We chose Bushido over the Library (Grand Hyatt) and another one basically because it was in the middle price-wise. We've had plenty of sushi all over the mainland and this was totally different. The way they prepared it, the fresh taste, the presentation, it was all exceptional. The large seaweed salad was plenty for the two of us, definitely get it and share. My only gripe is that they charge for extra ginger. I've never paid for extra ginger, and only one of our four rolls came with ginger. Other than that, I would (and may) eat there again.

Excellent spot that caters to local in Lihue for great value. $40 for 2 dinners, sushi roll, an appetizer and sodas.It's a 1970-80s style diner, clean but basic. Very casual. Parking lot is always full with locals. If you're looking for ambience, that go somewhere else.Dinner portions are huge and prepared fresh. We had Fried fresh whole Aji dinner, Saimin, ahi Natto roll and fried ika. Everything was tasty.Would definitely come back.

This is an interesting concept, itâs a fast food sushi concept.On the night we visited they were understaffed and someone made the decision to only half fill the restaurant and make customers take a number and wait outside in the cold rain. Obviously no rocket scientists running this place - customer service is second to ignorance.The food is served quickly on a sushi train and ordered on an iPad. It prepared so it serves quick. They were waiting for the 1/2 tables they did serve to clear while people waited outside in the cold rain. Not a bright bunch from where we were seated in the rain.My wife and I choose to eat at the horizontal counter so we were seated fifteen minutes earlier than the couple that arrived before us. Half the restaurant was empty, why not seat them sooner at a Vertu Le table? We were able to see as we waited that much of the food is Prepackaged (think the McDonaldâs of Sushi) and cooked to order.The food was fine, the service poor.To make this concept even more ridiculous, you place your order on an iPad, it records your order by table and the sushi train delivers it to your table. Seems digitally savvy. Not quite! When you checkout someone has to count the different colored bowls at your place to determine the amount due. Backwards - no?I expected a far better customer experience from this recommended Japanese sushi concept. If you like average food served poorly, this is your place to eat.

Once again this trip, we ate at Toro Tei more than once. While the menu doesn't have as many items as some others, the consistency in terms of both preparation and plating makes it our favorite. It is consistently fresh, correctly sliced and prepped to maximize both flavor and texture, always attractive plating. It's a little bit more expensive than some other places, but not bad for being a hotel based restaurant. We often opt for sashimi given the high grade of fish and consistent just-caught freshness. Add most pleasant staff and sushi chef, and one has a great dining experience.

We stopped for drinks and the server convinced me to try the passion fruit mai tai. Worth it! Our server was friendly and attentive, the drinks reasonably priced. We had a beautiful ocean view. Would definitely recommend.

Pros: very nice servers, great covered deck with distant ocean view.Cons: average food. (Skip crying tiger. Overpriced and not interesting. Noodle dishes are better but a bit bland.) generally pricey for what you get. Maybe sushi is better than Thai and Chinese dishes?
