My daughter stalked the menus of local sushi restaurants and found Simiaichi's to offer the best variety and specials. She can do my research any time cuz this was fabulously lucious. We sat at the "bar" where we could interact with the chefs as they...More

You can sit right outside in a sort of open-air anteroom, or enter through the doors and sit in the actual anteroom, or open the inner doors and head to the counter where there is no seating. The place has a plucky, rustic, charm to...More

I found Shimaichi’s by accident while staying in the adjacent HIE in Kona. In the week or so when I was there, I tried something different each evening, and every meal was better than the last. Fantastic food, very friendly staff with great service.

You can pay $8 per Cali Roll at almost any other sushi shop in town, or pay $10 for their lunch special (2 rolls + a drink). Dynamite rolls were excellent. Wish we had tried some sashimi and non-fried maki rolls, but what we had...More

The whole place smells like fried fish. They might need a scrub down. Rolls are a little sloppy, and rice is mushy. Fish is fresh. Signature rolls are heavy on sauce. Service is efficient.
