“Authentic Japanese sushi, noodles, and plate lunches made with the freshest of seafood!”

A great place to stop for lunch or a causal dinner before a concert or play. We like the clean white and uncluttered atmosphere. The owners and staff are charming.

“Always delicious!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

I frequent aka sushi at least once a week every week! We love the food there! For about $7.00 you too can experience mouth watering hamachi Kama. You will not ever find this cut of fish at this price anywhere else! The service there is always so so! Never fantastic but never poor either! I would definately reccommend eating there

“A hidden gem in our town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

Like most of the best things in Hawaii, you really need to know where to look in order to find good food. You'll find Aka Sushi tucked away, of all places, in the KTA shopping center strip mall in Waimea. This small business owned and operated by a young couple has been operating for at least five years now, but without a permanent home of its own -- first in a back corner of Daniel Thiebaut (it was the only edible food in that place) and later the next door Kamuela Deli (ditto).

As a fan of good sushi, I've been a customer for many years, even having Chef Mo cater my parties. What you get at Aka Sushi is an authentic Japanese sushi counter experience using remarkably fresh ingredients (brought in daily from the local fish market), prepared thoughtfully and served with a smile. If there is any better dining experience on the whole of the Big Island, I have yet to find it -- and certainly not at such reasonable non-resort prices.

If you like sushi, you will not be disappointed.
