge we were standing there to be seated. Multiple tables had been left uncleared, which was a huge turn off. When we were finally seated, we sat there for another 10 minutes with no wait staff bring us water or take our drink orders. There was a huge party near us, but again no acknowledgment from that waitress that she would be with us soon. Honestly, the place was not even super busy. So we got up and left and went elsewhere. Open table makes you rate the food, although we didn't get any, the rating is based truly on ambiance and service. For some reason the place is rated highly on here, but elsewhere they don't even get 4 stars. You'd be better off at one of the local fish markets for a poke bowl or fresh ahi sashimi at a reasonable price.
While the rolls are certainly creative, flavor and taste are either lacking or overpowering. Tempura was bland and service was mediocre. For the price, I was underwhelmed.
I prefer more authentic sushi and sashimi, everything was fresh and it was an enjoyable evening.
Always the best place to go for sushi in kapaa
Always a good time at Sushi Bushido. The food, the service always on point! They treat you like family! My all time favorite place to dine & bring friends & or family. They go above & beyond to accommodate for a party!
After the last mediocre experience we had (a week or so prior to this one), this truly made up for it. The service was prompt and attentive - our server was friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable - and the food was delicious! The drinks were served promptly and reordered in a timely manner. We plan to return when we are on Kauai next year for vacation.
Our food was OK, and our drinks fine, but the service was terrible. We had a reservation and showed up at the appropriate time to be seated. We were seated immediately but never given water or menus. After 11 minutes somebody finally came around to take our order and we advised them that we have never received menus or waters. We asked if we could please start with cocktails and that we have a schedule to keep to catch a flight. The tables around us were being served quickly and easily while we were served very poorly. We’re going to give them another try this week and hope that things of changed.
The service was horrible! body language and huge sighs constantly from waiter when Asked for more wasabi and he didn't bother to ask if we wanted to pay together or to split the check, when we responded with split the check please he then let out a huge and obvious sigh of agitation, later proceeded to the cashier, slams check book and pen down and exchanged complaints with other waiters and clerks. Food was not worth what we paid for. Asked for medium rare and got well done steak, was too intimidated to ask for a new one because of the mistreatment my family and I got. We celebrated a birthday and was not happy at all to say the least!
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.
Bombs food like always
Excellent. Food and ambiance were great. Will certainly visit again next time I'm in Kapa'a
Overpriced for mediocre rolls...would not go again
May just be the worst sushi we have ever had...and we’ve had a lot. Way too much rice. Fish was not fresh. Was an insult to the fish.
Good sushi made fresh- great sake menu and good sushi!
The music was too loud but food was good.
Amazing sushi, amazing service and an overall wonderful time! Would definitely go again.
Nobody can call the food served in this place « sushi »... just rice with improbable raw but not fresh fish toped on it. Poor of us!
Excellent food, a little pricey but very good. Great location but parking is a challenge. Would recommend it to any sushi lover.
we had reservation and thanks for that.Place was busy and looked understaffed.Hostess seated us in the Bar area all by ourselves and also started to serve us in a timely matter.food was good!!
Great polite server, but backlog at the sushi prep table caused some delays
Go relaxed in no hurry, and all will be fine
Quality Quality Quality! True sushi. Great atmosphere! Constantly delicious.
Chairs are very uncomfortable but food is good. Service was a a bit sporadic. Good value.
Sushi Bushido is our first stop once we land in Kauai. Excellent, fresh sushi. Good service. If you love Sushi, this is a great place to check out!
