I'm not kidding. My new favorite Sushi restaurant of all time. The Ahi Tuna melts in your mouth. Talk about fresh fish!!! Great service and a lively atmosphere. A treasured find not to miss.

We have been eating here for years.....every time we visit Maui. Be sure to get the butterfish in a miso sauce...excellent. Always fresh sushi and the bartender we had last night was amazing!!!! She was multitasking like no one we have ever seen.
