We were glad we made it into this popular restaurant. Sushi was amazing. Great service. It was really busy but service and food were still great. Easy walk from hotel.

The sushi was some of the best, most fresh I've had in my whole life, but the lightly seared butter fish... We ended up with 3 orders of it. Could not get enough of it. Reasonable wine prices, super friendly service. Make reservations though because at 8pm they were still busy.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here. It was close to our condo at Kapalua Villas. The food took no time. Some creative choices on the menu. We would recommend this place.

If you like sushi, make a reservation or chance a long wait as a walk in, just go! I've been coming to Maui for seven years and this is always my first stop for a dinner out (four times this visit). I go for the amazing food... delicious, fresh, many choices! The atmosphere is fine, although not "fine dining", the... More

Great service, atmosphere and sushi. They have a lot of good different sushi that we have never tried before.

I think that we are spoiled as we come from Seattle where there are many great choices for sushi. On Maui, this feels like the one place to get a great dinner, but I wonder if there are more, that perhaps cater to the locals instead of the tourists. The meals are wonderful and it is always busy. Get a... More

I can see why this place is so popular. The Sushi was amazing. The atmosphere is good too. Make reservations early as they are busy from opening to close. Get there early if you can for open happy hour, or go late for close happy hour. Do not be discouraged if you cannot make a reservation, they keep some tables... More

Great fresh sushi, everything on the specials list was very tasty! Good service and food is out quickly. It's priced like all meals in Maui so a bit pricey but overall worth it! Note the specials are not part of the 5:15-6:00pm discounts.

This restaurant was playing in our room upon arrival, and it looked FABULOUS! KUDOS to the marketing team. The restaurant was nice, the service was swell, portions were small, price was high. My boys are 23, and my girls are 22&19, they had a stunned look on there faces as the portions appeared to be appetizers. Now don't get me... More

Amazing food, great attentive service, worth the price! Totally recommend a reservation, and their reservation system is fast and reliable. The New York strip melts in your mouth, don't skip it just because you're at a sushi place- Terry them both! Seared ahi salad is to die for! Raspberry saki is a must- even if you don't live Saki!
