The menu is cheaper due to their lunch menu. If you want to try it not not wanting to pay $28 and up go during lunch time. Their lunch menu is around &13-$14 dollars. It's super filling and gives you your tonkatsu fix.

You will feel like you are in Japan, not in Hawaii when you are there. All the foods are authentic and uniquely Japanese foods. Mostly tonkatsu! The sauce is so good, and unique! I tried their mixed Tonkatsu meal for my dinner. The way they...More
