The staff was excellent and the food very tasty. The pricing was a little high but the quality was good.

I love this place the sushi its made to order and high quality. I got the miso salmon and it was fabulous. I highly recommend getting reservations even for a weekday. Only complaint is that the portions are quite small for entrees but this is pretty typical for a Japanese place. Good for a light meal

We stayed in Kailua during our stay and discovered this little place on our second night. It's not on the main roads in Kailua, but it's not far off. The food was delicious, incredibly fresh. The wine and cocktail list was perfect and they had a nice little patio area that was perfect for enjoying a light breeze. Staff was... More

Definitely enjoyed my plate! Great meal of fresh fish! I did get my tea but it wasn't refilled ever. The sushi was really great!

I usually get the firecracker shrimp and Lanikai roll. I just tried the white dynamite roll (not always available) for the first time last night and I'm hooked. It a small restaurant with very little seating, so I highly recommend calling ahead to make a reservation.

I have been to Tokoname in Kailua many times with my buddy to enjoin good Sushi and good Sake, but I would not go with my sweetheart for a romantic evening. Though the waitresses are friendly, the problem is the Sushi Chef. He makes good food, but he has the charm of a chain saw, to say it mildly. Maybe... More

We have visited Tokoname in Kailua many times. The atmosphere here is far superior to their Manoa location, and the service generally is as well. I had the Spicy Tuna roll, while my wife opted for the Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura. We also shared some ahi sushi. The sushi was, as usual, outstanding, as was the Tempura & my Spicy... More

A friendly greeting accompanied with a steamy moist towel. Attentive service, beverage refills and check-backs. Food cooked, seasoned and presented with great care. A must try, must return when in Kailua.

We have eaten here several time, and love it! The food is "always" fresh and prepared nicely, and the taste is delicious. The wait staff is very friendly and pay just enough attention to your needs without over doing it. We drive across the island just to go here, that's how much we like it, and I'm sure you will...

This is a small quaint restaurant that we tried through Groupon. We enjoyed the food at Tokoname, I think the unagi was our favorite. I dont know if we'd be back. The food is pretty expensive with very small portions and although it was good there wasnt anything I found exceptional. But, maybe we need to try some different things... More
