You will feel like you are in Japan, not in Hawaii when you are there. All the foods are authentic and uniquely Japanese foods. Mostly tonkatsu! The sauce is so good, and unique! I tried their mixed Tonkatsu meal for my dinner. The way they...More

Amazing genuine Katsu cooking. I recommend the thick cut tenderloin, but everyone in out party ordered something different and thoroughly enjoyed it

We visited there around 9 without reservation , but they gave us a table within 10 mins. We tried the Donbury of tiger shrimp and the chicken Katsu. Both foods come with a lot of salad. Decent price for this area. Good food

This place did not disappoint !!!! We walked in around noon-ish and there was about 3 tables. A friendly staff greeted us and sat us down immediately. The first question I had for them was if they still had the Kurobuta cutlet ($36 and supposedly...More

This place serves delicious and tender pork Tonkatsu. I may be a bit biased but Tonkatsu and rice is my version of steak and potatoes and Ginza Bairin does it extremely well. Set meals range from $20-25 and come with rice, miso soup, and salad....More
