Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really tried very hard to find this place and we were extremely happy when we found it. Although we had to wait for about 20 minutes we were seated right at the counter, where we could see the sushi chefs putting together our lunch....Menu is in english and Korean and the daily dishes are displayed in photos. We decided to have the lunch menu and one daily dish of a deep sea fish with an amazing sauce (we were told by a customer who was seating next to us that the fish was a rare find and we should have it so we did). The sushi was amazing, fresh and with a great selection. And the service was very efficient although the place was full. Highly recommended. The restaurant is located on the side road of Solaria Stage, opposite the bridge that connects Solaria Stage to Solaria Plaza, next to a Family Mart.More

Went there with my kid. Arrived a bit before opening (weekday) and good to be first person in line. Staffs very friendly and food very fresh. Menu available in English and also lots of picture of different dishes inside the shop.

Had an enjoyable dinner after a short wait. Besides sushi, they have various specials which are shown with photos pasted all over the place. Always crowded with locals and tourists.

This is one restaurant we enjoyed the most during our trip to Fukuoka. The various sushi, sashimi rice, crab korokke and tempura prawn were simply yummy! Business was brisk and there was a short queue although we arrived quite near to the restaurant's closing time...for lunch. Price was reasonable too. Would have returned for more meals if we had discovered this place earlier on !More

Not too sure how I left this review out... my first visit was 25 years ago. This has been a yearly ritual with my family and friends. Sometimes we would even have it for lunch and for dinner. I have been a seriously loyal diner....Queue 30 mins before opening if you want to be guaranteed a seat! We love seating around the sushi counter. The atmosphere is fantastic around here. The senior chefs were apprentice chefs when we first visited 25 years back. Is great to return to see familiar faces each time. We enjoyed sashimi ( all kinds) , sushi ( all kinds) and seasonal produce. Beware if you are having whole sashimi, because they are so fresh they could be still twitching. On our recent trip, we had squid, freshly sliced with moving tentacles! That made us feel really terrible, I decided to cover the squid head with the shiso leaf! Staff noticed that and offered to grill the head or Fry in tempura batter. Beers are always served icy cold, sake is available on both chill and hot. Sets come with a fresh fish broth. They are simply delicious. Can't tell you what's best because they are all great! You will be feasting with a 5000JPY budget. My husband and I are real foodies and we spent a total of 16000JPY inclusive of 2 sakes and 2 beers. I am certainly looking forward to my next visit. PS: Many sushi items not captured in photos. ( simply distracted)More

Heard friends tried this restaurant before but we didn’t planned to come here this trip. Until we were tired from shopping nearby and searched online to see what sushi place nearby .. and this place was literally around the corner. Convenient located in Tenjin. When...we arrived, there was a queue already but luckily we only waited 15 mins to get bar seats. We ordered some sushi and fried oysters - the food was very fresh hence tasted well. However the food came too quickly - we literally gulped it down in around 20mins. Guess they want the customers to leave ASAP as there was a queue still outside. The restaurant is not very big. The tables in side were quite packed together- abit squashed up and not very comfortable to sit. The place mainly Chinese and Korean tourists during the short time we were there. A can try restaurant only but there are better ones around. Reasonable price though.More

As tourist, we didn’t have much luxury to travel out of convenient locations for the ‘best’ food. Overall, Hyotan offered a good-enough sushi experience in a popular location, with friendly service, reasonable price, adequate varieties & acceptable quality. We arrived around 6.30pm & queued for...about 40 min on a weekday. We had a few sushi meal in Fukuoka & haven’t found one that is as good as those we had in Tokyo yet, with price taken into consideration. Hyotan was not the best or the cheapest, but we truly enjoy our sushi dinner here!More

This place is well located and it serves fresh, good sushi. But honestly: there are better places in Fukuoka. For example at Fish market.

Decided to try this place because it had great reviews. The Hamachi Kama was excellent and grilled to perfection. The sushi being just ok, is a little highly priced. Not worth the wait nor is it a place I will look forward to come back...to.More

First restaurant after landing in Fukuoka next door to our hotel, well it did not disappoint. We had to queue but went pretty quick since there are two rooms over two floors. Not cheap but compared to what we would have been served in London...for the same price it was deffo yummy and value for money.More

I lived in Japan over 4 years and I'm a sushi lover and culinary critic. I came across Hyotan Sushi rave review and I had to try it. First of all, it's a hole in the mall where customers seat shoulder to shoulder. If you...wish to talk to the waitress, you need to turn your body halfway or turn your neck 90 degree and stare at her in pain. The sushi is just average. Honestly, I've eaten much better place all throughout Japan for much better price. I thought the size of sushi was okay, but it wasn't as fresh as I expected. It didn't melt in my mouth. The taste was halfway stale or halfway fresh. I wasn't impressed with their menu selection either. It lacked few key dishes with shrimp, rolls, and other key dishes that I would find in other reputable sushi joints. The rice was not so good...something was missing...or too much MSG? Tourists don't know any better, and few older locals eat for the convenience since it is close to the metro. This is just an over-priced sushi joint for sushi suckers. Sorry, but I won't go back since I know many other sushi joints that's so much better.More

I don't think they allow any reservation. You have to wait in line to get a seat. Go early before the restaurant opens to get in front of the queue line.
