Maui has some incredible sushi places.

And is it any wonder?

Maui is surrounded by an ocean brimming with fresh fish, and the Japanese culture on the island runs deep. If you’re a sushi fan, you won’t be disappointed with the options on Maui.

Best Sushi On Maui


Isana is a locally-owned sushi spot steps from the ocean in North Kihei.

Isana Sushi

A local fisherman owns this restaurant, so the fish is always fresh – and there is always something unique on offer.

Sushi rolls abound here, from classic California rolls to dazzling chef specials. And you can’t forget about sashimi or nigiri either.

If you’re not a sushi fan, Isana has a separate “kitchen menu” featuring local favorites and other Japanese dishes.

Food aside, Isana has a great vibe. The restaurant is bright and clean, with great views from the window-side seats. Plus, the cocktails are fantastic, and you can’t beat their happy hour.

Miso Phat

Like Isana, Miso Phat is also owned by a local fisherman. Translation? Always fresh fish and a variety of seafood options.

Miso Phat Sushi

Miso Phat is one of the Valley Isle’s most popular sushi restaurants – with two locations in Kahana and Kihei.

Their menu features a head-spinning array of specialty rolls, baked rolls, nigiri, sashimi, and more.

Miso Phat also has a great daily happy hour, with 15 percent off all food, $1 off beer and wine, and $2 off all bottles of sake and wine.

Stop by Miso Phat in the Azeka Center in Kihei.

Koiso Sushi Bar

Koiso Sushi Bar offers one of the most unique sushi experiences on Maui.

But… It’s also one of the most difficult restaurants to get into.

Koiso Sushi Bar only seats 16 people per night, and you need a reservation to get in – so plan at least a month in advance if you want to eat here!

Everyone is seated at 6 pm sharp, and Hiro, the sole sushi chef, spends the next hour and a half preparing the food.

Hiro is a veritable sushi master. Most guests order the omakase—the chef’s choice sushi — but there are a ton of other choices too.

If you can’t score a reservation, try calling Tuesday through Saturday at 5 pm on the dot and ask if there are any cancellations. You might get lucky, and it’s worth a try.

Oao Sushi

Oao Sushi is the newest sushi spot to grace south Maui.

Located in Wailea, Oao Sushi grew from a food truck to a bona fide restaurant. Now it’s one of Maui’s best!

Fresh fish and local ingredients are emphasized here, as well as stunning presentation. You can expect A-plus sushi rolls, sashimi, and nigiri, plus inventive specialty rolls like the hamachi serrano roll.

There’s also a ton more on offer than just sushi. Even if you don’t like seafood, you’ll find something to enjoy here (fried Brussels sprouts and prime ribeye, anyone?).

Oao’s food truck is still going strong in Kihei, but if you want a sit-down experience, head to their Wailea location in the Wailea Gateway Center.

Headed by celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto, Morimoto at the Andaz in Wailea is one of Maui’s most recognized sushi joints.

Morimoto Sushi

Upscale with impeccable ocean views, Morimoto is renowned for its silver service, melt-in-your-mouth sushi, and versatile menu.

Obviously, sushi is the star of the show here. But there are all sorts of Japanese and Asian-inspired eats on the menu, too – from buri bap to Thai coconut kampachi.

Morimoto is very popular, so reservations are recommended.

If you love sushi, Maui is the place to be. We hope to see you here on the Valley Isle soon, supporting our amazing restaurant industry and enjoying all that the island has to offer. A hui hou!
