If you crave miso soup on a rainy day, this is your place. I have been here countless times over more than 20 years, and I adore the food, the people and place in time it represents. I have always found the food to be consistent and have pretty much always stuck to about 5 items on the menu, my favorites. Japanese breakfast, Bento box for lunch and the Teishoku dinners, notably the Tempura. The sashimi is always tuna, and always high-quality. This is not fine dining, but family dining and have never had a poor meal or experience here.

We spend three weeks on the Big Island every year, and Teshima's is a must for at least 3 dinners while we are there.
This is a family run restaurant started many years ago. Food is excellent, and many locals choose to dine here, reservations are suggested, prices are excellent.

After a first visit with business colleagues I just had to go back. Great sushi and bento but the sashimi is a true delight. this is a traditional family business going back decades. Totally genuine with no airs & graces. fast efficient service and a good menu selection.

Hubby & I had their special breakfast of eggs, pancake, & meat. It was delicious and cooked just right. Teshima's is a family run restaurant that does maintain specific hours for breakfast, lunch & dinner so always make note of that. There food is always excellent. I have had pork chops before & I really enjoyed them. My husband always orders the bento box meal which he enjoys.

Initially ignored this place thinking fish heads and rice. Finally looked at reviews, menu and pictures and decided to go. Wish I had done this sooner. Got the Friday special which was a tray with 9 different items for $14.95. Miso soup, kimche, sweet cucumber slices, kahlua pork, teri beef, fried tofu, panko ahi and 2 more items. Also includes green tea if you'd like. Not wild about miso soup. Teri beef was tricky to eat without a knife. Everything else was very good Service very good but reserved. Will go back to try more from large menu.
