Fodor's Expert Review Makai Sushi

$ The South Shore Japanese Fodor's Choice
The menu is simple—poke bowls, sashimi, and four types of sushi rolls—but the freshness of the fish and attention to quality preparation set this tiny sushi bar apart from the crowd and make it a welcome addition to the Poipu Beach food scene. Tucked into a corner of Kukuiula Market, it attracts a steady stream of customers who watch owner Matthew Oliver and an assistant transform spicy ahi, blue crab, avocado, cucumber, tobiko into the Hapa Roll or mix raw ahi, ono, salmon, cucumber, avocado, and sweet Maui onion into the Gorilla Bowl. Though there's a stool or two nearby, it's best to get it to-go and head for the beach.
