The best sushi on the island, hands down.
Time from Hotel: 1 min. drive, 5min walk.
Sushi Sam is our favorite sushi restaurant on the island and one of our favorite restaurants period on Hawaii Island. Sam, a former chef at the famous Kukio Golf and Beach Club, decided to start his inaugural restaurant in 2021. With only a handful of tables plus sushi bar seating, it’s an intimate eating experience. Availability is limited, so reserve ahead of time. However, sometimes you’ll be able to grab an available bar seat if you arrive at opening. Service is friendly and attentive.We highly recommend this get, just steps away from PACIFIC 19 Kona.
