For the best sashimi in town, this is definitely the place to go to. My husband and I eat at this restaurant frequently and have never been disappointed.

The Hakubai is the one gem that you will find in the Mendana Hotel. A food oasis where one can find well preparared food. After two depressing meals in the Hotels Capitana Restauarnt I fled to the Hakubai for the rest of my evening meals.

There is a good range of japanese style food choices, sashima, noodle dishes, japanese curries and the inevitable teppayaki style chicken and beef. If you want to have a blow out then there are some House specials.

Service was attentive and very good. I tried a range of curries and teppanyaki. The plates had a range of side dishes - salads, miso soup, raw fruit etc that made for a balancecmeal.

Pricing was fair at around 18 - 25 dollars for a main. I slakeed my thirst with Honiaras finest, SolBrew which is a drinkable lager. There is wine available but I didn't indulge.

Clientele were mainly ex pats with some large parties coming in on occasion so it may pay to book to secure a seat.

The difference between the Capitana and the Habukai is that the Capitana seems to sereve fuel and the Habukai serves food.
