Very good sushi at a reasonable price

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.

The cream puffs and bread are so yummy. I could have filled up on those. We went at lunch, the service was quick, food was well priced and good.

The first time I went here I was in Japanese heaven. Delicious food at super reasonable prices. Their bentos are top notch with quality ingredients, portion size and very cheap. A wide variety of Japanese baked goods, sushi, bentos, hot soups, drinks and candy. I loved this place so much I even picked up a gigantic bento for the trip... More

i really hate their service. Honestly, they are very slow and not even friendly to the customers. However, the food is great, just the food NOT the Service..

4 people in my family ate here for lunch. The food was tasty. Our waitress was attentive until she had to go wash dishes in the back. After she left us, we no longer had attention. I had to find another waiter in order to ask for the check.

I often eat here and I must say I really like their food. I have never been disappointed with every order. It's also a plus that per serving is at reasonable price. The only thing that is really disappointing is when you hear the staff fighting / arguing with other staff at dining area. As a customer you want to... More
