It was a dark and stormy night (it actually was) and because it was, there was no line of diners waiting to get in even though it was a Friday night. We were in town for one night and walked over from our hotel to...have dinner at Shokudo. We were seated fairly quickly, although our table wasn't in the best of spots, right next to where the orders go in and the food comes out from the kitchen. We ordered the Teriyaki Chicken Quesadilla, Hibachi Teriyaki Salmon, and Homemade Tofu Salad. The Quesadilla and Salmon came out quickly but we had to ask about the Tofu Salad later as it still hadn't come out about ten minutes after the first items did. We loved the Quesadilla so much we've tried to recreate it at home. The Salmon was cooked perfectly and the Tofu Salad was delicious. We ordered too much so we couldn't finish it all and once again, no room for the honey toast! Oh well, next time!More

Nothing special about this Japanese in Honolulu. The food and service were ok. We could find free parking nearby and the price was what we expected.

The service was ok. Then length of time it took to get the food was a problem. My food came out first then 20 minutes later, my friends food came out.

Back around 2006 up until three years ago (2016) Shokudo was fantastic- delicious Japanese fusion and great service. We went back this week for dinner, food was average and service quite terrible. We queued for 45 min, waitstaff forgot about us and gave our table...to another family, didn't even apologize. Our actual waitress was nice although not overly helpful. Food quality definitely is average if not below average.More

So the food is 4 star but service only 2 stars. We had the Charsu and it was really good, meat was tender and hand a lot of flavor. Salmon teriyaki was also cook very good fish was tender and sauce was good. The side...salad with the fried soba noodles were also very good. The service was poor. Server came to table gave us water and see you later. Came back askes if ready to order, we asked for more time and see ya. Didn't ask if we wanted drinks juat left. Finaly came back took our order and I asked for drinks. Food came quickly and server removed plates quickly. It was a bit busy so maybe an off day for the server, but the food was good so I would come back to see if it was a one time thing or not.More

I found this place on Instagram and was super excited to come and get some sushi! All there photos looked amazing and I’d picked everything I wanted already based from their posts online only to find out they actually have minimal sushi options and don’t...let you create your own.... So, I asked the waitress why I couldn’t find a specific roll on their menu that they posted online, she said “that roll is old” (the image of said roll was only posted 4 days ago) it makes me so mad when restaurants post photos of food they don’t serve online! Because some people travel to try exactly what they’re posting! So, let’s talk about the food, atmosphere and service! Service: was fairly quick and attentive Atmosphere: dead, not high class as presumed but that’s just Hawai’i for you. Food: Not impressed with a place that serves $15 sushi roles and has 2cent chop sticks to go with it. We ordered the crab roll, it was very small, thought it would be larger, thicker pieces. Flavour was okay. Next up was the teriyaki chicken bento box, it was super good, taste was amazing. Lastly was the mermaid roll without spicy tuna, it was also amazing! Super good taste.More

Large numbers from our convention found their way here for lunch, causing some service issues. My Ramen bowl was great, the Udon a bit overcooked, and the service uneven. Nice atmosphere in the place, and overall reasonably priced.

My husband and I went here with another couple and had a great time! The appetizers were tasty, I got the potstickers and they were cooked perfectly crispy. Our waiter was kind, attentive, and gave a great recommendation for my meal. The ramens were tasty...and plenty of it, I need more spice in my meals so the waiter happily brought me extra spicy miso sauce to add to mine. We finished off the night with the honey bread desert, delicious but make sure you ask for an extra scoop of ice cream (2 scoops isn’t enough). Definitely coming here again!More

Hello I am sorry but I cannot answer your question. I am surprised that no value is shown on the voucher. I think your best bet would be to e-mail the restaurant and ask them. I hope you get a clear answer. Regards Alistair

I don't know for sure but, I lived in Honolulu for 6 years and it was already opened. I moved 2 years ago from Honolulu, so...do the math!
