For a different take on Japanese food, visit us at Waioli Grill & Cafe in Kapahulu, HI. Our menu is designed and created by a chef with more than 20 years of experience in Japanese cuisine and cooking styles, specializing in the teppanyaki style for cleaning and cooking meats, ensuring flavor and freshness in every bite.
Unlike the traditional izakaya, we designed our Japanese food menus around the concept of New American cuisine with a Japanese twist. Our healthy lunches are served ichiju sansai style—meaning one soup and three sides—providing balanced, customized nutrition tailored to your tastes. Think of it as a classier take on traditional plate lunches, full of the freshness and flavor only found in Japanese cuisine.
For dinner, this healthy Japanese cafe becomes a cozy bistro, serving fresh fish, seasonal classics, and teppanyaki style meats. Bring your girlfriends, get a bottle of wine, relax, and enjoy everything Japanese food has to offer. Serving all of Honolulu, we are your flavor destination.
