Before we went to the restaurant - I read some reviews. Someone mentioned the kalbi being overcooked or something. I wasn't going to order that so I didn't bother. We've gone there before & I have my favorite - the tempura ahi. We took family (inc. kids) from Kona to dinner. The prices are very reasonable & everyone ordered what... More

Great creative variety of sushi rolls without raw fish. A not too expensive place if you like Japanese style cuisine.

This is what most people would call a hole-in-the-wall, but it would be a mistake to discount it. Service is slow - understaffed? - but well worth the wait. If you like sushi/sushima, try this place.

I only leave reviews for places I absolutely love and this place is fantastic! I've been living in hilo almost two months and this is the first place I have eaten at that I was completely impressed with. Excellent food, excellent service and the prices are unreal! You have to check this place out if you love sushi!

If you are seeking an upscale experience, this is not the place for you . But if you want fresh, good sushi at amazingly reasonable prices, this is it! This place is located in downtown Hilo and does not have a touristy vibe. Lots of locals there. Service was good, but the one waitress got stretched thin as the lunch... More

Yes you can have sushi rolls here, but don't forget to include a tempura side order too. It's one of the better batters. It's light and crispy. There were two waitresses. One with an attitude only matched by her imaginary ego., the other one friendly and sweet. We were ignored and stared down by one, fortunately picked up by the... More

Ocean Sushi is a favorite treat. The trick is knowing the right combination. Personally, I like salty sweet and scrumptiousness. So I go for Ell and Ahi avocado dishes. Keep in mind at the moment two restraints are operating out of the same space. My advice is to look at both menus and mix and match them.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple of locals from Captain Cook and from friends who lived in the Hilo area. We were warned that it was a hole in the wall but the food was almost all you can eat. We googled it and found it was open from 12-2 and 5 - 9. We got to... More

The menu is huge, the decor is blah, the joint was busy at lunch, the prices are low, but most importantly, the sushi is bland. We saw others with non-sushi items -- maybe that would have been a better choice.

At dinner, ordered a large combo plate of sashimi, some rolls & Iniri. Very delicious & we were stuffed. Tea was nice & miso soup for a dollar was good. My Japanese wife was impressed. Flew out from Hilo a few days later & had lunch here before the flight & brought some take away too. Food was again great... More
