This was "my first time" at Morio's and didn't know what to expect. Was invited by my boss and his daughter to join them and 20 something of their friends and neighbors for the 8:30 pm seating on a Wednesday night. I had heard that this place had only two nightly seatings and it's booked months in advance, so I... More

It is my first time to eat there based on TA & yelp reviews. The restauant is small (4 seats for sushi bar & 5 tables). We orderd the sashimi platter, toro, scallop, and amaebi. All are fresh & sweet. The nigiri comes with 3 pieces. The service is excellent. The waiter even offered us the free beer. What's a... More

My friend and I heard about Morio’s from a helpful staff member from our Aqua Aloha Surf and Spa hotel when we asked for a good (but not too expensive) sushi restaurant. Although it was annoying to actually get a seat there (keep reading), it was well worth the wait! This restaurant is BYOB and very small. After a short... More

Last nite's celebration of my son-in-law's bday was one of our highlights in dining pleasure. Their new location is very tiny, but the food....oh, sooooo ono..and the fish is very fresh. We were served immediately with three apps: a nalu green salad, a pancake type dish and tofu mixture. All three were excellent and a great way to begin our... More

Morio is gifted, Morio could have a restaurant several times the size of the one he has. Morio's is so popular with those in the know that you have to make reservations days in advance, even for a party of three, and there's an excellent chance you will have to sit in the passageway at tables rather than inside (which...

So I called up, got morio, and found out that reservations were two days out. But, he said, I will take your number and call you if something opens up.... More

We found this place by accident while walking down Kuhio. When we first went by there were NO open seats which told us that it must be good. All of the sushi & rolls were very good and the ginger salad dressing made my mouth water for more. It is a smaller menu and the space is very quaint. I... More
