Not every U.S. sushi restaurant can boast of having actually originated in Japan. With roots in Osaka, Kozo Sushi in Hawaii sets itself apart as a true original. Since first opening over 40 years ago, the restaurant has grown to feature five locations. Find out three more ways this series of tasty Japanese cuisine hot spots is so special.
3 Standout Elements of Kozo Sushi
1. Great Value
Sushi doesn’t have to be expensive to be great. Kozo offers a diverse selection of top-quality dishes at affordable prices. Bento boxes range from $7.99 to $8.99, for instance, while the Salmon Lovers Nigiri Set, a customer favorite, is just $7.50. With these prices, you don’t have to save sushi exclusively for special occasions.
2. Diverse Offerings
In addition to traditional sushi styles, Kozo is also known for its inventive approach. The Spicy Crunchy Maki, for example, features traditional shrimp tempura with cucumber and avocado, but is given a modern twist with tempura chips sprinkled on top. Meanwhile the Dynamite Maki brings together shrimp tempura and barbecue potato chips—a winning combo.
3. Sushi Alternatives
If you aren’t into raw fish, Kozo Sushi still has something for you. Their diverse bento boxes include cooked seafood and meat options, such as chili chicken. They also offer a variety of noodle dishes like soba and udon. Whether you are visiting with family, friends, or colleagues, the comprehensive menu is sure to have something to suit every taste.
