Take the time to find this place. Across from Sam's bar, up the alley way from the tattoo place. No place to eat inside and a few tables outside. Fair price and extensive options. They close at 6 PM so go early.

They are busy and closed when they feel like it. Act like they are doing you a favor just to sell you some sushi. Their face would break if they cracked a smile, god forbid!

Great sushi. No place to sit inside. Barely enough room for 2 adults to stand inside. There are a few tables outside. This is the kind of place that you order to go and take it back to your room. Good value.

Kailua-Kona is a very touristy kind of town, the restaurants there reflect this. Hayashi's/ You Make The Roll differs from this mould. Don't let the exterior deceive you. This place is the hidden gem of Kailua. There isn't a large seating area and the interior is just an ordering counter and drink fridges mixed with a bit of a funky-fresh... More

I love this place. You make the roll is owned by the Hyashi's and is run by the parents with their kids (now grown up) helping. I have eaten at Hyashi's for over 10 years and it has always been 100% consistently good. First, this is a "to go" style place. They have tables outside you can eat at but... More

Best sushi for the price. We had to wait 45 minutes (around 11 am) due to so many orders, but well worth the wait. Love this place!

This hidden gem has some of the best sushi on the island and it's cheap! A little hard to find and it doesn't have a place indoors to eat but great for take out. Usually a line but worth the wait. Some unusual rolls and also sushi pizza which sounds strange but is actually amazing. The rolls are large (8... More

This is a surfers hang out. Good reasonable sushi and you choose your own ingredients for the roll. It is not a nice location so plan to take out.

We had free lunch today for a co-worker's birthday, since I have never had tried anything in this place, I wanted something familiar and easy to eat. My manager went there to order the food, unfortunately, they open to the public at 12:00pm, so, we got our food at 1:15 already. I had to go back to work, I brought... More

It can be a little tricky to find as it's behind the main street buildings. it's a nice place for a quick lunch or take out. Given I say quick the wait can be long sometimes, I think we've waited 20 mintues before and prime lunch time on a weekend. Super tastey. There is a small outside patio but the... More
