My husband and I ate here after biking down the volcano. The food was very fresh and very tasty. I ordered butterfish. It was listed as an appetizer, but it came with a big fish fillet, a bowl of rice, and a salad. Butterfish is my reason for coming to Hawaii and this was very good, but be careful because... More

Our family loves sushi, this place had great sushi made by the owner himself Jun (Ben). One of the best home made Unagi sauce I have tasted. We ended up hanging out for almost 2 hours talking with Ben and Joyce (father and daughter). We would surely eat there again.

This place has the hands-down best rainbow roll on the island. The fish is melt-in-your mouth fresh. The portions are generous. All of the options on the menu are tasty. Others may offer more diversity, but for basic sushi and sashimi with good quality fish, you cant go wrong here.

What a great little spot in sleepy Makawao! Fresh sushi,they were getting deliveries while I was there, prepared nicely by a couple who have been doing this for years. All the normal sushi/sashimi, a nice selection of rolls, and a fine selection of special rolls. Even though you're up-country, in what appears to be a converted general store, its still... More

Ben puts out quality sushi made with care and the best fresh premium fish available. The toro is like butter, the mirugai crunchy sweet, spicy tuna rolled to perfection. Looking forward to CA uni again though. Love the convenience of an upcountry sushi bar that outshines the competition in price and quality!!

Excellent sushi! Freshly rolled before you, great taste, large sized rolls. My boyfriend and I were hungry, it tasted great, it was a good deal for your money. Friendly couple that were owners. They had cute things to buy in the restaurant if you wanted and things to look at for sale while you waited. There was a bathroom as... More

After getting back from our spa day up in the hill country, my wife and I decided to explore Makawao. It is a beautiful town, but we got into town when most of the restaurants were closed until dinner. So we walked around and found Makawao sushi and deli. It was very unassuming but we were hungry. My wife got... More

We biked down the volcano and the tour guide raved that this was the best sushi in Maui. We happen to love sushi and decided to stop and have a quick lunch. The service was friendly and fast. The rolls are on the smaller size. Overall it was good food on the go. Would come back if we came back... More

Great sushi in tiny Macawao. The small, unassuming "deli" has some of the best sushi on Maui. Related and casual, it's a family run local shop. A good stop when upcountry.
