The decor and ambiance were inviting and a great blend of traditional and modern Japanese. It's traditional in it's feel, size (VERY quaint/small) and layout but modern in it's decor. The presentation the same, traditionally artful in modern stoneware. It's the closest thing to fine dining food in served Japan I've found here locally. The fish was the freshest I've ever experienced and the tempura was unequalled! The rest of the menu is equally impressive. I sampled a great many and none of them dissapointed. In fact most were incredible! The only thing keeping this from being the ultimate Japanese dining experience was the slow service. The servers were extremely polite and as attentive as they could as the place filled up quickly and was abuzz but there were only two of them and the wait time bordered on aggrevating. You really have to look for this one because blink and you'll miss it. Also parking is an issue on Kapahulu so if you can taxi or walk it it would be better. I highly recommend this one as a must visit. I guarantee you'll fall in love with the food but be prepared to wait for it. It's not cheap either but definately worth every penny!

Me & my family had the pleasure to dined at Iron Chef Morimoto's restaurant. Noise level was a little high, but, God! I love the liveliness and the energy the room feels. Special "Thank you" to all of the Chefs in the kitchen, and Managers on the floor for making my dining experience so memorable. Hanaho
This place is totally awesome!!! Never again will I be ordering plain Spam Musubi whenever I am in Oahu. This place takes making Musubis way up another level!!! You get excited just looking at the menu. So many variations to try, yet so little time during our one week stay. My whole family loves this place!!!
Discovered this place last year while vacationing with my wife. Took the kids with us this year, and has been a family hit since. The thicker milky broth in my opinion is better than the shoyu version. The thick pork slices that comes with the ramen is still dancing in my head...
This place rocks! The rolls were delicious however the fact that they serve multiple personal orders on one plate makes it confusing when eating in groups. Try the Echigo beer...great beer and goes well with the food!
Terrific Japanese seafood buffet! The attractive setting, attentive service, and delicious array of tasty Japanese dishes make this restaurant our go-to place for special occasions.
Rolls are like 9 to 18 $. We got Philly spicy tuna and a jumbo tempura with a sake and Coke bill was like 50 pretty good quantity for being right on the may area
Yakitori Glad has an authentic taste of Japanese style yakitori.Service is great.Everthing on the menu is only $3.99 You need to rvsp to get a table.
Tai Sei has a variety of Ramen and a large menu of combos and daily specials. Don't forget to try the Curry Chicken Katsu "old style"
I've tasted ramen in many places in Japan, California, and Hawaii and this is still the best ramen. Especially good is their tan tan ramen.
