    Great experience at zigu for the first time. We went to experience the Okinawan fair menu, but we were sad that the mozu seaweed tempura was out! That was the dish we were looking forward to trying. The other Okinawan dishes were great and the sashimi platter and drinks also.

    We've been searching for a nice Vegan restaurant in Waikiki and I think we found one in Zigu. The menu has a wide selection of Vegan friendly dishes (our favorite was the Watercress & Tofu salad which used such fresh ingredients that the crunchiness of the watercress with the smooth, silky tofu complimented with a flavorful salad dressing was one of the best dishes all night). The Haupia dessert was to die for! A big thanks to David, our waiter who made it a point to make our evening memorable. Aloha and Mahalo to Zigu!

    Excellent sashimi and sushi. Great fried chicken, watercress and tofu salad, pickled onions. Tempura was well fried if not amazing. My husband reallyliked the pork with ginger and rice noodles. (My son and I weren’t fans, but that makes horse races.) Good wine by the glass selections. Cocktails were kind of meh, and the recommended sakes sweet for my taste. But those are minor quibbles. It’s a terrific restaurant. Go!

    The restaurant was nice and quaint for a small space in Waikiki. The outside seating area was nice but can be hot and sticky in the summer. The inside seating is air-conditioned but small and tight so not sure if that would be more enjoyable than the outside seating area. The food was excellent!! A mix between authentic Japanese cuisine with a Pacific rim twist. Very flavorful and not your typical ingredients. The sake flights were excellent as well offering some sweet and savory sake varieties. Our server David, provided outstanding service by recommending some popular dishes, offering some of his personal touches to the dishes we ordered, and gifted my wife with a special candle on her ice cream desert for an extra flare to the birthday surprise. Talk about going above and beyond. Thanks David for making her birthday extra special. They offer validated parking at the hotel next door but we luckily found street metered parking.

    This was my second time dining here and the service was like night and day. Our server was really inattentive, pretty much neglectful, and unfriendly. I had to ask for nearly everything (water, soy sauce, etc) and had to flag down random servers just to add to our order. Really disappointing. There are plenty of other restaurants out there with better food and service.

    Great location and a nice spot for a family meal. We had 5 adults for dinner, and had a great time. I don't think the website does a great job of communicating that this is a small plate format, but our server was quick to point it out. The menu is a nice balance of sushi and Japanese style dishes. Portion sizes were good, and food arrived quickly. It would be great if they had more sushi offerings.
