Sushi master Norio Yamamoto is the namesake of this contemporary restaurant in the Fairmont Orchid hotel. Light-colored hardwood floors fill the interior of the restaurant, which has a 14-seat bar and seating along a koi pond. Chef Ogasawara prepares a Chef’s Choice Menu that changes daily, but there are also appetizers like the sashimi set and hot starters like the Hawaiian abalone, served with truffle mash and sea salt. Sushi options include the spider roll with crab and cucumber and the shrimp tempura dragon roll. 

Insider Tip:

After dinner, take a walk to the nearby Holoholakai Beach Park; it’s less than a half-mile away.
