Best known for traditional Japanese cuisine, Teishoku Restaurant is your spot for delicious meal sets. Located in Kalihi at Kamehameha Shopping Center, guests can expect delectable fare served up in a casual setting for an affordable price. Having just opened last summer, the eatery already has catered to a wide range of locals and tourists alike.

The establishment stays true to its name by offering teishoku, which translates to complete meal sets with a main dish, appetizers, and rice, salad and miso soup. In addition to teishoku, the restaurant also offers sashimi, rolled sushi, curry, ramen and more.

A favorite from the sushi menu is Tempura Roll ($8.45), filled with palate-pleasing shrimp tempura, masago, cucumber and avocado.


Stop by Teishoku Restaurant for some scrumptious Teriyaki Chicken. For $12.95, diners will receive salad, appetizers, rice and miso soup in addition to their sweet-glazed chicken. According to vice-president Jason Zhang, the meat is grilled in Teishoku’s house special sauce, which is made by mixing shoyu (soy sauce), sake or mirin, and sugar. Then, ingredients such as sesame, ginger and garlic are added for the perfect amount of sweetness.
