We have been going to the Kirin for about twenty years and have always had superb food. The staff remember us, even though we are only passing through Hawaii twice a year, and give us our favourite table. The tea-smoked duck is worth the trip by itself, but most other dishes are also delicious and generous. The beer is well priced for Honolulu and so is the food. The service has been faultless and they are very responsive to your needs, refilling glasses without being asked and making sure that everything is perfect. We will be there again next week and look forward to it!

I often have dinner here with a group of my friends (10 to 14). Here are dishes that are everyone’s favorite:

*Salt and Pepper Calamari & Salt and Pepper Uhu (uhu is a local fish also known as Parrot fish, it’s meat is white and has a fair amount of oil making it great for battering.) I usually order ½ to 1 order of each and have it combined on a plate. This possibly will be one of the best fried calamari dishes you’ll have in Honolulu.
*Sautee string beans with minced pork
*Lettuce wraps w/ either minced pork or you can ask for chicken
*Sesame pockets with Lamb & scallions or minced pork
*Smoked Tea duck
*Moo Shu Pork (sort of like a Chinese burrito)
*Walnut Shrimp

Basically everything is good but these are our favorites. Enjoy!

A preferred restaurant by those who are from the homeland, and I would agree.

The food quality was quite good. The problem was that the bill was about $200 for 2 vegetable dish -half portion, a shrimp -half portion,tofu w/ spinach- half portion, 2 glass of house wine and lobster.

The head waiter had asked if we were from Japan and then gave me a bill with a healthily tip he had filled in.

Is this the Hawaiian way to treat a well travelled couple?
