Koa was darling and took care of us very well. Dining out with a toddler is never easy. We took advantage of a happy child and went out to eat. Sushi was delicious, service was welcoming from the hostess and all wait staff. Koa was knowledgeable, kind and was a delight to our night out. Will definitely dine here again!

This place was recommended to us as suitable for dining with kids. We made reservations but it seemed they were not ready for our party of 7 (3 kids), when we arrived. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu. Sadly, we were told they were out of tempura which was a desired food option for 1/2 our... More

Sushi was mediocre, as was service. Chef's choice was uninspiring. Waitress smelled like a dirty dish towel. Just misses the mark. I expect more from a restaurant in Hawaii with a strong Japanese heritage. Go elsewhere.

We went not sure what to think because the highly mixed reviews- seem to keep coming. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls with waitress help, and a noodle-crab-jalapeno broth dish that was delicious. We went back a second time (but mostly because we were tired and it was close). The second time the waitress was trying to mentor another... More

We came in at about 9:30pm and was told they were still serving dinner. (They close at 10pm) We ordered some appetizers and we were being encouraged to order our main dish already so we hurried and ordered that as well. Our waitress then came back and said did you want to order dessert, in my head I'm like lady... More

It was good!!! We got in at 5:30 so got the 25% off but we had to wait quite a while fir the food, which would have been fine, except the waitress, Courtney, was so attentive she kept asking us if she could get anything for us while we waited. We had some drinks already, what else could she get... More

If I could give no stars, I would however; I have never been so mislead by reviews on TripAdvisor but this is one is the first!! We had rice rolls with a minuscule amount of fish! They had the audacity to tell me they ran out of spicy salmon; as if that is a fish and if I wanted to... More

We are newcomers to Sushi and Sashimi and this restaurant is a great opportunity to try them. The waitress was very helpful in helping us select menu items and put together a wonderful selection of interesting tastes. For the non Sushi diner, there are ample cooked selections. Will definitely make this a go to place for future visits to the... More
