Excellent hidden hole-in-the-wall kiosk like resturant. Quick service, very flavorful, good portions, and well priced. A small area is available for seating and seemed to be adequate. Tried this place twice in two days and everything was great! Cash only.

Simply delicious. Make sure to put it on your list for a quick lunch while you are exploring the market. You will not be sorry.

This is a hole in the wall stand with a few other vendors sharing the area. Tables are provided but it is not an appealing place to dine. That said, this is FABULOUS sushi at such a low price you may wonder how this can...More

Small place but you don’t need much. Delicious and made to order. We were well fed when we left. Highly recommended

The Ahi here was incredibly fresh and the best roll I've ever had. The man who I assume must be the owner is obviously an incredibly hard worker. He ran out of rice about a half hour before close when I went to order and...More

The sushi is hard to beat, especially at that price. I know good quality and this was certainly it - we could have ordered couple more rolls but we wanted to eat there and it just didn't have a good feel. There was sadly a...More

Do not judge this place by the surroundings. It is in an old store that housed a food court. I can tell you that the sushi this guy makes is as good as any I have had. And it is at a reasonable price. Try...More

We stopped in when we learned that the restaurant recommended was closed for a few days. As we were quite hungry, and traveling with a young child, we had desired a sit down restaurant but decided to try the food and eat in the park...More

The restaurant is in a small food court on Kamehameha Drive facing the water. The pole and tiki maki rolls were absolutely delicious. The price will not shock you, as the prices are less than the mainland. In the same court is an ice cream...More
