The family went here twice. Lunch and dinner. The meat that we had was really nice (great flavour and loved the side dishes) but the seafood in the udon wasnt fresh. Anyway, we thought it was okay (amounted to $90 which is quite expensive). We went back for dinner and got the massive seafood stew thing (which wasn't fresh AT... More

Their raw beef is some of the best I've had in the world and the noodles was delicious too. Seafood was a little dry. They topped up our sweet potato appetiser but include the service fee in the he bill. The service was great but not exceptional.

For 4 years, we have eaten here 1-2 times per visit to Honolulu. It has moved across the street while the International Market is under reconstruction. The restaurant is on the side street around the corner from Subway. The food and service were as good as we remembered. We shared a stone pot loaded with fresh vegetables, meat, rice and... More

Stopped in here for lunch today and had a little trouble with the menu so the waitress came to help us and explained the food for us. Which was great. We had a wonderful lunch with meats and an array of different side dishes all for a great price. Great place to eat.

I stopped in here today by accident. We were planning to go to another restaurant down the street, that is very highly rated on trip advisor, however the line to get in was coming out the front door. So, instead we walked down the street and stumbled across Mikawon and I am so glad we did! It's just a tiny... More

This is seriously great food. A lot of reviews have said that this restaurant seemed dingy, but we thought it was thoroughly loved. This is sort of a hole in the wall place, but totally worth it. The food is top notch. We couldn't have been happier with our meal. The place with completely packed the entire time we were... More

We had been here before since this was our 7th time at Waikiki. It is a hole in the wall near one of the entrances to the International Market Place from the Kuhio Avenue side. Written on the walls are sayings and thanks from many of the visitors- local and international. The decor and atmosphere is not the greatest but... More
