Nice little sushi place

I've eaten here a few times and it is always good. The fish is fresh and competently prepared. I wouldn't say that it is inexpensive, but it is good value and worth a repeat visit.

Fantastic sushi - owners are Korean but know how to pick fish and make sushi treats ! beware, large portions .. at least we had the tendency to order more than necessary.

Dropped in again at this local hot spot in Makawao for some sushi with local friends and once again owners Ben, wife Jong and daughter Joyce took great care of us and the sushi was excellent! Had a shrimp tempura cut roll with spicy Tuna and Avocado and it was very nice. Salmon belly sushi and Hamachi Belly sushi, all... More

Four of us shared a fried calamari appetizer, and hand rolls and I ordered a soup/noodles bowl. Every dish was great and the rolls were ginormous! We were batting .1000 with dining, to everyone's surprise.

I cannot et sushi for a while back at home because this is some of the best quality and large portions of sushi we've had anywhere. Real crab. Baked Unaga was outstanding. A hidden gem in this little Makawao "Deli." No atmosphere, so what?

The ambience was very nice. But the food was the deal breaker! Very fresh sushi! Taste was amazing. Only thing was we had to bring in our own alcoholic beverages. No big deal the next store over was a general store. Over all a great evening. Great food!

My husband and I ate here after biking down the volcano. The food was very fresh and very tasty. I ordered butterfish. It was listed as an appetizer, but it came with a big fish fillet, a bowl of rice, and a salad. Butterfish is my reason for coming to Hawaii and this was very good, but be careful because... More

Our family loves sushi, this place had great sushi made by the owner himself Jun (Ben). One of the best home made Unagi sauce I have tasted. We ended up hanging out for almost 2 hours talking with Ben and Joyce (father and daughter). We would surely eat there again.

This place has the hands-down best rainbow roll on the island. The fish is melt-in-your mouth fresh. The portions are generous. All of the options on the menu are tasty. Others may offer more diversity, but for basic sushi and sashimi with good quality fish, you cant go wrong here.
