Delicious, fast and convenient location

Hadn't been back in a long time but I was in the area so tried it again. Very delicious particularly the fried scallops that I had. Convenient location in Waikele, friendly and fast service. Great Japanese food. Definitely will be going back.

This is a place that has absolutely horrible service. It took them 45 minutes to get us a very simple and easy meal. It was honestly pathetic. The food was pretty good, but tasted worse because it took so long. The sushi bar was very good and very fast. The people working the sushi bar were amazing and very talented.... More

Took our daughter our for her birthday with a few others. Service was prompt, food was good quality and tasty. Amongst other things, we opted for the big boat in the middle of the table. Fantastic and almost too much to eat. We'll be coming back again...

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant on the island of Oahu. Reasonable prices with excellent quality Japanese food. I highly recommend this restaurant. My favorite is the sizzling steak and lobster. The shrimp tempura melts in your mouth and if you have a large party I suggest ordering the boat.

This is my family's favorite place to come. Been on island for 4 years and still the best place to come, relax, and eat a delicious meal! My wife and son share the ribeye, and I order nabeyaki soba. Happy every time!

It's a Sunday afternoon, watched the football games, did my house and yard chores and now I'm bushed to negotiate dinner. I hop into my truck and the girlfriend and I head to Waikele Outlets to have dinner at Restaurant Kunio. This place is always to busy and for good reason. It's simply good! Ample parking, courteous staff and downright... More

Been here years ago for dinner and remembered the crowd so went here for lunch and felt the pace was much better. Loved my Deluxe Chirashi box and was glad I only ordered Amaebi sushi as extra because portions were ample and I left stuffed. The amaebi was so fresh n sweet. Too bad they didn't have uni on that...

The decor was lovely; the staff was nice. I had unagi kabayaki (teriyaki eel with rice on the side). The meal came with miso soup, salad, and nicely presented appetizers. The eel was average good. The salad dressing was sweet yet tart which made the crispy salad even tastier. Because of the crowding, I was seated at the sushi bar.... More

There aren't many Japanese restaurant on the westside of the island and this is one of the better ones. It's comparable to Kuni's in Waipahu but I would rate it a little higher because of the restaurant itself. Kuni's has that run down feel to it and Kunio has more of a cleaner feel to it. The food is good... More
