This is a great sushi place with great selection, friendly staff, and very affordable prices! ($4 a roll!) You can watch them make your order fresh. My husband and I got a couple rolls one evening to go as an appetizer, and it was some of the best sushi we've ever had. Our only regret was that we didn't go there every night we were on the Big Island.

We are from NY and this is the best sushi I have had in a really long time!!! So incredibly fresh! The unfiltered sake was supreme! Highly recommend this place. Oh and the best part is that it costs only $4 per roll.

We (group of 8) went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local bartender and we were not disappointed. The range, price and quality of the sushi was fantastic. Personally I had the spicy Alaskan which was salmon and spicy aioli which was delicious. The service was also great.

Spelling the name of this restaurant correctly makes it a lot easier to find, especially when you are walking the streets of Kailua Kona. It's Shimaichi Sushi - the reviews on spot-on for the 30-piece platter + our server Andrea was fantastic. A longer review will be on the correct site

When you are in a place like Kailua with such easy access to very fresh fish, you would expect to find fresh sushi and Sima-Ichi does not disappoint. The added bonus here is that not only are the sushi and sashimi fresh but the pricing is excellent. On the recommendation of our server, we decided to have the local plate rather than one of the combos of more traditional offerings. It was a suggestion worth taking. Our combo plate included hogo, tombo, ono and opaka as well as a Califonia roll and ahi. The very local fishes were a revelation, especially the hogo and opaka which turned out to be our favorites. All of this was well presented and the price outstanding for such quality. This is not the easiest place to find and the parking lot is a hazard but it's worth the trip. If you are nearby and can walk to it, it is perhaps the better option.
