We love sushi and this seemed like a good place to check out. I love the Mauna Lani area and the shops are nice. Monstera was good and the sushi was very fresh...as expected. Our server was extremely knowledgable about the menu and that it...More

Excellent food and drinks. We have returned multiple times and have never been disappointed. We prefer to sit outside. Not the most elegant restaurant, but the food, drinks, and staff more than compensate for this.

We've been here several times over the years and we've always enjoyed our meals. We tried the noodles for the first time this visit and the monstera udon (cold noodles) were very good. The tuna tataki is fresh and flavorful. I'm still thinking about it....More

My wife and I ate at Monstera on our first night at the nearby Mauna Lani resort. I'm not a sushi eater but found plenty of other choice to share. Not too expensive, either, by local standards. A good change of pace.

Came here with 2 friends for dinner. We had several plates, miso butterfish, crunching spicy tuna roll and calamari salad. The salad was one of the best ones I have ever tasted. Service was great and food was wonderful. Will definitely return,.

Our experience here is probably an exception but it was unpleasant enough that we will not go back. We had reservations and were seated promptly. All good for the first 10 minutes and then a party of 7 guys who had evidently had been golfing...More
