Todai: More sushi and seafood
Before I came to Hawaii, I promised to myself that I’ll eat seafood and sushi until I can’t see it anymore. Well, I certainly did.
Todai is a huge restaurant located on the Ala Moana, not far from Hilton Village Hotel.
This time I was smarter, I started with rolls, sushi, and sashimi and only then proceeded to the crab legs department.
The food presentation is great and everything was fresh and tasty. Service was great and it definitely added to an already pleasant atmosphere.
Besides sushi and seafood in general, there are steaks, hot dishes, noodles, veggies and some great desserts.
Draft beers are 50% if ordered after 8pm. For $28 per person you eat as much as you can, and it doesn’t include drinks and tips. I know it may seem a bit expensive, but actually it’s a pretty standard price in Hawaii. Nothing is cheap in Paradise.

Todai Restaurant: Go Todai
The best sushi restaurant in town! This restaurant has many selections of Japanese sushi. If you are not up to eating sushi, then go for Chinese! They have that, too! Todai is a buffet restaurant that offers an array of seafoods- crabs, shrimps, oysters, clams, seaweeds, tuna fish, lobsters, octopus, etc. It's all you can eat restaurant!
When you go to Honolulu and it's so happen that it's your birthday, just show your driver's license and you will get a free meal!
Favorite Dish: The crabs and the shrimps are sweet and delicious. These are cooked perfectly!

Sushi Sasabune: militant sushi
Have you ever been thrown out of a restaurant for ordering something that offended the chef? Sushi Sasabune has a sister restaurant in Los Angeles where it has been rumored to happen. I don?t think it would ever happen at this location, but who knows. Just don't go ordering any California rolls to be on the safe side.
I'll say that it is pretty expensive here, but you do get great sushi an and interesting experience in return for your money. The fish is top notch and of a higher quality. I suppose the most interesting part is that the chef decides what you will eat the whole time you are there. Basically it is a set menu and they will tell you exactly how you should eat it (with soy, without, this first, this next?). I did notice that they seemed to prepare different menus for Japanese visitors and Western guests. When you are finished with the food they have prepared for you, they will ask you if you want to keep going, which you can until you feel you are finished.
Genki Sushi: The Local's choice for sushi
Genki Sushi is hands down the local choice for a seafood restaurant. There are numerous locations, but there are two which you might be closest to if you are visiting. Once is right outside of Waikiki and the other is in The Ala Moana Center.
Not only is the food good here, it is a fun place to check out. I would always take people who were visiting me to Genki and they always got a kick out of it. The center of the restaurant is one long conveyor belt that carries numerous different sushi items around. You just reach up and grab what you want and stack up your used plates.You eat as much as you want and when you are done, someone will come count your plates and give you a bill. There are different colored plates with different prices set per color.
Genki is the best place to just get crazy and eat as much sushi as you want.
P.S. Be afraid of natto. It's NASTY! Yuck.

Banzai Sushi @ Northshore Marketplace: Good sushi & GREAT AMBIENCE
Food is good, GREAT ambience with some english music ( when you were expecting japanese ), affordable rates, good selection.
The ambience is the BEST! Especially on a nice sunny day. I feel like I can just sit outside on the little pillows and see the world go by!
The restaurant owner is Japanese, but speaks extremely good english!
Favorite Dish: Can't remember the name of what I ate, but it was good.
