Their Musubi is quite awesome. The price is very reasonable and the food are tasty. There is no parking and across the street are tour bus parking. Don't leave the car there on the sidewalk.

Ordered 10 bento boxes for a lunch meeting at Iyasume. Excellent variety -- teriaki beef, teriaki chicken, chicken Katsu, Mochiku chicken. All were well made with furikake rice, cabbage and another vegetable. All came with Miso soup. Very tasty. Good value. Off of Keeaumoku, near Ala Moana Shopping Center. Small "hole in the wall" but great bentos. Next time I'll try the Musubi.

This is located in the same alley as Big Wave Dave's, which is how we stumbled upon it after our surf lesson. A great find, with authentic Japanese lunch food. We got tonjiru (pork stew), various rice balls, bento, and spam-egg-cucumber musubi, and took it all to Waikiki Beach (1 block away). A much better lunch experience than many of the more expensive places in Waikiki, and for only ~8 bucks/person!

Good and authentic Japanese food. Can't beat the prices either! They are located not to far from Waikiki, but you'd probably want a car to get there. You really don't want to sit down and eat here, but get take out and eat at Kapiolani park or somewhere nice.

This place is really small and a bit difficult to find but it is well-worth it. They serve some great Japanese dishes. My favorites are the different curries. The prices also makes this place a rare exception in Waikiki, had a filling lunch for $5. It is however not a place one would go for the atmosphere.
