Went there for our wedding anniversary. The food was very good as well as the service. We ordered some sushi and various other things. The toro was some of the best I've had and the oysters vinegarette was delicious. If you are looking for good Japanese food for a good price this is the place. It's not cheap but worth... More

Really have always liked this place, great Sushi and the every inspiring "Chanko Nabe" which is a meal for 3 but a great sharing dish with presentation and cooked at the table. Sake is served in glass to the rim and bowl tradition and it is probably one of my favorites in Honolulu for Japanese food. Try to get a... More

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
