This place was a legit izakaya- loud atmosphere, good food, good prices. Definitely drink some awamori, and ask for fresh calamansi to squeeze in. The dishes are fun and authentic. Ask your friendly server to recommend something! Call ahead as this place is tiny.

When 80% of the customers are Japanese and there are very few reviews to be found anywhere, I knew this might be a good spot! I called ahead and while everyone speaks English, the staff also spoke Japanese (not usually true in all US Japanese...More

A little cramped but very friendly service. Loved the gyoza pizza and the mozuku. Opens late, so we were happy to find it after arriving on a late flight to Honolulu. Will return and recommend.

This Izakaya is small and cozy. There were only two of us so we sat on the Bar which was nice since you get to see the action and ask questions. There were a fair amount of menu items and specials, and the portions were...More
