“BEST......GARLIC.....CHICKEN.....EVER”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

at least on Oahu. I live on the west side and this is one of the few restaurants that I find is worth the drive into town . The best way to order is to get the bentos, but the plate lunches are OK (the mac salad is kinda heavy on the mayo for my taste). The large bentos are enough for two meals (and I'm a big guy); it comes with four large pieces of garlic chicken, teri beef and a hot dog, served on furikake rice (brown or white). Another reviewer said it best, once you've had their garlic chicken you will never be able to "get it out of your head". The location is tucked into an strip mall in an industrial area, so it may not be the easiest place to find for non-locals. Hours are a bit limited, too. To all the people who work at Sugoi: Thank you!

“Good food, short hours (no dinner)”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I agree with the other reviewers about the food - it was a real good lunch. So we decided to come back later in the week for dinner. Unfortunately, it was closed. So I've copied & paste hours from their website.

Hours of Operation:
Sunday - Thursday: 8:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.
Friday - Saturday: 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M

“The best garlic chicken in the world”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

No, I'm serious, I don't know how do they do it, but if you have ever had their garlic chicken, you will never be able to get it out of your head. Everytime you return to Honolulu, you'll have to go back.

“Slammin' Garlic Chicken, solid bentos!”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Depending on the time of the flight in, I make a from the airport stop at either Sugoi or another un-named lunch truck. There are LOTS of choices and combos and I've tried many, my current favorites:

Mixed Plate Garlic Chicken, Grilled Saba, Pork Cutlet, w/ Tossed & Mac salad (cost extra).

Or

The large Bento w/ Garlic Chicken (comes w/ omelette, hot dog, & teri beef).

Damn it... I'm salivating now, all the way in California...
