Wow, so so good, what a find. Front of house hopping, sushi crafted to a art. Blends of flavours and texture truly innovative. Drove all the way up from Kona on our last day to have more......if you like sushi, this is a MUST.

I am lucky enough to frequent Hawi town and Sushi Rock is something I always look forward to. Fresh, original, organic, creative and always delicious. Fun, relaxed atmosphere lunch and dinner. Great service with a smile. The owner always seems to be there and that is a sign of a great restaurant. The Pololu Salad is my fav. Not to... More

I've eaten here several times, and have been pleased every time with the consistent freshness of very delicious food. I've had sushi in some of the best rated sushi restaurants on the mainland, and this is my favorite not just on the island! The staff are wonderful, and the service is always freindly and prompt. It's a must eat here... More

Exceptionally fresh food, friendly and attentive staff, and decent prices make this well worth the stop. I've lived in Japan and am more of a sushi purest, but the menu has some intriguing and imaginative choices like the "Neptune's Delight" featuring mahi mahi ceviche (my choice) and the "Magic Dragon" (husband's choice) featuring ahi (tuna) and unagi (eel). The menu... More

We were on the Big Island of Hawaii for a week and had many wonderful experiences but our lunch at Sushi Rock was near if not at the top. The creative menu choices, the attentive service, tasty drinks along with memory jarring music made for a delightful lunch. If anything, we over ate at no fault of anyone but ourselves... More

We have been meaning to try this place for some time. We finally made it and were intrigued by the menu. This is not your normal sushi! Local ingredients put together in ways I had not imagined. We decided to go with the chef's choice platter and were not disappointed. We were especially surprised when our 5 yr old daughter,... More

As I posted one year ago, this place has THE BEST sushi! Couldn't wait to get off the zip line tour to get here! My wife and two girls are not fans of sushi so they went down the block for a bite. I sat at the small bar and enjoyed a couple of beers and a Rising Sun roll.

So often we hit a restaurant because we've been out exploring, we've extended well past lunch and we have no idea where we should eat. Such was the case last week and we were pleasantly surprised. Good sushi with a Island twist, good local beer and tasty grilled fish sandwiches served up by friendly servers in a funky little, brightly... More

I read comments here before I go. It is located in a small town that is very north of the island. It is a good stop/rest if you are going to the north end of the island to see the black sand/beach. The food is super delicious here! My husband hates fish, but he loved fish here and said he... More
