Modern Take

January 9, 2014 | By Waikiki Magazine Team

For an elevated take on traditional Japanese cuisine with thoughtful preparation and presentation, look no further than Kaiwa. Conveniently located in Waikiki Beach Walk, Kaiwa serves teppan and sushi cuisine using fresh ingredients of the season in a sleek interior setting. It is a combination and harmony of east and west; Japan and Hawai’i; and traditional and contemporary that drives the menu and service here. Food is prepared to awaken all senses for a well-rounded, yet balanced experience—menu favorites include Pipikaula and Water-cress Hot Salad, Volcano Roll (Spicy Salmon, Cream Cheese, Asparagus, Cucumber and Hot Flying Fish Roe), Heart of Palm Tempura (locally grown) and Black Angus Prime Rib-eye Steak. Save room for dessert—the Chocolate Banana Crepe Flambe is heavenly. In additional to dinner service, Kaiwa is also open daily for lunch service. Kaiwa’s ultra-modern setting and menu complements the energy and urban side of life in Waikiki—it’s new-style contemporary Japanese food for today.
