Really delicious omakase. The restaurant is small (12 seats at the sushi bar and one table for 4) so you must make a reservation. The owner/ sushi chef really takes pride in his food and the fish was served fresh. Definitely recommend the omakase which was plenty of fish/rice for dinner. I recommend having your hotel concierge call because they... More

We were eat here, three times, one year ago. The food is really amazing. The chef is very master. We go back to Maui just for his sushi and maki.

A friend in Maui told us about this place. We decided to try it and what a great find it was! The fish was fresh and light. The service was very friendly. Who would have thought that this is in Maui!

Best sushi I've ever had! Very small place...be sure and get a reservation weeks in advance. Seats 10 at the sushi bar and has one other table. Chef Kudo churns out the freshest most tasty sushi you'll ever have. Did I say don't go anywhere else? Enjoy and thank me later. Aloha!!

We were lucky enough to get in without reservations one night, and had the best, freshest, most beautiful sushi I have had in a long time. The shop is very small, with limited seating. There is almost always a waiting list, thus the need for reservations. Locals in the know come here, not only for the great food, and authentic... More

We had received quite a few recommendation for Koiso- we were lucky to get a last minute reservation. The restaurant is family owned, and very small- if you do not have a reservation you will not get a table. We were surprised when we cane in how quiet the restaurant was and were told by other diners it was because... More

Love this place! Best fish you will ever have as everything is so fresh and skillfully prepared. Very small but quaint atmosphere. Has 15 total seats (11 at the sushi bar and 1 table for 4) so you must make a reservation. The place is always booked so no walk ins ever are able to get seated. Also, make your... More
