This is a tiny, hole-in-the-wall gem, but also the best Japanese I've even eaten at. Amazing service, great menu, delicious food, so fresh and yummy. It is right off the beach walk strip, and very affordable. A must.

We enjoyed lunch here and both the service and food was excellent. It is a very small, understated and low key cafe, but do not that let prevent you from dining here. there are only about 4 tables inside and 2 more outside. Its a fairly straightforward menu of sushi and related items, plus udon soups. One of my kids... More

They serve drinks(no booze) and sushi. 1 or 2 tables. Wasn't too clean the night we went. Geared towards very young people who desire internet access. Pass On By...

We go to this little place every time we are in Hawaii. It is a small, owner operated establishment with authentic sushi and other Japanese dishes. We love it!

Small sushi restaurant across from the Abc store on beachwalk. Sushi was amazing. They do not serve alcohol but we were told we could byob. So we went across the street to the abc and picked up a botte of wine to go with our dinner.

The place has it's own charm, you will see what I mean when I get there. I had Udon with shirmp tempura and the shrimp tempura sushi roll - absoulutely amazing. I was so happy to find a great hole-in-the-wall in the middle of Waikiki. The pricing is reasonable and the service staff are very friendly and accomodating.

My husband was after a sushi train and this came up in his research but it wasn't one. However it was better! Very small but cutely furnished. Ideal for us with two young kids who could do damage or make a scene without much warning. We were really happy with the food too. They serve tuna as part of their... More

We visited theis place several years ago and it was great. Then on our last trip 2 years ago it was closed and seemingly out of business. We found it re-opened this trip and enjoyed our meal.
