We always stop here when we first arrive. We get their fresh sushi rolls ($12) and salad greens, croutons and blue cheese and thousand Isle dressing. We also use the dressing as veggie dip during our stay. They also carry Sal's Salsa which is the best.

We visited twice during our one week stay on Kauai. Both times were great food and service. I'd upload a picture of the sushi dish but looks like there are several already. Our second visit was on Wed. after the weekly Culinary Market (see other review). We did not have to wait long for a table once the market wound... More

The sushi was really good and we enjoyed the evening. Some children were seated next to our table, away from their parents which was the greatest but the food and the atmosphere overcame the noise.

Everything goes too fast in this restaurant and nobody literally seams to care of the guests. The restaurant itself doesn't look very clean especially serving raw food. Sushi was not good AT ALL and made myself and my partner sick all night and the day after. I won't recommend this restaurant unless you guys go back to check the quality... More

Sushi was amazing, but stick to the beer as the drinks were watered down even after brining it to the attention of the waitress. Service was average, nice atmosphere.

First night in Kauai and my daughter is craving for sushi. Lucky for us, walking distance from the resort. Sushi is good only and a little bit on the pricey side. The ingredients are really fresh. Nice set up, most buildings are designed back in the plantation days. Friendly and courteous staff. Overall dining experience and sushi is worth visiting.

We were in koloa for short week, trying different food places. This was recommended by a sales person who eats here 3 times a week, obviously gets the seafood chowder, since that is about the only passable thing on the menu. Ordered that and a margarita, how hard could that be, when it arrived it looked like water and tasted... More

If you're staying in the Poipu beach area of Kauai and like sushi, Dolphin is a must-go restaurant. Fabulous and super-fresh sushi and sashimi--probably the best sushi place we've eaten at. Four of us shared a large sashimi assortment, and 3 of the sushi rolls which were works of art---beautifully presented. They also offer fresh fish entrees and have a... More

With the great write ups I was expecting a magnificent dinner. It wasn't, basically a glorified Hawaiian plate dinner. Food was ok but nothing special, way over rated.

Okay, maybe the night of 2/18/17 was just a bad night for the hostess, but she was unfriendly to people before us who also opted to go elsewhere and to our inquiries too. Now we LOVE the location in Hanelei but we will not tolerate spending our dollars for unfriendly service when there are other choices. It is not like... More
