This is one of the best places by far..Although at times the wait is long the food and service is well worth it. If you don't want a long wait on the weekend I suggest you go around 8 or 8:30 wait time is about...More

Kunio's has been the place to get your Japanese Food fix west of the airport since it opened! Some people say Gyotaku is better but the Miso Butterfish can't be challenged anywhere on island! We've been going here for nearly 10+ years and they haven't...More

Nice enough place. Food was OK, nothing great, but nothing bad either. Maybe lacked a bit of taste. Was very busy but we ate at the bar and so didn't have to wait.

So the food here is always good but I think the scallop scare from genki sushi has hurt their business as well. It wasn't crowded like before so it's good for customers. I always get the butterfish...yummy. Bonus is they got Orion beer!

I really can't remember the meal, or the dinner conversation for that matter. Very un-memorable meal. I do remember being hungry after dinner and stopping to get a McDouble on the way home. And for being hungry the bill was a bit high.

We came here for the first time after seeing Instagram photos and recommendations for the butterfish. We definitely weren't disappointed. While this place isn't among the cheaper restaurants we've been to, the value of what you're getting makes it all worthwhile, there's usually a wait...More
