Superb!

Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for! Extremely fresh fish. Go to eat nigiri style sushi as there are only a few rolls and other menu items. This is traditional Japanese sushi and worth every penny! Must have reservations!

A friend and I traveled to Maui Feb 9 - 17, 2015. We made reservations for Koiso a month in advance, and I'm glad I did. It is hard to find. Keep your eyes out for the Pizza Hut in Kihei. It's several shops down, in the same "strip mall". It's a tiny little spot, but the inside is pleasant... More

Best sushi I have ever had. Before coming here...I would always order whatever crazy rolls were on the menu. After ordering the omakase here...I am a changed woman! Seriously, I crave the simple, super fresh fish and it's too bad I don't have anything as great in my hometown. The couple sitting next to us in the bar mentioned that... More

Very nice place with very fresh sushi. Finding it is a bit of a issue! You need to know it is in the Pizza Hut Shopping center in the back corner with a sign that is 1ft by 1ft.....There is acutally a mexican resturant sign above it. You need reservations as everyone has stated and he will turn away people... More

We enjoyed the freshness of the fish, all our selections, and the interaction with the sushi master. The miso soup was very nicely done! We will go back!

Reluctant to write a review because it takes reserving weeks ahead before your visit to get a reservation but it is worth it. Outstanding fish and service, definitely pricey but we think, worth it.

May be one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been to. It is a really small restaurant so make your reservations early, maybe even weeks before your trip! I'm not joking, quite a few disappointed people were turned away at the door. The atmosphere was relaxed and intimate. We sat at the bar and enjoyed talking to everyone else... More

Hard to get into, very small. Be patient and keep trying, usually best around 5:30 or whenever opening time is. The guy is a master.

The reason to go to Koiso: the fish is extremely fresh. My husband had the sashimi special, and I the sushi omasake. I would have liked it better if the chef changed up the assortment, that is, every sushi assortment ordered was the same 12 pieces that night unless you told him, for example, that you don't want squid.
