    Wonderful first time experience! Food, service, ambience totally worth the price. We suggest putting in most of your order first as skewers are prepared in batches so they are served gradually as they are grilled. Enjoy Ed every dish ordered. Look forward to trying other dishes next time. Our favorites were foie gras and GyuuTan.

    Not the place to stop for a quick bit or for a solid meal. While the flavor was delicious on the food, the size was not was not expected. But if you are looking for a place to chill and chat with friends and just munch on something, this might be the place for you

    Wow, the BEST yakitori I’ve ever had! We’ve been to many places in CA and Japan, and this was surprisingly sooo amazing!! Meats were very tender and so juicy. Service as usual in Hawaii is phenomenal, everyone is always so nice. Highly recommend coming here!

    Unless you're familiar with the cuisine, do a little research on the menu beforehand. The menu has a lot of organ meat which is fine - you can see that on the menu - but not understanding preparation led to some interesting surprises. You can see food on menu and then food is in case in front of you, but you still have no idea what's what. For example, I'm good with beef tongue which I've always had sliced; this was served in large chunks that were somewhat off putting. It's a texture thing which is certainly personal. Flavors were nice, but I had no idea on half of what I was eating and the server, while very nice and friendly, wasn't very helpful. I'll take credit here for not being familiar with the cuisine, so I would try it again and order differently because others had food that looked really good!

    The food was awesome! So yummy!! We left stuffed!! Service was great! Tables were close together so unfortunate you could hear the conversation of the table next to you. But overall one of the best new restaurants I’ve tried in the past few years! We will definitely be back and maybe will bring some friends with us 😊

    Loved the old Honolulu Chinatown vibe of the restaurant. We prefer sitting at the counter to watch the grilling - so appreciate the ability to book preference. We loved all of the traditional yakitori - great grilled flavor. Fun dining for a different cultural experience!

    The service was exceptional and all of the foods we tried were good. It was definitely an experience we're glad we tried. Our only warning would be that portions - though lovely - are extremely small. We enjoyed the experience, then we paid our large tab and stopped for cheeseburgers on the way home.

    Great place for Yakitori! Service was great and the food was delicious! The manager Robert was such a nice person. Came and talked story with us about the restaurant and the food. The dishes looked small, but by the end of our dinner we were full! If you want to try a little of everything, go with the Omekase dinner, you won’t be disappointed!
