My wife and I enjoyed the sushi rolls very much. Ordered the Island roll, as well as the California roll. You will not be disappointed in any selection you make. I would highly recommend this place! Very small place and you either need to eat...More

This tiny sushi spot has been on our list for years. It is take-away only, with a few tables and chairs outside. It is always busy. Best to go by and place your order, do other errands in town, then pick-up. Generous portions, and a...More

I lived in Kailua Kona for a year back in 2003 and this was one of my favourite spots to grab lunch. The lines were long even back then and for good reason. So visiting the Big Island with my family this year one of...More

We arrived at 10:55 am and were the 12th in line. We placed our order and were told it would be an hour. We strolled along the ocean and did a little shopping. They had it ready on the nose upon our return. Well worth...More

Owner operated sushi bar with creative and traditional sushi meals. Everything on the menu is delicious, yet they are happy to let you "make the roll".

Right on Ali’i Drive (ask the locals about Hayashi Sushi, because it’s a little hidden), and it’s actually called Hayashi’s You Make The Roll. It’s perfect after a day at the beach when the whole pack is super hungry. Extremely affordable and the portions are...More

Stopped by around 130pm, the place was so busy we needed to wait for 30 mins for our order. Well worth it. Not much seating, so plan to take it back home or to the beach to enjoy.

Sneak up the alley. Hidden behind a wall is the place that locals go to for big plates of sushi. Ask people sitting outside if you aren't sure about how to order. This place is tiny, and locals call in orders, so they close up...More

As a vegetarian, I ordered Inari, an avocado roll, and a vegetable roll. The pieces were HUGE and the rice was cooked perfectly. The avocado roll melted in my mouth. Tough to find, but there is no better value on the island.
