The interior is very simple and unadorned but the prices of the food are about the same as you’d pay in a US mainland Japanese restaurant. The fish was extremely fresh and I loved my chef sashimi sampler! The rolls we had were excellent and service was prompt and cordial. If you are along the waterfront, this restaurant lacks a...

Excellent Sushi, very friendly service, pricing okay. Little hard to find tucked back in the mall area in Kona on Alii drive. Started out dinner with Miso Butterfish and Seaweed salad. Then had for main course a Spicy Mongoose Roll and Hawaiian Volcano Roll. I had an excellent meal and give it a big thumbs up.

We had a great meal at Sushi Shiono today. When we arrived, the restaurant was busy. We were seated at the lone empty table without a wait. The servers were helpful. They did the little things like keeping water glasses topped up. I really appreciate good but not overwhelming service. I also really enjoyed the food. The sushi was great.... More

Located in the Ali'i Sunset Plaza, this medium size restaurant is steps away from the waterfront but is not perched on the water like some of the bars and restaurants nearby. Lower rent means lower meal prices, however and the atmosphere inside and in the outside seating is fine for this shopping-eating area. Sushi options are varied and the quality... More

We arrived near the end of one evening without a reservation and found even at the late hour that the place was full and turning people away. As we wanted only a light meal we opted to wait for a seat at the sushi bar and it was well worth the wait. Rather than order plates of individual sushi we... More

We were recommended by a bartender at another restaurant. We stopped by to check it out since we've been wanting sushi for a while. We waited for the restaurant to be opened and we got seated immediately. There was no trouble getting spot with no reservation. We ordered chef special and 2 special rolls. Chef special was incredible. Can't remember... More

There is no trip to Hawaii without at least one visit to Shiono. The fish quality is superb and the rice just perfect. Paired with a wonderful environment and you have the perfect dinner. Make sure you sit at the bar if you like nigiri sushi. Well worth it!

Hilarious that Open Table came up when I looked this up on Trip Advisor. We had the ultimate fail. Made a reservation for two for a special occasion and when we arrived a few minutes early we were told we could sit at the bar, or wait a long time for "a table." That if we wanted a table we...

We had a very nice dinner at Sushi Shiono. We shared Edamame, Mozuku, and Sunomono for appetizers. We also shared three rolls for our entree: Yellowtail tuna roll, Ahi tuna roll, and the Hawaiian roll. The sushi was fresh and delicious. Service was good. The only complaint is that the restaurant was very noisy (but we found all restaurants in... More

At some places the fish served is not so fresh but here the nigiri melts in your mouth. We had a couple of rolls and 4 pieces of nigiri and we were satisfied. If you are interested in world travel visit our not for profit blog havecarryonwilltravel.com. The waitress was 'efficient', got the job done but not very chatty. With... More
