We left it up to Hiro to prepare various sushi and sashimi Dishes for our dining pleasure. Needless to say it was excellently prepared and presented. Only one table for four. Sushi bar seating for 10. You have to reserve two weeks in advance.

Always a pleasure to meet and dine on exceptional sushi, sake and ambiance. Tako is exceptional as is the omokase. Feels local and is conveniently located.

We were freezing after the Haleakala sunrise therefore not in the mood of sushi. Instead we ordered curry udon, curry rice and noodle. Not impressed. It's ok flavor but short of the hype. Price is very reasonable though. The shaved ice also disappointed.

Really special place for authentic sushi. We ordered the chief special and it didn't disappoint. The quality is as good as the high end sushi places in New York and in Southern California. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Would recommend making reservation way in advance....More

This small limited seating sushi bar is one of a kind. Plan well ahead for reservations or you may hear "sorry fully booked". Once you manage a reservation you will experience first hand what all the hype is about. Amazing fresh fish, a master chef...More

Part of the charm of eating at Koiso is sitting at the bar and watching the lone chef's nimble hands make every item to perfection at high speed. Forget the stereotypes about a stern and imperial sushi chef who watches and judges your every action....More

Very small space with limited seating so reservations a must. Best to find the chef when they are closed to get your reservation but plan several weeks in advance. Once inside it is a local affair with everyone knowing each other in a friendly community...More

We came here on the recommendation of a friend (who ate every single item on the menu when he went). It lived up to his hype. The California roll was the best I've ever eaten. The Octopus was unlike any I've had before. Really great...More

Reservations required, small local spot, you have to go in the afternoon when he's closed but working in order to make reservations. He's usually out 3-4 weeks because the Sushi is incredibly fabulous! Be sure to order the Omakase!!

Koiso is the best sushi bar that I've been to since living in Japan. The master creates his dishes with flare, and there's none of that trendy sauce (that I hate) on the fish. The fish is very fresh. I had the omakase selection and...More
