On our periodic seniors outing, we ventured out into the busy Ala Moana Shopping Center/Kapiolani Blvd business area. We all heard of, but never had an opportunity to dine at Shokudo Restaurant. Annie, a young bubbly host, made us feel quite comfortable and provided so many wonderful suggestions for our luncheon. I selected the combination assorted tempura and teriyaki chicken,... More

We enjoyed the food, service and drinks however, 3 beers were $25 and 3 vodka sodas were $25 and 2 fried rices were $25 ... for family of 5 , it was $239. Steep considering we have one pure vegetarian. Sushi was good, they serve each roll separately instead of a boat. Kids loved it but I thought it was... More

This is not high class quality sushi. It's just super super yummy, kind of sweet, and very fulfilling. We got the sushi pizza (a little disappointing), the lobster dynamite (YUM), a spicy tuna roll (very good), bimbibap (GREAT), and the honey toast. Didn't love the ambience - felt overly lit and a bit cold.

Absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. The modern setting, friendly staff and most of all bomb food! Had the best meal of my life here! Everything was superb but the honey toast & ice cream hit home for me. Absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Great Japanese food tied in with some local favorites and reasonably priced. They have great service and great food!! You must try the honey toast for dessert....delicious. From sushi and sashimi to chicken katsu and steak.....you can find something for everyone with good quality food!

This restaurant is always my favorite in Honolulu. Most of the dishes are very delicious. The most memorable one is the toast with ice cream. It taste super good and must try it!! the location is good since it is near Alamoana Shopping center. Takes like 5 mins walk only. The environment is very nice and it's like modern design.

Reviews of the unagi roll were spot-on, it was superb. And the day's special ngiri of hamachi was outstanding. Staff were friendly and attentive. Free parking in the garage behind. ...call me a traditionalist, but I wish all Japanese restaurants offered the side salad with ginger dressing, and wakame salads.

We are here for the IUCN Conference and having a meeting of the minds. Just a short walk from the Convention Center so it works for a lunch meeting. The food was amazing, I am leaving here full. Just wish the waitress checked in more then once, we are a decent size group someone might need a refill or something... More
