We travel to Oahu every year and we've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed. The daily specials are always great but we always gravitate to the ox tail soup and baked short ribs. This is a Japanese restaurant that serves local Hawaiian grind (food) which is always fresh, tasty, and comforting. Tourists and locals frequent this small restaurant and all leave with a smile. The service is prompt but not always warm...they take your order, bring it hot w/ not too much chatter or smiles. The parking lot is very small for this size restaurant and the restrooms are outside through the parking lot. This restaurant is just off Ala Moana up from the Ward Factory Stores and ez to get to from Waikiki where we always stay.
