Gazen Izakaya Ratings and Reviews
Gazen has been a reliable go to restaurant when you have a taste for Japanese izakaya food. all the dishes we ordered were great, including the agedashi mocha, shiso wrapped ahi, hamachi takuan sushi roll, and the chicken over rice.
Happy hour drink prices were a plus (if you eat before 6:30).
Recomended by a friend. Have dined there twice. Even my 4 year old grand-daughter enjoyed everything especially the Tofu and desserts.
Very family friendly for those with youngsters.
The food is extraordinary. Going back again soon with neighbor island guests.

My favorite restaurant in Honolulu. Nice get away from the hubbub of Waikiki, but a short taxi ride. Extraordinary selection of delectable treats. Dont miss the tofu sampler and the 5 type of sashimi spread. Be ready to stretch and try some things and you wont be sorry.
The food was great but I think the staff forgot about us. We had to wait a long time between dishes and had to remind them many times about our orders. They had communication problems between staff. They charged us twice so we had to explain that we paid already.
I've liked Gazen in the past and still like it, which is why we returned there on Thursday to welcome a new member of our ohana. We enjoyed the happy hour specials and especially the tofu sampler, the beef tataki, the gobo, the Jpn omelette, and several other things. Service this time was exceptionally good.
we had the smaller room on the right which was OK except that the larger room on the end had a party which made it kinda noisy. The food was good and tasty and the fries were delicious; we had 4 kids and they enjoyed the food. We came at "happy hour" and the pitcher beer "hit the spot." It was the 2nd time for us and we enjoyed it.
The service was good and we have been here many times. Just a note to the management and staff, especially the one who smokes. Perhaps wash your hand after smoking before serving as our server smells like ashtray when she was serving us. other than that, we love and enjoy the food.
Dine here for the homemade tofu, but due to an issue with refrigerator, no tofu or all choices of dessert. Disappointment. invited out of towners for a local Japanese experience. (Armenians) Would recommend notification via open table reservations, so diners could decide if reservations should be rescheduled.
Had a good time at Gazen. The waiter made a mistake with our order, but offered to not only take it off the bill, but also replace it with the correct item. We were stuffed, so we appreciated the gesture, but passed as we didn't want to waste the food. My wife was a bit disappointed, as it is what she wanted, but I was really happy with the mistake.
Service was extremely fast... the food came out pretty quick. It was nice to get food for our kids as they can get fussy when waiting too long.
The beef tongue was a bit salty, but other than that, everything was spot on.
Would definitely come back.
Food was great. Sesame tofu , kampachi carpaccio, and agedashi mochi and the fried rice were excellent. Can;'t remember the rest of what we had but all were good.
One complaint was that the restaurant AC was on the blink and it was uncomfortably warm the whole time we were there. No apology from anyone! It was bearable with a tall cool draft beer:)
