Excellent sushi. Fresh fish! Very reasonable. The restaurant looks like no frills but don't judge it by the looks. It is outstanding!

Safe fish! is a small place. The atmosphere is not the greatest but the food is good. Too bad they don't use brown rice :( but other than that GREAT!!!

You could walk by and never know that this is a sushi bar. Some of the freshest and best sushi ever. Big portions. A bit pricey, but worth the expense.

Excellent sushi, good vibes. Best sushi and miso soup I had in Hawaii, in fact. A quaint little joint in a quaint little town, without the crowds ...

Stopped here for lunch on a rainy day. Ended up spending $100 or so for sushi for three. We enjoyed the food very much but the bill not so much. My son had a delicious bowl of strawberry ice cream for dessert.

I still think this is one of the best sushi restaurants on the island. Nothing fancy and fairly pricey, but the sushi is always good and the quality of the fish is above average. I'll keep coming back.

Average sushi prices for Maui. Menu was simple, nothing exciting. The sashimi was not fresh and poorly cut. Poor and unprofessional service. I was hoping for better, I prefer supporting local businesses, but I can't imagine wanting to come back.

We stopped for a light dinner at Makawao Sushi. It was great! The staff are really friendly and made some recommendations (not everyone in our group likes sushi). We had steamed rice and four different rolls, including the recommended Philadelphia Roll, which was excellent. We love that you can bring your own adult beverage. It is important to note that...

We stopped here for lunch after a day hiking the crater. We ordered a Garden salad for 9 and receive a tiny salad with ice burg lettuce and carrots. The dressing tasted good but wish we had more lettuce to go with the dressing. The staff was very unfriendly and it felt uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend it.

I loved to stop in a Makawao sushi for a light meal as we explored Makawao, but on this last trip it was blah. My mother's roll was spicy to the point of being inedible. My roll was just ok. Normally I rave about the sushi, but was left disappointed on this last trip.
