    I had an excellent birthday dinner. David our server was the best! He was very personable and was the best taking photos with his extra ring light and gave us a super cool bday candle with ice cream! Zigu is one of our fav places - fresh fish, delicious food, local ingredients! Can’t wait to come back! Thank you for making my birthday so special!

    Food was pretty good, though overpriced. Service was terrible, we were ignored on multiple occasions, not asked about refills/new drinks. When finishing paying, the server skipped the feedback step on the payment device. Would definitely go to other options nearby first.

    We loved our experience here. All staff was friendly and efficient. Our server was always there when we needed her. I ordered an amazing Pina Colada 5/5-ingredients were so fresh and well-balanced and hubby loved his Toki Hi Ball 5/5 which was also perfectly crafted. Food: Local Farm Potato Salad 5/5-very unique and delicious, Mochiko fried chicken 5/5-cooked just right, meat juicy and dip was the star of the dish, Local vegeetable chilled Moringa noodle 5/5-another unique dish that took us somewhere else we haven't been to; veggies were out of this world fresh. Hubby also ordered nigiri which he said was very good 4/5. We'll be back in Honolulu in January and we'll definitely coming back here.

    As always it was a wonderful meal. Everything is top notch with amazing flavor and cooking techniques. My only critique is the watercress salad. I am not a giraffe, please cut the watercress accordingly to a human sized mouth. Sorry to be petty but it’s an oversized awkward experience. Again this restaurant is 5 stars all day. Little hidden gem in Waikiki with a great happy hour. Most places in Waikiki don’t serve good food because why bother, plenty of tourists to come tomorrow. Really really really do come here and support their amazing food. My wife is Japanese and also gives it two thumbs up.

    ハワイ旅行最後の夜を惜しみつつ、誕生日祝いを兼ねて訪れました。 創作和食ですね。ちょうど沖縄フェアをやっていて、ラフテーがとても美味しかったです。握り寿司もウニ、中トロ、カンパチを頼みましたが、レベルは普通。カンパチが一番コストパフォーマンスが良いかと思います。全体的に美味しかったのですが、モズクと紅芋の天ぷらは油っこくて全部食べられませんでした。 サービスに関しては日本人スタッフが多くて全て日本語で大丈夫だし、とてもフレンドリーで良かったです。最後にバースデープレートが花火と共に現れてびっくり‼️楽しい演出でした。 手頃な価格で日本食を食べたくなったらまた訪れたいと思います。
