perfect place to dine!! It’s the most tasty sushi I ever have eaten!!
by Jojoa on October 11, 2018
Enjoyed the food and the service. Only wish I had more room to eat more of their delicious sushi! The avocado chawanmushi was a winner. If you get the macadamia tofu appetizer, don't put any soy or wasabi on it as it will drown out the subtle nutty flavor. The toro was melt-in-in-your-mouth delicious.

Sushi is top quality and the prices are below what I would have expected. Orders are placed from a tablet on the table and it's confusing to find a few things but a simple press of the "call server" button and help arrived. Sushi and Sashimi selections were very broad and the portions were good for the price. The sake list is also extensive and our server made a great recommendation. Highly recommend a reservation as this place fills up quickly!

Closest to Sushi in japan as you can get in Hawaii

Delicious, seasonal, local sushi. Fast service. Highly recommend the omakase menu.

We’ve been here twice and we really like it.
The quality is well worth the price. For two of us, we spent around $8 including 3 beers and a lemonade.
We ordered the Otoro which was good for the price. Melted in our mouths. Their version of amaebi was yummy. Disappointed they had all the amaebi heads pre-fried so when it came to us it was cold and soggy.
The salmon is always good and same with the hotate. We really like the clam miso. It’s a bigger bowl so we shared it this time.
We also ordered the fried oysters. I feel like they were better last time. But they weren’t terrible. We also tried the tamago and Chu Toro which were good.
It is noisy in here. So definitely not romantic. Last time we got a regular table which was fine but this time we sat at the sushi bar and there’s no ipad to order from but the sushi chef chatted with us bit.
This is our new go to place for sushi.
Last time we got the tuna special. It is a good deal but I would rather have Otoro. Their Negitoro roll was just ok.

Excellent service and always fresh fish. Always enjoyable place to dine; one of my favorite places. Quality food with reasonably priced items.

It’s one of the best sushi restaurants. I love dining here.
by Ebs1 on September 30, 2018
Pretty much a glorified "Genki Sushi" with some fancier rolls and a little more of the better cuts of fish. Meh....

A+ sushi. Definitely check it out while in oahu

Food and service was great, as always! My favorite place to eat. I will be back soon :)

Our good friends came to Hawaii from main land.
We wanted to take them here. They loved this place. We were very enjoyed our time.

A very EASY dining experience considering how cumbersome Waikiki can be. Pleasant staff and a good sushi experience.
by Marisa on September 1, 2018
This is definitely a spot for every sushi lover to check out if you don’t want to break the bank. Reasonably priced, great quality and they have a decent selection. The ambience is great, casual but like an upscale casual haha. I love that you order at your own pace via their iPad system. Their draft beer is also really good, served a a great temperature ( this may seem silly but it’s a big deal to my boyfriend and I! ) I definitely recommend checking this place out but definitely make a reservation as they get busy and I saw a sign saying that they weren’t taking any walk-in’s when we went for dinner on a Saturday evening.

My boyfriend and I went there to celebrate our Anniversary for dinner. It was awesome to have gotten reservations 3 days prior. There was a lot of people waiting to get in at 5:30pm. They opened the door promptly and took those with reservations first. We were told beforehand that we would have 90 minutes, which was totally fine. We saw that we needed to have “reserved” the omikase 3 days beforehand; unfortunately, this type of reservations is not available via Open Table. We were kinda of bummed, but that was okay. They had a Chef’s sushi special platter of the day and that was perfect!!! It was soooooo goood!! So happy that we chose that. We each had a platter, which consisted of 12 delicious items. It also came with a 3 set appetizer- OMG, it was delish! I just loved the consistency of the tofu (kinda like ice cream!). We had some sake to top things off and we were set! We were too full to have dessert...maybe next time! We will definitely be back!

Fantastic value, awesome food, outstanding prices. I rate this restaurant 10 stars - 5 stars is too low for this restaurant. The Japanese food this restaurant serves at the prices they charge is unbeatable. The deep fried flounder, grilled salmon, sushi, pork belly, clam miso soup, salmon skin salad were phenomenal - I'm still dreaming about the food. The flounder was prepared perfectly, nice and crispy, so you can eat bone, tail, head, and all. YUM!! Salmon was sautéed to perfection, light, moist with slight shio. Sushi - uni, unagi, ikura, ama ebi (with the head fried crispy), natto, toro, maguro, niku, - unbelievably CHEAP prices!! This restaurant is a must try dining experience.

It is a fine sushi restaurant but not comparable to the HQ in Tokyo in terms of quality. The rice was too dry, especially that of rolls, and sashimi was too chunky. Tempura was delicious (avocado wasn’t a hit with us though) but without ginger. The presentation was Japanese and beautiful and we were served quickly. We had too high of expectation perhaps because we loved the sushi in their Umegaoka restaurant. You can get similar quality elsewhere for much less.

Excellent food, great & fast service, love the ability to order your food w/o bugging the wait staff. Even parking is pretty decent for Waikiki.
by LeeandRich on August 18, 2018
Fabulous fresh sashimi/sushi! Perfect way to start our 1 Year Anniversary weekend staycay! We look forward to going back again soon!
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2018
Terrible service. Waited 30 minutes for 2 pieces of nigiri. We were barely paid attention to and were purposely ignored when we called our waiter.
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2018
No one told us we would only have 90 Minutes to eat and no one came to tell us we had last call until 5 minutes before our 90 minutes were up. They allowed us to stay an extra few minutes but the rush to eat sushi ruined a good dinner. With only 90 minutes to eat, it makes it hard to eat as a group. Would not come back with a group, only a date night place. I could understand a time limit if we were not ordering and taking a table but we were steadily ordering all night and drinking. Lame.

Love, love, love this restaurant! They have iPad ordering Which is easy and convenient. The food is very fresh, tasty, and satisfying...got to get the kanimiso salad!

Ate here for my birthday and always good as I expected it to be
by JoyceB on August 11, 2018
The food was amazing but I didn't like having to order on the ipad. I really rather have just ordered from the menu. The staff was friendly but when trying to order through them, they just would take the ipad and order it from there too. Just make sure whoever is sitting next to the ipad is okay with placing all the orders and that that person is also good with technology so it won't take too long to order your food. It was convenient though but wish it could've been either or. The food is super good and make sure to make a reservation because everyone was trying to get in there. Very popular!

Sushi was pretty good. Make reservation on opening(5:30pm) if you can and order your food first from iPad as soon as you are seated. That way kitchen gets your order while other customers are still choosing their drinks. This was the first time we used this establishment and our reservation was 5:30. First dishes were timely served but for additional order, we had to wait like 20 or more minutes for one roll of avocados on served. Still, food was good and server was excellent so here is five star.

The lunch specials were great! Beautiful presentation and good value.
by DanM on August 5, 2018
An absolute favorite. Great Sushi and some sides. I want to "say don't go here"...so I can get a reservation without having to wait two weeks. But I won't do that to this really BEST all around Sushi place in Honolulu. Please leave room for us now and then. All the expected items, and some great and large kazanoko, engawa and other wonderful sushi as well as specialty rolls that are not only very good, they are very reasonably priced.
And... grand-daughter loves both the kampyo and the "sushi train" that delivers it to the table.
MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED... except on days I want to go.
by SKBC on August 5, 2018
Very accommodating. Convenient “tablet” ordering. Fast service.
by KASH on August 3, 2018
Overall everything was very good from the food, service, and atmosphere.
The one thing that annoyed us was that we received a gift card. It was a Prince Waikiki gift card that could be used for anything, (hotel/restaurant/gift shops) When we got the gift card, it even came with a Katsumidori Menu, so when making the reservation I did not confirm whether or not the gift card could be used....unfortunately, I just ASSUMED it could be.
When we tried to pay for our dinner. The waiter said we could not use it. In his best English, we understood that their register was not equipped to take the gift card. I believe they opened in March and it is August so not sure why the waiter said this.

I finally got a chance to try this restaurant that many of my friends and coworkers were raving about. Made reservations over a month in advance. They apparently do three seatings per night. Food was delish- great quality and definitely worth the price. Can’t wait to come back!
by JimiR on July 19, 2018
I say everything is great! But..
I just wish they would answer the phone more often. I might have some questions concerning my reservation or other concerns.
Other than that, the one of the sushi place to eat at in Hawaii! But guarantee I will always come back and recommend this place to anyone!
by LianneK on July 14, 2018
Huge slices of fish, fast service, delicious special rolls.
