Description
This cozy bistro style Japanese restaurant is home to some excellent traditional eastern cuisine. They are perhaps best known for offering some truly exceptional tempura of various varieties, but ... Read more
their diverse menu has all sorts of favorites. The establishment is a bit on the cramped side, but if you are heading there for lunch, it shouldn't be much of a factor. However, at dinnertime the place tends to get packed, making some feel a bit claustrophobic if they are prone to that sort of thing. Still, it's not crowded without a reason, and with great seafood and a wide range of straight from the source Japanese dining options, this establishment is high quality all the way.

My family and I came here for a sort of goodbye dinner and I think we picked a pretty good spot. Good food. Soothing interior. Pretty waitresses. I vaguely remembered liking it the first time I was here, but now it's definitely established itself as one of my favorite restaurants in Hawaii.

Prices seem daunting at first, but their servings don't disappoint. (They have good weekday specials that end at 5 pm. Sadly, we missed that.) I ordered the Deluxe Sushi and was thoroughly satiated, which doesn't always happen when I order sushi combos. Texture was excellent and flavor was above par. My mom ordered a bento box with butterfish and salmon, and each piece was grilled to a nice flavorful char. My dad had the soba, and complained about fourteen times... which must mean it's pretty good because he normally complains fifty-seven times.

Awesome food, but the wait is usually long unless you op for the sushi bar.
