The service was terrific and the food was delicious. The booth was very small but enough. But for a Tuesday they were very busy and there were several large parties. Almost everyone had the honey toast dessert. We had ordered too much and couldn't eat dessert. The garlic scallops hot pot was a... read more

We were greeted warmly and treated delightfully by the staff. Our group ordered shrimp tempura, spicy tuna roll, homemade tofu salad, spinach salad, grilled teriyaki chicken, yukari french fries, pork chop bites with... More

Now with outside seating, this place offers so much more. Appreciated that you have to option of sitting outside or inside now, since it can get rather noisy inside. Highly recommend lunch here as well.

Great place to go when you feel like having a few good drinks and some good Japanese Food. We usually just order a bunch of sushi rolls and share with everyone at the table... The bartenders are great!

There were three of us who went here to eat for the first time. We ordered pop and beer to start off. After I drank less than a quarter of my pop, I noticed some type of black spot on the inside of my glass. Nasty!!! It wasn't pop. I don't even want to think about what it was since... More

We visited during the happy hour and stayed for dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was nearly empty but when we left the... More

Shokudo is located close to Ala Moana Shopping Center and is a great place to enjoy Japanese food. The service is good overall, but depending on how busy it is, you may not get the best attention. Food is good overall, with a wide variety of dishes from sushi to yakitori to tempura! They also have a large drink menu.... More
