I had their Chirashi bowl, lovely selection of fresh fish, rice and vegetables in a bowl and it was great. The selection of fish was varied and perfectly prepared. I'll be back!

Large newer restaurant with casual modern interior on downtown Hilo corner lot. Large portions. At our table we had Bento Box A, Chicken Katsu, and a Chirashi Plate.

Fantastic food at an exceptional price. The hostess sat our family of six by bringing a table from the other room and getting chairs that weren't being used at other tables.

Great sushi, and really solid teriyaki. The only thing a little less than excellent was the ramen, but the menu is really wide-ranging, and everything else we had was great. And the prices cannot be beat (or the portions! huge!)

Hawaiiians do their sushi a little differently than others....they add mayonnaise, sometimes spicy, sometimes not. But if you can't take that factor, then this sushi is not for you. However, if you find this tasty, the Ocean Sushi is for you. It's so fresh, so beautifully presented and the restaurant is always bustling. You'll find Bento and tempura, Ahi Sashimi... More

Don't let the lack of ambiance deter you. This is a local sushi/sashimi hangout with a good and extensive menu but not the mainland high prices. Just come hungry and enjoy.

I'd say this is the best sushi in town. What a large menu! Huge selection of all kinds of sushi, rolls, entrees, noodles, everything! Super friendly staff too. The seafood is actually very fresh & everything is cooked & prepared perfectly. I'll come back whenever I can!

Very inconsistent service over the years, & last night, not so great food. We have been going, on & off for over a decade. Usually extremely slow & inconsistent service keeps us away for a while, but their food brings us back. Las night 4 of us were seated in a 2/3 full at 5:30 & stated we were ready... More

We really didn't know what to expect here. The restaurant itself is very light and airy but doesn't really feel particularly Japanese. The food was really fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. We were so impressed we went back the next day for lunch as well. Worth noting that if you want alcohol you will need to bring it with... More

Clean and spacious indoor restaurant. Lots of tables and excellent lighting. I ordered "D" from the sushi menu. Cali roll, Ebi, Salmon, and yellowtail sushi, and miso soup. Perfect amount. Everyone raved about their meals. Friendly waitstaff.
