Tried this restaurant for the first time while visiting Oahu and was impressed with not only the great friendly service but with the very tasty dishes they offer, all in a very modern and well designed setting. We went there for lunch and went right in and was served very promptly. My daughter who currently lives on Oahu recommended it... More

My friend who made the reservation said that we were lucky to get a table because there was usually a two to three week wait and that we would be expected to finish our meal and depart within two hours. We were seated promptly and noticed that the restaurant was not nearly full. The server was personable and reasonably attentive... More

There are, needless to say, a plethora of Japanese Sushi restaurants in Waikiki, but this one is at the top of the list. The FRESHEST sushi with butter-like texture! Melt in your mouth! They serve all dishes Family Style, so be prepared to share! We ordered 6 different rolls which are sliced into 8 large pieces. More than enough for... More

We tried Shokudo in Honolulu for lunch. My daughter (age 7) tried sushi for the very first time here. She tried the shrimp tempura roll and really enjoyed it. She tried a spider roll but said she wasn't a fan. We all tried Honey Toast and it was really good.

Don't go here if you're a Japanese food traditionalist. They use their imaginations to come up with their own variations on Japanese food, with their sushi rolls really illustrating this. I had a maguro roll infused with garlic and sprinkled with garlic chips. It was delicious! Large menu though with great variety. Perhaps the traditionalists could actually find something there...

Our family dined here twice and really enjoyed it, thoroughly recommend the garlic scallops and the honey toast lives up to its billing.

It was my first time in Hawaii and one of my friends who I was visiting suggested this place for an early dinner. He knew the menu inside and out and he made ordering simple for us... I wish I remembered exactly what we ordered but all I remember is the sushi pizza and that everything we ordered we liked.... More

I went here with two friends, one who is a vegetarian. There were people waiting outside, a sign that good food awaits. Although it was crowded we were seated quickly. A fairly extensive menu with food meant to be shared. A favorite was the house made tofu. I also enjoyed the cucumber shiso salad. Overall food was good, and great... More

I've been here a few times, and the overall experience is consistent. The food is amazing! The service is very good, although I did have to wait a little long to close out my tab, but they were great and helpful in selecting what to eat. The drinks are also amazing, try the Vodka soda! The parking is very convenient,... More
