Another great meal

If you like Japanese food and want to eat at a very central Waikiki Japanese restaurant this will be the place to go. Great food and service. They always seem to manage to squeeze me in without a booking. Our meals were excellent and the comments were unanimous in my group. See if you can get a... read more

Came in from the beach (1 block away) and was looked down upon by our female server. "Oh, you are wet. Sit here." Slow service and other diners treated better. Water was empty most of lunch. Food was good and prices were decent. Would look elsewhere due to the service if I return to the area.

We read great reviews about this restaurant so we decided to go. It was a Tuesday night and we didn't think we needed reservations, wrong!! We didn't have to wait long because we ate up at the bar, but all the tables were reserved or taken. It was fun eating up at the bar because we could watch the chefs... More

We had planned to eat here for a while and after finishing a sunset cruise on a Friday night we wandered in without a booking. They were glad to accommodate our party of 5 and had us seated and with a drink in our hand in minutes. The rest of the night had us enjoying an assortment of very well... More

Located just off the strip around some other great Asian restaurants, this one is a must try. Went for lunch but dinner would have been great also.

Lunch specials were a great price for location and experience. Food taste was a bit bland. I had the okonomiyaki - too much ginger for my liking. They have a vegetarian set as well for lunch.

Had a chance to try this place on our last day in Waikiki, Hawaii on July 29, 2015 for lunch. The chef cooks the meal over a teppanyaki grill & quite tasty! Garlic shrimp, garlic chicken and spicy pork are some of the dishes we tried. Prices are reasonable for Waikiki standards. Dinner is more pricy. Highly recommended and we... More

Friendly staff! Excellent food. Be sure to call ahead to make a reservation to sit at the bar to view food preparation. Very entertaining. My husband and I were looking for a unique restaurant, and we ate here twice during our stay! The garlic shrimp fried rice is to die for!

We got to the restaurant and our hostess took us in. We wanted to sit on the teppan grill. But the chef on the grill shooed us away. As in physical gesture shoo. The hostess had to keep apologizing to us. I went to vape at the front entrance outside. Chef signal once again to move back more to the... More
