“The best sushi !!!!!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

I have been a fan of Chef Mo for years even before he opened his restaurant Aka Sushi. I can tell you that his sushi is some of the best I have ever tasted. I travel for a living and frequent sushi places all over the world and not very many of them can compare. If your thinking about a delicious meal in Waimea please stop by and visit him and his hard working wife Akiko. You will not regret it.

“Very good sushi”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

The food was great, sushi very fresh and tasty. Udon come to the table very hot, a bit on the saltier side. The price is very reasonable. Very friendly service. Go check it out if you're in the area. I give 5/5 because overall the price and food is good. I tired other sushi on big island, this one is better than all others. Of course, can't compare to sushi in Vancouver.

“Amazing, fresh sushi”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Everytime I go in there the food is perfect. The walls are nearly bare and they usually don't have music playing so the atmosphere is a little weird but the food is excellent!!
