“Good Japanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch on April 18. Nice bustling local place. Bento B had a tasty teriaki chicken along with the salmon. Volcano roll was great. Not fancy, but good and lots of variety. Would eat here a lot if we were close by...

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Thanks for the all the reviews pointing us to this place. It looks pretty dodgy from the outside - dont let that fool you! The food is some of the best sushis we've had. The bento box c was fantastic and the volcano roll was a must. Parking outside is easy. Service fine. We kept coming back!!

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

You don't go for the atmosphere, but you do go for the food, excellent prices and friendly service. This is like going into a strip mall walk in food place with Formica tables and metal chairs, nothing fancy here. Sushi & bento box selection is great and food is fresh and good. A lot of locals at this restaurant. You might want to reserve a table in advance and if you can't get a table, consider take-out.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a small restaurant, not a lot of ambience, but the sushi is great, and inexpensive. The back of the menu has some interesting combos to try. The staff was friendly and helpful, which is not always the case in Hilo.

“Seems like a hot spot with the locals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Good food and quick service. The staff were very quiet, not even conversing among themselves. Lots of people were stopping in to pick up their take out for lunch. You could tell it is popular with the locals, which is just the kind of place I'm looking for while traveling!
