We arrived shortly after 6 and it was packed. We sat at the sushi bar and really enjoyed ourselves. Delicious food and super friendly staff. It was busy but it allowed us to take our time and enjoy the food.

Tonkatsu best I've had. Very good quality seafood (sashimi,etc). Excellent Unagi. The people serving us were genuinely friendly and competent.

Wonderfully fresh sushi and amazing service! We shared a number of different rolls and each one was well crafted and tasty. We will be back next time we are in Kailua.

We stopped in for lunch on the way to the beach and found some amazing Japanese cuisine. The sushi and soba noodle dishes were great.
