What is Okonomiyaki?

Okonomiyaki is basically a “pancake” consisting of flour, egg, cabbage and mountain yams, with ingredients which you can choose off our menu. Once cooked the okonomiyaki is topped off with okonomiyaki sauce, a Japanese version of plum sauce, a mayonnaise sauce, seaweed powder and dried bonito flakes.

Okonomiyaki Chibo opened in Hawaii in 1990. Chibo is part of a popular chain in Japan with over 60 locations. Recently locations have been opened in Hanoi, Bangkok and Manila. We specialize in Okonomiyaki and Teppanyaki.

日本ではお好み焼きのチェーンというイメージが強いですが、ホノルル店の鉄板焼きは絶品で、ハワイに来たら必ず立ち寄ります。ガーリックシュリンプやフィレステーキが非常に美味しいです。席が狭く椅子が硬いのがやや難点。

I think 30$ for an okonomiyaki is a bit expensive till I realized see my wife and I split only one and took the other home. They are rather thick so if you're not starving then just split it and add the garlic rice.

Nice to sit at the teppanyaki bar and watch the skilled chef at work. It’s not a show here, just skill. Lovely food of highest quality.

Delicious food but overpriced. Everything was super small portions and meal cost was high for this place. We had to sit outside because their AC was broken and with the hot grills they used only made the place extremely hot.

For the prices, the okonomiyaki was not worth it. It was $24 for a pork and cheese okonomiyaki that was the size of a medium plate. It was thick and kinda doughy in the middle. Maybe my expectations were too high since I’ve lived in Japan and ate okonomiyaki before. The service was good but I will not be going here again.

Quiet on arrival at 7pm but that meant we had time to chat with the chef, who was good at engaging in conversation but also leaving us to ourselves. We sat at the teppan table so could see him at work. By the time we left the restaurant had filled up. Food was delicious.

We appreciated this teppanyaki restaurant so much because we were not looking to be entertained like other teppanyaki establishments. The chef was given the ingredients to our order, he cooked it, asked how we wanted our dishes topped off, served us, and done. The waiters checked on us a good amount of times to ensure we were served well. The price is higher than I had hoped, but I would still come back to pay for the quality AND the service.

The restaurant is about 1/5th the size of the original location. While dining there a majority of the time staff was vacuuming off the floor some liquid coming from the womens restroom. This was in the dining area. The womens restroom was closed down forcing thr women to use the mens room. We sat close to the reatroom door. Very unpleasant.

The food was great, no, i meant excellent. We ordered two different "dining for two" (which fed four of us) sets which is highly recommended. Steak cubes were very tasty and tender.

A past favorite at their prior location at the royal hawaiian shopping center, this new location will probably not be visited by us again until they relocate.

Very disappointed with their signature "okonomiyaki" -- for those who enjoy the Hiroshima version, this pancake was lacking in ingredients and too much dough. For the price I paid, it was very small. Will not return.

Went for my boyfriend’s 24th birthday, and the service we received was AMAZINGGGGG. The staff was very attentive and friendly. My boyfriend and I was just talking stories with our chef and waiters as if they were long time friends of ours. Definitely coming back because of the flawless service.

This place is a tourist trap. $9 for 6 pieces of "gyoza." It's disrespectful to even call it gyoza. It was just folded dumpling wrap with a tiny scrap of filling. Might as well go to Costco to get the frozen gyoza that comes with a lot more and tastes better and has actual filling.

The okonomiyaki was overpriced for the size. $23 for their one okonomiyaki can get me 5 okonomiyakis in Japan.

The chef was nice and I don't blame him for the food since he just cooks it. Whoever made this menu is just trying to fool all the tourists and should be ashamed of themselves. Please reevaluate this establishment.
