My daughter loves sushi and that is what we ate almost the whole week while in waikiki. We stumbled apon Hawaiian cafe and went back several times it was so good. It is small, casual, friendly, and great food!
It doesn't have a liquor license but there is an ABC store across the street (of course) where you can pick up whatever you want to go with your meal. Her friend that goes to school in Hawaii even said it was one of the best meals he's had in Hawaii. The price is reasonable for waikiki, although not cheap.
The owner is really friendly and takes care of the customers.
