“All you can eat sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

This great Japanese restaurant is all about presentation and taste as row after row of delicious sushi is revealed, including shrimp, fish, and ice cream bar in their expansive menu. Fun time!

“Not Vegas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I had high hopes after my experience at the Vegas Todai - but this one did not measure up either in sushi quality or cleanliness. All said though if you want to pig out on sushi this is your place.

“Thoroughly Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We loved the Todai in Portland, Seattle, and Redmond when they were still around so when we arrived to Honolulu, we were so excited to have dinner here. I was completely disappointed in the selection, freshness, and lack of service. The selection felt like it was considerably less than in Washington or Oregon state. The atmosphere felt extremely tired and they can use a good clean up and renovation. The staff were not busy and I saw a number of them walk by without clearing our plates, nor the two tables near ours. At one point, there were about 4 staff members just chatting while our dirty plates were on our tables. For the price you pay, just go somewhere else. Will not return to this location.

“Good for a sushi buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had dinner here and its a bit expensive but you have a lot of choices of sushi and can try a lot of different ones without have to order a whole roll. They had crab legs but they were cold and hard to crack open. The hot items are a little above average, but not as good as the sushi. For dessert they have some cakes, fruit and a chocolate fountain. It's not super-fancy but overall we enjoyed it.

“Good Poke”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Pronounced (Po-kay)...I like it but my daughter (the sushi guru) didn't. I loved the poke salad, minus the salad...lol They also have good pork, steak and a wide variety of foods to choose from.
