Sushi is my favorite food. Our family is from California, and we are accustomed to wonderful fresh servings. We ate at Shiono on our first night in Hawaii, and we were quite disappointed. First, the sushi was just "okay", not stellar. The hamachi (yellowtail tuna)...More

We ordered the "big boat" combo, and it was a lot of food. The 8 pieces of sashimi were buttery and wonderful. Sushi rolls were good, tempura shrimp and vegetables were fine, and the steak and chicken made this a huge dinner for 2. Served...More

Great little sushi bar hidden in a strip mall on Ali'i Drive. Sushi was fresh, tightly rolled and the sashimi special was outstanding. Service was hit or miss, very busy and only two harried servers.

The very best sushi in town. Talk to Jason at the sushi bar into making one of his original creations. So fresh and beautifully tasteful. Doesn't hurt that his boss and sushi partner was trained at nobu. Restaurant is very clean and professional.
