A group of us ate here during a recent business trip. The food was excellent. I had Teriyaki Chicken with Tempura and it was great. Others in our group had fresh fish or sushi, and everyone enjoyed the meal.

We ordered tsunemono for starters to clear our palate and got a beautiful unusual dish with some large pieces of shrimp and octopus and delicious seaweed . Cucumbers were perfectly pickled. The sushi was deliciously; the fish of excellent quality. The young chef gave us a special nigiri with hamachi belly. Yum!

Best dish. Lobster tempura, anything sushi. Freshest fish. Small place, and you know when a Japanese restaurant in Hawaii is good, by seeing most of the restaurant with local and visiting Japanese guests.

It was my sons last night in town so he chose Sushi Shiono. The katsu was very good, flavorful, crispy, but not oily. I had a tiger roll and it was great. I didn't get to take any home because everyone wanted to sample it. The presentation was very good. The volcano roll was also very good.

We just happened to be in Kona over Labor Day weekend and it just happened to be Labor Day and a Monday at that and nothing was opened. After about an hour of driving around in Kona just trying to locate something opened and something worth eating. We decided to park the car and walk around. We stumbled up Sushi... More

What can I say about Sushi ~ We sat at the bar area - we had a wonderful chef and excellent service. I ordered the Lobster Roll ~ it looked fabulous - but I really didn't like the flavor of the roll. So I ordered the salmon instead (17.00 just for a piece of salmon). The chef knowing I liked... More

Extensive menu, fresh ingredients. Excellent service. Your sushi may very well have been swimming the morning before it was served on your plate!
