The owner/sushi chef is very talented and everything ordered had the best blend of flavored. I have travelled across Japan many times and left here believing this was the best I have ever had.

Rolls were pretty good, but not the best we had on the island. And the prices do not match up with the quality. Recommend Sushi Rock in Hawa more than Monstera. Island has too many good sushi places to settle for the average ones.
