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

We love eating at Kikuya in Kaneohe. There aren't a lot of Japanese restaurants in Kaneohe, but Kikuya is very good. The food is reasonably priced, served hot, and tastes very authentic. The tempura is light and crispy - an order gives you a variety with shrimp, sweet potato, green bean, carrot, and pumpkin. It's served with miso soup, hot... More

Standard Japanese menu, but everything is always good and tasty. We usually eat here every 6-8 weeks. Prices went up from the 1st of the year, but it's still worth it. I had the Kikuya special, which is like a sampler of their most popular dishes and it was excellent. The nabemono/seafood and chicken soup with veg. was especially tasty.... More

This restaurant has been a favorite over the years. Each time we go to Oahu, we have to have dinner at Kikuya. You need to go early because parking is not great. They are just open for dinner. Having been to Japan, it reminds me of some of the small Ma and Pa casual dining places I found in Tokyo.... More
