Sushis are innovative and taste great. On par with Nobu or Zuma (Hong Kong). Even the sandwiches are highly recommended.

Sushi Rock is a little off the beaten path, but worth the trip to Hawi on the north tip of Hawaii's Big Island. Owner Peter Pomeranze greeted us and helped us with menu selections. Seared ahi was prepared from tuna fresh from the market (less than 2 hours earlier) and shrimp rolls wrapped in tenderloin steak were way too good.... More

My wife and I enjoyed our meal. The sushi was good and there were some creative rolls. The kick me cocktail was spicy as advertised. The food was excellent, service was good. Laid back, island style.

We stumbled into this place with no reservation and no clue what we were in for. We are in Hawi, well off the beaten path on the Big Island and we are not expecting much. What a surprise, the creativity and imagination of their menu combined with the freshest ingredients around deliver a fantastic dining experience. It's a small place... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Lapakahi State Historical Park. This is the last place in the small town of Hawi. If you don't like sushi you can still enjoy a meal here. Besides a wide variety of sushi, there is also an interesting selection of salads with homemade dressings, sandwiches and entrees. They serve some local beers, and... More
