We had the Shiono Royal Boat for 2 ($83--worth it--all served in a large boat). The tuna and salmon sashimi and the beef teriyaki were the best of the dish, for me; the chicken and beef teriyaki were the least liked by my wife. The lobster tempura had its lobster taste overwhelmed by the taste of the batter, "but that's... More

I'm confused by the folks complaining about price considering the quality and freshness of the food, and that it is Hawaii. My wife and I ate here twice, for dinner, and neither bill exceeded $50. The portions, especially on the rolls, are generous. I have to mention the spicy mongoose roll. It was perfect. On our first visit, Sherry was... More

I make it a point to visit Sushi Shiono every time I come to Kona on vacation. I've eaten at some "very good" Sushi places around the world and this rates at the top for quality, variety and specialized dishes. I've been treated to some very amazing dishes when ordering "Omakase". Kai, the chef, has come to know me as... More

the food was great and service was as well. Sashimi was priced right; the steak meal was a little pricey but worth it! Steak was perfectly cooked.

Fresh sushi and nice service. It was one of the best we have ever had. Sitting outside was nice, the soup was great but try the yellow tail. Mmmmm....

This place has it all. Run and cooked by Japanese crew. A large selection of cooked dishes as everyone would normally expect just sushi sushi sushi. The sushi is wonderful and amazingly fresh. A little pricy but so worth the trip. Liked how they also give a selection of sushi samplers

Delicious!!! Beautiful presentation! My hubby, 17 year old son, and myself love Shiono. Their sushi is extremely fresh and it tastes so good. I especially like the Spicy Mongoose (my personal favorite), the Philly Roll,the volcano roll and the Tempura Roll. Priced from $12 - $15. (Large servings for each roll ordered) My son is a big eater so we... More

There are several sushi spots in this area, but I was told specifically to try Sushi Shiono -- I was not disappointed! As you'd expect from the area, the fish was very fresh and the menu variety was quite impressive. The Mauna Kea Roll I ordered was similar to a favorite roll of mine back home (along CA's Central coast... More
