This is a very good restaurant with a wide variety of traditional Japanese dishes. The sashimi is especially one of the best meals in the house and the food is always fresh and well prepared. The prices are reasonable, probably near the higher end compared to others in Honiara but still very affordable and good value for money. The service... More

Very tasty and authentic Japanese food. This hotel in Honiara is owned by the Japanese, so it's the best spot to eat real Japanese Food. The staff are quite young and don't really seem to know what they are doing, but you do get what you order and the food comes quite quickly.

The restaurant is not spacious and noisy, but the food is good and price is reasonable, Strongly recommend Shabu Shabu, sashimi and buffet on every Saturday evening. Good value!

My four diving buddies and I ate here twice during our short 6-day visit. First meal was excellent and the second was to their "sashimi" smorgasbord. This proved to be a big choice of Japanese meals across a very wide range. Our doctor had warned us away from raw fish during our visit to the Solomon Islands; but, the food... More

Located in the Solomon Mendana Kitano Hotel, the restaurant is a cool, clean, comfortable oasis in the CBD. Bento boxes are delicious and good value. Sushimi is great.Tempura is also recommended. Staff are courteius and friendly.

I had high expectations based on the reviews. This is a safe bet in terms of fresh food and cleanliness and I would not discount it for visitors to Honiara. Having said that the food was very, very average and service was very slow. The place is very busy. This is likely because it is one of the few places... More

I dined at Hakubai restaurant during a recent business trip to Honiara. The menu offers good choice from fish and meat dishes through to vegetarian options. The food is well prepared and had plenty of flavour and taste.

Once you know the menu, good value may be obtained. The service was fine, sit outside if it isn't raining, and try the Saturday night buffet

For the best sashimi in town, this is definitely the place to go to. My husband and I eat at this restaurant frequently and have never been disappointed.
