Lived up to the rave reviews. The food was very good and tasty. We had the cooked sushi and a fish salad special of the day with a really well balanced balsamic sauce. Tried 2 of the noodle dishes off the appetizer menu which was ok (bangkok and sesame noodles). Dessert, sweet potato cheesecake, was a real treat! A bit... More

Hawi is a bit of a drive but the area is beautiful and if you stop at Sushi Rock it will make the drive more than worth it. It is not your typical sushi because they offer ingredients like apple and macadamia nuts but it is very good. We went a few times on our last trip to the Big... More

Not a lot of food, but very tasty. Steak was medium instead of medium rare but the flavor, tenderness and caramelized onions made up for everything. Good service too. Go here.

Sushi Risk has an amazing menu of sushi and sashimi. Yes, it's a very small and quirky place but the food is excellent. You will get things here that you get no where else on the island.

I do think it is appropriate to first off let folks know what to expect if dining at Sushi Rock. This is not a traditional "sushi bar". They had maybe 4 "fish" varieties (tuna, snapper, shrimp, eel) the night I visited (I was there at opening so it's not like they ran out of others). These seafood choices were used... More

Thanks so much for your detailed review.I totally agree with your assessment and general description of what we do.The only comment I would add is that we can provide a more traditional sushi if that is what you desire but it is not what we are known and appreciated for.Many thanks for the the time and thought you put into...

We picked up a couple of rolls there today. Both were excellent, but one had a very Italian feel with goat cheese and pesto. That probably sounds bizarre, but it was soooo good. We're here for a week. We'll probably go back.

We really liked the sushi there. It was nice, fresh and creative.I enjoyed the pieces with mahi mahi fish and another ones with an apple and goat cheese (very unusual for us). Staff were friendly, we didn't have to wait too long and the final check was just right for the quality we got.
