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

This little place, in an old building that may or may not last through lunch, has a very interesting and extensive menu that it delivers with style and flavor. The welcome is friendly, the service is intelligent and attentive, and the experience is thoroughly enjoyable. After being racked by indecision trying to choose from the many sushi offerings, we took... More

I recently had the extreme pleasure of dining at this quaint little restaurant . Javier was amazing team member of the establishment. The salads are to die for and the sushi excellent. If in Hawi drive past the Bamboo restaurant and proceed directly to Sushi Rock for a better menu, better service, and staff that treats their clients like family... More

The sushi at Sushi Rock was incredible. Extremely creative and very tasty roll combinations. This restaurant is in my top 3 favorite sushi restaurants ever. In the category of my other two favorites are Koi in NYC and Katsuya in Brentwood, CA. YES Sushi Rock is this good!!!

Had a fantastic ahi roll. Fresh, flavorful ahi, what I think was real wasabi, and island Aloha spirit makes Sushi Rock rock. Loved it
