Food - grilled makeral, baked tuna roll and unagi bowl was delicious. Prices very reasonable. Staff was attentive and courteous. Plenty parking available. Always a stop in Saipan!

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

Absolutely delicious, fresh food! Fish is fresh, the sushi is outstanding and a great ambience. You MUST try this place, if you want to try good, affordable Japanese cuisine. A bonus: it's connected to their store and bakery. Try the blueberry cheese bread.

Himawari is a grocery store, bakery, Japanese restaurant- 3 in one stop shop. The Japanese restaurant is adjacent to the grocery store. I have not tried it. But I do enjoy their freshly baked breads. A variety of selections of bento boxes are available daily. A selection of asian products and produce are available. You won't leave the store empty... More

Some of the best Japanese food i have eaten. You must visit the attached bakery and shop that sells Japanese items. The cream cheese bread is out of this world. You can order in advance anything from the bakery and they will package it for you to take out. I visit every time I am in Saipan. Service is good... More

Food was good, especially their sashimi and the varied seafood dishes. But the place was small and crowded - which could be a good sign. I've been there many times and each time i went, they were packed. In the early mornings, you can drop by for some japanese snacks with local flavor, like the Spam Sushi.

We went here with friends. It is a Japanese grocery store with a restaurant and sushi bar added on. It is located off the main drag so is frequented by locals. The service was fast, the food was very good and fresh, and the prices were very reasonable for Saipan.

Located on a side street in Garapan, the Himawari store and restaurant are a delight. The sushi, sashimi, soups, bakery items, etc. are first rate and you may never enjoy such reasonable prices anywhere else. Fine of take-out and eat in at this friendly local spot.
