Binchotan: Bar & Grill is a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy a fresh take on Asian cuisine. Our menu features the time-honored tradition of grilling meat, seafood and produce over an open flame. Shared plates, handcrafted sushi and grilled skewers are the hallmarks of this culinary experience. Our full service bar showcases artisan cocktails, premium sake and a vast collection of whiskey. We invite diners to indulge in a flavorful feast as they raise a glass of Muay Tai to toast the most glorious sunsets over the Kohala Coast!

    The service was good, but the food was nothing special. It's a clean, ritzy atmosphere for people who don't know what excellent food is at a restaurant. House wines are mediocre. I won't go back.

    We had a large family gathering, so it was wonderful to have a big table with plenty of room for all the food we tried. The food was very good. and the service was exceptional.

    We ordered all 3 desserts and they were all not good. Chocolate brownie cake with ice cream the chocolate was gelatinous and not good. Japanese cheesecake dry, matcha cake was dry and we didn’t finish half of it. Needs a new pastry chef. Main meal was good except the ramen which had a funny smell and our kids couldn’t eat it after a $30 cost. We stayed at the hotel all week and this was the only meal we had there and glad we ate elsewhere.
