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.

My wife and I went here based on trip advisor reviews. We called ahead for a table, but we're starving and settled for counter space to get food as fast as possible. Both on the call and the service we received from the woman who "waited" on us did not impress me. She was not friendly or attentive, unless you... More

I AM a local and I've eaten Sushi in MANY places and over a LONG time. What Watanabe and Allysa create here is truly an oasis for sushi lovers. Note the other reviews, cuz when you understand their 'seating/serving system' you will have a better experience. OK back to the Sushi.....THE MOST flavor-able fish (all kinds), exquisitely prepared, and the... More
