Sushi Yuzu - Ko'olina Ratings and Reviews
I had a reservation at 5pm and received a phone call at 4:30pm saying that the ENTIRE restaurant will be closed because the chef didn't show up!?! What is that!?! It was MOTHER's DAY and the sushi chef didn't show up?!? What kind of a business are they running? We then had to scramble to get another dinner reservation to enjoy Mother's Day but every restaurant was booked for the next 3 HOURS!! Thank you for making our Mother's Day memorable...
The food was fresh, the server was kind. But, it took a very long time for the kitchen to get the food out. We had ordered when the restaurant was empty. My order of homemade tofu, had not come out with the rest of the order; when asked where it was they had just run out. Communication needs improvement.
We went there for an early dinner when they had their happy hour which is a good deal. It wasn't crowded when we arrived, but it soon filled up. The sushi was great. The only disappointment was that they didn't have an item featured on the menu from the beginning of the happy hour.
I was very happy to see quick service from hostess, servers, and cooks
I offered a Saki to sushi chefs and i was told no.... I have been to many high caliber Sushi restaurants and have never been told no to a shot of Sake
Other than that IT WAS GREAT FOOD
Went while on as stay cation. order sushi and paid 39.00 for the omiyakase. The sushi rice was taste less, and we all know how the flavor of the rice makes the dish. I ordered the tempura udon and the tempura tasted like it was refried in oil to make it hot. Tempura was oily. Order the green tea cheesecake early if you want it. We did and it arrived ROCK hard. The ice cream was softer than the cheese cake OMG! Needed a knife to cut it. Mentioned it to our waitress so that she can inform the kitchen staff to temper the cake and she looked as us like we were from Mars. She probably did not know the definition of temper. Oh well.
We dined here over the Christmas holidays for my daughter's 8th birthday. Each item we ordered was delicious! The options for the kids was the perfect amount - karaage, fries (of course). My older daughter chose to order udon and loved it. My husband had the omakase and stated that each fish was fresh and local. I ordered the seafood & vegetable tempura. The tempura was lightly breaded and lightly fried. We did have to order rice separately and only white rice was available. We didn't have dessert but it was available! (Note: there is an ice cream shop across the street.) I would definitely come here again!
I'm really torn in writing this review. On the one hand, our food was delicious. The sushi, tempura, miso soup, etc. were all delicious! And our service was at times attentive, but other times we watched the clock tick by as we waited to ask for refills on water or to order more nigiri. Also, the ambiance is very much strip mall outdoor dining--no Ko Olina frills in that department! But overall it was a solid meal and one we would repeat on future visits to the area.
Our waitress was wonderful, the service was great. We booked on opentable and they called us to let us know menu items that they had run out of, to ensure we were not in for any surprise. We ordered the spicy tuna roll, avocado roll, and an ahi roll. They were all delicious. We were surprised the restaurant was not busier.
This restaurant had excellent food. It was a little warm and wished they would have closed the doors and turned on the air-conditioner. All in all I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. My sister is a vegetarian and she would love the vegetables in the tempura. She will be here in a month and I will for sure make reservations as soon as she gets here and enjoy this wonderful place again.
We had read good reviews regarding the restaurant. Unfortunately, on the night we were there it was a busy night for the staff. This resulted in relatively long delays. Despite a promising gluten free menu there were issues with their some of their gluten free dishes containing artificial crab meat (containing gluten).
