Very reasonable for an Izakaya. Easy location to get to near Waikiki. Everyday happy hour till 6:30pm...even on special occasion. During happy hour sake for $3.00...wow! Everyone raves about the pork chops and for a good reason, delicious and inexpensive.

This Resturant is a very nice local place that has typically Izakaya food. Good for eating and chatting with friends. All the reviews talk about the Tufu Trio samplers and with good reason. It is very good. This would have been the highlight of a...More
