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).

This spot is not highly touted for nothing. The food is fresh, beautifully served and super delicious. The servers are amazingly friendly and helpful, and the sushi chef is energetic and aims to please. Located a block or two up from the beach in an easy-to-park strip mall, Hayama is the place to go

It is very hard to find very good Japanese food......i went for lunch with a friend .....lots of people but still got very good service......very fast with water and took order and miso soup came quickly......the miso soup was very tasty but i missed the tofu......ordered the taisho combo teri chicken and tempura......very good and fast....the salad was classic very fine cabbage with a nice dressing.....for me it was filling.....but if you want a lot of food this is not for you.......classic japanese smaller portions and looks beautiful.....nice decor to. I thought it was a reasonable price for the quality $30.00 including the tip for 2 people

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.
