Makawao at lunch time is not a happening restaurant place. We walked all around and only found this, an Italian deli and a Mexican restaurant open. We felt sushi at least would be fresh in Maui. We were right, it was. It was also very expensive and the service was so bad it was funny. We had to go to... More

We had the rainbow roll and salmon skin roll both of which were very good. The rainbow roll was more expensive than usual but worth it given that the fish was fresh and it wasn't loaded with rice. Now the down side why we won't be back. The ambiance was unappetizing in that the waitress/cashier/owner (?) looked very worn down... More

This is where locals go to get Sushi, you will not be papered, and will not be blown away by the atmosphere. What I can assure you is that you will have some of the best sushi you will ever eat at prices that don't get any lower for such high quality fish. Relax, you are in Maui, enjoy the... More

When you rate sushi, the foremostcriteria has to be freshness. The fish was delicious. Miso soup, too. We ordered take out on two occasions, so cannot comment on the service or atmosphere in the restaurant, but service and ease of take out order was fine. Sushi is an ideal Maui meal and Makawao Sushi didn't disappoint.

I really like this place and eat here on each trip to Maui. It is a bit out of the way, and that is part of the ambiance I like. It is not a high-end LA style sushi bar, it has its own local flair; It is a family run business. You will see a couple trends from the reviews... More
