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. "

Very good food, service was also
very good. We were impressed with the quality of the food."

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."

This is one of my "go to" places
when I need solid quality, delicious Japanese food."

Rokkaku Ala Moana was absolutely
fantastic in every way. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food and service were exceptional. Mike P"

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."
Dined on 2/8/2014
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!"
Dined on 12/3/2013
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."
Dined on 10/19/2013
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!"

Great authentic Japanese food.
Excellent price for the quality. Nice quiet place to dine. Highly recommended!"

tofu salad, shrimp tempura, miso
soup, jidori chicken with yuzu kosho, rice = satisfying meal, all high quality ingredients, one of the best places to dine at Ala Moana Shopping Center"

It had a great ambience,

Very expensive, smallish portions
and not very tasty"

Food outstanding, especially the
tongue in curry sauce. Tongue just melts in your mouth."

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."
Dined on 2/15/2013
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."
Dined on 1/19/2013
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 1/6/2013
order the jidori chicken with yuzu
kosho or the shrimp tempura or the tofu salad and you won't be disappointed."

Serene setting with excellent,
authentic Japanese food hidden in the hubub of Ala Moana."
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."
Dined on 9/5/2012
Absolutely the best, authentic,
Japanese food using premium ingredients. If you want authentic upscale Japanese food, this is it."
Dined on 6/16/2012
Excellent Japanese cuisine, but
not ideal for children! I will visit again without the kiddies."
Dined on 5/20/2012
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."
Dined on 4/9/2012
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."
Dined on 2/18/2012
Good Food. Expensive. 2 of 3 wait
Dined on 2/14/2012
The Food was amazing here,
everything came out relatively fast. ambiance is very relaxing and nice. Service was lacking a bit, as it took us over 5 tries to get the waitress to add more items to our menu."
