Excellent sushi for reasonable prices

Service was very slow at lunch, but the sushi was excellent and, uncommon for Hawaii, reasonably priced.

Fresh, clean tasting rolls, cheap eats in our book. Don't be put off by the simplicity or lack of alcohol as it's clearly all about the Sushi at this place, as it should be. Tables filled with locals is always a good sign as well.

Clean minimalist decor, friendly efficient staff, good food. But be warned this place is popular if you don't book for dinner be prepared to wait 10 - 20 mins for a table. They do do take out if that helps I've been to Ocean Sushi for both lunch and dinner and will happily keep coming back. Dishes are well priced,and... More

Obviously a local favorite, this place looked more like a hospital waiting room than a Japanese Restaurant. The young man who seated us was good looking but barely spoke and there was little indicating the place was Japanese at all. I thought they had just moved and the waitress said no a year ago from across the street. No art... More

The sushi here was good. I expect fresh, and it was. We ordered four rolls to share and none of them disappointed. The prices on the roles were quite reasonable, especially for Hawaii, and service was decent, though it was a long wait to pay our bill.

I went for lunch and the sashimi was awesome. Tempura was good too, nice and crispy. Great value as well. Tried to go back the next day, but they were closed.

We came here because we heard they had good sushi, rolls, and bento. The food was pretty good and not over-priced, but we really wish we had gotten it to go. Aside from being ignored for the most part, we were delivered the wrong plates (some of it was right so we started eating not realizing...) after 5 mins we... More

We stopped in at Ocean sushi for lunch with the family. We seemed to be the only non locals in the restaurant so we knew it would be good. The Ahi Poke was good as well as the hospital roll. The service was a little slow but nothing to worry about. The prices were pretty good as well. Would definitely... More

Great staff, Sushi very enjoyable. Definitely a place the locals frequent often. Try the Ahi Poke and the Big Island roll.
