Hinoki has a variety of Asian offerings, but its specialty is sushi/sashimi. What's especially nice is that the menu accomodates less experienced sushi eaters as well as experts. We had no reservation on a Saturday evening, but the restaurant seated us within a few minutes. We started with softshell crab legs, then enjoyed a seafood salad and a chef's tasting... More

Nonetheless, being a Saturday if filled out quickly. The kids dinners are 10 dollars or Less, though my daughter ordered from the early bird menu so she could get... More

Our experience can be summarized by good food but inattentive service. Our group of 5 wanted to find a sushi restaurant on Hilton Head since my husband and teenage son love to try different sushi places. We arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night and were seated after a very reasonable wait. The restaurant appeared to be at 70% of... More

This Japanese restaurant is very good. In fact, it is probably the best one I have ever been to. The seating is in a bamboo style room with lots of bamboo accents. I ordered the tuna sashimi as well as the rainbow roll. The sashimi was excellent and the rainbow roll was very flavorful with just the right amount of... More

My friends and I love sushi and have enjoyed it all over - this place holds up to any. And having nice, clean flavored, sushi for a change was a treat. Especially recommend the slice scallop starter. One ordered it and should have put a fence around it since the other two raided it excessively since it was so good.

My husband and I came here for our date night and were very happy with our food! This is the best place to go on the island for fresh sushi. We split a rainbow roll and my husband had the spicy tuna roll (which was very delicious!) and I also had the yellowtail scallion roll. We really liked the atmosphere... More

We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and were seated near the Samurai statue. The shrimp shumai was delicious, as were the sushi dinners. For dessert, the strawberry mochi ice cream hit the spot! I'd definitely return next time I'm in Hilton Head Island.

This is the best sushi bar in Hilton Head. Wonderful staff and service. Very fresh fish and lots of daily specials. Our favorite spot on the island.
