We picked up some Sushi to go and it was such a treat. We got a special with 40 pieces and it was all so good, very fresh.

It rains in Hawi.(That's Hawi pronounced Javi---not Hawaii) Boy Does it rain and if you need a car wash while on the Big Island you might wait for a thunderous cloud to wash that girl right out of your hair! Seriously, we took shelter in the Sushi Rock and Trio on the charming main drag of Akoni Pule Highway. It... More

We wandered in after a hike to the floor of a nearby valley, looking for any old quick meal and what did we find? Some of the best, freshest and most innovative taste combinations. Great service (on the sidewalk) with expert advice. Worth the drive!

This was our, 5th or 6th trip to Sushi Rock. Our time on the big Island was spent between points North and South, between Kohala and down south past Kokea. Every day we were in Hawi or just passing through, we stopped for lunch or dinner. Still, the best Sushi I have had anyplace, and I have eaten a lot... More

Arrived near 30min before it closes (3:00pm), and she tried to understand my taste and combined it in one roll! Amazing for me who is picky...delicious!! And the green tea was great! Thanks Pamela!

The drive is worth it. The big island doesn't have many restaurants that will delight you, but Sushi Rock definitely will. The quiet tiny town makes you feel like you've discovered something, but the restaurant is anything but. It seemed like everyone was there. Do yourself a favor and order the purple potato cheesecake. It's the best cheesecake I've ever... More

What an interesting find in North Kohala. Sushi Rocks combines local fish and ingredients to make different types of nigiri, sashimi, rolls and apps. It is local style, and the fish is very fresh. The menu might be a little big for my taste with the same ingredients over and over again. We enjoyed a little bit of everything. The... More

My family is kind of at beginner level for sushi, but we really enjoyed this place for lunch. We sat out on the porch, which was very pleasant, and we all really enjoyed our meals.

There were so many rolls that sounded good, I couldn't make up my mind! You can't go wrong with any of them. Many are unique and I'd never heard of them until we got to this place. We only had two rolls (they were good size), but would have loved to try more if we hadn't been saving room for... More

This restaurant cane highly recommended by our VRBO owner and it did not disappoint. The lilikoi mojito was delicious. We started with the Pipeline roll which was a very unique and creative combination of flavors. The rock salad was light and then we had the hokey pokey. The sushi was some of the best I've ever had. They were unusual... More
