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.

A quick lunch here proved to be a winner. Try the double tuna roll and the Ohana roll. The Banzai roll was the big winner. Tea is fine, sake menu limited.

We tried a few smaller restaurants in Honolulu but this was the best food by far . Best seat is at the bar watching the chefs prepare all the meals. Great fun.
