Attentive service, although the appetizer and meal came at the same time and the iced tea was not good... At all. Both ordered different yoki udon dishes (special and kimchi) and both were done perfectly. Milk pudding was a nice end to the meal.

Don't waste your money. Overpriced and over cooked. Takoyaki was undercooked in the dough and over cooked in the octopus, or at the very least under tenderised. Scallops-returned, over cooked. Seared ahi- returned, over cooked. Prawns-not returned but also not eaten, over cooked. Vegetables-soggy and over cooked. In a magical place like Waikiki, with fresh seafood just out of the... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Jinroku. It is a destination locale - not on the main drag so to speak but worth finding. We walked in and had a huge welcome from all the staff - our server - John - explained the whole menu to us with great patience and wonderful aloha spirit (hard to find these days).... More

Awesome Japanese restaurant. Two blocks from the strip. Reasonably priced. Food tasted great, fresh and generous portions. Prepared out in the open so you can see it being cooked. Presentation is very pleasing. They take pride in their food and it shows. Thank you to John, our server. He is pleasant, articulate and explained the menu items to us. He... More

The staff are trained to be friendly so they are somewhat freindly. One guy stands out named John. He went above and beyond to be kind and helpful. Too bad they all weren't like him. Having very little experience with Japenese cuisine we weren't guided or helped to order unfortunately. We ended up with 3 large dishes that were way... More

Even though the title states street food style. The quality and flavor far surpasses that. I have been dying to try the Okinomoyaki for so long, since I have first saw it on the travel channel then other food blogs and videos. It was everything I thought it would be. Burst of flavor and textures all in one dish. Perfect... More

Service here was decent, though I got the feeling our server was a little new... Our food arrived quickly, and was very tasty. We had two Okonomiyaki and one Negiyaki, as well as takoyaki. It was too bad the vents started dripping on our table halfway through our dinner! Overall, it was nice to have a 'real' teppanyaki dinner, and... More

We will definately be back. Linda was a fantastic host. The food was exceptional, the best teppanyaki we have ever had.

Okonomiyaki was something I have never heard of and when I heard you can eat it I was ready to try it. To me it looks like an omelette pancake of tasty awesomeness. My friends were not fond of it but its delicious. Great teppan and food was made just how i love it. Great atmosphere and definitely a romantic... More

Not on the main strip but so much better than a Benihana. This is a fairly small restaurant and we sat at the grill to enjoy the show although the focus is on the food rather than the showmanship seen at similar restaurants and the food didn't disappoint. Well worry a visit and lots of choice.
