Business is brisk at this landmark Kauai eatery. The food is a mix of Japanese, Chinese, and local-style cooking, served up in hearty portions. The ginger chicken and fried shrimp are wildly popular, as are the fresh sashimi and sushi at the tiny sushi bar. Other choices include tempura, chicken katsu (Japanese-style fried chicken), beef broccoli, and robatayaki (grilled seafood and meat). The main dining room is rather unattractive, but the private rooms in back look out on the Japanese garden and fishponds and feature traditional seating on tatami mats at low tables. These tearooms can be reserved and are favored for family events and celebrations.
