We were on Waikiki and looking for good Japanese food and beer, so we tried Tanaka of Tokyo East after our hotel referred it. The service was fast and very friendly. The menu was very extensive and we enjoyed our visit. The location was convenient in central Waikiki not far off the beach .

The skills on these chefs are amazing. Worth paying the prices just for the experience. The food was lovely and obviously fresh. It gets very hot as you are sat around the grill and we were a bit cramped as there were 10 of us sat around the grill.
The waiter service was amazing, I have never experienced such polite staff.

We had the pleasure of dining in Tanaka restaurant tonight, from the moment we entered until the time we left the service wad absolutely excellent. The food.. ..well that was on another level....pure excellence.
The skill and engagement of senior Chef Jose as he cooked in front of you was a delight to watch.
I recommend this place as a dining experience.
I am not going to tell you what I had or the cost ad it is immaterial, the table of 10 had different selections at different prices but all agreed it was worth it.

This restaurant is a great location for great Japanese Yakiniku Dinner. The offer validated parking and Chief shows are a great entertainment in a socializing environment.

The chef and food were really great. The restaurant is expensive and yet so is Hawaii. We ordered 2 adult meals and 3 kids meals and the bill came to $130 with a standard 18% tip. The adult meals consisted on steak and chicken which were the cheaper options on the menu.
