Our group of four enjoyed a butterfish dinner, vegetarian and non-vegetarian tempura dinners and a sushi dinner. Good quality and presentation, generous portions and moderate price. Off-street parking but limited spaces.

If you are a soba lover, this place is a must for you. Food is delicious and freshly made. My 89 year-old mother enjoyed it so much, we will bring her back again.

we were looking for the best soba on the island and ended up at Inaba. We frequent the location in Torrance California, so it was fun visiting the Hawaii location. The atmosphere and the music was exactly the same as in Torrance. The food tasted the same too, very good and refreshing.

I come here a few times a year, especially when I'm craving deliciously healthy and fresh Soba ( japanese buckwheat noodles) Recently they have expanded their space which is a real treat as it is always packed with people for lunch or dinner. You know when a certain ethnic restaurant is amazing, when 99% of the patronage are from that... More

After Matsugen's closing, Inaba is the best and the only soba restaurant in Hawaii. Very good food. Small restaurant so you may have to wait for tables, and food. But it's well worth the wait.

I-Naba in Honolulu has the best tasting Japanese food. English menu, the taste Japanese clientele savor – most of the customers are visitors from Japan so that says something. This restaurant is BYOB so load up and enjoy the ambiance while enjoying your meal. Nice desserts. I had the Tororo Zaru Soba and it was excellent. Great service, reasonable price,... More

My dining experience here reminded me of eating at Tokyo restaurants and being in Japan in general. The space is small, very clean and simply decorated. The soba noodles are divine, slippery, fresh and delicious. When you walk in, you can see a grinding mill that I am presuming is used to make the flour for the noodles. Our waitress... More

I've been on a soba kick lately and have been dying to try freshly made soba noodles but because nearly every Japanese restaurant in the states typically serves the pre-made and packaged variety it's been quite frustrating. I was ecstatic to find this place on my most recent visit to Hawaii as they serve soba noodles using hand-picked buckwheat brought... More

The soba and tempura is excellent. The soba is the focus of this restaurant and is served just as one would expect in Japan. In my opinion, they hve the best tempura in Honolulu.
