Sushi in Kauai

Any recommendations for good sushi? We are staying a week in the north shore and a week in the south shore. Thanks!

Buchon's and H. Dolphin for sure. The guys at Dolphin used to be at Sushi Blues which is now Buchon's. Have them make you something different. They are very innovative and creative.

We love Kintaro's! We drive from Poipu.

We want to try the sushi lounge at Hanalei Dolphin but have not made it up there yet.

Call me nuts but for a cheap Sushi meal in Koloa (near Poipu) go to the large grocery store. They make it fresh several times a day and I loved it. If they are there they may custom-make for you, otherwise you get what they put in the case.

Martik:

Why don't you try it when you stay on the North Shore every June?

<<Why don't you try it when you stay on the North Shore every June?>>

We get lazy and decide not yo drive back to Hanalei from Haena. We only had it scheduled for last June (was not recommended to us in 2010) and we were at the end of a 2 week trip. We ended up BBQing one night and and just ate leftovers on another night. We always save one dinner for Mediterranean Gourmet. Hanalei Colony Resort is our total veg location. We plan on staying there at the beginning of our trip this year so hopefully, we will not be as lazy! :) Besides, we have an absolutely fabulous sushi restaurant in our home town.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I don't eat out often, but when my friend from Tokyo was visiting, a group of us went to "Sushi Bushido" in Kapa'a - it is excellent and very popular! She liked it very much, which I think says a lot about the quality! lol

It is located in the "Dragon Building".

Malama Pono,
