They serve awesome Japanese food. I like their pork and fish quite much. It opens at 5pm and reservation is recommended.

It was great at the inception...it was sold and renovated, then it wasn't as good...but whatever happened since then...Izakaya Nonbei is fabulous now! It was part of a progressive dinner in Honolulu on a short layover. We were in and out in half an hour,...More
