With the exception of the wreathing masses that will eat any junk food put in front of them, Hawaii is certainly not regarded by the savvy diner as a culinary destination by any means. It is always a challenge to find even passable food and the prices are always high for any restaurant no matter what the quality. With this in mind, we were so happy to find this down-to-earth sushi place, Tokkuri-Tei on Kapahulu quite a few years ago. My wife is Japanese, so I trust her search and find methods. We have tried other more elaborately decorated sushi bars but when it comes to sushi, in the end result nothing really matters but the freshness and quality of the fish. In this department the owner, Kazuhiro Mitake, who personally makes his own selections every morning from the fish market, always comes back with the best quality fish. Besides his great knowledge of aquatic vertebrates he also knows a great deal about sake and offers a large selection of noteworthy bottles.

It is advisable to book a seat at the sushi bar or even the tables as it can become very busy on most evenings.
