Don't let it's cover fool you. This is some amazing sushi.

If you don't like this place, it may be because of the wait to get in, the long wait to get served, or the lack of attention you might feel in such a tiny location. But make no mistake, this is, as we say, da kine sushi! Pricey...? Not for the portions you get. Fo' real! There is no fresher... read more

My wife and I just dined here and were pleasantly surprised. I had the sashimi dinner and everything was fresh and delicious served by a very talented chef. My wife got the udon and she loved it. I have never tried a more rich and flavorful udon broth. Excellent, two thumbs up.

My husband and I love sushi and we eat out constantly. We read the reviews and were excited to try this place. Wow was it a huge miss!!! Do NOT waste your time eating sushi here. Here's why... 1. The menu is super basic. No exciting or unique roles or flavors. The sashimi was average in taste at best. 2.... More

In my opinion some of the best sushi you can get on the island. Be aware that it is basically a one man operation. If you want to get in and out, go somewhere else. If you are a foodie, you found the spot!

I've been to Maui at least ten times in my life and am always on the search for yummy Sushi. You'd think with being so close to the ocean, it wouldn't be hard to find, but, guess again. Sushi Paradise is a nice, quaint restaurant with sushi that is ON POINT. One thing to note is there is only one... More

Excellent sushi, carefully, classically prepared. Not really a tourist joint, but small, with slow service so it is common to be turned away unless you reserve ahead.
