Very pleasant evening sitting outside and ate sushi and edamame which was delicious. Then the mains filled us up but were not very exciting although tasty enough, teriyaki chicken was a bit bland and fatty! . Salad was great. Service very quick and very friendly....More

Had lunch set of sushi. Good quality at moderate price. Appropriate for business lunch, too. It may not be so romantic for honeymooners.

Very authentic japanese food. Freshest sushi I've ever had & highest quality ahi. Wine & Sake grossly overpriced. Stick w/ the beer. Our favorite item was the Tonpei cheese yaki (omelette). That was amazing!

Stopped at this Shushi place on the Beachwalk in Honolulu. Really cool location. Small restaurant. Really good and fresh rolls. We had “Hawaii Sashimi” which was all local caught fish, big plate (and price) but worth it.
