    We love this restaurant! But it is very hard to make a reservation. Yesterday we were lucky to get seats. May be somebody canceled on that day. Quality of food, service, so professional. We want to keep going back.

    Very sleek and upscale ambiance. The food is tasty, and presentations are beautiful. I don't think the flavors are anything different or new, just executed very well. Beautiful dinner spot. Again, you're paying for the whole experience. I do think you can eat food that tastes just as good at somewhere like yakitori glad, but the presentations and little details is why you come here. Great service. They do send a lot of confirmation texts and "remind" you of your reservation time with a minor threat that your reservation could get canceled if you are late. I get why, but it was a little overkill. Overall, good!

    Interesting menu and delicious food. It all comes on little skewers so shareable. A little pricey though. I ordered sake and they put a small glass in a little box and pour it to overflowing. You drink from the glass and then pour the sake from the box into your glass. I had a friend with me who is Japanese and she said some places in Japan do that too

    I was expecting outstanding everything based on the other reviews. In short, completely underwhelming, except for the great service and nice servers. Note: All the skewers are one (1) stick per serving. So, when you see the menu, it's $6 per stick. that's pricey. Worst of all. we were not impressed with the taste or how it was cooked. We tried seafood, pork, beef, veggies, etc. All meh. Save your money. We had to go down the street to another restaurant to finish dinner.

    Our family absolutely LOVE it! Our waiter, Robert, the owner told us great stories and where all the food came from because it was locally sourced! Food was amazing and all his recommendation were a crowd favorite with our family. Our party had 2 seniors, 2 adults and 2 children. The staff were friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!

    Amazing!!! So wonderful. The place was recommended by the bartender at Fete which is two doors down. Couldn’t have been happier with the service team, the ambience and the incredible food. We did the Chef’s Special Omakase Course, which was a great way to try many different things. Definitely recommend.

    I love hachibei. It is one of my must go restaurants when I visit Oahu every time. Staff are very attentive and friendly! They will offer the best suggestions. Pretty much everything on the menu is a must try. I personally love the sukiyaki skewer and definitely ask about their off menu items when you’re there

    We went with 5 people. Food came out as it was done so there wasn’t a moment where we didn’t have any food on the table. Some of the dishes that were our highlights: Appetizers: tofu cream cheese with crackers, shishito peppers, Eggplant miso dengaku. Yakitori: tsukune, sukiyaki. Drink: mint lemon honey chuhai. Overall it was great to be able to take friends to a new Japanese experience.

    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.
