Food was a bit salty. Good for large groups (we were 10). Food was a bit salty. Chanko Nabe was the better deal to have more variety of food. Overall the experience was average, not sure I would revisit.

The quality of the food was excellent. We had a large group and appreciated having a semi private room to celebrate the occasion. Highly recommended for small or large groups.

Been here once before and had the chanko nabe. This time I had the same thing but we added the seafood pancake. Seems like the portions were much better than the first time I went over a year ago. We were full when we left, which I couldn't say the first time I visited. Food was tasty and service was good.

Our party of 8 was accommodated for 1700 at 1000 that am. We got a side room for 10 which was intimate, not that the restaurant was noisy...i think we were noisier! Great specials, food was good quality. I wish they had more drink selections, the only thing I didn't like...we'll be gong again!

My kids are big fans of self-serve shabu shabu, so I wasn’t sure how they’d like the nabe experience. I shouldn’t have worried – they loved it. My daughter particularly liked the spicy miso broth and I thought pay extra for paitan broth was well worth it.

The price is great and the servers are attentive.

We’ll be back again.

Overall the food was good for the price. I would recommend it to people who visit Hawaii and are looking for something different. The service was decent. Our server would not really check up on us and we would have to go find them from time to time.

Our family has dined here 3 times and we've always left happy and satisfied. Make early reservations if you want to easily find parking. Chanko Nabe for $19.95/person? For the amount of food you get it's a deal.

For the price you can't go wrong. Their competitors may have many varieties but it is expensive. Happy hour prices are also really good. Maitre'd was awesome. She was very professional and helpful.

Food was pretty good. But we had a live 6 legged friend on our table. They apologized saying they just sprayed that day (how would that make it better?) & gave us a couple free drinks and deserts. But that was pretty surprising & disappointing.

Nothing for your birthday either, although I saw that in comments on yelp previously so I wasn’t expecting anything.

Not sure if she’s the manager but is usually there as the Hostess - always friendly and greets everyone even when the restaurant is extremely busy. The selection of meat is very good although we tend to always order the Choice Ribeye - very delicious and portion-wise very good. Very generous vegetable bowl and broths are very tasty. Overall great place for friends and family as well as large group get-together.

Reservations were very easy with Open Table and hostess very welcoming. Our server was relatively new and didn't explain the sauces and condiments until we asked. Food portions were adequate but they give you too much wonbok. There were no shiitake mushrooms or corn as shown in one of their advertisements. The udon came frozen. The inside of the restaurant is very nice with soft lighting and areas that can be partitioned off for larger parties. The staff were cleaning up after a large party left but the screech from chairs being dragged was annoying.
