A sushi roll was only 7 dollars here. In LA, it's at least 13-16 a roll, so I decided to try 6 different rolls, because vacation and all... anyways, of the 6, two of them were decent but the truth is, I'd rather pay 13 dollars back home and get quality sushi. the short ribs on the other hand were...

First time we got takeout. Took awhile since they were so busy, but my son and I really enjoyed the sushi we got. Ate it at our hotel outside. Second time o took both sons. One got a noodle bowl which was huge. He loved it. And my other son and I got sushi again and miso soup. Again. Delicious.... More

Serving previously frozen salmon must be some kind of crime in Japan, but obviously not in Hawaii..... I had the worst Salmon Teriyaki ever in this restaurant. It was so dry and chewy I had to send it back. This should not be allowed to happen in a Japanese restaurant. To their credit, they replaced it with some vaguely decent... More

Ocean sushi has a very good menu and very good food, but there really is no atmosphere in the restaurant. The service was rather slow, we only ordered two sushi roll items and it took almost twenty five minutes before it was delivered to us. There were other customers that arrived after us and had larger orders, but received their... More

My wife & I intended to dine here, but the restaurant was packed with a long wait for a table, when we arrived around 6:00p.m. Due to the numerous good reviews and many local recommendations, we decided to order take out & eat in our hotel room. We were not disappointed. In hindsight, we were rather pleased we ordered our... More

We've been here a few times now, and it's been our "go to" spot for sushi. They have lots of options on their menu that there's always something new to try. We've had their bento, nigiri sushi, specialty rolls, hand roll, soft shell crab, cone sushi, deep fried fat boy among other things. We have our favorites, but overall their... More

Went to Ocean Sushi in January 2017 upon the recommendation of the Budget Car rental associate at the Hilo Airport. She also suggested Hawaiian Style Cafe (also excellent) and Miyos Japanese. We tried all three (and reviewed on TA). Ocean Sushi is located in a nondescript building in downtown Hilo. Simple et clean. A good variety of sushi, bento boxes... More

Waitress not very friendly, sushi not bad but very expensive for smaller portions. The sauces on the special rolls were good but you can almost not taste it because there's so little on.

Well after many people have stated how great it is... we were highly disappointed. Service was not happy and they totally ride and rip you off with the Ahi sashimi. Look at the pics for the price its shocking. Not impressed

This is a nice corner restaurant in the heart of Hilo downtown with an updated modern interior. The service was good, the menu has a variety for those who are or aren't into sushi. Of course, the sushi was fresh and very good, but also the fried chicken kantsu, short ribs, pork curry were all very good and large portions.... More
