My wife and I went here for an early dinner after an afternoon of Sunday errands. The food was home-made and made with the freshest ingredients. Service was attentive. Will come back when shopping at the Waikele Outlet Mall.

I love the flavor of this Japanese food. I always order a Teishoku and plenty of vegetable, miso soup and rice are served with your main entree. Oh yes, I can't forget to mention the rice. I would say the prices are comparable to many other places. The manager is always welcoming and the service is fast . I never... More

Manager was a great guy and fun to talk to. Chicken Teriyaki was not very good, and the rest of the dish was average at best.

Small Japanese restaurant in Waipahu, see my reviews on Waipahu Cafe regarding the type of neighborhood, that's popular with the locals for food and drinks. What we call in Hawai'i as a "pau hana" place. It's where a lot of people stop by after work to have drinks and pupu. The food in the restaurant is good but not great.... More

A visitor to the area may feel out of place when stepping through the doors of this restaurant and bar but do not be dissuaded. The owner/manager is exceptionally welcoming with a super sense of humor. When in doubt as to what to order due to the expanse of the menu, throw yourself onto the mercy of the wait staff... More
