    We arrived slightly after our scheduled reservation and subsequently had to rush our dinner to make it to the theater on time. The staff was super pleasant and helpful and (we think) made sure our food came out expeditiously. The food was phenomenal. We ordered a couple of things off the 'specials' menu - a Waygu beef bibimbop type of thing and the White Tiger Roll. Both were DELICIOUS. Also just as delicious was the Tofu Salad. It was served so nicely with two beds of greens with a giant block of yummy soft tofu with their sesame dressing smothering the whole thing - absolutely fantastic, we had to scoop up the extra tofu and dressing and mixed it into the rice.... We will definitely be back to try other awesome looking items on the menu.

    Unfortunately we will probably not be going back. It’s been a tradition for the last 6 years that we have dinner at Shokudo for my sons birthday. It used to be his favorite place because of the sushi rolls. Tonight we waited 45minutes for his favorite sushi that by the time it was done we asked for them to put it in a take out container since we had eaten everything else that came. It took about 30min for our waiter to come back and check on us but by that time we had already alerted the check in agent that we were ready for our check. Also, it was so hot in there which made it even more uncomfortable. The ceiling fans were on but I don’t think there’s any ac my poor 5mo old baby was sweating profusely. Also, I might be nit-picking here but the amount of wasabi on the first sushi platters wasn’t even enough for our entire party we had to wait for the next platters to come. Shoyu was in packets as well.. unfortunately this went from our favorite place to eat to least favorite and probably will not be returning in the future.

    Don’t order the frozen Gyoza. The rolls and sashimi are still good. Take it easy on the server as they seem extremely short staffed. We miss the prior location. This one is too hot inside!

    Our food came out sporadically and did not make any sense. We canceled our order of chicken karaage since it was taking much too long and the assorted tempura also took long and was not very good.

    Came in to try the new menu items. The miso glazed eggplant is a great addition. Good portion, great miso glaze. We enjoyed it. On the other hand, the washugyu ishiyaki was not our favorite. The yakiniku sauce made it very sweet and it just felt like the bibimbap sub sukiyaki beef for washugyu and less vegetable and more sweet taste. I prefer my entrees to not be as sweet. :( THE SMORES HONEY TOAST WAS AMAZING BUT the toast was over cooked and similar to a crouton which was disappointing…. And I mean 90% of the toast pieces were basically crouton. It was sad :( Server was good - attentive and nice.

    The food is a wonderful creative mix of what I'd call "traditional" Japanese and other influences. The Sushi Pizza comes to mind, along with the Cheesy Mochi dish they have as well. Service was decent, the waitress was very attentive though I got the impression that they were a little understaff or overwhelmed. Not a fan of the middle booths, where the divider is only a noren, the type of curtain you usually see over the doorway of shops and restaurants in Japan. I kept having to adjust myself and check that I wasn't putting an elbow or foot into the opposite side of the table where there was another couple eating.

    We picked Shokudo out of a yelp review, they recently downsized to a smaller facility. The food was priced competitively but not what I call Hawaii resort stupid! We had rather simple fare and Louie, our waiter, was an excellent server and really helped make the meal. The freshness and the quality of the food was amazing! Next time we are in Oahu we will definitely come here again. Highly recommend.

    I cannot lie, the taste of the food (that we were served) at this restaurant definitely exceeded expectations. My wife and I are all about "Dynamite" and they really defined the term with a couple of their dishes that carried that word in the name. However, everything else was a disappointment. I would have to limit my experience here to takeout in the future. My overall rating was a 1-star, but maybe 1.5 stars would better capture the experience, considering the taste of the food. The ambiance and service were rated pretty low and may have over-shadowed the taste of the food. Ambiance: Too bright and too loud and too casual for my taste. Not a place to take anyone on a date, unless expectations are a little low. It felt like my experience down the street at the nearest McDonald's sadly...just much slower (but tastier). Service: Super slow. Even with reservations, we were seated "super" late and our waiter was definitely not provided the training needed to support a critic's table. We ordered two more items on the menu, but ultimately cancelled and left because it was taking forever. We didn't get to try the honey bread...sad.

    I was at the convention center and needed a bit to eat. This place was really close and had tables available so I decided to check it out. I’m so glad I did. The miso glazed eggplant was the best eggplant I’ve ever had! I also had a rice bowl with beef that was made tableside in a screaming hot stone bowl. I don’t remember what the dish was called but it was really tasty. The bowl ends up crisping some of the rice so it ends up almost paella like on the bottom. And then I had a tempura fried bread pudding. Whoever came up with that is an evil genius. And the best part, with a beer this whole lunch cost 56 bucks. Insane quality and super reasonable prices. My wife and I are going to be on Oahu in a couple weeks and I can’t wait to take her.

    Been excited about this place ever since I booked for the reservation. Looking at the pictures and countless good reviews, I’ve been looking forward to dine at this place during my trip. However, when I arrived at this place it did not look like the pictures was shown online. It was downsized due Covid, which was understandable but the information was not disclosed. The restaurant were humid and hot, booth were ripped, the whole atmosphere was not very much enjoyable for how much the food were cost. Also, one of the reasons I wanted to try this place from friends’ recommendation and I heard the bar were great. But the bar were closed and still have “japanese and bar” but there were no bar. However, the service were really great! The waitress were super nice. It was just the restaurant itself were not up to how the pictures look like online. I was disappointed and dissatisfied with this experience.

    Please don't believe the 4 and 5 stars rating. This is not worthy any stars. Overpriced. Not decend made. Get your sushi at the 7/11 and you are better off. Soya from sachets. Sticks are from sticky cheap wood. Cups were plastic. Bad experience overall. Tuna sushi is for 5 little pieces 28 usd... just that you know. Water was ok though.

    This has always been a favorite place. We have noticed that quality of the food has improved over the past several months from very good to excellent! The unagi and bibimbap ishiyaki bowls are great choices! And the service remains top notch: everyone from the front desk to our team of servers were cheerful, gracious and efficient.
