Fodor's Review

Norio's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. On the garden level of the Fairmont Orchid, this restaurant and Chef Darren Ogasawara's cuisine appeal to both steak and seafood lovers, from Australian A6 Wagyu rib eye (seasoned with five different kinds of Hawaiian sea salt) to hamachi-and-avocado sashimi served with ponzu-garlic sauce. Dry-aged meats from Kulana Farms are served on cedar planks, while free-range chicken and sustainably caught Hawaiian seafood round

out the offerings. Everything is made from scratch, including the sauces, and the fish is as fresh as it gets. Special dietary considerations are accommodated; the gluten-free vegetable tempura and soy-free udon noodle are as flavorful as the originals. Fairmont Orchid Hawaii, 1 N. Kaniku Dr., Kohala Coast, HI, 96743. 808/885–2000. Closed Tues. and Wed. No lunch.
