Here at ZIGU, we believe the key to running a successful restaurant is to serve fresh local ingredients. We cook in a Japanese style using only ingredients found here in Hawaii. We will soon be opening our doors to customers. You'll enjoy authentic Japanese cooking and sake either inside our cozy interior or outside our spacious courtyard terrace.

カジュアルな創作和食な雰囲気で料理も美味しかったです!!
気になったのは、テーブルが小さくて料理が置ききれず、もう少し大きめのテーブルだったら、焦って食べるとかにならなかったと思います。

Great menu, happy hour has some very nice offerings at good prices, tasty good, nice service. Only complaint is the patio setting is lousy- like being in a shabby shed. We were seated behind a door held open by a hollow tile that was dangerously positioned for people walking by. The outdoor decor could use improvement. Otherwise, I would recommend people cone here for the food and service. Really nice dishes.

何度目かのリピートです。どれを食べても美味しくて量もちょうど良い感じなので、何品かをオーダー出来て楽しいです。
スタッフの方も元気が良くて親切ですし、料理が出るまでが早いのがなにより嬉しい。オススメしたいお店です。

great food, cocktails and vibe. we were seated right away and enjoyed all of the small plates we shared. Service was adequate but food took a very long time so don’t go if you’re on a tight schedule. Server seemed overworked. Took a solid 40 min from seating till our first round of bites came out. worth it, but wouldn’t mind if they sped up a bit.

Lisa truly made it a one of a kind experience!!!! She had just the right amount of attentiveness so that we never felt neglected -even though we had the back room to ourselves. She was so sweet & lovely - down to making sure my husband had enough rice the entire time and carving out the rest of the meat on the tuna cheek/collar for us since we missed some, to making sure everything I ate was safe for pregnancy. She made it so special for my parents who were visiting from the mainland and wanted them to try unique dishes as well for the experience. I am so happy we went there to celebrate my dad’s birthday, it was so special!

The same goes for the entire staff, the moment you walk into the restaurant you feel welcomed and taken care of because everyone on staff yells aloha!

I have visited ZIGU with my wife last Sunday. Most aof all, the taste of food I ordered was very nice and the price was reasonable. Also, they supply comfortable atmosphere. I think this restaurant in Hawai better than any special restaurant in Tokyo.

支払い時クレジットで支払いましたが、会計の間違いだったのかクレジットが二回きられていました。しかし何の説明もないまま帰り、クレジットの詳細には二回になっていたため、海外での利用ということもあり不安になりました。説明くらいはしてほしかったです。食事が美味しかっただけにとても残念な気持ちになりました。

Emil様 この度はご来店誠にありがとうございます。 またこの度はせっかくのハワイでのお食事の最後で気分を害してしまいまして大変申し訳ございませんでした。 Emil様が仰る通り、誤った金額でカードをスワイプし、その後その会計を1度取り消しし、 改めて正しい金額でスワイプした結果、一時的に明細に2つの会計情報が出てしまった結果でございます。 通常その取消伝票とともにお客様に必ずその旨を伝えるようにスタッフに指導しておりますが、改めて2度とこのようなことが起こらないよう再度徹底させていただきます。 貴重なフィードバック誠にありがとうございました。

Very innovative Hawaiian-inspired seasonal Japanese food! The service was friendly and the atmosphere was comfortable. Had the watercress and tofu salad, macademian nuts and sauteed burdock, bonito sashimi with Hawaiian onion, the tuna poke roll, and the pork-belly udon. The bonito sashimi was awesome, the pork-belly udon was under-whelming, the rest were very good. It was a good experience and I'd recommend it.

The food is delicious and service excellent. It is a little pricey for what you get. For me it’s a place for a special occasion not everyday dining.

早くから予約していても毎回変な席に案内されます。中の二人席やカウンターが空いているのに、雨が降った後の濡れた外の席に案内された時はびっくりしました。美味しいので、人気もあり、いつも賑やかで活気があり、忙しいのはわかるが、サービスは開店時より雑になってきている気がしました。

Great food. Innovative Japanese style. Don’t miss out on the Gobo appetizer.

Vegetarian roll as fabulous as one of the fish rolls.

One thing missing: GLUTEN FREE SOY SAUCE

Food was amazing as it always was, drinks that was ordered came after the meal so we all ended up chugging our drinks after our meal which was not ideal, but the food was so yummy and made up for that.

Lunch specials were special priced and the set included a soup and extras which was really nice.

We were seated promptly and our order taken in a timely manner. Our server informed us that the kitchen was backed up which we appreciated and were fine with.
The udon noodles were chewy and delicious. The watercress salad outstanding although it could’ve used more tofu.

We are not satisfied your service. Because your staff could not take care for their own job.(probably too busy)
You should improve service to all customers.
