When it comes to great taste and epic portions of nigiri, sushi bowls, rolls and more, Sushi Bay most certainly has it down pat.
The Kapolei eatery is beloved by the community and celebrated for its more than 80 items available for both dine in and takeout.
“We try to offer affordable prices, good quality, good customer services,” says owner and president Lance Yamamoto. “Those are the three important things to us.” Since taking ownership of the restaurant in 2013, Yamamoto, who has 19 plus years of experience in the industry, has made it his mission to treat customers with respect, taking care of them through offering quality dishes that won’t break the bank.
The cozy conveyor-belt sushi restaurant pulls out all the stops when it comes to its sushi, piling up fresh selections on top of color-coated plates.
For $5.75 each, enjoy a number of entrees that’ll “roll” you away. There’s Dragon Roll, Rainbow Roll, and No. 1 best-seller Dynamite Roll, featuring shrimp, crab and avocado rolled up and topped with spicy tuna. Also, try Soft Shell Crab that’ll have you clawing for more.
But what most have their eyes on is the Mix Don ($10.50), a gargantuan bowl of spicy tuna, ahi poke, and a slice of ahi and salmon on a bed of sushi rice. Piled high, the sushi bowl can be customized to your taste, according to Yamamoto. Guests can ask for spicy crab or salmon in place of the spicy tuna or ahi poke, or ask for all of one item.
If you feel that you can’t handle a dish of this size, you can always opt for the Mini Mix Don ($5.75), which comes with spicy tuna and ahi poke atop sushi rice.
