Japanese Restaurants in Waikiki

Select Local Merchants

From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Bacon-wrapped Asparagus - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Wasabi Crunchy Shrimp, and Ahi Tuna Poke. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, ahi tuna, or chicken with chili mayo until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.

For more than 35 years, Kobe Steak House's skilled master chefs have fired seafood, meat, and vegetarian fare on tableside griddles—or teppans—right in front of captivated patrons. Pulling from a pantry stocked with tender aged beef, Nova Scotia scallops, cold water lobsters, and garden-fresh vegetables, these teppanyaki artists dazzlingly toss their ingredients and cookery tools into the air as they sear dishes such as teriyaki chicken or Emperor steak. Diners can also dig their chopsticks into sushi selections, including fresh cuts of daily-caught Hawaiian maguro sashimi.

When they're not watching the chefs helm a thrilling knife show, guests can cast their gaze upon the antique décor of a 300-year-old fisherman kimono, emperor dolls, fine porcelain hibachis, and steak-sauce bottles from the Edo period.

Odoriko Restaurant has reaped the delectable harvest of the sea and transformed it into stylish Japanese cuisine for almost 40 years. A crew of seasoned chefs slice seafood and twirl it into rolls, such as the Odoriko roll with salmon, squid, avocado, and tuna ($9.95). King clam holds court over the sashimi menu ($25), leading the octopus ($12.50), aji ($11.50), and other sea creatures in the war against cooking. Nabemono, or hot-pot dishes, invite diners to brandish culinary gadgets and sear their choice of meat, vegetables, and Odoriko's handmade tofu at their tables ($35+). Nine varieties of sake headline the vast drink menu, which also includes shochu, a distilled traditional Japanese liquor ($6.95+ per glass). Odoriko extends a sharable party menu to groups of four or more, who may transform their conviviality into a full-fledged bash in a private room complete with karaoke and nearly endless renditions of "Endless Love."

Part swanky lounge with plush leather seating, part neighborhood burger joint with scrubbed wooden tables, Sway Restaurant and Bar is a mecca for creative fusion. The cuisine follows suit with American classics that receive an Asian makeover. Tacos are stuffed with Korean kalbi short ribs and salmon is marinated in miso and served atop buckwheat soba noodles. Hawaiian grass-fed beef goes into the burgers, which include a version inspired by traditional Vietnamese banh mi.
