My family had a great time the kids loved all the rolls we ordered. Loved the Dragon roll and the Caterpillar!

We were disappointed with the quality of the fish as well as with the rolls that did not hold together at all necessitating use of fingers instead of chopsticks. They also do not have a liquor license but do have a sign on the bar...More

Masa and his wife (I didn't get her name) run this small, comfortable, amazing sushi shop on Kaua'i. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, surpassed only by the owners themselves. They have a world map and a US map for you to put a pin...More

Decent sushi at a reasonable price. The couple that own/server are so kind. You may wait a while, but it's cozy and authentic. Flavor is average. Fish is fresh. Scallops were impressive. In all: worth trying, though I'm sure there's a better option somewhere.

This is as local as you get. Not many sushi places in Kauai so people might love to know about this tiny hole in the wall. Excellent and inexpensive and fresh.
