Great Bento for a Great Price

We were very happy with our recent trip to Ocean Sushi. We each got Bento Box C which had generous portions of tempora shrimp and veggies, tuna poke, sashimi, California roll, fried scallops and oysters, salad and miso soup. The seafood was perfectly prepared and the miso soup was particularly... read more

We drove from the other side of the Big Island to have lunch at Ocean Sushi, and it was worth it! This is the freshest sushi at bargain prices. The restaurant decor is bland, so just ignore that. This is where locals eat, and there are many choices. Order sushi by the roll, or in bento box combos. They also... More

Maybe it is because I am from SoCal and we have so many good sushi restaurants there...but this place did not live up to the hype. Yes, it is cheap...but then that leaves the door ingredients to the cheap side as well. It was basic sushi. If you have never tried it before, this is a good place to try... More

Great Sushi on Hilo side of the Island. Inexpensive sushi that tastes great and was easy on the wallet while visiting Hawaii. We waited a little for our food because the place was packed. This is definitely where all the locals go to eat great sushi.

Dinner one night. Note this is a bring your own alcohol establishment. The hostess let us wait 10 minutes without acknowledgment. Most of the meal was good however we questioned seeing skin still on one piece of fish-never seen that before. Restaurant was loud and crowded.

This place seems to have been recently renovated in a modern style. Not your typical Japanese ambiance. The room is open and a bit noisy. The sushi was decent and recently priced. The service was decent.

I really enjoyed the new tables, chairs, utensils and especially the new glass cups. The old location had gross plastic cups with bite marks. The atmosphere is very different from the old space, it seems too contemporary. We can't see the sushi chefs anymore. The sushi tasted the same as the old location, it was still good. The service was... More

The sushi here is probably the cheapest in town and it's delicious! My favorite roll is the manhattan. Some of the servers could work on being more friendly though.
