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.

We go to sushi restaurant weekly and this is the First time I saw my picky daughter licked the plate with her finger. She had salad, soup and teriyaki chicken dinner. My husband and I loved sushi and Sashimi plate. Great food and great service. Definitely go back again.

This is a great place in down town Kona. Great Sushi and really good Japanese food. The grilled mackerel is well worth the trip. And such good miso, just like Japan.

When I went to the restaurant, I wasn't thinking I wanted Sushi, I had a lot of rice and fish and wanted to get something a little different. My friend ordered the Sushi and Sashimi plate while I ordered Udon with a side of tempura. There were a lot of options on the menu, not just sushi. We shared and... More
