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!

One of the best sushi chefs in Hawaii runs the sushi bar, serving uber-fresh classic and creative sushi. At the tables, the calimari salad is a wonder and the sunemono appetizer is the perfect little bite to whet your appetite for more. When busy service can be bumpy, so plan to go on off hours for the best experience. And... More

The food was very good. We had a variety of Sushi, rolls and salads, everything was very good. If you are in a hurry don't go at lunch. It is a small restaurant but when they are full it takes time to get your food. The staff was very nice and patient. They took time when we weren't sure what... More
