Owner operated sushi bar with creative and traditional sushi meals. Everything on the menu is delicious, yet they are happy to let you "make the roll".

We came around 3:30 and they had an hour wait... this is a grab and go place so don't expect a lot of hoopla. Just give your order and take it to enjoy! Portions are enormous for the price, and several very unique rolls. There...More

Right on Ali’i Drive (ask the locals about Hayashi Sushi, because it’s a little hidden), and it’s actually called Hayashi’s You Make The Roll. It’s perfect after a day at the beach when the whole pack is super hungry. Extremely affordable and the portions are...More

Stopped by around 130pm, the place was so busy we needed to wait for 30 mins for our order. Well worth it. Not much seating, so plan to take it back home or to the beach to enjoy.

As a vegetarian, I ordered Inari, an avocado roll, and a vegetable roll. The pieces were HUGE and the rice was cooked perfectly. The avocado roll melted in my mouth. Tough to find, but there is no better value on the island.

Worth the wait! Fresh and delicious local sushi treasure. Little hard to find but worth all the effort. Huge rolls. Wonderful prices. Make an order, wander the area, go back and pick it up! Yumm! About $7.00 a roll!

Always fresh. Sometimes they run out or get so busy that they close the doors. They could have expanded long ago but chose to keep it just right. One of my favorite places to eat on any of the islands.

You need to find this little sushi place tucked behind Alii Dr. Only 3 people allowed inside, because it is tiny. Before I placed my order, I was told it would be 45 minutes to an hour wait, but that was fine. Went for a...More
