I have eaten here many times when I was at school in Kona. I have never been disappointed with the food. Awesome sushi at an awesome price. The only thing I would change is longer hours.... Seriously if you're in Kona this is a must try place.

Muppet Miss Piggy once said, "never eat anything bigger than your head." The sushi rolls here are almost big enough to trigger the Miss Piggy rule. They are 2x to 3x wider than the standard sushi size we are used to. Made fresh, we waited about 25 minutes for ours and they were WORTH IT! A lot of fish, flavor,... More

I live here so we go there for to go sushi. Yes, you can make what you want to order, but expect long lines cause all the locals go here. Owners also local too, but don't expect them to be friendly cause they are not there to socialize so don't take it personally. Plastic tables outside if you want to... More

The rolls are large. Two is easily enough for a dinner for one person; maybe even just one. You place your order and when it is done they come out and give it to you in containers. We did not know that the rolls are all heavily covered in sesame seeds and would have asked them not to use sesame... More

Make your own rolls. Choose all the fresh ingredients. Also get the Austin roll - spicy ahi, shrimp tempura, avocado and cucumber. Huge rolls. It was a struggle to finish two Austins.

This little hidden gem was recommended by a local. We arrived Friday at 1:30. A line had formed. They said it would take 35 minutes for our order. We sat at an outdoor table, drank a bottle of water and waited. Right on time, yummy rolls worth the wait.

May bit a bit hard to find but consistently excellent sushi for a reasonable price. On a one way alley (right hand side of Sarona off Alii Drive). Normally about a 30 to 45 minute wait for your food and very little outside area for seating but definitely worth the wait. We usually stop by and order, run a few... More

My husband and I were so very disappointed we waited until our last day on the Big Island to visit Hyashi's. He had been umpteen times about a decade before when he lived on the big island and we knew this was on our list of "must go to's." The rolls are just as great as he remembered, as are... More
