Service was awesome, first of all. Friendly and attentive. There are so many tasty and interesting things on the menu that you'll want to come back a few times just to eat all of it. We had the chef's plate, plenty for two. One roll had goat cheese, one had poke, one had seaweed salad - and fish! Of course... More

It IS sometimes nice to get away from the resorts and we are very happy to be a part of that experience.We are proud to offer more of a laid back feel but at the same time the quality one would expect from the best on the island! More

We were aiming for bamboo restaurant but it was closed so we came here. One of the servers was so passionate about the food and her recommendations which is always nice to see. The sushi menu looked exquisite but I couldn't have any so got the chicken sandwich. It was good although I'd recommend trying their specialties. My husband got... More

For sushi lovers (and their friends) this is the best place to have lunch. The sushi is amazing but there's also an excellent menu for those who prefer non-sushi options. This place is a bit of a drive for anyone staying closer to Kona / Waikoloa but well worth the trip. Service is excellent and the town is lovely to... More

We always drive up to Hawi whenever we return to the Big Island. I just love the vibe of that little town. For years my husband dragged me into the very popular restaurant down the road for lunch -- you know, the one all the tour companies take their customers to -- which he liked a lot, and I didn't...

So many choices. Not enough days to enjoy them all. Every variety of sushi and rolls you can imagine. Or go for the small bites Trio menu. Soba noodle salad, ceviche and spicy Ono poke complement any choice. Best mai tai on the island. They told us there was another place down the coast with a better mai tai. We... More

What a great little set up they have! So impressed with the selection of dishes, and the sushi was delish. Feel free to just let them order for you - they know what they're doing. Great vibe, art and decor were great too. Worth the trip even if you're not in the area!

I'd like to revel you in tales of awesome sushi in a beautiful locale. I'd like to think back fondly of a wonderful meal shared with my beautiful wife while on vacation to a heavenly spot. But I can't. Why? Because the only thing I remember of Sushi Rock is this incessant dialogue: Where's the restroom? You need a key.... More

Fun setting in a fun old building. Interesting cocktails. Reasonable beer choices on tap. But it was the sushi that sets this restaurant apart and above. Absolutely the freshest fish (varieties of tuna for us) served in a generous amount at a very reasonable price. Staff were engaging and helpful. We even liked the vintage tunes being played. We will... More
