A visitor to the area may feel out of place when stepping through the doors of this restaurant and bar but do not be dissuaded. The owner/manager is exceptionally welcoming with a super sense of humor. When in doubt as to what to order due to the expanse of the menu, throw yourself onto the mercy of the wait staff... More

We drove from North Shore to have a family dinner here. Everything on the menu is great and the service is unbeatable.

Mom had sukiyaki while the rest of us had teishoku. Everything from the miso soup to the green tea was delicious. We've been coming here since I was a little girl. My favorite is the tofu steak, they bring it to you while it is still sizzling. If you are lucky enough to see the owner he may do some... More

I have been coming here since 1991. And in all that time I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the quality is grade A, and they treat you like family. I never get tired of Kuni's. Parking can be a problem on a busy night, because they share the lot with other businesses. The karaoke can get a... More

We had a great, memorable dinner. We each ordered the 1 item option (chicken Katsura, chicken teriyaki, and tempera shrimp/veggies). We really enjoyed our dinners. At one point the owner turned off a all the lights as he carried a birthday cake to a table and got the whole restaurant to sing! There was also a band and karaoke next... More

My family and I have been coming to Hawaii about every year for the past 31 years to visit family. Kuni's is my favorite place to eat anywhere! They have great Japanese family-style food and a very large selection. With your order you'll get all the yummy sides--salted cabbage, salad w/ginger dressing, miso, bean sprouts & a huge pot of...

Delicious food, quick reliable service, good price. The BEST TOFU STEAK arrives sizzling hot with bonito flakes dancing around. The BEST TERIYAKI STEAK for at least the last 35+ years. The BEST NISHIME- not too sweet. Good tsukemono and miso soup. I love their shrimp tempura and the nabeyaki, udon, and domburi's are great as well. They are known for... More
