I love this place. They got great sushi and even ice cream cones. I go there weekly. This is an authentic Mom & Pop store.

Tobiko sushi is my favorite and it was the best I ever had! So tasty and ice cold. Perfect! We also had the soft shell crab roll, rainbow roll, salmon... More

I have been in this place several times over the years and have had delicious sushi; especially enjoyed the warm, baked ones. Yesterday I went in to see if there were any pastries (they sell Stillwell's items from Wailuku) and picked up 2 pieces for $12.48! The woman that has been there for as long as I can remember has...

If the was top notch, we get it- your service can flounder. But the place smells like putrefaction in a fishpond (its nauseating) and the service stinks as well. What an unpleasant experience I had.. The woman who co-owns and serves is the rudest in Makawao. No greeting and wouldn't even look at me while I ordered and paid. She... More

Excellent sushi. Fresh fish! Very reasonable. The restaurant looks like no frills but don't judge it by the looks. It is outstanding!

You could walk by and never know that this is a sushi bar. Some of the freshest and best sushi ever. Big portions. A bit pricey, but worth the expense.

Excellent sushi, good vibes. Best sushi and miso soup I had in Hawaii, in fact. A quaint little joint in a quaint little town, without the crowds ...

Stopped here for lunch on a rainy day. Ended up spending $100 or so for sushi for three. We enjoyed the food very much but the bill not so much. My son had a delicious bowl of strawberry ice cream for dessert.
