We had dinner at Sushi Rock on 2/27/15 and it did not disappoint. We were heading back from Pololu Valley and were looking for a place for dinner. We stopped and asked a friendly local in Hawi and she suggested Sushi Rock. The only thing we didn't like about it is that it's a couple thousand miles from Oklahoma and... More

We had incredible lunch on 3/1/15 with choices per recommendations from Curtis. No need to read the huge menu. Great pepper lilikoi vodka drinks with an incredible roll topped with grass fed tenderloin. The purple sweetpotato cheesecake is to die for. We have travelled the world and nothing compares to Sushj Rocks.

Such a gem of a place! Really unusual rolls (as well as traditional rolls). The edamame had a sesame tea crispy topping which was AMAZING. The Bombay roll was excellent and the purple potato cheese cake was worth our trip alone. Great service kid friendly. Relaxed atmosphere.

As someone who lives in a city with 600 sushi resturants I still believe this resturant to be something special ! The fish is bought from the boats fresh everyday and local beef is featured in several rolls ( unusual at home) . The resturant has expanded to twice the size it was on our last visit so should be...

Born and raised in Kona, so just when you think you have had some of the best sushi, as well as, superb dishes in town, we had friends rave about this place.

Although a bit pricy, the food is excellent. I guess, you get what you pay for. I recommend to get reservations - seating is limited.

Thanks for your review and your comments.Sadly (or maybe not), yes you do get what you pay for.The cost of serving mostly organic food of the highest quality and paying my employees fairly all contribute to the cost.I am so glad that you find us worth it!Aloha. More

We loved the quiet, old Hawaii feel of Hawi and would be regulars at Sushi Rock if it weren’t 5000 miles from our home in CT. My husband loved the variety of sushi and sashimi he ordered, and I was equally pleased with my vegetarian choices.

On our visit to Hawi we had planned to go to a different restaurant but it was closed to a private function. We stumbled upon sushi rock and ended up having some of the best sushi rolls we'd ever had. It was delicious and we were definitely lucky to find such a great place with super friendly staff.

We have been coming here for the past 6 years and always have a great experience and an awesome meal! The sushi is so creative and delicious that you don't even need to dip it in soy sauce when the flavors are so prominent without it. If you like curry, try the Bombay roll- we always try the special -... More
