As locals, we visit Sushi Rock frequently and enjoy EVERY meal. The staff is very welcoming, efficient and knowledgeable. Curtis is so great! Feels like home. The food is unsurpassed. Eclectic, imaginative and fresh. Quite a bit of the meal is from local orchards and gardens, and of course from the sea. Gotta go!!

Since the last time I visited sushi rock, I have become much more inclined to find vegetarian options for eating out. Sushi rock, of course, has great fish and chicken options land my family chowed down on many of the specials, including chicken parm sliders and ahi/apple/cucumber/avocado rolls. I had a spectacular garden roll with sundried tomatoes, mushroom, apple and... More

My husband and I drove up to Hawi having read the reviews on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. The menu had a huge variety of sushi- particularly rolls- that we hadn't seen before. We ordered several to share and they were excellent. Also, the Mai Tais were the best we had on the island.

Very different sushi did not know what to get at first. I didn't see any of my favs on the menu. Curtis was our server and he talked to us about the menu and let us know some of the finer points. We ordered and were very pleased! The service was over the top!! Have a sandwich with your sushi... More

Not our first time here -- if we lived on the Big Island, guess we'd be regulars. Perhaps we're fans. But we're not soft touches. This little place is just terrific. Everything's carefully prepared, very fresh, and almost too good. Lots of old standards of sushi, but also a lot of creative, nowhere-else rolls, like the Bombay Sunset, with ahi... More

At first glance, it feels more like a rusty Hawaiian sandwich shop then a sushi joint. Even if your not into house rolls, go for it. Ask your server, they have good advice.

If you like sushi this is a must go to place. They take sushi seriously and are creative about the combinations. We loved the Kohala, with poke wrapped in crushed macadamia nuts. The other dining choices in Hawi are also overpriced but not very good.

Thanks so much for your comments.Just to address your pricing comment,running a business in Hawaii is extremely costly and serving food with only the best ingredients is an expensive undertaking.I charge what I need to in order to serve quality food and stay in business.Thanks so much for coming and enjoying what we do here.Your support means alot to us...

Never had sushi like this before! Amazing flavors using what's local and available. The desserts are nothing less that amazing as well. We asked lots of questions and the owner gave us the rundown on what they do. Very much worth the visit. Its pricey for what you get but the flavors make it worth the meal.

I returned tonight for the 11th year to my favorite sushi spot world wide. Sushi Rock continues to delight every visit. Tonight the kohala roll and the Who's a Shrimp with seared beef were my favorites; so fresh and a meld of unique flavors.
