The food was alright, the decor very dated. We chose to pass on the buffet that was offered and instead did a la carte sushi. The service was acceptable.

Ok...the Ihilani roll is my favorite but sometimes you got to get the buffet...bring your appetite! Great service and ask to sit outside.

We had one guest having a oa carte - the other the buffet. Flavor of the calms, sashimi and main course roasted fish were great, possibly a need for some rice. The finesse with the fish could have been matched with the tomato and cucumber, but overall - no complaints. Partner ha the buffet, and they stayed with the entrees.... More

We are staying at the JW Marriott and have been for about 5 days now. We tried this place on Friday night. It was my husbands favorite meal since we've been here. He really like the sushi. I am not a sushi or seafood person. I ate the chicken and steak - they were very good. I don't understand the... More

OK to have the buffet or a small bite but not the evening out as expected. We had a la carte menu with cold sake. Starters were good. Tempura shrimps and tuna. Main course was a bit dissapointing. The sushi and sashimi platter was just average and the softshell crab was just OK. The chef definately need more classes as... More

They typically host buffets on weekends so check first. We have never eaten a la carte and enjoy their buffet immensely. They have three primary sections - sushi/sashimi, Japanese warm/cold cuisine and desserts. The sushi selection is impressive and very tasty. They do not present "basic" sushi selections like mainland California rolls, but many from their specialty list. I particularly... More

The restaurant is located in the J.W. Marriott. This was the best tasting, freshest Sushi I have ever had. The Sake flight with three different types of Sake was a great complement to our meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Not sure where Floyd and qanik ate - but that wasn't the experience we had. We had the seafood buffet on a Friday night. Service superb, Sake list extensive, only down was no sushi on the sushi table. I love sushi, my husband not. So he ate lots of steak and other wonderful things from the buffet. I had some... More
