Hilarious that Open Table came up when I looked this up on Trip Advisor. We had the ultimate fail. Made a reservation for two for a special occasion and when we arrived a few minutes early we were told we could sit at the bar, or wait a long time for "a table." That if we wanted a table we...

We had a very nice dinner at Sushi Shiono. We shared Edamame, Mozuku, and Sunomono for appetizers. We also shared three rolls for our entree: Yellowtail tuna roll, Ahi tuna roll, and the Hawaiian roll. The sushi was fresh and delicious. Service was good. The only complaint is that the restaurant was very noisy (but we found all restaurants in... More

At some places the fish served is not so fresh but here the nigiri melts in your mouth. We had a couple of rolls and 4 pieces of nigiri and we were satisfied. If you are interested in world travel visit our not for profit blog havecarryonwilltravel.com. The waitress was 'efficient', got the job done but not very chatty. With... More

The food's fantastic but it's expensive relative to similar quality food on the island (although to be fair, we didn't eat anywhere else in Kona so this might be because of the location). Nice decor and the service was impeccable. Good job.

What a gem of a restaurant. Excellent service The best Japanese food ever. So many unique dishes and very good vegetarian options too. The peach sake is so refreshing (cold)

They have a wide range of salads - anything from veggies only, to salad with sashimi or cooked fish. All tasty. Mixed sushi sashimi platter also very nice. It was not cheap (bill came to 150$ for two, no alcohol) but worth it. Efficient service.

We took an early supper at Sushi Shiono, a place where Sweetness ate many times while living just upstairs during her sabbatical. She could not/cannot eat raw fish because she is immunosuppressed but that does not restrict her omnivorous husband. She started with ebi sushi (lightly cooked shrimp marinated in ginger juice, butterflied and arranged on a bit of sushi... More

OK sushi restaurant. Not really worth the rave reviews I see on this site regarding taste and quality. Have had much better elsewhere. Good service. Very nice friendly staff. I'd go there again but really wouldn't look forward to it.

When we travel we like to try different local variations on different rolls and sushi. We were amazed by the quality and preparation. Some of the best sushi I have ever had.

We got take out from here the other day during our vacation in Kona. The food was really good. They had gluten free tamari sauce which some in our party needed. I had a nice lunch combo and a couple of rolls. Nice place. I would return.
