Great food consistently

Love this place but you have to eat slow as they are popular and are good at getting you eating and out. Sashimi divine - anything is good. Place smelt a little too fishy this time. Nice environment to enjoy lovely food.

My gosh I forgot how absolutely delicious their sushi is. With about 99% Japan national clientele you know you're in for some good food. The toro maki with shiso is just divine. As is their garlic toro. Yimmmmmmm

I love coming here. Although its been a while went with two friends and planned on just eating one thing and had 10 different sushi dishes. The staff is impeccable and amazing and the food matches the quality of service. DIVINE. To me its the best place on Oahu for Sushi

One of the best meals we had in Honolulu. It is a bit of a hike from the main part of the city where the hotels are, but well worth it. Prices are very in line with what you would expect, but the quality was definitely way above average. Highly recommend.

We visited Imanas with friends from Japan and were not disappointed with quality and quantity of the food. The shabu shabu was fantastic, the meat perfectly sliced and the sesame and pons sauces were very tasty. The sushi was of the highest standard and overall the food was excellent. We did BYO a bottle of champagne which I don't think... More

I had to have shabu shabu, and Imanas has it! They don't have the large amount of options that other shabu shabu places do, but we wanted a place with a variety of foods for our family group. Space was a bit tight, but we were seated right away at 8:30 pm. We started with edamame and miso tofu. The... More

This is the go-to place for Japanese food for my wife and I. They only take phone reservations starting at 4:30PM (I think) and whenever you try calling, the line is always busy. That said, my wife and I have always been lucky that we never had to wait more than 20 minutes for a seat at a table or... More

4th time here and it deserved a review. Food is excellent with a substantial amount given for the price. I was pleasantly surprised on the staff and their knowledge of sake pairing. Not to be a sushi snob, but they did impress me on the quality of their ohtoro nigiri. The only thing that sucks is the parking. You either... More

My favorite was the nabe. Sushi was good too. Reasonable price. Parking is tight. Need to make reservation.

Go and experience the style of food, the delightful and helpful staff. We had the house special which is various meats, seafood and lots of veges cooked in front of you in a broth. I noticed the locals put red meats to one side to cook individually as they can tend to stew. Fun and new for us. Wait staff... More
