Old Japanese style restaurant, wife and kid love it - service is good, food is good, all is good . Located on the side of the highway, just past an area the locals refer to as "double lanes" in the town of Kainaliu -

I had a great shrimp tempura and the food is pretty good. This is an older building and is an established long term Hawaii business. The owners are long term islanders and if you are looking to "talk story", they have a few to tell!

Simple traditional Japanese food. This is the place to go. Good food and good service. Busy with lots of locals. Tempura, udon, or curry stew whatever you order it's good.

My husband and I have lived in Hawaii for the last 20 years. Believe it or not finding a restaurant where the food is consistently good is not easy.
The food at Teshima's is consistently good! When you order a #3, you know that you will get what you ordered. The food is fresh and delicious - a combination of Japanese dishes combined with a local flair.
The service is fast and efficient.
It has been a local tradition on island for years.
They do not take credit cards, however there is an ATM in the restaurant.

Ate here for dinner. Around $20 a person. It was very good food.
Service was fine--a little aloof. The staff wasn't rude just got the feeling they wait on a lot of people and don't care if you are there or not. This is a diner type place. Not fancy but interesting to look at.
