One of the better place to have an Omakase sushi course on the Big Island. I really didn’t expect to have Sushi of that quality. You must experience the Omakase course. will definitely go back again, again and again!

Overall it was quite disappointing! I was visiting Big Island and looking for a good and authentic sushi place. This place was recommended by a local person and... it was actually horrible. Soba was not cold enough and too salty, sushi smelled so fishy, rice was so dried, and price was unbelievably high!! We felt we were robbed. Oh, did I mention that service was terrible too? We were invisible to servers. I do NOT recommend this place!

Some of the best sushi on the island. High quality as well as variety of fish. Much of the fish is sourced locally whenever possible. We found this gem about 2 years ago and it has grown in popularity since then as reservations are definitely required during the dinner hour.

We have been many times, and this place never disappoints. If you get one of the boats for two, be sure there are four of you...all good. Freshest fish in both sushi and sashimi. Tasty starters, too. Good place to have a conversation. Very attentive servers. Sushi bar looks like it too would be a treat.

Sushi shiono was a great find. Great sushi with a very friendly staff. We had Dragon roll, Hawaiian Volcano roll and a Philly roll. All were excellent. Dining area is not very big so it is important to have a reservation.

Been coming here for years and it is always good. A great selection of unique rolls and Japanese cuisine accompanied by very well done traditional Japanese sushi like their Himachi Nigiri that was so fresh and tender it just melts in your mouth like butter.
Family friendly or great for a date, the location on Alii Drive allows for a walk along the ocean after dinner and a selection of bars and nightclubs nearby for an after dinner drink.
If you have not been go. But I recommend a reservation because they do get busy and you will have to wait for a table.
Two thumbs up - for sure.

I had a wonderful server (coming from the service industry), I wish I could remember her name. She was speedy, full of energy and just pleasant. I brought my daughter here for her birthday because she loves sushi and we weren't let down. Was an awesome experience all around, even left a note on her receipt! Great great experience!! & we were recommended by a Chef!
