My husband and I ate here twice, Sunday and Monday nights when they offered 1/2 price menu from 5pm-6pm. The sushi was very good as were the other entrees. However, I would not be inclined to eat here when it was not 1/2 off. You...More

Food was delicious - the fish was very fresh and cooked well. Waitstaff was a little slow on drink refills but not a real problem. Would recommend it highly.

We always come here frequently when visiting big island. This time things aren't as good as I remember from 2 years ago. They are still tasty, but aren't as impressive as I remembered (maybe my taste has changed a bit since then). Compare to the...More

Food was good but if you aren’t going for happy hour it is very expensive. Sushi was excellent but it took a long time to arrive. At least a 30 minutes wait from the time you order. I would go back but be prepared for...More

Food was ok. It wasn’t the best but not the worst. The sushi was sliced very thinly so I thought it was pricey for what we got. The worst part of this place was the service. We were sat for at least 10 minutes and...More

The sushi and poke we had was very fresh tasting. The rolls were unique and our waitress was very accommodating when we did not want to have masago in the spicy tuna. She worked with the chefs to get us something similar. The service was...More

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.
