Great portion sizes

We went here last night for dinner. It was a bustling place, but with good service. The menu is large and has a wide variety of seafood. The food took 30 minutes to come but the restaurant was completely full. The portion sizes are enormous. The fish was fresh, as was the rice. However, we... read more

Missed the mark by a yard. Tasteless fish and high prices, the sushi chef needs to learn how to plate and roll sushi.

Came here for dinner with family for casual dining. Family style seating, casual place. The address that shows up on Google isn't updated. They are on 250 Keawe St, not 235. They right at the corner. We ordered Don Buri, tempura, Yaki Soba, some hand rolls and specialty rolls. All was pretty good, except the smoked salmon roll was kind... More

We went to this place because it was highly recommended by the owner/manager of our bed and breakfast. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be many decent restaurants in Hilo. He highly recommended Ocean Sushi, so we tried it. We were not blown away, so to speak. For starters, the place has an antiseptic, frosty-freeze feel to it. Hardly seems like... More

Ocean Sushi was just we needed after a long day in and around Hilo: we really enjoyed eating amazingly fresh, high quality sushi in a relaxed local atmosphere. Great range of sushi dishes including both traditional and local varieties. The Ahi Poke with macadamia nut was really fantastic!

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.
