    My family and I are visiting Hawaii for the first time and we had a wonderful dinner at Morimoto Asia-Waikiki. The staff were professional and courteous, and our food was brought to us very quickly. This was arguably one of the best meals in our experience!

    This was the best meal I’ve ever had. The appetizers (fish carpaccio and sticky ribs) as well as the 2 lbs crispy fish were absolutely incredible. The service (Marshall) was outstanding and we got to meet Chef Marimoto! Unbelievable experience! Could not emphasize how amazing this was.

    We expected amazing food from an Iron Chef’s restaurant but what we didn’t expect was a fun, lively, exciting atmosphere. We had an absolute blast while enjoying some excellent entrees. From the surf and turf sushi with Wagu beef to the whole sea bass and everything in between the food and overall experience were worth every penny.

    Order the Angry Lobster! It is to die for. We also got the fried rice, shrimp pad Thai, the Ishiyaki Buri Bop, fish carpaccio, pork gyoza, and the spicy tune crispy fried rice. All were amazing.

    Iron Chef Morimoto himself was there!! This is my second time meeting him, the first being 20 years ago at his first restaurant in Philadelphia. He is even more gracious now than he was back then, and that is saying something! The food is good to excellent, but really, it is the experience of dining there, that really sets this restaurant apart. A number of dishes are finished tableside, which makes it feel extra fun and extra special.

    Overall really good Asian fusion for the price considering the location in in Waikiki. Only downside from our visit was the hot and sour soup did not have enough sour making it rather bland. Otherwise, the food was great.

    We were seated in the outside balcony area which sat atop the Waikiki beach strip. The ambience was great and the waiters were all friendly. I especially appreciated the waiter/chef who served my entree when he actally made my ishiyaki dish tableside. The food was wonderfully tasty. I am not a big rib fan, but the spicy ribs we had for appetitizer was delicious. Price was surprisingly reasonable. Overall it was a very delightful dining experience.

    This place was an awesome find! All of the servers were flying around and being extremely helpful and friendly to us and anyone that needed anything. Our server specifically was very kind and went through the whole menu for us. The food was so refreshing and light, but don’t be mislead, the portions are huge and extremely worth it. The roast duck and fried rice were amazing! Definitely would go again!
