“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Great sushi and we loved the food that was done on the hibachi.
The fried rice was perfect.

The server was not very knowledgable about the steaks or menu in general. We went with friends and this was their first time here. The drinks we had were terrible. We mentioned it to another server. They gave us hot saki to make up for it. We were told that they werent going to charge us for the drinks. However they did. We weren't going to make a big stink about it. The server gave us the wrong bill. They need to work on their service. Might be back.

“Where's da Fish!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Ok, 3 trips in 2 years to SPI and each time I let one of my guests or co-workers talk me into going to this unorganized, lack of sushi knowledge about their product & service. I can appreciate Island-time but people are usually starving when they've been out in the Sun, Surf & Sand all day. Kohnami,get better servers, selection of quality fish and get your Fridge on a lower temperature so my sushi isn't like a jello-shot at a Frat-party!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

You will get a lot of food here and the show is excellent! Try any of the appetizers, as you won't regret it. Having them cook in front of us was a great form of entertainment for the kids too!

“Average food, above average price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011 via mobile

Despite what other reviewers had to say about the wait for the Hibachi seating, we sat right down, ordered and the chef was right there. The food and the show were plain vanilla for a place like this. The check was sure a surprise, but then SPI is a vacation spot so..... On the other hand, we have found most other eating places to be very reasonably priced. Not bad, not remarkable.
