$43 for Dinner Buffet or Prix Fixe Menu for Two ($86 Value)
The dinner buffet at Ushio-Tei includes spicy tuna or unagi maki, miso salmon, and spicy seaweed salad. The prix fixe menu, which changes daily, draws from the buffet menu and includes several small courses, such as an appetizer, entree, tempura, soup, pickles, and dessert.
Within the Marriott Ihilani resort, the calm of a serene Japanese garden washes over neighboring Ushio-Tei. There, the chefs skip typical American takes on Japanese cuisine in favor of more adventurous items, such as natto, fermented soybeans that pair with slices of raw calamari or Pacific tuna. Black tiger prawns crackle in thin coats of tempura in the fryer, and maki rolls conceal freshwater eel, mango, and pearlescent slivers of pickled daikon radishes. The scent of teriyaki sauce fills the air as knives flick through local veggies and Japanese plum, and chefs steam Maine lobsters with a garlic butter sauce similar to the substance that makes hockey rinks slippery.
