This small limited seating sushi bar is one of a kind. Plan well ahead for reservations or you may hear "sorry fully booked". Once you manage a reservation you will experience first hand what all the hype is about. Amazing fresh fish, a master chef...More

Part of the charm of eating at Koiso is sitting at the bar and watching the lone chef's nimble hands make every item to perfection at high speed. Forget the stereotypes about a stern and imperial sushi chef who watches and judges your every action....More

Reservations required, small local spot, you have to go in the afternoon when he's closed but working in order to make reservations. He's usually out 3-4 weeks because the Sushi is incredibly fabulous! Be sure to order the Omakase!!

Our friends made reservation several months prior to our arrival to Kihei. This was their 3rd visit to the restaurant. I was surprised that there is no online reservations and why the phone call is needed months in advance. When we arrived I realized how...More
