“Iced green tea was brilliant!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

i was a bit disappointed with the sushi roll selections. However, on the night we dined, they had a buffet which looked pretty good but not worth the $45+ price. For good a good sushi meal go to Waikiki instead.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Myself and four friends enjoyed great food and drinks in a very relaxed pace venue for Sushi. We tried some food we hadn't had before, and liked some new treats. While I don't believe it's the best Sushi I have ever had, it certainly is good. Our waitress was wonderful and explained a lot of things to us and put up with our laughing and antics. We really enjoyed our time there. Will go back again.

“Authentic Japanese Restaurant comfortable for all guests.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Having traveled to japan over 100 times, I can share this is close to being in Japan and staying on Oahu! The food, the atmosphere, the furnishings, the staff and even the bathroom transports me back to Japan with perfect cuisine, drink options and surroundings.

It seemed they. Don't keep the buffet open very late when we got there at eight thirty nothing was replenished and most of the hot items were cold
The sushi was good and salad and a few desserts
Other guests ala carte items looked better. Nice service and atmosphere strong drinks
