Be sure to have dessert. All made there by the owner. We had the purple sweet potato cheesecake which was a to... More

Sushi Rock was so good we had to go back the next day for lunch! The shrimp stack cannot be missed. If you are in Northern Koahala you are making a mistake not to stop in.

We stumbled across this place after doing an ATV tour nearby. The food was fabulous & the service was great. We ate there for lunch & had a fun & engaging conversation with our waitress Pam who was both warm & informative. If you are visiting anywhere in the area, this place is well worth the drive, even if it's... More

My husband and I took a road trip to Hawi from Hilo. We ended the day at this wonderful little restaurant. We are from San Diego and have high expectations of our sushi. This place exceeded our expectations!! The sushi was delicious, fresh and they have very unique ingredients that they used in their sushi. We even topped it off... More

We ate here a couple of years ago and loved it. I was worried that our memories may have been exaggerated with time--but when we returned this year, we were delighted to find that our memory had been accurate. We started with a couple of rock pockets--the rock shrimp was wonderful. Had the special, an inside/outside roll, and a great... More

While I had eaten some sushi in the past, the sushi was excellent. I was there with three other family members and they all enjoyed their meals. Definitely would recommend this whether you like sushi or not.

Delicious fish sandwich. My husband enjoyed the omelet. Fun atmosphere! They make different types of drinks with lilikoi (passion fruit)- so many in fact that you can buy their mix. They claim to be the largest consumer of passion fruit in the state of Hawaii.

One of us dotes on sushi; the other doesn't. Both of us were very happy at Sushi Rock. We began with a starter of edamame, so large that we shared it with a couple from Milan, Italy.The non-doter loved her Pololu Salad - organic greens, gorgonzola, Fuji apple, candied mac nuts, and papaya pomegranate dressing. Her entree was "Stack the... More
