My husband and I came here for our date night and were very happy with our food! This is the best place to go on the island for fresh sushi. We split a rainbow roll and my husband had the spicy tuna roll (which was very delicious!) and I also had the yellowtail scallion roll. We really liked the atmosphere... More

We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and were seated near the Samurai statue. The shrimp shumai was delicious, as were the sushi dinners. For dessert, the strawberry mochi ice cream hit the spot! I'd definitely return next time I'm in Hilton Head Island.

This is the best sushi bar in Hilton Head. Wonderful staff and service. Very fresh fish and lots of daily specials. Our favorite spot on the island.

I take a ladies group there during the winter months. My ladies never want me to take Hinoki off the list! They are wonderfully accommodating and the service is excellent considering our group numbers around 25! Can't wait to take my husband there!

The sushi chefs are fun to be with and can let you know the best and freshest fish to order. Love the selection of cold sake and their rolls are always good.

I was looking for the Hibachi place we went to in February while visiting Hilton Head that apparently no longer exists and with the help of GPS we ended up here. Just about the same food, just a different feel. Family of 5, seated right away. Fun experience for the kids to sit with their legs going into the floor... More

I have eaten in some very high end sushi restaurants, but Hinoki tops them all. The sushi is so fresh and the chefs are so skilled. I'm planning a trip to HHI in January for the sole purpose of eating here every night.

They don't perform. Food comes out in boxes. Seafood was good, rest was very bland, fried rice was fried, no veggies, tempura was soggy. Miso was excellent, salad dressing not good. Would not return.
