Good Dinner, Goldilocks

This place was just right, just classy enough without being a bad choice for kids families. Good sushi, miso, seaweed salad. It's across the street from Kalama park so when we learned there was a 30-40 minute wait we just took a stroll and watched kids take batting practice and others at the... read more

Ate here for dinner tonight and was told to make reservations in advance which we did. I don't know what the hype is about this place honestly. Is is because it's the only sushi place in Kihei? When we got to the resturant there we so many people in the entry way we could barely get to the hostess stand... More

If you choose to come here, make a reservation on open table. It does get busy. The food was good. Nothing too special. Sushi was fine, though the presentation of it was lacking for me. The rolls weren't cut evenly and some weren't even cut through all the way. The (non sushi) meals were very salty! The miso soup was... More

Omg went with friends and kids and wow. Words can't express the amazing experience we had. We let the waiter help us make decisions and we started with the tempura ahi sashimi. 2 orders and it was good good I could of had 5! The flavor and freshness- very very good. The crab ramen appetizer was amazing and so was... More

the specials are always fried / sauced / mayo-covered (american style) but when you ask for a clean version, it's actually pretty good and appropriately priced.

Great Japanese spot in Kihei, with really good specific recipes you won't find anywhere else! The only thing we didn't like : they don't have any terrace and the main room is noisy. And to finish, it's expensive but that's worth it!

This is by far the best sushi we have found in Maui. I know, I know that is saying a lot. Don't let the decor fool you. Once you taste the first bite you will be hooked. (No pun intended) The shrimp dynamite is off the charts. The beer is cold. Make reservations because the line will be long. We... More

Loved the dungenous crab ramen, California roll, and rainbow roll. Hands down the best sushi I've ever had. Their desserts are exquisite as well. Definitely liked the Kaui Pie the best. My husband amd I came here twice for dinner; the first time with a reservation, the second time without. With a reservation we were immediately seated. Without, we were... More
