We went for Mother's Day, the place is large enough so getting a table was no problem. I believe it is $23.95 m-f and $28.95 for weekends & holidays. All you can eat buffet. There are lots of seafood selections, sushi, raw clam & oysters, cooked food as well, and Shabu, where you cook your food at the table in... More

We had dinner and some of the Sushi had funky taste. Being Asian and resident of Honolulu, we shares our findings with the staff. They were very proactive with our discovery. There was no liquor sold a day didn't know this prior. Was advised upon ordering. That would've been okay except no stores in the mall that sell liquor. Service... More

So in a pinch the other night we decided to meet for dinner here (friends). We did the buffet but not the bowl of soup? On the table with the raw bar add ons. Sushi was good, really everything was excellent just need to get there during the winter to try the soup thing. It was too hot that day... More

What a disappointment . Went with friends, we all love fish, sushi and Asian food. Much of it looked good. It was cold dried out tasteless and disappointing to all of us. It was an all time culinary low for me. I would never go back!!!!

I tried several times but I found the Clams and vegetables are full of sands. I have to wash my mouth in the Restroom to clean my teeh from the sands. So do not eat the vegetables, they did not wash it, full of sands.

Overall, worth a try if you like Japanese cuisine or hot pot.There were wins and losses. The maki (sushi rolls) are not very good. The single piece sushi (nigiri) is ok. The raw bar was a big hit. The soups and hot buffet items are pretty good across the board, as are the cold salad items. Dessert is average, and... More

IchiUmi has a large restaurant, but not too many customers. We went on a Sunday night and only a couple tables were occupied. We thought, "Oh that's great, we won't have to fight for food!" Unfortunately, not having too many customers meant not refilling empty dishes. The buffet costs almost $30 per person for dinner with hot pot included. The... More

The only thing that the adults had and the teenagers didn't have was the oyster. The food options was OK, we had better. The waiters was very efficient, quick to clear... More

The sushi and hot food selections are plenty enough. All tasted good. The hot pot is a plus for the lunch. I heard so many reviews from my friends to complaint about the high Price$ charge, I went on Wed. lunch, not so many guests (around 20+). The service can be better.

Offering a large selection of Asian food items, nicely presented in buffet style with numerous options for patrons. Food quality was high and the selection was diverse. Restaurant was clean and well maintained. Staff was courteous but service was rather perfunctory. A fun dining experience, would definitely return here again.
