We come to Oahu every year and we do not fail to visit Magokoro. Their lunch deals are very reasonable and their main waitress is such a sweet lady.

We used to live in Tokyo so were looking for good Japanese food. Portions were good and prices reasonable. We were the only non-Asians in that evening. The service was friendly and expedient. The tuna sushi and garlic noodles were excellent. The gyoza not so...More
