Order a bunch of takeouts for a meeting this morning. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Excellent taste and big servings. Almost all of us only ate half and took home the rest for dinner (LOL). ONO! They also have an area for eating in.

Was excited to go to Sugoi again. The last time we were here was about 4 years ago and I remembered their plate lunches being so generous and made to order, specifically their mochiko and garlic chicken. Service was great, very friendly folks at the counter, however this time the chicken was overlooked and very dry! Definitely not what I... More

I've stopped by Sugoi for plate lunches several times over the years to grab a plate lunch and haven't been disappointed. We were hungry for lunch during our last trip and were in the neighborhood, so we stopped by. Sugoi is located in a small two-story sort of strip mall-like complex in Kapalama. They may be a little difficult to... More

As soon as I learned about Sugoi, I was hooked. A friend of mine bought trays of their garlic chicken and sesame chicken for a gathering at their house and I just couldn't stop eating them. After that, I was going at least once a week for a few years. Originally, it was a pretty small place that only had... More

Sugoi's is known for their garlic chicken plates and they do have one of the better garlic chickens around. I prefer the spicy garlic chicken but it's not as spicy as you'd think it is. It has just a little bit of heat to add to the flavor profile. If you don't like garlic, then you might want to skip... More

My friend who is a local told me about this place and I am incredibly happy that I went here. The location is near the airport so it could be a good place to eat your first meal when you get off the plane. This place has the best gosh dang garlic chicken that I have ever had. I got... More

Went here for lunch recently as I met a friend I haven't seen for 15 years. The parking lot is packed so plan accordingly if you plan a visit. Place always as a long line. They have a decent dining room in which we ate. My buddy had a Mahi Mahi (fish) plate and I had a combo Mochiko and... More

If you enjoy garlic chicken, you will like theirs. I like it hot so I get the spicy garlic chicken. Beware that you will smell like garlic hours later so don't eat it if you have meetings in the afternoon. The only other drawback is that if you eat there, you will also have the greasy smell on your clothing.... More
