It was a nice experience.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary early and had dinner at here. It was nice, the waitresses were friendly and sweet. My boyfriend had the squid stir fry, which he absolutely loved! And I had a kimchee beef stew that was great. The dinner dishes were just as expected for the price... read more

Went in here and was ignored for fifteen minutes. Then when I complained the owner told me, "It's not my problem." I couldn't believe it.

After passing by this restaurant many times I decided to give it a try. I went to the Sushi bar, and after a long wait, an older lady who seemed to be acting as the hostess came and gave me a menu. I ordered a glass of wine to which she frowned at me and left. She came back with... More

I am relatively new to sushi and one member of our group does not like it. The menu options satisfied everyone's palete. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent.

He told us to get the BLANK out of here. I understand people have bad days but this was unbelievable. Owner... More

We were traveling with a native Korean and wanted to change it up one night. Totally satisfied with the freshness and flavors of the food. Grilled the chicken, bulgogi etc--very fresh and very tasty. The service was very very sweet--our waiter was from Guam and could not have been nicer. Definitely recommend it!

Off the beaten path in Maui, Isana's had awesome BBQ dishes along with good and fresh sashimi. We ended up ordering too much food but look forwards to going back again.

I am torn as to whether I should review Isana at all. My husband and I had a very strange experience at this little restaurant. We reserved a spot for dinner, and were seated at the end of a shared table immediately upon arrival. The woman (late middle-age...possibly one of the proprietors?) who seated us took our order for one... More
