This is my "10" sushi. For price and quality in Honolulu, it is the best. I always rate all my other experiences with sushi based on this place. Off the beaten path and where locals go. It's not in the middle of the tourist area...More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Arrive with an empty stomach and you will walk out full! Absolutely delicious Japanese food! Authentic atmosphere and reasonably priced. You will be given complimentary miso soup, salad and ice cream so no need to over order.
