Went there for my second time and had the Omakase. Dangerously good and expensive. They let you eat as little or as much as you want. My wife ended before me and it's a good thing because our bill was over 225 with two beers and I didn't think I ate that much. Though I was full. Fresh and creative.... More

Kin Chan is a top notch sushi restaurant; it is kind of hidden in Restaurant Row. As everyone else notes, the seating is limited to like 12 or 14, so you need to make reservations. All the seating is at the sushi bar, since the owner chef does not speak too much English, for us non-Japanese speaking customers one of... More

If you want a true Japan-like sushi bar experience in Honolulu, there are only a few places you can go. Some are "over-the-top" expensive, but few are modestly priced and exceptional. Kin Chan stands out. Walk through the door and you are transported to the type of hole-in-the-wall sushi bar you would find in Tokyo. Let the chef go omakase... More

No glitz and glam here, just a simple sushi bar with an experienced chef. The owner , Mr. Kin does not speak English, but his food does all the talking. No fancy trendy rolls, just delicious sushi and sashimi. Loved the Toro.. Melted in my mouth. Uni was creamy and fresh. Not large portions, but delicious. Sushi bar seating only.... More

Kin Chan Sushi is located in Restaurant Row, close to downtown Honolulu. This small family operated restaurant has outlasted other much larger eating and entertainment establishments in the same location (this speaks favorably for Kin Chan). It is a sushi bar style restaurant which seats about 12-14 people max. It is not a place for talking business, but it is... More

Six of us who were in Honolulu for a conference broke loose of the beach area on a Saturday night and headed (by cab) to "restaurant row". On the basis of the excellent recommendations on Trip Advisor we were headed to Kin Chan. Honestly, I don't have much to add to the reviews that are here already, but I will... More

We went to Kin Chan for my husband's birthday. We can't get enough of Kin Chan. It is small and intimate. The sushi chef is personable and expert at his craft. The first is as fresh and succulent as it comes. We have been coming for many years, though just a few times a year. This time was as good... More

Excellent choice for "Ala Carte Sushi." There's also menu choices too. The food was exceptionally fresh, tasty, and service was politely administrative. It's a small eatery with limited seating (12).
