“Not Worth It!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2007

To begin, the service was terrible. There is always just one server, ours was rude and slow. He acted put out by simply having to wait on us. We had to get up & go to the bar to get refills on our drinks, there was only one other table in the restaurant. He actually yelled at my friend for asking for a substitution. We waited for the food for almost an hour & a half... no kidding! The food is susposed to be fresh & creative; we found it to be quite ordinary and unrealistically priced. one sushi roll can cost you $20.... and its so not worth it. My table of four, with no alcohol racked up a $100 bill for lunch and we left hungry. I was actually angry about my sushi rock experence when I left. It truely sucked!

Sushi Rock is in the little old town of Hawi which is just about on the northernmost tip of the Big Island.
This was our first experience of Sushi and the advice and resulting food was a wonderful experience. The large menu varies daily.
There is only room for approx 25 but the place was busy on both our visits. A very happy atmosphere.
The area around is beautiful, back into the lush countryside after driving through the desert and lava fields noth of Kona airport. Takes approx 1 hour from the airport. Drine noth on 19 and take a left at the first stop sign on to 270. Follow that for 19 miles into Hawi.
Worth spending a night at the rustic Kohala Inn to really enjoy the atmosphere and relax. The Kohala Inn is an old plantation in and is approx 100 yards away.
