    Had a fantastic time at Nuka while visiting with my wife. We loved it so much, we went back for a second evening! Definitely get there early to get in line, it’s worth it. Also, be sure to order something from the specials menu first! The ceviche on Monday, for example, was the best I’ve ever had - texture, flavor, presentation was all on point. P.S. Save room for homemade ice cream, it’s also the best we’ve ever had. The miso vanilla and black sesame flavors were absolutely delicious.

    So I asked around with locals and this name kept coming up. Worth the drive and totally worth every cent! Sit at the counter and watch how fast the chefs are, fastest I've seen in all of the sushi places I've been too. Sushi is fresh and delicious. No reservations taken and this place is busy, seemingly to close.

    There is a reason a line forms as soon as it’s open! We got here at 4:35, and luckily got the 2nd to last open table before the line started forming. All the fish is fresh, and tastes super clean. The food came out hot and flavorful as well, and the overall service and experience is wonderful too! We got the truffle edamame, chicken karaage, hurricane fries, sashimi platter, and Hawaiian Superman - all of which id recommend. Definitely come early when they open and give it a try!

    We arrived here with 45 minutes before closing time for a weekday lunch. We ordered 3 rolls (Nuka, Peahi and a hosomaki of avocado). Nuka was unique and great with its ponzu sauce. The other two were good. Atmosphere: The restaurant is situated in between the post office and a shopping plaza as if in the middle of parking lots. The decoration felt Japanese-y and low-key. Food: Low value for money. Service was quick and friendly.

    For me it’s the #1 place to eat on the island. It opens at 1630 and people are queueing from 1600 to get the first sitting. Unsurprising. The food quality is superb - if you’ve been to good sushi places in Japan, you’ll know just how good this place is. Baked Eggplant is divine, as is the Godzilla roll, Sashimi plate and I can’t recommended enough the Hurricane Fries and I’m not a fan of fries! As for deserts - I loved the home made ice cream made with black sesame seeds. The service is wonderful and the prices are fine for the quality and service. Be patient if you have to queue. It’s totally worth it.
