I have lived here for over 5 years and finally made a point of booking a reservation at Koiso. And boy, it lived up to the hype! I enjoyed the quaintness of the small space. The edamame to start was a nice touch. Everything we...More

This place is as good as it gets. The sashimi and kampachi sashimi were both outstanding. Tiny word-of-mouth place tucked away in a strip mall has a loyal following. Seats only 12 diners, twice a night. Make reservations long in advance.

Have to call a month in advance because it only seats 15 people. We are in Kihei for a week every year and always go twice. The people are so nice and the sushi is fresh and sweet.

Well we were so disappointed about the sushi that we only had 1 item. The service is poor. It does not live up to the hype.

Fantastic sushi. Doesn’t look like much from the street, and seating is very limited, but it is a hidden gem that is worth the trip. Requires a reservation as seating is limited and we saw several people turned away.

No, when we were there a couple came in and asked about take out since they did not have reservations. They said that they didn’t do those. I urge you to make reservations and enjoy the food in house. It is amazing.
