Funky Cool Restaurant with Fantastic Sushi

We stopped in Hawi during a little circle tour from Mauna Lani Villages, ate lunch at Sushi Rock and then cruised the town. My husband and I loved the sushi. We each had the special--both inside-out rolls with brown rice; my husband's had tenderloin and mine had oho. His was better. Both of us felt... read more

A half hour evening drive up Highway 270 from Hapuna Beach with whales breaching off shore, brought us to the quaint town of Hawi. Sushi Rock is in an old two story building fronting the main street. Walking in we were warmly greeted and seated in a cozy eclectically decorated side room. The atmosphere was very casual, as if we... More

My family and I came twice to Sushi Rock for lunch during our recent stay on the island and both times we had a terrific time. It is not just the food, which is inventive and first-rate, but the friendly and enthusiastic staff (and owner) that make this place so special. You will not be disappointed.

A creative menu where no selection can go wrong. Owners and staff take ownership and pride in seeing that your food is the best and you are pleased. A must do experience on the big island.

Food OK, but I've had better sushi rolls. Service was terrible. We asked for split checks and were told that they were busy and it would be too hard for the kitchen to coordinate the orders. That was reasonable and we said that it would be fine to combine our bill. Unfortunately our order came out piecemeal anyway. The first... More

This is a quaint little restaurant on the Main Street of Hawi. We went on a busy weekend evening, but the team of servers were attentive and efficient. The highlight of the meal was the cheesecake. It's made with a purple sweet potato - absolutely delicious! It would be worth the trip just to try it.

Little Kamehameha birthplace village location among the galleries. Friendly bunch of people there. Some house invented 'rocktails' (Hot as Helltini - Hawaiian Chili Pepper Vodka with red sugar rim) and dishes. Good steady service. Not a raw food fan, but the surf and turf (shrimp and thin wrap seared steak was outstanding. Pupus range $6-$15. Salads $6-$20.
