Good traditional Japanese. We didn't have much as we weren't too hungry, but the few items we had were delicious. Small, cute and clean restaurant with good service. Would definitely go back next time we're in Honolulu!

We've been here many times and we've never been disappointed. The King Salmon and soft shell crab would be our favorites here. This time we ordered the crab salad, Hamachi Collar, Unagi(eel) roll, deep fried shrimp, king salmon, and the dragon roll. Everything was perfect!...More

One of the best izakaya restaurant in Honolulu. Lots of variety, meals and sake. But be prepared to pay more than the casual dinner.

They serve awesome Japanese food. I like their pork and fish quite much. It opens at 5pm and reservation is recommended.

Celebrated our anniversary here and we are already planning our next visit. Wafu steak was flavorful along with the eggplant and mushroom medley. The star of the show for us was the sashimi platter B. Every slice was a bit of heaven-so fresh and so...More
