From entrepreneur Kevin Aoki, son of Benihana founder Rocky Aoki, comes this low-lit bells-and-whistles sushi-roll chain (Miami, Kuala Lumpur, and Ho Chi Minh City have other locations) aimed at a nightclubbing crowd. Order dishes such as tuna tataki and the popular Emporer Roll, a seafood extravaganza of tuna, crab, shrimp, and scallop crusted in panko and flash-fried. And there is tempura everything—from lobster to brownies. The Waikiki location caters to the visitor
crowd, while locals head to the newer location on Kapiolani Boulevard, near the Ala Moana Center (1009 Kapiolani Blvd., Tel. 808/591–0101). This place is not for sushi purists, but it's perfect for party people.
