Behind Tokoname's dark-wood storefront and rustic carved sign, chefs craft of authentic Japanese fare by the light of hanging lanterns. Sushi standards such as ahi tuna nigiri and shrimp tempura share table space with more exotic seasonal items, including abalone and monkfish liver. Patrons can also opt to wash down meals with a round of sake cocktails or a beer tower for the table. During lunches at the Manoa location, chefs also drizzle chicken in homemade teriyaki sauce.

Kabuki Restaurant's tableside chefs continue a lively culinary tradition dating back to 1965, hypnotizing guests with gyrating flames as they grill Japanese specialties that complement the sushi bar's raw bounty of seafood-infused rolls. The teppanyaki masters inspire awe while unlocking the flavors of thinly sliced beef, chicken, and veggies on their fiery grills, tossing the ingredients skyward in a cruel game of monkey-in-the-middle with two other chefs. After furnishing empty stomach space with tempura, california, and spicy-tuna sushi rolls, diners can bring home bottled servings of the eatery's house yakiniku and butteryaki sauces for their own culinary adventures.

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.

The selection of Japanese-infused dishes at Violet's Grill is expansive. Chefs can stir-fry veggies and meats, and their creative endeavors include pig’s-feet soup and a plateful of string beans and Spam. Ahi katsu, shrimp tempura, and chicken teriyaki also stand out on the menu.

Tenyaku's menu abounds in yakiniku and shabu-shabu, two closely intertwined styles of traditional Japanese cooking. Yakiniku is a shared social meal, ordered one or two bites at a time, so that tantalized tongues can sample a smorgasbord of savory fare, including teriyaki chicken ($5.95), premium Kobe beef short ribs ($19.50), grilled pork belly ($5.95), and Korean-style octopus ($6.50). Shabu-shabu, or Japanese hot pot, also treats groups of gourmands to a cornucopia of thinly sliced meats, veggies, and supplemental dipping sauces. Where yakiniku metes out customer-selected bites, shabu-shabu unleashes a colossal cavalcade of the chef’s choosing, complete with a tabletop pot to cook it in. At Tenyaku, shabu-shabu comes in three varieties: beef ($19.95), seafood ($24.95), and beef and seafood ($23.95), but any order should contain enough variety to placate the persnickety and to ensure the meal’s genetic line adapts to evolutionary changes. Diners can also select one of Tenyaku's many Korean options, such as the fiery pork kimchi ($9.50) or the traditional Korean bulgogi, with sweetly savory marinated beef ($14.95).
