What a Gem!
We've passed by this place tons of times while shopping at Ala Moana, always thought about stopping to eat, but never did. Now, we are scratching our heads asking "why?" It's hard to tell from the outside, but this is a very comfortable, well-appointed restaurant with world class food and service. We tried several appetizers and a few main dishes (grilled tako, tempura sweet potato, katsu, butter fish, spicy seafood salad... to name some) and all were extremely delicious. The Manager/Chef and servers were attentive, friendly and gracious and did not overwhelm you as some restaurants do. Can't wait to return and try other items on the menu. Very nice place with fresh, high quality food and less expensive then we anticipated. What a gem!

Each item from appetizer and salad to main dish and desert was excellent. The homemade ice-cream, we ordered caramel, was a surprise hit. The accompanying azuki bean lumpia was crisp and balanced the bite of the lightly sweetened ice cream.

Great Food! in Ala Moana
I was surprised, I decided to try this Restaurant recommended by OpenTable. It turned out to be very good. Their sesame salad is very tasty and their butter-fish was cooked perfectly. Anyways this unexpected great Japanese with pleasant dining experience that's not super expensive. I definitely will go again.

Not a bad restaurant for being
Not a bad restaurant for being located in a shopping mall. Unfortunately the food quality was better a few years back when they had the head chef from Japan running the place. Still not a bad choice.

Great Food! in Ala Moana
We ate here last minute, the food is always good, and reasonable, Rokkaku is becoming a favorite of ours, the radish salad was yummy, and the curry tongue was super tender, you should try this dish, the mashed potato under the tongue just loved it. Anyhow always pleased!

Real Japanese Food!
Their quality of rice is very good.
This is what I want to eat everyday.
Service is very attentive.
We normally go to lunch, but I recommend you to go there for dinner.
Menu has more variety to choose from very authentic Japanese dishes.

Always a winner!
We've been here several times and have yet to experience a bad meal. Every dish is excellently prepared and tasty. Portions are good size, even the small $5 dishes offer a wonderful option. You can literally eat very well for $30. Don't let the mall location fool you. We look forward to returning again and again.

guaranteed enjoyable meal
guaranteed enjoyable meal if you order what we had: tofu salad (toasted sesame seeds on 3 generous mounds of tofu with a sweet, light, not too vinegary dressing), shrimp tempura (always perfectly fried, sweet and tender) jidori chicken with yuzu kosho, miso soup (best flavor, always seasoned well). Love this place!
