Shokudo - Honolulu
The speciality of the house-thick japanese white toast cutout & cubed, drizzled with honey & topped with vanilla ice cream.
Homemade Tofu Salad
Homemade tofu drizzled with creamy sesame dressing and served with crispy, wontons, nori & mixed greens.
Baked sushi rice with salmon, scallops, crabmeat & onion, cut into bite-sized pickled jalapeno.
Host did not realize we had made reservations via Open Table. Was scolded by Open Table for not keeping the reservation. Never received an apology from the restaurant.
Enjoyed the food and good service. Will come back
We went for Happy Hour but found it was half off so you got have portions. Not a great value. My glass of wine did not look like a got the correct portion. The 15th year anniversary Golden Honey Loaf desert you needed to purchase it($20) for more than the regular size loaf ($9)in order to get a ticket that you may win the $500 or a discount on your next dining. I thought you just order the regular loaf & get a ticket regardless.
We always enjoy the food at Shokudo and loved the S’mores honey toast to celebrate the restaurant’s 15th anniversary. Our favorite dishes are the cheese mochi Au gratin, the agadashi tofu, and the lobster dynamite. We will be back!
Best Tofu ever, wished I knew my dish the second night was eel, didn't recognize what it was on the menu, looked like beef! Probably for us 'not in the know' put that one on the menu, the photo looks like beef ribs!!!
Great food and awesome customer service.
Great location, great atmosphere! The food was great and priced very reasonably! I had the lobster California roll (special) and it was one of the best sushi plates I have ever had! $15.00. Definitely recommend trying this place out.
Such food! Dynamite lobster rolls are the best!
The food was good! However service was on the slow side.
Bad service, we ordered and order was displaced no apology asked for box for leftovers, not give.
Friend moving away
We love Shokudo and now with Open Table online reservations it’s awesome to plan a family dinner with an amazing menu.
We were seated promptly and our food was delicious as always.
Outstanding welcome at front desk. First time ever. Two smiling faces.
Shokudo ramen pork was too tough. Broth too garlicky. Always order the same ramen. It's usually top notch. Not today.
Tempura side order and spider roll are excellent. (However, heard sushi maker coughing. Yikes!)
Overall experience was average. Our seating was tight, meant for party of 6. Food was tasty but it seems kitchen and sushi chef had hard time keeping up with orders. Due to delay, cancelled stone pot and sushi orders. Waiter was very pleasant and helpful.
Loved the honey toast.
Very good, thank you for accommodating a large group.
The service was great. The food was fresh and appealing. The soup stock was a little heavy, but delicious. First time ordering the Honey Toast and it was onolicious.
Great find during our day in Honolulu. Loved the spicy miso ramen and selection of sushi and sashimi . our server Daniel took excellent care of us during a busy lunch time.
we will be back - thank you so much Shokudu for a memorable dining experience
Food was very good, when it actually came out to table. Unfortunately the service was uncoordinated and quite slow. Was at restaurant for 2 and 1/2 hours and still had not received all dinner entrees to table. One of our party actually never received dinner at all, although restaurant tried to charge us for it even though we never received. It would be difficult to find a place as uncaring and with no concern for your experience. Waiter was polite, but unable to handle our table of 10. Manager was not aware and provided no response other than an insincere, ‘I’m sorry’ when we spoke with him. So to sum up the experience would be this: Food was good, but save your time and spend your money elsewhere in Honolulu as there are much better establishments aiming to give you both good food and a pleasant experience.
Food was delicious! Loved the honey toast too!
It was New Year’s Eve, so they were busy, but it was a wonderful evening overall!
Great food and fabulous service!
Great service and had a lot of options that each guest got to choose and share . Great place to go before a Broadway show at the Blaisdell. Service was great :) and must get the Honey Toast dessart, they have small size now :)
Good food. Good service.
Waiter forgot our sushi order then blames the chef. Took way too long to finally get the order to us after we pointed it out. Then had to wait long time for desert and again long wait for check. As bad as service was, so was the next table who were FaceTiming someone with volume up high. Food was not special. Will not go back.
Family time. Great plates for sharing and sampling, also delicious cocktails. Always one of my favorite spots for special occasions.
Celebrating my wife’s birthday!
The food we ordered came quickly and well-presented. Over all, it was good. Not amazing, but good. A bit pricey for what was delivered- even for sushi. Would eat here again, but after trying a few more spots.
5 of us ordered family style and enjoyed all the dishes - tofu salad, mochi cheese, lobster roll, Sukiyaki bimbap and pizza. Thank you for the delicious bread pudding tempura for my birthday. I love the 20% coupon that I was able to use that I had cut out from the newspaper.
The food is always delicious and there's enough variety on the menu for even a vegan (my brother-in-law). The Homemade Tofu salad is a "must have" whenever I go to Shokudo. One of my favorite dishes!
We used to go to Shokudo a lot and loved this place
Hadn’t been in over a year but when occasion arose we wanted to celebrate there
The menus were tattered and gross
That chairs we were sitting in were worn and torn
The food portions smaller and we received raw chicken karaage
The service was pleasant but slow and the place was not too crowded
To finish the night we were waiting for the famous Honey Toast- but again disappointed. There was barely any flavor
Overall not the Shokudo we used to love. In desperate need of a makeover!
Good value for what you order. The honey toast is a must!
Alex our server was awesome. Big thank you to Calvin for accommodating our special drink request as well, we really appreciated it. We celebrated our best friends birthday & she really enjoyed the entire dining experience
It was busy night but services was slow. They didn’t ask if we needed water. It was about 10 minutes when we finally got water. We were here to try out the Hawaii restaurant week. The set menu was perfect but the food was coming to fast. It was hard to enjoy but overall it was delicious.
Service was okay, food was good but the menu's were very worn and good looking. Haven't been to this restaurant in a while but got the feeling it had gone down in appearance. The menu also looked like the amount of dishes got smaller unless it was because of being lunch.
We enjoyed our dinner here! When we want tempura we head for Shokudo. Does not disappoint!
If we went earlier, we could have taken advantage of your generous Early Bird offerings.
There’s always next time! Tofu salad is one of my fav too!
Location was hard to locate. Greeting could’ve improved dramatically but the food was pretty good and our server was splendid.
Food at Shokudo never disappoints! Always came here with my husband for some date nights in the past. Its the first time we brought our kids and they loved everything we ordered. Will definitely be back with my kids soon.
Overall.. it was a decent experience.
The only issue, was the service. Our waitress took a very long time to come over and take our order. It was a slow night from what I remember.
However, we enjoyed the food and company of friends.
We arrived 10 minutes before happy hour ended and were not able to order drinks, as last call for happy hour was apparently 5:45. We ordered four rolls, and each roll had twice as much rice as you typically want in a roll, and half as much fish. For the price, this was certainly the worst sushi dinner we’ve had.
After 6 pm background music very loud and generally with guest coming, very noisy.
Food was delicious with good portions and variety to choose from.
