If it wasn’t for Yelp, I never would have found this place. It’s a large Japanese food court on the second and third levels of the Ala Moana Center, next to Macy’s. Don’t confuse it with the main mall food court with all the American fast food, it’s way different.

It’s overwhelming upon entering due to the sheer volume of offerings. Sushi, cooked fish and meats, tonkatsu, ramen, desserts… the list goes on and on. Clearly enough to satisfy almost any appetite. Take your time and look around before you pick up anything because you’re likely to see a dozen things you’ll want to eat for lunch or dinner. I ended up with three items. A decent poke, a sweet and flakey miso butterfish, and freshly fried mochiko chicken. Prices were more than reasonable but can add up fast when you’re walking around and picking up half a dozen things.
