Found this place during a trip to Oahu back in 2013. It is located across from Duke's statue. If you are looking for a casual, inexpensive meal while watching a beautiful sunset, I suggest ordering a few rolls and parking a towel right on the beach. Sushi is fresh and the service is friendly. We just went there again a... More

Remember we are in Waikiki the prices are a little higher than average but the rolls are solid and fresh. If you time it right (around 7pm) no wait.

Went here to get take away lunch. The food is expensive. So we resorted to getting just the edamame beans and look for other options. The beans were dry and disappointing. Took a menu with us but decided it was expensive for what you get.

Stumbled across this place and decided just to walk in as it was busy and looked nice. Service was great, food was beautiful and fresh. Reasonably priced. Would defiantly go again!

It might be a one time coincidence but it took extremely long time to get seated and served. The menu is colorful and things look pretty but the taste was really disappointing. Prices are also high for a place with this standard. Unfortunately we don't feel we got value for the money at all.

It's a boring restaurant that you need to wait for 45 min to get your order! Waiters are so cold and the sushi 5 out of 10.

I am an avid sushi conisour and have eaten it all over the US and Japan. This is in my top 5 for freshness and taste. Small restaurant with only 7 tables and an 8 seat sushi bar. Waited 10 minutes at 830 on a Saturday night. Staff was attentive. Price was high but it is Hawaii and we were... More

I stayed in Waikiki for 4 and ate here on the first night. The service was attentive and very good despite being busy and crowded with the staff fully "stretched" dealing with everyone. It is a small restaurant so it is easy to feel "packed" a little but the friendliness is instantly apparent. I ordered some poke to start which... More

We decided to dine here to end our Hawaii holiday. This restaurant is very busy most days due to it being right on the main street. Good quality fish & other seafood used in the preparation of the sushi and sashimi. The platter was also presented beautifully and served on a wooden bridge. Just like a piece of art.
