I stopped in here during my Kona vacation and I was disappointed with the quality of the sushi.  I ordered the rainbow roll, tuna nigiri and salmon nigiri.  Only the salmon nigiri was good.  The tuna was devoid of much of its flavor, while the rainbow roll lacked any resemblance to other rainbow rolls I've had.  As you can see...

I wanted to like the sushi more because the service was so nice. We came here because the other restaurants in the 'mall' were full. Go with a basic sushi - or ask them what's freshest?

We have had sushi at 3 different establishments while staying in Kona and the food here is the best of the three. It is a small place and sort of off the beaten track but still technically on the main drive. We only ate sushi but it was fresh, tasty and melt in your mouth quality. If you are interested... More

We went to this place because we wanted to try a new restaurant. We were so disappointed. We ordered sushi rolls that were written on the special menu board. The chef kept looking at the menu board to figure how to make it. When we received our food, the fish on the sushi rolls was rancid. The tempura udon tasted... More
