On our recent trip to Honolulu we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at this Restaurant. We booked early so that we could enjoy an evening experience. The food was delicious but we felt as though they were trying to rush us on so that they could have our table.The cooking show was short and disappointing. Not value for money.

We had a fabulous meal at Tanaka of Tokyo East Restaurant. The chef was absolutely brilliant, he was very entertaining. The food was superb and the restaurant atmosphere was very lively. We were fortunate to have a seat in the centre of the cooking grill and I was amazed, what an experience. I absolutely loved the food, first class everything.

Extraordinary tepanjaki experience with Head Chef Lester, not only a great cook but a funny and entertaining chef with great stories, who made the tepanjaki dinner excellent not only because of the food but also because of the fun. Food included full meals with sirloin, lobster and chicken and great sides of salad and miso soup as well as unlimited... More

We have been going to Tanaka of Tokyo for over 30 years and have always been very pleased with the food, service, and atmoshere. The Teppan servers are skilled and put on a performance while cooking your meal to perfection. Their tropical drinks are terrific

Have visited here many times and food has always been great. Service is friendly and exceptional. Many Japanese eat here too, so that should speak volumes in itself. Suggest trying the shrimp, scallops, or the fillet. The chef's really make a show your dinner. Better bring a big appetite!

Stopped in at Tanaka of Tokyo for dinner with friends. The seafood teppanyaki was very good, had the seafood combo and scallop with a bottle of 2013 Charles Krug NapaValley. Reserved and was taken to the teppan straight away! Good food. Great service! Excellent value for Waikiki, shall return
