My boyfriend reserved us seats for a date night here and told me it was one of the top sushi places in Hawaii for an omakase experience. We were excited to try it as we have had plenty of omakase courses back in NYC. The restaurant was diligent in confirming our reservation and informed us that we would not be able to sit at the bar and would have to sit at a table. We were fine with that considering my boyfriend was not able to choose a seating option when reserving. Both the interior and the exterior of the restaurant was simple and a bit lackluster, but it didn't bother us too much as we were here mainly for the food. We started off with a peach sake, which was a bit too sweet for my liking and confirmed with the waiter that we would be having the omakase course for the evening. The course consisted of 22 pieces, starting with two appetizers and ending with one hand roll. Overall, the fish was fresh however almost all the pieces contained some sort of sauce which took away from the taste of the fish itself. We both understood that certain sauces can compliment the fish pieces, but it is unnecessary to put a sauce on almost all the pieces. We only enjoyed the pieces that were served without a sauce, and had a hard time downing the rest of the pieces. Our experience here did not turn out how we expected it to. The staff and service was fine, but the taste of the nigiri pieces dropped the rating down to three stars. TL;DR: Omakase experience ruined by the sauces on a majority of the nigiri pieces.
Probably one of the best sushi restaurants on the entire Island of Hawaii. Reservations are a must and it's in Honolulu so you definitely will need to Uber or drive. Usually it's served in omikaze format but the meticulous presentation of dishes are incredible. It's definitely a pricy spot but here you get what you pay for so it's justified. The outside isn't the most fashionable but if you can get past that the food is incredible
Just amazing. We went with the chefs choice. It was so expensive but so worth it. Hands down the best sushi I have ever had.
