I am giving Seiji an excellent review because the fresh sushi and other dishes are so incredibly delicious and authentic. Seiji (chef) and his wife, Chei (server) are a great team. It's a tiny restaurant with 3 tables (table for 6 people, table for 4 and a table for 2), plus 4 barstools where you can watch Seiji due his... More

First of all, if your looking for ambiance this is not the place for you. It is a tiny restaurant that has only three tables and a couple of chairs at a counter to sit at. Fancy it is not. Located in a small commercial square off of Alii Dr. it is not visible from the street. All of that... More

The best teriyaki chicken I've ever had! Friendly staff I will definitely be back before I go home. My friends had sushi and loved it as well.

We stopped here for lunch largely because of TA reviews. They were not wrong: this place is a little gem. It has an unprepossessing exterior, tucked away in a little square off Alii Drive. The inside is quite plain and there aren't many tables—three, maybe four—so I can imagine Seiji's gets full pretty quickly, though it wasn't very busy when... More

Tucked away inside Kona Square is this fabulous sushi restaurant – Seiji’s sushi. The place is small, only 3 tables and the bar, but the food is excellent. We had Seiji special and hamachi and it was so delicious. The fish was super fresh and tasty. We also had cucumber salad and tofu Udon and both were great. Can’t wait... More

great fish, great price. You can tell when it's going to be good when the Miso soup is fantastic. It was! I recommend the Seiji special roll and the chrirashi bowl. I'm sure it's all good though.

Small and limited seating. Food is authentic Japanese, very, very good. I had pork kotsudan over rice, and my husband had sashimi. Were there when it opened and got a table for two. It filled up quickly. Prices are reasonable for this part of town.

Seiji is a Master sushi chef and his wife is a great and adorable maître. Only 3 tables (for six, four and two people). Food is delicious. What a great discover! A MUST

I love this place; one of my favorites in town. BYOB, no frills, just good sushi. But call ahead. More than once I've shown up to see a closed sign on the door during normal hours.
