New location with new atmosphere

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... read 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.

We put our name on the list to be seated at 7:15 and were told it would be a 20 minute wait. We were finally seated at 8:00. It took 15 minutes for our order to be taken and a half hour for our food to start to arrive. Our orders were bought out piecemeal and my Ben to didn't... More

Good sushi. Great prices. Friendly service. The miso soup was tasty and I really liked the Mermaid roll. It is not a fine dining restaurant and they do not serve booze, but if you want a simple and affordable sushi dinner, this is your spot.

This place is ok, if you are hungry and want a full stomach meal. Place reminds me of a hospital cafeteria. All white, nothing on the walls,very sterile. Simple,but not a bad place to eat. Service was good and friendly. The food was ok, nothing exciting. Typical oriental food. Serves late,when all other places are closed.

First of all, no sake. Sushi without sake? No. When I realized this, I should have turned around and found somewhere else, but figured that'd be rude so had a few things. Mistake. The 15 piece sashimi plate was made with the most laughably sized pieces of fish. I'd ordered four pieces of saba additionally on the sashimi plate and... More

What an incredible find. Read about this sushi spot in Hawaii Revealed guidebook. So, while waiting for volcano helicopter tour from Hilo, stopped in for lunch. Wow! The sushi was absolutely delicious and the prices were extremely reasonable. Considering that I am from Southern California where there is a sushi joint just about on every corner, I will tell you...

Fresh sushi and sashimi, nice tempura. Excellent price! The two of us stuffed ourselves for less that $35. Our service was GREAT! Matt was super, and the young lady who kept our water glasses filled was spectacular. Just be nice and they will be nice to you! Atmosphere - don't expect fancy. Just enjoy the good food and relax!

Found them based on the travel book recommendation on the way back from the Volcano National Park and was really disappointed, especially two days after feasting at Monstera. Cheap? Yes. Service fast and efficient? Very. Plentiful and generous portions? Yes. Tasty? Not so much. The fish is fresh, but the rice is just a boiled rice, not a real sushi... More
