Great local Japanese food at a great value. Enjoyed their nabeyaki udon while my friend enjoyed the pork tonkatsu. Both come with a small salad with their delicious house miso dressing.

My wife and I went here for an early dinner after an afternoon of Sunday errands. The food was home-made and made with the freshest ingredients. Service was attentive. Will come back when shopping at the Waikele Outlet Mall.

Manager was a great guy and fun to talk to. Chicken Teriyaki was not very good, and the rest of the dish was average at best.

Small Japanese restaurant in Waipahu, see my reviews on Waipahu Cafe regarding the type of neighborhood, that's popular with the locals for food and drinks. What we call in Hawai'i as a "pau hana" place. It's where a lot of people stop by after work...More
