We went here for sushi for dinner and were more than happy with the quality of the food and the service. We brought our own wine and they were quite OK with that. It was pretty quiet - you come for the food rather than the atmosphere!

It's a little pricy compared to similar restaurants. The food is average. We orders three dishes and they almost forgot the garlic shrimp after enquiring about it. Not a good dish.

We've walked past Hawaiiana many times without noticing it. This feels like a local place. Not a fancy space, just great fresh sushi at competitive prices. We went light for lunch and had the 15-piece bento, a seaweed salad, and a mango smoothie (just frozen mango and some honey). Two beautiful salads went to other tables. Easy to walk by... More

I went to this restaurant last week (October 2014) due to the large number of glowing reviews, and I was honestly quite shocked at how bad the food was. First and foremost, I need to do it justice and say that the sushi is not so bad that it will make you sick. Most people already commented on the dive... More

Love this resto. Bring your own wine. You can get a decent bottle at ABC store across the street. Sushi is awesome and service is great. Definite 5 star. Love these family run hole in the wall type restos.

Decided to give this a try after reading the reviews here and it's very close to our hotel. This place has decent food but the price is not as great as the reviews have made it to be. We found the pricing is comparable to other restaurants. Not less but not more. The food was good. Definitely home cooking type.Garlic... More

We just happened upon this restaurant while walking the street near our condo. It is truly a hole in the wall and easy to miss. There is a small little outside dining area with one table and even smaller inside seating with 5 tables. The food however is great and the price is perfect. We split the Ahi Poke Roll... More

So after eating dinner in Waikiki for more than a week, these places can make your wallet ten times lighter that when you first appeared. Sometimes you want great food at a great price, and that is just what this place provides. It is a really sneaky location but managable to get to by foot. The owner introduced himself with... More

Was taken here for dinner by a friend who used to live on the Island. It is definitely off the beaten path and hidden but it was exactly what we needed. It is right around the corned from all the hustle and bustle but the restaurant itself is very quiet. We were a group of 6 and sat outside. Prior... More

This place is a little hole in the wall. If you aren't looking for it you will miss it, if you are looking for it you will miss it!! It's tucked back off the street and only has about 4 or 5 tables. There are a few outdoor tables as well. We had an order of fried rice, shrimp tempura... More
