To celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, my wife and I have just returned from our 10th trip to the Hawaiian Islands. The Big Island of Hawaii has turned out to be our favorite, due to the fact that it has less traffic, more beaches and an active volcano. With every trip we try new restaurants and post our opinions on TripAdvisor. This trip was no exception. On the last evening of our stay we decided to have a light dinner and opted for sushi. Another couple at our hotel had recommended Sushi Shiono in downtown Kailua-Kona. What a pleasant surprise. The service was great and the food was wonderful. This place is Japanese owned and operated. When we were seated I looked around and it seemed as if half the people eating dinner were either Japanese or of Japanese origin. It was like eating in a local restaurant in Osaka, Japan, which I had eaten at 45 years ago. This place brought back a lot of good memories. The Sushi and Sashimi were very fresh and the Tempura was lightly breaded with a crispy Panko crust. If you’ve never tried cold saki, you might want to try their sake flight. They offer small glasses of different types of sake, to give you a feeling of what’s available. Overall this was a great dinner to cap off a wonderful vacation.

We love this place. The food is so fresh and lovely. Fresh tofu, amazing sushi, oh and try the house salad. YUM! Incredible selections of sake (we love the sake sampler). Definitely our choice restaurant when we go out to Kona.

Don't bother especially if you actually crave good sushi. Typical place that caters to a big party. I was actually moved twice during my visit. The octopus is bad and way to thin. The scallops are a bit old. Tuna - also old. Just don't.

Hey if you love gas station sushi - this is the place.

If you are a fan of sushi you need to go here. SO GOOD! The price won't matter once you put one of them rolls in your mouth.

A wonderful Sushi restaurant with good prices.

Food was superb, and portions were massive, but luckily they cater for take outs too so we had almost 1/3 of our food left to take home.

Not the best location as its tucked away inside a small shopping center but the food makes it well worth a visit!
