We were staying at the Modern hotel for a friends birthday We decided Morimoto would be a wonderful place for a birthday dinner as we had come from Australia and thought it was a must do. Fabulous food and wonderful service.

The sashimi is excellent! Ask for the daily specials they'll be the freshest and seasonal. Simply delicious. Beware some dishes which can be ruined by too much sauce. Also loved the tofu, made fresh at table. The outside dining is wonderful with the view over the marina, especially at sunset. Service is warm and welcoming in a lovely Hawaiian way.

We were impressed with the omakase menu. Forward thinking and yet traditional. A nice mix of modern and old. Blown away by the chawan mushi. A must visit restaurant! !

We were blown away by the quality of the food and service at this restaurant! We were staying at the Modern Honolulu Hotel so we didn't even need to leave the building. We started with a mixed plate of Shashimi which was fresh and delicious. We would highly recommend the Crispy Rock Shrimp and the Scallops. The ribs and Duck,duck,duck... More

We went to Morimoto last night for our wedding anniversary as it came highly recommended by a number of our friends. The ambience in the boutique Modern Hotel is stylish, the restaurant much bigger than we expected. Very nice location on the balcony over looking the marina. The service was generally very attentive at the start but then disappeared. A... More

My sister and I chose the omekase menu for our experience at Morimoto and absolutely loved it. The tuna carpaccio, in particular, has stayed with me even though it's been a month since our meal. At the end of the meal there was a computer server issue and we had to wait nearly 30 minutes for our check to be... More

Great food, service and ambience - not cheap - but worth it. They type of experience where you feel incredibly special. The chocolate dessert than is a ball that melts is a stand out, as was the black cod and gyoza.

Delicious, couldn't fault any of the food! Went with 2 friends and we ordered a bunch of different dishes to share - I don't eat seafood but my friends said it was beautifully cooked. The chicken ramen was divine, gyoza delicious, kakuni (10 hr braised pork belly) melt-in-your-mouth incredible. We went back for lunch and I tried the loco moto... More

I went to dinner at Morimoto's with a group of a dozen women. The restaurant has lovely waterfront views, especially at sunset. It was too hot to eat outside, but that would have been best - as it's noisy inside. The staff was courteous, knowledgable, and charming. I tried the Duck, Duck Duck main course and it was delicious -... More
