Father in laws birthday
Our hostess, chef (Austin) and support staff were wonderful. My guest and I were stuffed. It was nice to have staff with such a great outlook and fun personality!!
Went on a Monday night so it wasn’t busy. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Our chef was very personable and entertaining. I would definitely go back.
Was greeted at the door by the hostesses and the manager, Hong. They quickly took my party’s information and we were promptly shown to our table. Chris was our server, very attentive to my needs and even made a note for Chef Austin regarding my allergies and dietary needs. I had the Steak and Chicken. My date had the lobster and filet. Everything tasted amazing! Chef Austin kept the conversation going and I loved his jokes! Bryson came by and made sure we enjoyed our experience and that everything tasted great. On our way out, we were invited to return and we will definitely return soon. Thank you to the staff for a great experience!
Everything was great from entry to exit. Chef was entertaining and staff were very attentive
Date night was a success! The food was great, friendly staff, we were seated before our reservation which was nice because we arrived early. A little pricy but worth it!
Joe was the most incredible chef we’ve ever seen! We had the best time ever and he made our night so special and certainly one we would never forget. It was unbelievable. Hilarious but professional and on top of the incredible show, everything he cooked tasted perfect and amazing. Thank you so much joe for the greatest birthday show for us! We’ll be coming back for you!
attentive/nice waitress and chef was great! Good food, good people.
Great service and atmosphere! No wait, food was brilliantly prepared right in front of you.. Amazing time with love ones. I try to make it there whenever I have family in town.
We made a reservation so bring seated was quite fast. The male waiter who took our order was precise, courteous and friendly. Our chef seemed to be a pro at cooking entertainment style and was funny. One thing that I wasn’t very impressed was the way they carry out the rice for the fried rice. As a Japanese, it made me cringe to see white rice spread on a plastic brown tray. It should be in a bowl.
Overall, service was great and we had a good time.
The food was excellent and the chef gave an awesome and hilarious cooking experience. We will be sure to visit again when we're back on Oahu.
Great service good food.
I had an amazing night thank you to the staff and the cook!!
Was a decent experience, just wasn’t what I expected coming from mainland. Most Japanese Steakhouses specialize in sushi as well. There was no sushi served here. No fault of the restaurant, but was less than I expected. The food was also somewhat bland, but was cooked perfectly. The house sauces came in handy. The service from the waitress was amazing. The room was smaller than I am used to but was still nice.
Great food and experience. Only thing when we sat down and ate our salad we didn’t see our cook until 30 minutes after
Awesome experience food and service was outstanding.
Always fun dining there!
Simply amazing all around. Awesome job!!!
Excellent food and service. I had filet and shrimp, cooked to perfection! My son OD’d on Wagyu beef, lobster and scallops. He ate it all! Scott was a great chef, very entertaining and Lisa made sure our glasses were never empty. Five star place for sure!!
It was as we expected as we have dined here before.
Awesome! Thank you for great food and fun with the family! Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Thank you!
Awesome cooking food show, the chef was entertaining and interactive. Food and service was great, can't wait to go back.
Had a wonderful experience!!! We had Lexus as our waitress and Austin as our chef. Lexus was amazing and very attentive with filling our glasses with water. That is a quality I look for any time I dine in a restaurant because I am always drinking my water. Austin was great as well and loved his humor. Thank you for making our night a great one!
Good Teppanyaki with the great showmanship you want at the tableside grill!
Dinner was very entertaining. Christian cooked my ribeye perfectly. It was the tastiest steak compared to the fillet and sirloin. I highly suggest. Lisa gave great service. Kevin the manager checked on us multiple times. Excellent customer service from all. Thank you!
The experience was fantastic, it was me and my mother's first time at Tanaka. Austin who was our chef was energetic, funny, and easy to speak to. The food was cooked perfectly to taste, not too salty or too bland also the cocktails were super delicious. Not much I can complain about, the lighting felt a bit dark but it was fine.
Great food! My daughter had a fun birthday dinner!
This place feels like it's intended for parties and events. It's entertaining and energetic, and the wait staff provide great service. Food is good given that you're mostly paying for the entertainment. However, if you want a quiet, sophisticated dinner you should look elsewhere.
Amazing service, friendly wait staff and a fun chef! The food was delicious and the night was memorable. Thank you!
It was our anniversary and the wait staff at Tanaka made it more than special!!!!! They were pleasant from beginning to end, engaging and very attentive. Wonderful experience!
Jayson was funny and a great host as well as great at multi tasking
We love coming here! Unfortunately this visit was very different from precovid days. We waited long after our meal was cooked for rice to come out. Also, our appetizers came out after our meal was cooked. Then we waited over 15 minutes for our desserts. Really was displeased with the service.
This is dinner and show environment. The steaks at either level sirloin, rib eye, and wagyu were awesome! Have the cold water lobster, it is worth the taste.
I hope you get "Chef Pono" he was funny and great personality!
Everytime I come I always leave satisfied. It’s such a great experience! I took my friends for their first time and they loved the “performance” the cooks put on. I love it here. The food is great and the staff is so conscious about what’s going on. I never waited long for anything, drinks, refills, taking the empty plates away. I dropped my chopstick and in less than 2 minutes I had one. I didn’t even have time to ask. 💖💕
Service was excellent! We dine there regularly, and the staff there are awesome!
Tanaka of Tokyo is a place we frequent often, especially for birthdays!
As always, the chef put out quite a wonderful experience and waitstaff as well as manager we’re splendid!!
Tables are beat up, food is bland and disappointing. Was looking forward to traditional teppanyaki but this is basic Americanized kitsch.
Excellent food and service as always! Bryson, Christian and Annabel were attentive, entertaining and made my son’s 16th bday extra special. Mahalo Nui Loa!
Friendly and efficient. Our chef was super nice and really funny. Yummy food.
Staff were very friendly.
