This restaurant is in a shopping center off and away from most restaurants. The restaurant’s interior was dated and the service was slow. We questioned the sushi prices, which were exorbitant, so we passed on those. The food we ordered as prepared OK, but was overpriced and service/ kitchen was slow. Tables also seemed too close indoors during COVID times.

$25 for 2 pieces of nigiri each minimum... which tasted super fishy and stale. Same for the ahi poke.. the fish was grey, and not from the marinade. I don't mind paying high prices, IF I get decent quality food for it. This was ridiculously overpriced for bs food. Wish we didn't come here.. very disappointing. Both husband and I had stomach issues afterwards. 0/10. Waste of valuable time and money.

If you're in Hilo and in search for Japanese food, this place is a must. Great food at reasonable prices. I love their combination teishoku. I also like their sushi and desserts, such as their Haupia pie and their Blueberry Cream Cheese pie.

Salmon was overcooked and over priced. Sushi was also overpriced and although it was fresh, slices of fish were very thin. Waiter didn't tell us about the specials. We overheard another waiter telling others about the specials.

Love coming here for authentic Japananese food. Kids love their chicken Katsura. I like their tempura udon and chicken tofu. They have great sushi options and family service.
