Kiwami Ramen is located in the basement level of the Wakiki Shopping Center. Don't be scared off by the food court, it's in the back and is a nice cozy restaurant. Ideal for between 2-6 people but any more and you're probably better off finding a larger restaurant. The service is good, and the food comes out quick.
How is the food? Well, I've been to my fair share of Ramen houses in the USA and it's pretty good. Average price for a bowl of Ramen is $7.50. If you're a big eater you may find yourself still hungry, but if you're looking for a good bowl of authentic Japanese Ramen in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki's shopping district...this is your spot.
There's only two things I would recommend to them:
1) Allow for Super-Size bowls (more noodles, etc for an extra $1.50)
2) More appetizers on the menu (i.e. gyoza, agedashi tofu)
*this ramen house stays true to the style in Japan by keeping it just Ramen, but here in the States we need more to fill our bellies
