    This is our 1st time back since pre covid. We did the AYCE. It was a total disappointment. Food quality is trouble. Sushi where mostly warm. No taste to the rice. There was more rice and a tiny bit of filling. The portion of udon and Ramen is about a 1/3 of a regular order. Chicken karaage was old that the meat was bright pink inside. Our server was very nice and attentive. Food did come quickly. So if you want to fill yourself up with rice this is the place to go. We will definitely not be returning to this restaurant.

    It was a good meal, but we expected more sushi options. Almost all rolls were tempura shrimp or crab mix based. We ate heartily, but it still felt a bit pricey. Service was helpful and attentive.

    I was optimistic when they began AYCE, but the rolls were 90% rice. The quality was low to make sure to get people full quickly.

    Had a great night at Shokudo. We wanted to try their AYCE and it's easy to get your money's worth. I love the signs and how informative the staff are about their rules and also parking. Although, we left satisfied and happy our car was broken into in the parking structure attached to the restaurant. After talking to the security guard and happens quite often. Not sure if we'll be back for a while, but I highly recommend parking somewhere else.

    The menu is not the same as the old location. Sushi has very little filling and the rice was dry. The rest of the food was just ok. The music is way too loud so you have to practically shout to have a conversation. Would not recommend.

    Pictures of the interior on Google are wrong it's pictures of their old location so it doesn't look anything like the Google Pictures FYI . Service wasn't great we had 730 reservations got there at 715 and there were lots of empty tables and they made us wait. The menu online is also not the menu they give you.

    This is an “all you can eat” place now and they’re very pushy about selling the premium all you can eat menu. Food is awful, mostly ABC quality sushi. Wouldn’t go back.

    We have eaten here a few times and it was amazing! We came back to celebrate our 25th Anniversary and it was loud, the sushi was bland and not overly inspired. The crispy rice was good but that was it. Unfortunately something has changed since our last visits. It was so loud (the music was great though) but just not what we had planned. Had the food been the same, I would be elated! But it was not!

    The new location is garbage. The menu is half of what it used to be and the items that were best sellers are gone. They do have the honey toast still but they use different ice cream which is not great. This place used to be a great restaurant and a Honolulu staple. Now I don’t see it lasting through the year.

    Be careful with the all you can eat. When we went, they had hamachi kama and salmon kama on the menu but they ran out. Come to find out they only have 1-2 pieces each day. So if you’re not the first customers to order it, you probably ain’t going to get it.

    We went on the recommendation of a friend, but I think it has changed a lot since he has eaten there. First of all, it has moved locations - just next door, but my husband upon walking in said the ambiance wasn’t at all the ambiance his friend had described - the old location looked much classier. Then, after having looked at the menu online ahead of time to get an idea of what we wanted to order, we were informed that they had just changed the menu the week before, to some kind of all you can eat setup. The staff seemed very unsure of the details of how it worked, and it was very confusing. My husband was disappointed that it was more rolls than actual sushi. Overall not at all what we’d expected based on his friend’s description.

    Food was good, some took really long. While waiting for food we witnessed wait staff repeatedly grabbing each other inappropriately. This made us uncomfortable and we end our dining experience earlier due to these "events".

    Overall, the AYCE pricing is fair. Definitely got our moneys worth. The rolls came out a bit late. The pupus were good to hold us over until the next roll came. I think if you allow 2 rolls per person it might actually save a lot of time especially when we have 90 minutes to eat. Live music would be nice during the hours of 6-730pm just to build a vibe. There were dishes I’ve always wanted to try in the past that I finally was able too because it was listed on the menu. Our server was Anela, she was nice and gave us good recommendations. I would recommend to anyone. Definitely coming back for AYCE. The open table app was easy to use.

    we went here for their AYCE. Made reservations at 6pm but came in 10 mins early but was seated right away. Waitress was nice, food was delicious. throughout our dine in, we were given about 3 dishes that we haven't ordered.. 2 of the orders was for the table next to us, and the other order we already received prior and only ordered 1 but was given a 2nd one, given that you have to eat all the food upon leaving to avoid an upcharge if you had left overs. we got our bill and got charged for 4 adults and 1 child where there was only 3 adults and 2 toddlers (1 toddler being 2 yrs old). Water was never refilled as well.

    The food was dry. I normally like shokudo but the food was different this time. Felt like everything was bland. They served my honey toast with super melted icecream. I asked the waiter for a drink and never got it, had to ask another worker.
