Kunio Restaurant

The other day I was craving Japanese food, so we went to Kunio Restaurant in Waikele.

Here are the appetizers, Miso Soup, and Tsukemono that came with our meals (I only ate the Miso Soup).

I ordered the Chicken Katsu and Vegetable Tempura combination plate.

The katsu was good, the tempura was okay.

DH ordered the Chicken Teriyaki and Teri Ahi. He said the chicken was really good (and it was--the sauce was very tasty), but the ahi was not that great.

The menu only has one keiki item on it, but it's $10.95! It includes chicken teriyaki, shrimp tempura, gyoza, rice, and dessert). We knew there was no way DS2 was going to eat even 1/4 of all of that, so we decided to just share our food with him.

The service was nice, but a little slow that day even though we got there early (10:30am) and the place was quite empty (only 2 other tables filled).

Also, compared to other Japanese restaurants, I think the price was pretty high for what we received ($17.95 for my combo, $19.95 for DH's combo).

The next time we go I'll stick to chicken (katsu and teriyaki) and I'm sure DH will try something other than the ahi...
