Diner Reviews
  • "Food quality good. I invited another couple to join us a they were very accommodating."

  • "Must try the perfectly grilled salmon belly. It is slightly crispy on the outside but so juicy on the inside. It's not a skimpy either, it comes with two large pieces and a smaller piece. So delicious!"

  • "Heard about Rokkaku from a Japanese friend so we decided to try out. The black pork belly came highly recommended so we ordered that. It was okay. Very lightly seasoned and you cook it on a hot stone. Nothing special. The most exciting thing on the menu was the uni tempura wrapped in shiso leaves. It was a bday celebration (which they knew ahead of time) but I guess the restaurant doesn't do anything special for bday celebrants. Overall, they didn't have anything special to offer. I'd much rather spend my money at other Japanese restaurants. "

  • "Took a friend there to celebrate her certification. Were the first there and seated promptly. I ordered the Taster's fixed price menu and was disappointed. Every dish was a sweet one with little variation. My friend ordered a teri-chicken ala carte and a California roll. She said both were "okay"; the California roll tasting better than others she'd had elsewhere. Some Japanese nationals walked in with 2 kids about 7 years old. The kids were rambunctious and had the run of the house. Conversations among other guests were disturbed; I couldn't hear my companion. The Japanese of today are very permissive with their children; no discipline or reprimands; no consideration for others. Did not have the best dining experience."

  • "Real deal. Excellent Japanese food, done really well. This is real Japanese food - like you would find in Japan. Not local watered down, sweetened, greasy local crap. A bit pricey probably due to the rent."

  • "The food was great. The service was absolutely some of the worst I have ever had. And because of that I would not return. The restaurant was basically empty so overcrowding was not the problem."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2013
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Rokkaku is a Japanese restaurant with two types of cuisine, both excellent. Traditional Japanese foods is served at lunch and dinner. But at dinner, the chef adds foodie items like foie gras sushi (delicious). Yes, it can be expensive but everything here is fresh and top quality. It's hidden in the mall so look for it. If you like Japanese food, you'll be glad you did."

  • "Everything was fantastic, especially the unagi kamameshi."
    Dined on 2/7/2013
  • "This is a small and quiet Japanese restaurant. The dinner menu does not serve teishoku and the items are ala carte. There's no sushi too. Kind of pricey but tasty. I love the oxtail nabe....it's the best. Lots of veggie, tofu, mushrooms and oxtail. The broth is clear and not fatty."

  • "Nice lunch. The food is a great value. Had heard a lot of nice things about this restaurant and the food did not disappoint."

    Dined on 12/6/2012
  • "Rokkaku is a pleasant change from the typical mall eatery. We do not frequent this establishment, but enjoy it from time to time as a special treat. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, as usual. However, service was slightly lacking this time. There is a language barrier with the staff that is usually workable, but there were a few thing lost in translation this time. They mixed up a few of our orders, but nothing extreme. All in all, polite and accommodating."

  • "They have recently changed chefs but the food is still good."
    Dined on 10/19/2012
  • "The food and service was outstanding. Since it's a Japanese restaurant, I expected great presentation and taste but small portions. That's what we got. But even with that, the pricing was fair for the size of the portions. I also looked over the wine list: the selection looked pretty broad and the mark-ups were not as much as I sometimes see. This place is definitely worth trying out!"
    Dined on 10/19/2012
  • "This is my new favorite place to go to when I'm shopping at the mall and want to get away from the busy foot traffic and just relax with some good food. I dined here solo this visit and enjoyed my favorite dish - the jidori chicken with yuzu kosho. Along with a bowl of rice and a bowl of miso soup it was so satisfying, I can't wait to go back and have the same meal all over again. Also I'm glad that my server noted that the chicken would be about a half hour wait. I had time to spare and I was craving it so I was willing to wait for it. If I had a dining companion I would have also ordered a serving of shrimp tempura, another tried and true dish from this restaurant, it would have been too much food to order it for myself."

  • "Absolutely the best, authentic, Japanese food using premium ingredients. If you want authentic upscale Japanese food, this is it."

  • "I was here for dinner twice this week. Great location next to Sephora at Ala Moana shopping center. Love their shrimp tempura and tofu salad."
    Dined on 4/13/2012
  • "I have never been disappointed here. Unfortunately they were out of uni and when we ordered the salmon sashimi they only had enough for a half order (3 slices) but it was of a very high quality. The tofu salad wth three giant mounds of soft tofu in a light dessing and bubu arare is a dish I will return to again and again and the shrimp tempura is also done exceptionally well - nice and crisp, so sweet and tender cooked to perfection, better than most restaurants offering this item. Thevrestaurant is a nice quiet space away from the ustle and bustle of the traffic at the mall."

  • "Delicious authentic Japanese cuisine, but small portions for the amount paid. Highly recommend the butterfish and udon!"
    Dined on 4/7/2012
  • "Lunch was special, like duck udon. Dinner was great, not as special as lunch. Food is highly recommended. I also loved the ambiance, the unique design of the dishware. Very interesting place."
    Dined on 3/6/2012
  • "Food continues to be excellent. Decor perfect. This is our fifth visit and expect our last. Service has been slow and inattentive. We waited 30 minutes before offered a drink. For dinner, we suggested our server bring us some of the special of the house. We had placed an order for two starters. Nearly 40 minutes later, we found out there was no entree orders placed. Maybe there is a language issue. Food is good but sadly the service does not live up to the standards expected."
