Whether you're local or a visitor, if you want to experience izakaya you need to dine at Kohnotori. The food is great; the atmosphere is casual and the prices won't break the bank. It is a must!!!

The Nabe here was so delicious, it made the cabbage taste so good. I like that they will bring more pork, vegetables and even more broth for your pot. The sake was delicious and we ordered a bunch of sides including the chicken wings, fried...More

Found out by accident! Was going to the restaurant that was there prior, which was definitely good too! Now it's Kohnotori! Am so happy! Still awesome food and service, and the honey toast... Oishiiiii!

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Hawaii. The food is great and the atmosphere is inviting and friendly. It is a small restaurant but exactly what you would expect from a traditional Yakitori/izakaya place. My friends and I go here often and every time we...More

The first thing you noticed was the care and skill exercised by the chef while doing the grilling at the bar. Once the food is done, it is served immediately and it beats any pre-done yakitori by kilometers! I personally enjoyed the liver very much...More

Small and casual like in Japan, this is a fun place if you like grilled foods. Easy ordering on a list that you fill out and they also have ramen. Try the quail eggs or chicken gizzards. My husband loved the tongue very tender.

My girlfriend had Kohnotori on her "to eat" list. First the place is tricky to find (behind the 7/11 from the street). It serves yakitori (skewered meat) with some exotic cuts: liver, heart, gizzards, chicken skin and the rest of the more vanilla cuts like...More

If you know what "yakitori" is, then you'd love this place. Yakitori is skewered meat cooked on a grill, and is very Japanese. The restaurant is an izakaya (Japanese for a restaurant where plenty of alcohol is served). Since the grill is right in the...More
