This place is amazing! Might just be the best sushi in town. The prices are great. The quality of the food is great and the service is great. It is rare to get all 3 from one restaurant.

Unpretentious local sushi restaurant. Very fresh inexpensive sushi in a nice location away from the touristy craziness but close to the major attractions. Great outside seating. Very pleasant experience. Friendly. Lay back. Highly recommend for sushi in Kona.

Ok it's not fancy, the sushi isn't photogenic. But if you are hungry for sushi you'll leave happy and not broke. Beer, wine, and sake are available to complete your meal.

Pretty cheap and pretty good quality on the sushi/nigiri/rolls that they have. Had the sampler platter and it was nice, specially the hint of wasabi underneath the choice of fish. Pretty good place if you are looking for something good to eat at Kona.
