Like most of the reviews about this place my biggest complaint is the slow service.

The restaurant had a large capacity, but it didn't seem like the kitchen and wait staff could keep up with the demand. We arrived well before closing, but we didn't get our food until almost 9. They were beginning to close up around us - cleaning tables, putting up chairs - as we were still waiting.

The sushi was really good. Different then we are used to, but still really good. It was a little pricier than I would normally spend on sushi, but most things on the Island are. I don't think we ever spent under 50$ for a meal.

The food is fresh and tasty, but they need to work on their service.

Service was mildly slow but the sushi rolls were worth the wait. Scallop sushi with cheese was excellent the poke roll was divine and noodles were above average. Cost us $50 for 4 people; ordered 7 rolls and one bowl of noodles.

This is the best sushi in Hilo, however the service can be quite terrible and slow. Never get takeout, it took hours. Really delicious and reasonably priced rolls though. Highly recommend the spicy tempura roll, best sushi roll I've ever had!

Hostess was not friendly but the Kalbi Ribs were delicious. The prices were very affordable and our food was out in a reasonable amount of time. The miso soup was the best I have ever had and I have tried many different places. The tempura was great on the batter but the sauce had no flavor.
