Sushi is fresh and portions are average. If you are a big eater then you will want to double your orders. Really small and you will definitely need reservations at least a week in advance. Don't expect to just be able to walk in and get served. Not ideal for large parties.

Love this little restaurant!!!! I tried to make a reservation on Tuesday for a Friday seating, but unfortunately they were all booked all the way until the following Wednesday. We were not staying in Maui for that long... My husband and I still wanted to try our luck and walked in on Friday night...all seats were occupied, but the waitress... More

Even after reading all the positive reviews, we were sceptical to have sushi in a hole in the wall restaurant like Koiso, especially after our trip to Japan. We were blown away by this restaurant. Just by walking in, we felt transported back to Japan with the decor and the japanese-style welcome. The restaurant is owned by a Japanese couple... More

This is our favorite Sushi restaurant on Maui. It's small and only holds about 16 customers. That makes it hard to get a reservation. So please stay away. The fish is so fresh. The owner takes great pride in what he does. The unagi is to die for as is just about everything. Can't wait till we can find another... More

If you are a fan, this was some of the best sushi and sashimi I have ever had. Omakse came with a 10 piece nigiri sushi plate that included 3 or 4 kinds of tuna, the best uni I have ever had (I am really picky when it comes to uni), anago, flounder, ebi, and more. It was $45/person for... More

I have never done crack, but from the experts to the addicts, it is said to be something you don't want to do even once, because you will become an instant addict. Sushi Koiso will make you an addict of quality sushi. If you have never had sushi before you come here, you will forever be disappointed. Sushi will never... More

I booked here after finding it on google searching for "Best Sushi in Maui". I made a booking and turned up on time. The owner asked if it was me by name and pointed to a reserved spot for me. I ordered the omakase and shortly afterward I was presented by a beautiful wooden plate full of vibrant and fresh... More

This hole in the wall sushi restaurant is well worth the visit to this strip mall. You MUST calla an make a reservation as its packed and their is only one table and seating at the sushi bar.
