Nanzan GiroGiro

Nanzan GiroGiro is located near Ala Moana Center. They offer a kaiseki (multi-course Japanese dinner) which consist of 6 items. The restaurant has bar style seating and the kitchen is in the center. While you eat, you can watch the chefs and staff prepare your next course. The chefs and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. There are a few of them who also speak fluent Japanese.

If you plan to dine here, you must make reservations in advance. The kaiseki is $50 (dessert not included). If you want the dessert, it's $58. Their menu changes every month. For parking, they have a few spaces in front of the restaurant and some parallel spaces across the street on Pensacola.

One unique thing about this restaurant is that all the bowls and plates your food comes in are made by the owner. Some of the pieces are very detailed and photo worthy. There is a small gallery on the side that showcases more of the owner's work if you wish to buy them.
