A reasonable place to pick up bentos for the beach

We go here to get cooked/sushi bentos to take to the beach. You have plenty of choices for around $10 and they provide the chopsticks. The food is good but not restaurant quality. Keep in mind it is take out for a reasonable price and you will see food items more likely found in Japan rather... read more

I hardly shop or completely avoid Shirokiya because it caters to Japanese customers only. Everything is Japanese. If you're Japanese then this store is for you.

We stumbled upon this place and had a really good meal. The inside seating was extremely noisy, so we opted for outside seating. Outside has live music. The hot food served in hot stone bowls, so it was perfect temperature. I had a lychee martini and my husband a couple of beers + dinner for us both for under $50.00.... More

I love stopping in here and looking at all the Japanese food. There are many vendors and they all offer different packaged items. I often pick up Garlic Chicken, BBQ Chicken, Inari, Chicken Donburi or Chicken Teriyaki to take back to my hotel for lunch or dinner. They also have a buffet bar and sit down restaurant inside. The vendors... More

I'm glad that I ventured into Ala Moana Centre to find this gem. It made me forget about missing out on dining at places like Murakame's Udon and Ginza Tonkatsu Bairin because Shirokiya has it all! Upstairs, you'll find a vast marketplace full of little food vendors selling all sorts of delectable Japanese and Korean treats. Prices are decent too!

It's a two-floor food court in a shopping mall, and it offers a variety of delicious Japanese cuisines. It's a bit pricey, but SO worth it!

We enjoy this Japanese dept. store. Always something for us. Go upstairs. Many, many Japanese food/treat vendors. So many different smells and thoughts. Some good and well, some not so good. Usually crowded. The nicest part we found, is sitting pretty much center stage, is the beer(bier) garden. Serves beer and wine. Also a few nibbles. The seating is along... More

If you are in the mall, go to the second floor of shirokiya. It is basically a food court of only japanese food. The most expensive thing you can get is 11.99. There are different portions, food items, sushi, ramen...There are seats and tables that you can use. Its right by the convention centre so easy to go to for... More
