Good sushi-good prices

This small sushi spot is a bit hard to find but worth the look. The furikake chicken is delicious as is the tempura. A large sake selection- consider making a reservation as they get busy. Very good service.

Nice quality sushi at very reasonable prices. A good solid place to eat right in downtown Kilua. Would go back again

It is located in the marketplace. Food is good and seating is quite comfortable. We ordered the sushi boat and it was huge. Love it.

This is a popular restaurant so do make a reservation if you go. That said, our group found this restaurant a disappointment, based on reviews. We are sushi and sashimi fans, and the offerings here were average. The $32 sashimi sampler in particular was very small and limited. Service was friendly and efficient after a lengthy wait. Not a bad... More

We went to the restaurant based on reviews. Found it to be nothing special. We ordered a tempura appetizer and a salmon skin salad. The tempura was ok, but lacked seasoning. The salmon skin wasn't crispy, but the salad was tasty. We got tuna and salmon nigiri, which were both very good. The California special and spider rolls were underwhelming.... More

This is a very busy place so first off, make a reservation. Our greeting was pretty lukewarm to the usual sushi restaurant but I noticed other people had very enthusiastic greetings. I didn't think much of it. The Volcano Roll was superb (fresh and surprising) as was the Garlic Ahi sashimi (flavourful and delicate). But take a pass on the... More

A friend recommended Sushi Shiono for our quest to find good sushi on the Big Island. The establishment lives up to expectations and does not disappoint. This cozy restaurant serves authentic Japanese sushi and other cuisine. You won't find a Korean or Chinese business masquerading as a Japanese restaurant (though some folks are fond of that fusion feel and food).... More

Not too far from the Royal Kona Hotel where I was staying by foot this restaurant is located in a group of shops. There is no doubt the menu and look and feel to Sushi Shiono sets it apart from the other Sushi restaurants very nearby. It serves alcohol which is one advantage over its competitors. I checked with the... More
