    Got there at 5pm and was served promptly. Server Mitch was very attentive and friendly. The shoyu pork was tough and needed a more time to soften and cook. Maybe we were the first ones so didn't time to get tender? The meat from the oxtail soup didn't fall off the bone and had pieces that didn't come off easy like it should. Needed more flavor in the broth which was bland and not like the old one. The pork chops were decent but nothing outstanding like some other places Had high hopes for Asahi Grill's new location and hope they clean up the shortcomings so we can go back again. Want to try some of the other local dishes when they improve on the menu

    We’ve been to Asahi Grill on Waianae Avenue about six times in the past 2 months and enjoy the food and service very much. Highly recommend it for both family and friends.

    We enjoyed our dining experience at Asahi Grill so much last weekend we came again. The food, wait help and service were excellent again. And the banana lumpia was delicious! Highly recommended for excellent local food at reasonable prices.

    Wait help (2 young men) were very pleasant and helpful. There were four of us and we requested 3 separate checks for which they were very accommodating. The food was delicious! Two of us ordered the oxtail soup. One had shrimp tempura and the fourth person had stir fried veggies. All dishes were tasty. The crowning touch was the banana lumpia served with vanilla ice cream. It was “broke the mouth!” I definitely recommend this casual, friendly restaurant.

    The chicken katsu curry was outstanding. I wasn't expecting much, having had it at other places where it wasn't very good. At AG, it was crispy and not sweet, reminding me of how it used to be made. Also, the wait help was friendly and attentive. My friend and I were spoiled by them.

    When Asahi Grill closed at its former Keeaumoku location, we were afraid that another local eatery had been lost to the pandemic. Good news — Asahi Grill is back and it is better than ever! Same great oxtail soup, tasty local dishes, and even more parking (adjacent to the restaurant). Service was friendly and efficient. In short, still a winner!

    I was so glad when this location opened up near our home. But on the night we visited, the staff was overwhelmed and service was very bad. Lots of people were waiting to be seated, even those who made reservations. Once guests were seated, no menus, water or greeting for at least 10 minutes. The table next to us waited 15 minutes just to order their drinks, which didn’t come until halfway through their meal. A big party was asked to stand up and carry their drinks and silverware to a private room to free up smaller tables for other guests. Food came out one by one so everyone started and ended eating at different times. We will not come back to this location. It was chaos. We’d rather drive a little further to the Ward location, where the service and food are better.

    New location so not busy (good for us, not for the restaurant). Classic local diner menu. Oxtail soup was solid. Steak stir fry was good but rice was partially hard and dry.
