Some people like this sushi joint, but I found them to be slow, really grumpy, and the sushi to be pretty sub-par. I consistently get better sushi at Genki sushi...so I expect better from a smaller, local joint than the "fast food" of sushi.

On a slow Sunday afternoon, we ate at a this small "neighborhood" sushi shop. The somen salad tasted okay, but they used iceberg lettuce. The tempura udon was tasty.

The sushi is fresh, the service is friendly and they have provided many, many lunches and dinners for my family. We love ordering take-out and eating it at home. While the parking can sometimes be a problem, there is rarely a long line in the store. To get you started, try the Brandon's sushi. Once you are there, you can... More

The food is great. Some things you should order, some things you shouldn't order, and some things you can't help but order. The service, however, is terrible. Not very terrible, just terrible. One chef was lazy and as a result, screwed up. She didn't cook my spam roll, and served it straight from the oval shaped spam can. She also... More

Today's visit was very disappointing. Service was not even one star, but Jasen's sushi roll was good. The counter help and older Asian lady working were extremely rude and not friendly. They chose to ignore the two young ladies in front of me, even when kindly asked "Can we order something?" After we all waited over 20 minutes for our... More

Seriously, this is some good sushi! I have had a lot of sushi in many places across the US and this is some good sushi. I would highly recommend the Crunchy Dynamite! The Buble Tea is a great addition to the sushi....go for it!

This is another quick stops when we don't want to drive out of Manoa Valley and want something lighter than pasta or Thai food. Our favorite is the Uncle Jasens which is a 6 piece nigiri of spicy ahi and avocado. The fish is all previously frozen, but the spicy sauce hides the "previously frozen" taste. The price is about...
