We like the vast combinations of the food. There is something for everyone. They recently updated their menu and now have more to choose from. I like their salads selections better than before- which most Japanese restaurants seem to neglect - even their regular "comes with salad" is better than most places because of the nice mix of different vegetables (most Japanese restaurants seem to think that tiny portions of salted vegetables alone is sufficient). I like their senior menu available for my parents and the early bird specials which have a nice assortment of everything for a reasonable price. I like to be able to get two kinds of sushi and some tempura and a nice salad and the miso soup for @ $10. Which makes it one of the best deals in town for a nice sit down meal. We like it so much that we request gift cards from our relatives for this place. We think that it is better than most plate lunch places for value and taste - and it is not a starchy and greasy menu like most of them. Lots of local think the same thing and the lines for seating can get long on days like Father's day and all holidays. Which is why it is better to go on non holiday days and go when they first open for the day for lunch or an early dinner for better service and parking. The parking at most of their multiple restaurants is usually too limited and the tables crowded together- try for the booths and try to make reservations. Parking at their Aiea/Pearl city location is bad underneath the building and it has a steep slanted ramps that can scrap the bottom of the car if your car is full of people entering or leaving while getting over the hump from street level. The parking lot under the building was made for compact cars and there are too many concrete pillars and little space for turnings into the parking stalls- too many times we have had to let someone out to help guide the midsize car into spaces between large SUV's. There is upper level parking but even that is full in the first 30 minutes it is open. Lots of times we do a drop off and have just parked across the street and one person gets the car. That is a problem with most of their restaurants - that and the long waits to get seated if you did not make reservations and the tight seating at the King street restaurant (Aiea/Pearl city has mostly booths).
