    行った日はお客さんが多くてかなりにぎやかでした。日本人が多かったような気がします。 日本の居酒屋の雰囲気そのままです。レギュラーメニューとは別に本日のおすすめメニューがありました。

    Fantastic off-the-beaten-path gem. We ordered a bunch of dishes - gyoza, beef and veggies, sesame ramen, pork katsudon - and all were delicious. Service is on the slower side but they cook each dish to order I believe and the staff was lovely. Worth every minute and dollar (very reasonably priced!)

    Cute place. Used to be pretty divy area but the building next door is coming down. If they have to relocate I hope they can find a great place. Ohana kine place with good food and prices. Authentic funky alley, a bit like you'd find in Tokyo. Sake prices great too. Kitchen looks very clean. Big menu. Good Saba Good job guys!

    I really enjoyed this place. Some interesting izakaya dishes. Every was good to great! Had a great vibe and was a great evening. I would definitely recommend this place if looking for a very casual, japanese restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

    日本語で注文できるので安心でした。 どのメニューもハワイにしてはリーズナブルで、味も美味しかったです。 次もまた利用したいと思います! ただ日本の団体のお客さんが大声を出してうるさく、気になりました。 店員さんに注意されてもうるさくしていたので、同じ日本人として恥ずかしくなりました。

    Food is always good here but when they do get busy it does take time to get your order or you'll have to flag a server for assistance. Other than a slow staff it's a cozy little hole in the wall to dine at and it has a nice charm to the izakaya spot.

    テレビで知って見て行きました。 場所は入り口が奥まってて、分かりにくいかも。 日本人スタッフが居るから安心です。 料理の量は少ない目かな。味は普通。牛タンのたたきは少し硬目で期待した程ではなかった。 店内が忙しかったせいか、チップのやり取りが無く、店員から18%にさせてもらいましたと告げられた。一気に残念

    The food and the ambiance here is great. It really does feel like a hidden gem. This restaurant is tucked away in Waikiki behind a couple of buildings and reminds me of an izakaya in Japan. If I lived nearby, I'd visit way more often. For the price and what it is (an izakaya), I'd give this place a full 5 stars... The only thing keeping me from doing so is that the bathroom is located in the dive bar upstairs. Aside from that minor inconvenience, this place is fantastic.

    So much fun. The food was spot on! Best Agedashi I’ve had in my life and the gyoza probably was too. Topping the night off with candy floss was so much fun! No instruction on it though and saw a guy at another table shot the sugar he was given.

    The place can be difficult to fine. It is hidden in an alley. Do not why a gratitude of 15% was automatically added to the bill. We only have 3 in the party. Not a big group by any standard.

    Tasty, homey comfort Japanese/Korean food. A wide variety of choices at very reasonable prices - most plates or bowls are $10 or less. Our dinner was delicious and portions were satisfying. Beer and wine also served at reasonable prices too. Highly recommend the okonomiyaki (Japanese frittata). The icing on the cake was a complementary cotton candy which you get to make yourself. It was fun!
