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

We stopped by one night for dinner for four. A great menu with items that I hadn't seen in California. The quality of fish was A-1. Beer, sodas and sushi, $160.00 for four. One of the higher priced sushi places in town. Four stars due to price and service. Waitress took order and brought it. Could have got the same... More

Spent two weeks in Kona before Ironman 2013. Soon got addicted to Lava Java and Sushi Shiono. How couldn't you - espresso in the morning and sushi at night. I digress. Sushi Shiono has an awesome menu. Their Boats were a total blast and we've been searching the world ever since for a tasty version of their Volcano Roll. Got... More

Casual sushi with friendly service. Toro was great -- $7.95 for 2 pieces was reasonable. Big Island abalone was a treat. We found the sushi rice a bit dry. They obviously specialize in rolls with thin slices of tuna and salmon precut in the case for fast service. If you want Edo sushi experience, this is not the place. If... More

My wife and I ate here tonight and we had their Shiono Boat for two. It was fantastic! Service was excellent as well. I will certainly eat here again.
