I rather have quality over
quantity. This is why I love Ushio-tei's buffet, the quality is way better than someplace like makino chaya. The price is higher but you get top quality food. If you don't mind paying a little higher, the buffet is well worth it. The selection maybe limited but quality makes up for it!"

Went here for Xmas dinner buffet
with family and the food was great! I've been here a couple times before and the buffet has definitely improved. They added more items and the food was of great quality which is unexpected for most buffets. The service was attentive and polite. The only 2 improvements I would suggest is to 1) move the dessert section to another area as it was very cramped in the corner and it was also mixed with the rest of the main courses so it was difficult to find and you felt like you were interfering with others getting their meal, 2) the dessert selection wasn't very big and they could've offered more items for the price."

THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. HOWEVER;
THE SELECTION OF FOOD, THE LACK OF PROMPT SERVICE, THE DINING LAYOUT, AND THE $60 PRICE PERSON FOR THEIR CHRISTMAS BUFFET WAS NOT WORTH IT."

Large groups (8+) were dining
there with kids, not what one would want for a romantic evening with kids screaming and shouting. Buffet was not bad but neither good, sushi was ok and the fish seemed fresh but sushi rice was overcooked and was not sticky at all. The rice on the sushi would fall apart weather or not you dipped it in soy sauce. Buffet did include appetizers and dessert which was a bonus but it was overpriced for ok food. Would not go there again there are certainly better sushi restaurants in Oahu. But if you have a group of kids go there the buffet seemed exactly what kids might want."

The food was all very tasty. The
area to get your food is small but considering the size of the restaurant it fit perfectly. The Japanese ingredients were all of good quality. I like it when the sushi rolls are the authentic Japanese nori. The chicken teriyaki and wagyu beef was excellent. Everything was fresh and delicious. I would definitely go back again, make sure you have a large appetite otherwise you will not get your money's worth. We ordered drinks and it was mixed perfectly."

I've eaten at a lot of different
establishments over the years, as a huge fan of sushi i was very excited when i heard this place was attached to our hotel. Then i saw the menu... not a whole lot of anything to be excited about. The sushi that i ate was good, the rest of the menu was lack-luster at best. For the money spent I feel like i should have gotten more..."

Tall thin husband's legs fell
asleep sitting in those low child size seats. Would have been better to sit on the floor or have seating option."

We went for the buffet. The buffet
is not big but they have a nice select I onwettig a variety of rolls, no sushi or sashimi, great steak teriyaki and miso salmon, tasty seaweed salad and wonderful ahi poke. They had a nice selection of deserts and a great sake selection. Too bad they do not always offer the buffet or we would have gone back again another day."

We ate the buffet... For the only
japanese restaurant in the hotel one would imagine a huge difference in service perhaps ambiance, the food was fair at best and the desserts looked bought not hand made... I have yet to find that authentic feel in any local japanese restaurant."

I went to the buffet, which I
thought was pretty good value overall. But I didn't really like the sushi that much. It wasn't bad, just not great. I find better sushi back home. I did really like the teriyaki steak. It was cooked perfectly. The service was very good--friendly and attentive. So it's a nice dinner out, but as long as you're okay spending $40-50/person."

After reading reviews, we decided
to try the Friday night buffet even though I will generally avoid buffets. I was very pleasantly surprised by the outstanding quality of the sushi as well as the other options, including great teriaki chicken, and other delicious items. Our outside table was very nice too- the experience was so good that we are returning again tonight and no doubt will make this a regular stop for all our future trips to Ko Olina"

This is a nice little Japanese
Restaurant at the Ihilani Hotel in Ko'Olina. They have a buffet 3 nights a week at a price of about $43 per adult. We first experienced this restaurant while on vacation in February of 2013 and it was fabulous. We ended up eating there 4 times over the course of a week and a half. We just recently visited the restaurant again this August and the food was not as fresh. They offer quite a bit of variety on their buffet, but the lettuce was wilted for salads, the miso was not very good, the tempura not so hot either. It was good, but not great. I can, however, highly recommend the Yellowtail sashimi appetizer with truffle oil and black salt, OMG ... so delicious!"

We found the buffet was good, not
great. However, I did find the chicken teriyaki and miso salmon was quite good. The sushi was limited but fresh. The dessert was only okay. However, we had a very attentive and great server."

The buffet was delicious for the
price. Lots of food. I will be back again if we have the chance. Hopefully the buffet is still offered since I heard that it is not always offered."

Ushio-tie has become an absolute
must whenever we visit Ko Olina (8 times & counting). The Friday buffet is the best with fresh sushi, delicious tempura, poke, salads, steak & sumptuous desserts. Great value, can always count on it. We splurged a little & ordered the local ahi sashimia la carte which was incredibly fresh & melted on the tongue. Worth every penny. The service was delightful, & we found a quiet spot at the sushi bar, away from the bustle & din of families with kids. Joel, the sushi chef was masterful & kept us entertained. A night to remember. Look forward to our return next year.f"

Great dining experience at a
reasonable price! We did not have the buffet, but the normal sit down dinner was very good."

I do not usually like buffet-style
dining, as the food tends to get cold and old. However, they put small portions out, so the buffet food is fresh ... and absolutely deliciious. We were also amazed that they are able to provide such good food and such variety for a relatively low price. The wait staff and bus staff was also excellent. Very courteous without being intrusive. A really pleasant dining experience."

Exceptional staff from Manager
Annette to server Song Hee culinary assistants Zedrick and Yosita. This is our favorite restaurant on the leeward side and it never disappoints. We are always welcomed like beloved family and enjoy every exquisite moment of delicious food, outstanding service, and beautiful ambiance. Mahalo Nui Loa, Ushio-Tei!"

We were on our honeymoon and
stayed at a townhouse at Ko Olina. Our waitress was the nicest, sweetest person. Her name was Jocelyn (I apologize if I spelled that wrong). We love the food and thank you so much again for assisting with my gluten issues!!! Next trip there, we will be back! Sarah"

Our group of nine enjoyed their
buffet offering. The hostess was very nice and seated us at the outside patio overlooking the Ihilani JW Marriot pool at the back of the hotel. The food was very good from the salad including Ahi Poke, teriyaki steak & chicken, and shrimp tempura. They also had Maki-Sushi which were delicious and most notably the Hawaii Rainbow Roll and Surfing Unagi Roll. My only criticism was the saltiness of the miso soup and the shrimp tempura which was my main reason of eating there. The desert was commendable with a rich chocolate cake and outstanding mixed fruit jello. Overall, although the amount of selection were fair, it was a great choice of buffet than the other more expensive buffet offered in the hotel."
