Have been going to this restaurant for years. Each time, it seems, the menu prices are jacked up. Love the teriyaki tuna, but, for $38.00 I can find something equally as enjoyable elsewhere for a lower price, same atmosphere.

Arrived at 4 pm. Could only order appetizers. Decent but pricy. Clearly told the waitress we wanted two checks. Refused to separate had to split total bill. Really is kind of a dump. Would not recommend.

Food was disappointing honestly but still not bad. Just not up to hype. I’d say for context vs Manhattan sushi a 6/10.

Was sick the next day which is hard t blame on one spot but the tuna was a little off in retrospect.

Overall I’d skip it if you want a legit culinary experience but if I were on a budget maybe I’d give it a shot. MAYBE

One star

Very good food but way over priced. Too busy and waitress having trouble handling it. Market value piece of fish $38 one side and that’s it.

Food was a bit pricey and fewer options than I expected, but really delicious! Once seated, service was great and great experience. Probably good to know that they don't take reservations and given the probable rain in Kauai, good to be prepared that you will have to wait outside or in nearby shops. You are able to take a drink outside, but can't stand in the bar area, but there's cocktail tables with large umbrellas.
