We eat ‘here’ every trip to the ‘big’ island — and even tried the Aspen location a few years ago. Simply great seafood/sushi. On our last night we tried a ‘new’ (for us) dish — the Ono Tataki. A simply stunning dish — my wife and I have eaten at many great restaurants — but we agreed this dish is one of the best we’ve experienced, ever.

Had dinner here last weekend. Sliced rib eye steak and seared ahi were great! We also had to try the special sushi roll....excellent! Topped it off with a molten lava cake and bananas foster...wow! It was very loud inside so I suggest sitting outside. The only downside is that it's located in a shopping center, but definitely one of the better restaurants in Kona.

We took our friend Lisa to her birthday dinner here and had a great time. But you may want to re-pack the wallet first. The restaurant was very nicely layout for each party to have there own space. The tables were not on top of each other. Our appetizers and meals had a very nice presentation, the food was tasty. The sever was very good with the perfect bland of being taken care of with out hovering. We brought a bottle of wine with us and the uncorking feed was pleasantly inexpensive. We had two lava cakes for the desert with a happy birthday candle and song.

It was a rainy evening when we dived into Kenichi in the Keauhou Shopping Center. We did not have a reservation but were graciously seated indoors and speedily served with a smile. Our meals were excellent: A tender steak for my husband, tempura shrimp for me, followed by Bananas Foster. Delicious! You don't have to be a sushi eater to dine well here. Heartily recommended.
