One of the better bakeries on island and a terrific place to pick preprepared lunches such as sushi, sashimi, fried chicken, eggs, donburi or udon. The restaurant is terrific casual Japanese.

They sell a variety of food and many products from Japan. It's like a Japanese restaurant/convenience store.

While we have never eaten IN the restaurant, this was our favorite place to pick up bento boxes. Freshly made, good quality and great value for money.

Yup, did not expect that from a more reasonably priced Sushi bar, than most of the Saipan ones, I am glad that they doubled the size of the Sushi Bar, they had a young Japanese Sushi Chef, who I assumed was the one doing the Great Sushi. I was surprised that it was the older Sushi Chef. On striking a... More

Hard to find but worth the search. Enter the Himawari grocery/hotel entrance and turn to the right to go through "the hole in the wall" where the restaurant is located. Good food, friends liked the sushi. Limited alcohol options and service was a little slow, plus they overcharge for rice a la carte. But overall good.

The food is cheap and affordable if you are looking to fill your belly with days old food. The small restaurant is your best bet as the staff is great and the food is reasonable. As for the store staff, they are moody and could care less about customer service. I've been there a few times trying out different items... More

Visited on the strength of other reviews and wasn't disappointed. Himawari offers sushi, hot food, and an assortment of local additions (plus wi-fi). The space is nice and large. Even with all the tables and counter seats full, it didn't feel crowded. I was there solo from 7-8 on a Thursday night. Staff were a bit more attentive than other... More
