Saw the great reviews and decided to give them a try while in Maui. The drive from our hotel to there was long, but picturesque, so totally worth the time. The restaurant was nicely appointed, but oh the service was BAD and the food was okay, definitely not exceptional. The waiter wanted our order within one minute of our seating.... More

We were really looking forward to eating because of all the strong recommendations however after sampling several must try dishes we were disappointed. We came without a reservation and had to wait around 20 minutes, not bad for Maui. Parking is easy. Boom boom roll: 4 Ginger scallion kampachi sashimi: 3.5 (fish was fresh and good, but the preparation was... More

Super yummy and fresh. Great service, but fills up quick. Try to make a reservation. They accommodated us as best they could. We started going later because crowd dies down.

Maybe I'm spoiled because I'm from Vancouver and sushi is plentiful and affordable here, but I think it was something like eight bucks for a basic negitoro roll, which seems nuts. The food was good, especially the appetizer prawns.

We went there a few nights ago based on recommendations from friends. they said it was some of the best sushi that they've ever had. I guess they haven't had much sushi :) All in all the service was good, the ambience was fine and the food wasn't bad. It just wasn't anything spectacular. We even ordered 4 different things...

The food ias fresh, inventive and delish. Service always good too. Book a reservation for opening, then enjoy 25% off for early bird special before 6. Must book, because very few spaces for walk in. Bring a sweater as the AC works well. Mango spring roll, and panko dusted ahi are the best!!!

We ate her 3 times. It didn't disappoint once. The food is good and high quality. This place is usually busy. Make reservations unless you don't mind the wait. I didn't see a cocktail lounge/bar to wait in either. They have half price items at certain times. Look ahead to see when and what items. It is reasonably priced.

Fantastic as always. The best sushi and sashimi we've ever had! The first night, without a reservation, we waited in line and were the last group to get in. We sat at the bar which was fine. We made sure to order before 6 pm and received our 25% off. We checked and unbelievably were able to get a 5:15... More
