Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Outstanding service. The food was good, not great. We had sushi and ramen. They are known for their ramen. Nice outdoor seating. Reasonably priced.

This casual ramen eatery located in Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue and, in the Alohilani Resort where I was staying, made it a convenient lunch spot where my family and I enjoyed Iron Chef Morimoto's noodles plus more. The Sticky Ribs with Hoisin Chili sauce is...a must try to start with, alongside the Garlic Shrimp. Steer away from the sushi selections though. But, the ramen each of us had was delicious, the broth with great complexity and flavor. And to our surprise, Chef Morimoto walked past our table and into the kitchen (see pic). There are no reservations so during the evenings, tables fill up quickly and a wait usually forms. Try dining at lunch, beat the crowds, dine leisurely with friendly service and, enjoy a great bowl of ramen by an Iron Chef in beautiful Waikiki.More

An excellent location for equally excellent food. Service was very friendly and they made sure we enjoyed the experience of dining here. Great menu for a broad selection. We will definitely go again if we come back to Oahu.

The food was delicious and full of flavour. Unfortunately, the service was a bit disjointed. Easy access from Waikiki Beach.

I always order the same entree the Kontaksu. The broth was flavorful as was the pork. My husband tried the spicy tan tan and enjoyed it as well. Our server was very attentive. We felt the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend!!!

This was our last lunch before leaving Waikiki to fly home. What a great lunch spot. Near the ocean with ideal outdoor patio totally in the shade with nice breeze. The wait staff was very friendly. There is happy hour $4 Kona beer!! Got two...tonkatsu ramen: delicious ramen with nice pork belly. Just half an egg, and seaweed & green onions. Also got the soft shell crab bao for appetizer along with karaage chicken. The chicken was nicely done. A bit pricey, but it is Waikiki and Morimoto.More

We ate here 3 times whilst staying in Waikiki. Each time we didn’t have a reservation and chose to eat at the bar. We sampled many dishes, appetisers, noodles and entrées all were delicious. The staff were so lovely & engaging.

Our group couldn't decide on dinner, so we were wandering around and found Momosan. I'm so glad we did. We waited only around 20 mins on a busy Sunday night. They closed relatively early at 8:00, so plan accordingly. The service was friendly and attentive....The noodles and gyoza were delicious. I had the Tsukemen, which was amazing. Everything was a bit pricey, but hey, you're in Waikiki. It was so good, we thought about coming back a second time.More

We came here for dinner and was seated right away. We ordered popcorn shrimp as appetizer which was good. The tuna poke bowel was good, but California roll was just OK. The water in plastic cup tasted weird, so we didn't drink.
