    This is a great restaurant across the street from Kapaa Sands. Make sure that you make reservations as this place is very popular. They have great sushi, fish and other Japanese food. This place is high energy and has a good mix of locals and tourists. Many local families celebrate special occasions at Kintaro.

    A short walk from Wailua Bay View where you have great food at a great price. They not only have the best Sushi try the Bali Hai Bomb...they also have the best steak. Make reservations as it is a busy place.

    A "neighborhood favorite", this Kapaa Japanese reels in "repeat customers" with "generous portions" of "inventive" sushi and sashimi and teppanyaki tables where you can see your "meal made by the chef"; while the rolls may not be for strict "purists" and waits are long "during the peak dinner hours", the "awesome" staffers who "treat you right" and "fun family environment" compensate.

    Great local hangout restaurant. In my opinion one of the best food values on the island. Fresh solid food and good service. Always packed though so make a reservation. http://www.yelp.com/biz/kintaro-japanese-restaurant-kapaa
