Location - smack in downtown Kona Service - very friendly and nice and efficient Covid safety - small outdoor patio felt safe - with tables spaced far apart from each other The food - mostly excellent . I ordered the mixed tempura and variety of...sashimi . The tempura was nicely done and the sashimi fresh ( both the toro and the salmon were great ). The little fried baby octopus was very tasty as well . The only dish that I didn’t like too much was the chicken karagge - it wasn’t as tasty as many of the other dishes ... Overall a very enjoyable experience . I wouldn’t hesitate to come backMore

Sushi Shiono was recommended to us by another Kona restaurant manager. It was well worth the trip. Great sushi and service. The prices were incredibly fair, and the sushi was fresh and imaginative. I only took off one star for ambiance. It was a little...bland. But I was too busy stuffing my face.More

On the Big Island of Hawaii it’s difficult to find a good SUSHI restaurant but SUSHI SHIONO in Kailua Kona is our favorite. It’s always packed and busy so you need to make a reservation and make sure you request for either a table or...the SUSHI counter. The counter is typically for no more than 3 people. Any larger parties should get a table (standard etiquette for SUSHI restaurants). SHIONO also serves various Japanese dishes which are delicious.More

We got take out the night before leaving Kona so that we could enjoy the sunset from our balcony. We ordered the Calamari, Yum Yum roll, Tempura Roll, Volcano Roll, Spider Roll and the Special California Roll. It only took 20 minutes for the order...to be prepared. The food was all pretty good and the portions are quite large. We would probably have eliminated a roll or 2 if we had known how big they were. Our only comment is that the sushi is pricey.More

Located in a beach front shopping mall they have an excellent selection of fresh sushi. Highly recommend theahimtuna hand rolls and the ‘mongoose roll’ for those who,prefer a tempura style roll.

We all had a great dinner. Lots of options even for the non-sushi eaters in our group. Fresh fish, big portions, great service. We will definitely return.

We really appreciate our TripAdvisor recommendations which brought us to this sushi restaurant. Top quality lunch for a reasonable price. I had the tempura & nigiri sushi combination which I highly recommend. It came with a small salad with sesame dressing, rice, and miso soup....We live in California and get great sushi here so I was surprised to have such nice quality on the island. Highly recommended!More

OMG - this place is very unassuming, but we were shocked at the amazing quality of the toro and uni. It's some of the best we've ever had, right up there with the elite places we've done in Tokyo, NYC, and Seattle. In a small...town like Kona where the food scene tends to be more laid-back than competitively epic, the quality of the fish here definitely skews towards the latter. Let's just say we only had 5 nights in town, and 2 of the dinners were here because we came back JUST for the big 3: toro, uni, amaebi.More

Good sushi place in Kona, the service is friendly and they have a large menu to choose from including hot items. They have a nice selection of rolls and we tried our standard california (meh), the spider roll (good) and the highlight was the hawaiian...vulcano roll, the macademia gave it a little crunch and it has a nice bite with spiceness. There is also parking behind the strip mall with plenty of spots.More
