Fantastic Food with Great Service

The food was great. Tempura was the best we've ever had. The menu has a great variety to choose from including meats, poultry and seafood. This is the authentic Japanese food. A nice family owned and operated restaurant.

It's a really tiny restaurant but the food is consistently delicious and of great quality. The Tempura is one of the best I ever had. Love their Teishoku selections because many of them offer sashimi as a choice. The parking lot is limited but there is usually parking on the street. Not always the fastest service, but worth waiting for!... More

In Hawaii to find an affordable and delicious restaurant is not a easy task. We made it based on google maps and we were so happy that we did. The restaurant is in a odd location but the food is awesome! Services was slightly slow because there was only one waitress however, she was efficient to handle everything. We enjoyed... More

This little gem is hidden on a busy street with a small parking area. The staff is friendly. Lunch has only 1 waitress and it is pretty busy but she handles herself quite well. I was very impressed by the portions and quality of the food. I ordered the chicken katsu and shrimp tempura combo. Was onolicious!!! My friend ordered... More

My favorite Japanese Restaurant. Food is always consistent. Service just okay, always very busy there especially for dinner. Their tempura shrimp is lite and crispy, never disappointed.

I love everything on their menu...pork tofu, teri-ahi, sukiyaki and of course their tempura! Great quality food at an affordable price. Parking can get tight, but there is also street parking available. Staff is always friendly and quick to check up on your throughout your meal. Just one recommendation.....you may want to order a side of their yummy potato salad... More
