Really expensive and whilst some of the food was absolutely delicious (e.g. Cashew crusted chicken main) some of the food left a lot to be desired which was disappointing considering the claims of fine dining and the price. We received the wrong sushi and then the sushi we did receive was pretty average and no better than any I'd had... More

Food: 4/5. Menu offers some common Japanese entrees, some Asian fusion and a few creative entrees. Limited in vegetarian options. The Upcountry Broccoli and Tofu was good and flavorful. The Baked Scallops on Half Shell were very good, and cooked just right. However, you only get two. The Blackened Ahi Roll was also very good, but note that I asked... More

Awesome server! Appetizers, including the Sushi Rolls were great. Seafood with Thai Red Curry sauce was top-notch. Make sure to reserve in advance.

Great food and atmosphere. Our waiter wasn't anything special but the chef made up for him! It's a bit pricey but you are overlooking Ka'anapali Beach.
