The restaurant was rather shabby with cracked vinyl seats, stained walls, and spots on the carpeting. It smelled a bit like an old, damp towel. My salad was actually pretty good for what it was. The lettuce was fresh and the mochiko chicken was crisp and not greasy. It had a lot of edamame and rice cracker croutons but hardly... More

The food was okay, except for the pile on the floor of their kitchen. Pieces of the walls were missing. Everything looked run down. Our waitress did a good job. Was afraid to use their restrooms. At least they were open late.

My family and I ate lunch at this restaurant, because we read trip advisor reviews. I'm so glad we went there! The food was excellent. I had a salmon skin salad, and it was the best salad I've ever had in my life! Everyone enjoyed their meals, and the waitress was wonderful.

Dinner was teriyaki steak, katsu and tempura along with a bowl of Miso soup and salad. I always enjoy their Miso soup and cool salad dish, very refreshing. We also had some hot green tea. The tempura was very good, potato, shrimp, and green beans.

The food was very good for my friend who can "eat anything". But for myself the gluten free options are non existent. I ended up with grilled salmon and rice. It was good but I wouldn't choose this place if you can't have soy sauce. My friend on the other hand loved every bite of her meal.

When I need my Japanese food fix, this is the place I go to in Pearl City. I have been dinning here for many years. My favorite is the tempura & sashimi combo. Their food is always fresh & delicious. Great & fast service from the staff. When in Pearl City must give it a try. Mahalo Cary M
