    Loved it so much! Food was delicious, chef and his two helpers (I didn’t catch their names) were attentive, friendly and made sure to speak to everyone at the table. We absolutely loved the dining experience. I lost track of the number of courses but each was as amazing as the next and only managed to take a handful of pictures.

    A modern Omakase experience. Very personal and very professional. Chef Aung provides an experience that is unique and makes you feel more than just a customer. He keeps you involved with what he is creating for you and loves to hear your feedback. Your palate doesn’t need to be well versed in sushi either, chef Aung is able to make simple cuts of fish taste exquisite. Give this place a try. Come with booze and have a great time.

    Chef Aung was personable and made great nigiri. Each piece of fish was so fresh, delicately cute and prepared. Loved the intimate vibe of the counter seating as well. Also BYOB and they have all the various glasses for your drink of choice. Will come back each time we visit.

    We really enjoyed the Omakase experience with Aung. My husband is allergic to shellfish and we didn’t mention that prior to coming to the restaurant but Aung still accommodated us and offered a very artistic and fresh chef selection. I tried many unique things that I’ve never had before. It’s a must have experience

    Outrageous. I made a reservation on OpenTable a week in advance or so. When I arrived at 530 pm (byob sake on ice in hand), the place was closed. The restaurant voicemail referred me to a text number; I left a text and shortly after two women came to the door with the owner/manager on their speakerphone to tell me it was closed and “he had tried to contact me.” I asked how; he said text; I asked what number; he had my cell correct; I noted I had received no text; he said he had tried “for 3 days”; I said that was obviously a lie. Then the women blamed opentable for the failure. I contacted opentable. They apologized and said they would follow up with the restaurant. Now, 3 days later, opentable is asking me, “how was your experience?” !!! I had Hanale by Islander Sake omakase the night before and it was exquisite. I guess in the future I’ll be going there and avoiding Aung. You should too.

    My boyfriend and I are big omakase people and when we stumbled on this place when planning our Oahu vacay, we had to include this in our itinerary as the last dinner of the trip! It was an amazing experience! And it was BYOB, which makes this place even more unique. The fish was extremely fresh and tasty! Will definitely come back when coming back to Oahu!

    Delicious with many fresh ingredients flown in from Japan. Aung is an interesting, engaging, entertaining guy with a fascinating story. The small seating size keeps the experience intimate. It's BYOB so bring your own poison -- and enough to share with Aung, the staff, and all your fellow diners.

    Chef Aung was amazing! He was very friendly and really interacted with everyone. The waitress was very friendly as well! It felt like everyone knew each other with great music blasting in the background. This is definitely a different experience but loved it very much. I would recommend this spot for a date night where you want to interact with the chef in a social and not so serious way or even with a group of friends. Each piece of sushi melted in your mouth and the choice of the fish was great. 10/10 would highly recommend!

    For $135.00, I expected a Nobu quality feast. Used caviar on a few dishes. Very unnecessary. Japanese sushi, use Japanese ingredients. His dishes was nothing fancy to justify spendingc$135.00. What should he have presented? Fancy raw oysters. May be smoke the oysters with the Breville. Fancy abalone, Get rid of the costly caviar. No soup. Get a salad in there with avocado crab meat. He does not stand out. Walk in, look around. Looks like it's temporary operation. No signage Would I go back again? No

    A great Omakase meal! Chef went above and beyond. Each course was exceptional. There were three courses that featured Uni. The Uni rice with caviar was worth the price of the meal. It is BYOB but the chef had a large bottle of Saki that he shared with all of us. We were the only non Asians in the small (12 seat) dining room. We have had Omakase all over the world and this is by far the best we ever had at a most reasonable price. Will be back the next time we are in Honolulu.

    Just ok. The sushi and experience was ok except for the unagi, the rice literally fell apart. I have never had sushi rice fall apart at any omakase. Wagyu on the menu but not available -charged the same price though. Dissapointed from reading all the excellent reviews. Never been rushed out of a omakase before with the chef turning down the lights and blasting music. I've been to quite a few omakase experiences in Honolulu. I don't get the hype. Far better choices elsewhere.
