I love the food at this restaurant. The combo meals, sashimi and tempura are excellant. The prices are very reasonable. Must try if in Pearl City, Hawaii. Great service.

My girlfriend and I wanted some warmed sake with sushi rolls. So we choose Gyotaku Restaurant in Pearl City. There was a long waiting list and was received and provided a table after 1 hours wait. The dining is booth style so there is not much atmosphere in the restaurant. The Japanese brush paintings scattered throughout were authentic rice paper... More

After reading many good reviews, I thought I'd try Gyotaku. While I could understand the problems many people reported about parking, I came on a quiet Tuesday evening and had no problems. Inside, the restaurant gives the appearance of restaurants from the 70s or 80s. Compared to most, the interior was very light, almost bright. I had the udon with... More

This was my second visit to Gyotaku and I like it...I like it a lot! The tempura is expertly made and not oily or over battered. The sushi is fresh and they give u a choice of brown or white rice. Expect a short wait...but it is well worth it. I will be back on my next visit to the... More

The food here is very good. Their selection is also extensive with child and elderly portions. They have sushi dishes with traditional Japanese food including ramen and tempura. They also serve excellent steak dishes.

Unassuming atmosphere, diner-like feeling. But wait till you taste the food - excellent, reasonable price. They have kiddie nights when kids eat free with paid adult meal; Senior Menu which is excellent tho not extensive. Nice salads, which are (mixed) greens topped with delicious appetizer-type meats or fish in good sized portions. Tempura, soba noodles and udon noodles are great... More

We went there for a retirement luncheon. The Japanese food wasn't bad in terms of taste. However, the portion was small and the prices high. I guess for folks who find the company and conversation more important wouldn't see anything wrong with this place. It's a clean and decent restaurant for a gathering. I can't see myself yapping away and... More
