Kauai isnt that great for vegans and vegetarians. Here without fuss they made a great main dish not on the menu with tofu, noodles and vegetables. Kintaro another restaurant refused to do it. Waitresses helful and soul music so place a little different. Cant vouch for the sushi itself.

We really enjoyed this place back in 2015. This last trip stood out as not being worth it. They are clearly more expensive and the overall experience was just not worth it. My wife ordered the grilled fish and for Ahi it was around $32. This was the main fresh fish choice at every restaurant and was clearly the most... More

empty sushi restaurant always bad idea but hey off season right? WRONG! #1 if you expect the blood line to be trimmed off your Hamachi (yellow tail) niguri then done order it. #2 if you don't like your spicy scallop role without the spicy and scallop grey and slimy don't order it, I'm talking slimy when eating so run my...

We went to Sushi Bushido on recommendations from several locals, and while the sushi was pretty good, it was clear that the staff was really not that into tourists. The staff wasn't particularly friendly or accommodating, which was very different from their approach towards the locals. So we had a bit of a mixed feeling about our experience.

Waited at length in 2 lane traffic to have a business lunch at this location. Actually turned around to go there, based on other recommendations. Upon arrival, staff flippantly stated that even though we had a reservation, they would not serve us and actually decided to close that day. When asked why they hadn't notified us, they simply said it... More

I grew up in a city with lots of sushi options and have had it countless times. This is hands down the worst sushi I've ever had and it also happens to be the most expensive. The only silver lining is that the service was pretty good. Our waiter was very kind. If you're looking for burned "catch of the... More

We ordered take-out sushi. Plain and simple the sushi appeared inedible. We threw it out rather than risk food poisoning. Also, the price was outrageous for 8 small, falling apart pieces. It's a real shame as you'd expect to find good sushi in Hawaii. Avoid this place at all costs.

Choose a place at the sushibar so you can see your food getting prepared! This is sushi how it's meant to be, no "all you can eat" kind of stuff. The owner and sushichef provided us with some explanation around his dishes and ingrediënts and if you're lucky (like us) you might get some sampels to taste! Would defenitly recommend... More

The atmosphere of patio dining only added to the wonderfully prepared, and exquisite tasting food. Our waitress was extremely personable, and attentive, the drinks were phenomenal, and the entire experience was perfect!
