If you’ve never been to Tanaka of Tokyo, you need to book a reservation right away. This Teppanyaki Steakhouse has been voted Honolulu’s best for consecutive years by Honolulu Star-Advertiser, serving up sizzling steak and seafood with style in three different Waikiki
locations. Teppanyaki style is sure to entertain, with fresh ingredients cooked right at your table, but Head Chef Mikey Kidnay explains, “it’s not just the food or the ambiance, it’s the experience and interaction between the guests and the chef. Chefs here train for years and each has his own special tricks and techniques, while serving some of the most exceptional rib-eye, lobster and scallops available.” We couldn’t resist asking Chef Mikey to share
his signature move, which included skillful, ambidextrous, sleight-of-hand dexterity that’s impossible to describe. Every entrée is served with finesse, flames and flavor, with a side of salad, grilled shrimp, Teppanyaki vegetables, steamed rice, miso soup, pickled vegetables, green tea and dessert. It’s a dining experience that creates memories for a lifetime.
