Our group of 13 loved this place! Excellent food, excellent service and entertaining - what more could you ask for! Not one person complained about their food - pretty good for that large of a group. A wide variety of entrees were ordered - steak, chicken, shrimp, lobster, tofu and all were delicious! Even my 10 year old daughter loved... More

Because of the holiday season, visiting mainland friends were not able to get a reservation at their preferred restaurant, so their hotel steered them to Tanaka of Tokyo at Kings Village. Located on the third floor (no elevator that I could see) of this worn out tourist trap in the heart of Waikiki, ToT East was OK, but nothing to... More

We were seated with 6 other people at a large half mood table, since my partner and I are vegan, we opted for a vegetarian dish with tofu, and so they were sure to cook all the veggies first for us with no butter and then proceeded with the meats for everyone else. I will say, they veggies could have... More

We visit this restaurant on every trip to Waikiki. The service is great, and much more authentic than similar restaurants on the mainland.

Being a big fan of tepanaki cooking, (hibachi) this restaurant exceeded my expectations. Sans reservations, two of us arrived at 8:15PM for dinner. Understand that seating for this type restaurant usually requires a minimum of 3 or 4 people. After a few hurried phrases back and forth between the staff,we were seated immediately. This is a relatively small seating area... More

Good food, fresh and nice. Waiters are a bit inexperienced we ordered way too much for four of us and he should of told us that when we were ordering. Will go again, nice clean tepenyaki place. Expensive!!

Our chef was really entertaining and friendly. Unlike some teppanyaki in Australia where they toss food at the diners, there was none of that here, much to our relief. Our server was on the ball and looked after us really well. We had a lobster, steak and scallop combo which was only about USD45, which we thought was amazing value... More

We just loved the entertainment by our lovely Filipino Chef, making volcanoes out of onion rings and creating huge flames lick up to lots of applause, and cheering. Our food was delicious and we thought very good value for money. The staff are pleasant and it was a well run restaurant. It was nice to have a meal without batter... More
