Tanaka of Tokyo West

You get a little of everything at Tanaka of Tokyo - great service, wonderful-tasting food, flying shrimp tails, and a volcano made out of onions with real flames coming out of it! One of the nice things about eating here, besides the exceptional service, is the freshness of the food. It's prepared right before your eyes and served directly onto the plate in front of you - how much fresher can it get? You are guaranteed a hot meal, every time you come here.



Tanaka of Tokyo is a teppankai restaurant, where all of the cooking is done in front of you by a skillful chef that can do more than just fry a steak on the grill.



Every entree comes with a salad ...


grilled shrimp ...


and grilled veggies (onions, mushrooms, green peppers).


The hubby and I split the super sized Certified Black Angus rib eye - it was tender and juicy, with a tad bit too much fat, but that's just the nature of a rib eye cut. Gotta take the good with the bad.


We also split a shrimp entree , thus creating our own shrimp and steak combo.




Check out this video of the flaming volcano. I wonder how much their workers comp and property insurance premiums are.



Every entree also comes with dessert - a scoop of Dave's Ice Cream, Hawaii's finest ice cream. I can't have anything but green tea ice cream at a Japanese restaurant, especially when it's made by Dave's.
