Kikuya is one of our regular stops when we’re in Kaneohe around dinner time. This is where we ate this past weekend when we were hanging out on the windward side.
Kikuya offers a good variety of Japanese food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is very – how shall I put it – family style…maybe old school…definitely casual, compared to some of the other Japanese restaurants we go to.
As I was saying, we’re normally here for dinner – typically after a day of fishing on the windward side. You’d see us trying to pull ourselves together in the car so that it didn’t look like we just rolled up off the beach. But today we were in Kaneohe for an afternoon of shopping so no primping in the car needed before going in for lunch.
The specials above come with miso soup and tsukemono.
I had the misoyaki butterfish/tempura combo and he had the chicken katsu/tempura combo.
Both combos were very good. As a note, if you are looking for a miso butterfish with strong miso flavoring, this might not be the choice for you. This reminds me more of a plain fried or grilled butterfish…which I personally love. With a squeeze of lemon, it is so melt in your mouth delicious!
