My friend and I were staying at the Kitano Mendana hotel and wanted some sushi. I had some stir fried noodles and my friend had sushi. No complaints. Friendly service. Great place to eat if you're craving Japanese food in Honiara.

Food here is hit and miss. In my experience it was more miss than hit, and I would dread being invited to eat here, even when accompanied by Japanese friends. There is definitely a couldn't care less attitude by management. After one visit, I spent the next day in bed and not through too much alcohol! I did not go... More

This is the only place I love to eat when I am craving for that high quality meal. Loved seating on the balcony while served by these well presented and trained local girls. I love their attention to customers. Fine Japanese dishes and great place! Also if you do not like Japanese Restaurant, the menu for typical western meals remain... More

Excellent service, food about 7/10 only because Japanese food here has to all be imported, except for fresh fish/some vegetables. Good size mains cost about SBD $180. Had seafood udon and the seafood was largely lobster which was a bonus!

This is a wonderful place if you love Japanese food! Located in the Mendana Hotel, so easy walking in town. They have excellent sashimi and the bento box is always really good too. Good for business lunches, dinners etc but great for friends out for lunch and dinner too. They have a private room that we have held buffets in,... More
