Our family absolutely loved this restaurant from the food to service. We went back twice during our three days on the island. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

We eat a lot of sushi and this was some of the best we've had. I had the sashimi/sushi set which was plentiful and well executed. My wife had a roll and asari miso, both just right. My ten year old enjoyed his udon and sushi as well, leaving nothing behind.

I actually crave sushi at this restaurant on a regular basis... I recently started having the sake and I'm a wine person... must try the furikaki chicken, mongoose roll and the tiger rolls at the very least...this place is not cheap, but don't complain about the prices. Groceries stores are charging outrageous prices for sub par sushi...

We live in SF Bay Area where there are dozens of excellent sushi restaurants. This was a great find on The Big Island. Prices for the sushi were really good, though the cold saki was expensive compared to home. Fish was fresh and flavorful and rolls were innovative. It was also encouraging that several of the clientele were speaking Japanese.... More

I've been visiting Sushi Shiono for several years now and it is a top notch Sushi and Japanese restaurant. The quality of the fish is the very highest, grade AAA. The Sushi chefs are all from Japan. It's as good as any of the best establishment I've been to in Honolulu. They also over some really unique local items like... More

We tried two Japanese restaurants near Kailua-Kona, Hayama and Shiono (see my review on Hayama). Shiono is by far a better place of the two. We had a variety of sashimi and sushi. All are very fresh and very very tasty (these are not the same quality for sashimi or sushi, i.e., could be fresh but can have little taste).... More

New Years Eve 2013 and the place was empty. That should have been my first clue. The culprit was a hamachi roll with serrano chilis and cilantro and yuzu soy. Fish was pre-chopped in a plastic container and lord knows how long it was in there. If place is so great then why is it not packed with customers especially... More

This little place attracted us multiple times during our visit. The sushi was solid and the employees were incredibly kind and friendly. Prices were good given the area, and we enjoyed it every time. Try the Hawaiian Volcano Roll! And the bathroom has a heated toilet seat which was weird...and made me giggle.

You can run up a bill here but the food is fresh and the staff friendly. We had sushi and it is well prepared, we go there often for lunch. They stop accepting lunch diners at 1.30 so keep that in mind. The help can be a little Hawaiian in their attention but hey you are in Hawaii so chill.... More
