This is a tiny restaurant across from Safeway in Kailua. It's a hidden gem, with good food and drinks. They serve alcohol and have the best Saki.

Tonkatsu best I've had. Very good quality seafood (sashimi,etc). Excellent Unagi. The people serving us were genuinely friendly and competent.

Wonderfully fresh sushi and amazing service! We shared a number of different rolls and each one was well crafted and tasty. We will be back next time we are in Kailua.

We stopped in for lunch on the way to the beach and found some amazing Japanese cuisine. The sushi and soba noodle dishes were great.

It was a quaint sort of hole in the wall. The hostess would remember us and the food was good. Then they changed management. We went after they reopened and the waiters didnt know anything about the food so service sucked. The food was not as good. The portions were smaller and prices higher. The ambiance was never great but... More

Great sushi and fantastic service in a laid back atmosphere. The food was very fresh and the waiter very welcoming. However, the dining room felt a little too "low key" for the price range of the place.
