Great Sushi and service in the center of Kona. Can't beat the fresh seafood. I recommend ordering the boats which have sushi, sashimi to share.

Located in Alii Sunset Plaza in Kona, Shiono's is a great lunch stop featuring air conditioned sushi bar and small dining room. The friendly wait staff buzz around the room taking orders, filling water glasses and serving food efficiently in a jam packed room. The lunch plates all come with a small bowl of savory miso soup. After many visits,... More

This is an excellent authentic Japanese restaurant this side of the Pacific. I would not go anywhere else to eat Japanese food when in the Big Island. Wonderful staff, excellent menu choices and great value for money! Highly recommended!

We were driving back from Volcano Park and the family wanted good sushi at 8:30pm before our late hotel check-in. A Google search yielded Sushi Shiono and I quickly made a reservation from the car. We parked and got a bit lost finding it as it's within a bunch of shops on the side perpendicular to Ali'i Drive. If you... More

The rest of the fam loves sushi, I just get cooked food. They all really liked the sushi and the soba too. My teriyaki was good, loved the salad dressing on the salad and the kids loved the miso soup. We would return if given the opportunity. It was pretty packed too with big groups so they do cater to...

Compared to Sushi Night at the King Kamehameha, this place was light years ahead. We got there just before 6 and it was already packed. You know it's a good sign when they're that busy and they just opened for dinner at 5:30. The fish was fresh and the rolls were outstanding. My wife's Tonkatsu was tender and moist. My... More

Service was Awêsømë. Thanks much. Food gr8. Salad dressing was Lovelŷ. Miso ok. Ton Katsu (pork) a bit salty for my taste. The dessert was the "Bomb" best. Thanks again.

Have had a taste of everything tonight with my wife : tempura, ton katsu, sushi, sake, Jap draft beer. And we can ensure you it was excellent! Definitely one of the best Japanese restaurant I have eaten, by far. We will probably come back before leaving Hawaii. However, it is a bit pricey, so if we weren't on holidays it... More

Enjoyed a relaxing sushi meal with family. Asked for a hand roll of the soft shell crab which was tastefully done. So nice to have traditional sushi off the beaten path!
