Pricey but worth it.
I came here with very high expectations from all the reviews here. I’ve done omakase style sushi many times before in North America and in Japan. We came in during their last seating. And we felt rushed out of there. The restaurant looked pretty run down and old. It isn’t traditional omakase that I’m used to - The pieces of nigiri were made by the chef, but then delivered by a server. Some of the fish were quite fresh and good, but others weren’t good at all. The rice in each piece of fish was inconsistent. Some were hard and some soft, and some were hot and then some cold. The staff were friendly though despite it being on an article claiming to be one of the most abusive restaurants in America.
Very innovative Japanese cuisine. I'd call it modern sushi. Excellent ingredients and preparation. Not a place to dine at Though if you don't enjoy seafood. They had 4 types of tuna including skipjack, yellowfin, big eye and Bluefin! If that's not enough, we also had, Ski, Japanese horse mackerel, opaka, squid, lobster, amberjack, Octopus, prawns, crab meat, Uku... good list of sake but poor wine menu. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Lots of Aloha spirit here. Staff explained all the dishes very clearly and even explained how the chef presented the squid dish. The squid was stuffed with sesame paste with crab meat center. It melted in your mouth. Be warned! This is an omase restaurant! The dishes are up to the chef! They ask if you have and dietary restrictions or allergies but there is no AL la carte menu. They're slogan is "Trust me ". This is a place not to be missed if you enjoy sushi and innovative Japanese cuisine. We visit every time we come to Honolulu. Oh! You have to tell them when you're getting full or the food just keeps coming!
