Nothing fancy here just an AMAZING, fresh sashimi dinner! It included tempura, miso soup, tofu side dish, and small veggie sides. We started with yellowtail collar as an appetizer - scrumptious! This is a Kona gem for sure.

As mentioned in other reviews, this restaurant is tucked away from the crowds. The tenzaru soba there is great and the flavors are very authentic. Very similar to a small countryside restaurant in Japan with a touch of Hawaii thrown in. Friendly service.

This is an authentic Japanese style restaurant. Little over priced for dinner but for lunch a good value. Has the typical kaiseki combination (but not as extravagant as in Japan).

We love sushi and when we were visiting Kona we were happy to stumble into this place. The sushi was very good and the service was good as well.

This restaurant has terrible service. If you ever get to order, the food is pretty good and if you get all of your order and before you are too famished. They may have changed the name and the management, but at least the old service...More

I would think, you would have to call and make the reservation. I think they would have that capacity, but a reservation would make sure you are all seated together. It's worth it👍🏼....enjoy!
