Came here for my birthday dinner. We had the sushi pizza and three other rolls, which were good. But a must is the honey bread.

No wonder that our waiter said: "Everyone comes here." Great food, service and price was very reasonable. Recommended to us by several Honolulu friends.

Our party dined in a separate room which could seat 14 individuals. It was perfect for our family birthday party! Staff was very courteous and helpful. They checked in on us and made sure we had our food and drinks! Ordering the pupus and then ordering dinner items worked out well for us as as a couple of people came a little later but it didn't hold up the party! We brought our own birthday cake which the staff stored for us and then brought out with plates, candles and a knife. It worked out great!!!

Horrible experience! This place has gone DOWN HILL! I thought I’d be a nice place to eat with my family from outer island, for my Dad’s birthday... BIG mistake! The decor was shabby, not in a chic way, the paint was rubbing of decor, dust above, menus were gross, the womens bathroom faucet didn’t work... ugh! The food was okay if you like under cooked shrimp tempura. The dishes that came out wasn’t timed right, one dish came out, 5 minutes later another dish came out, then another, finally after 20 minutes we all had our food. Asked for sushi to have meat medium rare, but it was definitely on the well side. For dessert we had the “honey toast.” It was okay, but not flavored enough, some pieces were like croutons. The other honey toast we had added bananas and caramel, the bananas were waaaay under ripe so there was no banana taste. We also ordered the banana flambé , it also had tasteless undercooked bananas...
Bottom line, don’t waste your time or money eating here. I was raving about Shokudo, now I feel foolish.

I've gone to Shokudo a few times and have my favorites. The Honey toast is simple yet delicious in every way. I also love the mochi cheese gratin as a side and the spicy sushi pizza has a crunch and fire that you can find anywhere else.

We went here for my mom’s birthday. The servers were all really nice. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We also got a free Valentine’s Day strawberry honey toast in addition to the birthday bread pudding, which was really nice of them.

Food quality was just average. Missed the popular Salmon Rice dish.

Food quality was better than average; however, server could have been kinder and tolerant to my elderly and valued business client who has survived a stroke several years ago, has trouble hearing and was bothered by a broken soy sauce bottle lid, which caused soy sauce to spill onto his hand when pouring.
When my client asked our server for a towel to wipe his hand, there was no apology, but received a curt answer to use an extra paper napkin nearby. We had to ask for drink refills and had several different servers bring the food piece meal and it took awhile for dishes to be finally taken away after consumption. I had to console my client as he was a bit upset and that should not happen during a business lunch where the food and service should be the least of my worries.
I believe in giving this place another try for a business lunch and see if results differ as I do like the food and location.

Our party of 8 couldn't get together during the holidays, so we came out to celebrate at Shokudo. The food is always good. The place was very busy but we we still received excellent service. This place handles parties well.

First time back to shokudo in a few years. Food was very disappointing - seared beef sushi was really bad - flavorless and tough. Kara age chicken was greasy. There were gnats swarming around our table as well and the family sitting next to us had their iPad turned on very loudly to entertain their toddler while dining. Only positive was the service - still very good.
