Lobster, tempura off the chart good

We're locals. Tons of Japanese restaurants to choose from for sure. The quality of their food is outstanding. Order the sushi boat if you are having a special occasion or large group. So fun and huge. I can't tell you how Ono (good),delicious their lobster tempura is. Also you will see that most... read more

Just wandered into this place while strolling through Kona. Had a wonderful Sushi dinner including a Spider Roll and some great house Saki.

My husband and I have been here a few different times and always have a great time. Lunch is awesome. Great deals on noodles and such. Make sure you go to the restroom while there...heated toilet seats should be mandatory everywhere!

Firstly let me say I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Even though the food is quite good, this was more than outweighed by the poor and quite rude service and the high prices. Its a shame that since they have a location on Ali'i Drive that they feel they can treat their customers as if they didn't care.... More

Nice atmosphere and great food. But, pretty pricey. Beautiful presentation. Sushi was very good quality. Staff are very nice. Have allergies and they were accommodating. They also have gluten free tamari soy.

Small place that fills up quickly at dinner time, Sushi Shiono has a wide variety even for non-sushi diners. Go early or make reservations.

For the quality of sushi the 3 of us had, I felt the price was too high - spending over $100 for a sushi combination plate and 2 orders of rolls plus a bottle of Asahi beer and a guava juice. For that price elsewhere I could have had a more elaborate meal.

What a treat. Just off the main drag. Food was to die for. Nice servers. I had a package dinner and for about $35 it was plenty of food.

It was stunning! Almost Kaiseki like. Miso loaded w little neck clams and tofu, Uni as fresh as I have... More

this is primarily a sushi place, although they do offer a more extensive menu with more traditional Japanese fare. We ordered the mackerel, which comes with soup, salad and rice. Luckily the fish is oily and somewhat flavorful. Otherwise this would have been like eating at a zen monastery....very little flavor or flavorful accompaniments. Also tried the soft shell crab...
