Very good sushi and local style food

Ocean Sushi has really improved over the past year. The sushi tastes fresher, and the food is flavorful. For the money, it is a very good value. They offer three different "bento boxes" that give you choices ranging from shrimp and vegetable tempura to salmon to grilled chicken. The menu also... read more

The food is good here. The sushi is fresh and the bento boxes are a combination of a couple of items on the menu. I strongly recommend reservations if you have a big party or you're going on the weekend. It's usually crowded. Make sure you have time as the service is not the fastest.

The food here never disapoints! The specialty rolls are great and not too expensive. This is said to be one of the best sushi restaurants in hilo. The service isn't the best. It's defiantly not the fastest place around not where you want to be if you're in a hurry! You can bring your own alcohol as they don't sell... More

Service wasn't at the speed of light, but we have learned to just "relax bra" after two years of living in Hawaii (Oahu). For Hawaii, it was quite respectable. This was our first stop on the Big Island and we enjoyed our sushi especially for the price, which almost tipped me to giving this place four stars. The food was... More

Came here after long day in the rain. friendly staff. Great choice of sushi we had a Bento Box and a mixed sushi. Great food and generous portions. Only down side was that we were asked about dessert and given the cheque prior to finishing our food. I'm not sure if that's an American thing. But not used to that.... More

Delicious, reasonably priced, but busy! We come often for dinner, but normally take out. Friendly staff! Recommend the deep fried fat boy ice cream as the appetizer!

My husband and I entered the restaurant (it's not a deli) at 12:05pm. We were seated at the end of a table for 6. A few minutes later, we were asked to move out table for two away from the rest of the table so that a party of four could be seated. We did that immediately, and left a... More

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 felt that the rice to... 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
