We drove by several times before we could spot the sign. We're glad we did. The sushi was ono (delicious), service was very good, and the food came quick. Fresh fish and a lot of choices. We will definitely be back!

The sushi places I frequent are on what economists call "the efficient frontier" -- you can spend more and get better sushi, but you can't find cheaper sushi that is of this quality, or better quality sushi without paying more. In other words, this is a bargain! Will it be the best sushi you've ever eaten? No, but it will... More

Went here as the guide book recommended it for cheap delicious sushi but did warn about the lack of atmosphere. It was exactly as promised. We had some great rolls that were obviously unique to the place. Wish we could have tried more! The sashimi was fresh and the tempura batter was light and delicious! The service was quick but...

After reading the reviews about Takenoto we tried it again WITH reservations since we have a home on the Big Island. For an 11:30 reservation on a weekday we showed up and were not seated until 12:10. The sushi was average and we actually sent one back because of odor. Usual unfriendly service. Back to Ocean sushi later in day... More

Before we went to the restaurant - I read some reviews. Someone mentioned the kalbi being overcooked or something. I wasn't going to order that so I didn't bother. We've gone there before & I have my favorite - the tempura ahi. We took family (inc. kids) from Kona to dinner. The prices are very reasonable & everyone ordered what... More

Great creative variety of sushi rolls without raw fish. A not too expensive place if you like Japanese style cuisine.

This is what most people would call a hole-in-the-wall, but it would be a mistake to discount it. Service is slow - understaffed? - but well worth the wait. If you like sushi/sushima, try this place.

I only leave reviews for places I absolutely love and this place is fantastic! I've been living in hilo almost two months and this is the first place I have eaten at that I was completely impressed with. Excellent food, excellent service and the prices are unreal! You have to check this place out if you love sushi!

If you are seeking an upscale experience, this is not the place for you . But if you want fresh, good sushi at amazingly reasonable prices, this is it! This place is located in downtown Hilo and does not have a touristy vibe. Lots of locals there. Service was good, but the one waitress got stretched thin as the lunch... More

Yes you can have sushi rolls here, but don't forget to include a tempura side order too. It's one of the better batters. It's light and crispy. There were two waitresses. One with an attitude only matched by her imaginary ego., the other one friendly and sweet. We were ignored and stared down by one, fortunately picked up by the... More
