“Good value and food in Waikiki off the beaten path”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Found this place at the last minute basis a Yelp search and was able to be seated immediately at 5:30PM. Our party had the curry beef, pastas, and Loco Moco and the latter was very good. Attentive and friendly service. As in the other reviews, the place gets very crowded after around 6PM and must be on the list of economy restaurants in some Japanese travel books. Also near some other street like restaurant stands that are probably worth trying given low prices. Would definitely recommend for the budget traveler.

“A hidden gem we just happened to find!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great restaurant kind of tucked away on a side street in Waikiki. EVERYthing in Hawai'i is expensive and eating out is probably THE most expensive thing to do. Having said that this place is right in line with every other place for prices. The difference is the food and the wait staff. The salmon fettuccine, and a steak were ordered and both pronounced excellent. Also my daughter and I shared the mixed appetizer and the spinach salad. Lovely outdoor seating and nice wine list and the perfect atmosphere for a nice night out!

“Should be ranked higher on Trip Advisor!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled upon Aloha Table at nIght. The second floor as lit with tiki torches around the outside balcony. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was not only amazing but priced well.

For appetizer we tried the cabbage and pork--it had dumpling sized square cabbage slices and slightly salted pork chunks. I reccomend trying that for starts. As for dinner, I tried he loco moco since we were after all in Hawaii. It was tasty but pretty standard. My other half ate the salmon special--wow! So deli jobs with a traditional Japanese seasoning, cilantro, and miso soup to flavor.

We had all that food and 5 beers and the bill was only 75.00. Also the tables were nicely spaced so we didn't feel crowded. This places deserves much more credit than the ranking on tripadvisor.

“Hidden from View But Outstanding”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Hidden on the second floor on a side street in downtown Waikiki you will find a small intimate Japanese/Hawaiian style dining experience. You have to search it out. Our beachboy turned us onto the small restaurant which he claims to eat at 4 days a week. The servers were attentive and were very familiar with the menu items. We had the Kalua Pork Quesadillas, a Caesar salad, and Premium Kobe style Loco Moco (beef patties, mushrooms, two eggs, and rice). Enough for two. Delicious and very reasonably priced. The cost of beer and wine was inexpensive compared to the major tourist restaurants in downtown Waikiki. Parking is free in front of the restaurant but there are spaces for only about 6 cars. You climb up stairs to get to the front entrance. There is both indoor and outdoor tables. Very clean but no view.
