They typically host buffets on weekends so check first. We have never eaten a la carte and enjoy their buffet immensely. They have three primary sections - sushi/sashimi, Japanese warm/cold cuisine and desserts. The sushi selection is impressive and very tasty. They do not present "basic" sushi selections like mainland California rolls, but many from their specialty list. I particularly... More

The restaurant is located in the J.W. Marriott. This was the best tasting, freshest Sushi I have ever had. The Sake flight with three different types of Sake was a great complement to our meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Not sure where Floyd and qanik ate - but that wasn't the experience we had. We had the seafood buffet on a Friday night. Service superb, Sake list extensive, only down was no sushi on the sushi table. I love sushi, my husband not. So he ate lots of steak and other wonderful things from the buffet. I had some... More

Do not eat here! Way over priced for below average food, and bad service. We ordered the buffet and only half of the food was ok to eat. What we did eat was bland. The whole experience was a disappointment.

This restaurant is located in the JW Marriott. A little bit pricy dinner buffet but very delicious Japanese food. We will be back when we stay in KoOlina next time. The service was efficient and the restaurant was very clean. There are some outside seating available which offer a great sunset. I recommend to reserve a table on Opentable. JWマリオット内にあり、お値段は少し高めですが新鮮でおいしい和食を味わうことが出来ます。レストランは清潔で、混んでいるにもかかわらず、オーダーも早く、こまめにお茶を注ぐなどサービスも良かったです。夫婦と子ども一人で、ディナーバイキングを利用して約$150でした。... More
