Chicken Katsu Bento ($7.99)

In 1972, Kozo Sushi opened its first store in Osaka, Japan. The fledgling sushi establishment filled a niche in the market, between an okazuya and a high-priced sushi bar. This innovative company soon expanded with locations throughout The Land of the Rising Sun.

Here locally, Kozo Sushi has four convenient locations on Oahu — one in Moiliili across the old Stadium Park and others in Kahala Mall, Pearl City and Pearlridge Center.

Sweet Chili Chicken Bento ($8.50)

Patrons of Kozo Sushi favor it highly because the stores unfailingly serve takeout rolls and other items that fit local palates with the taste and impeccable quality of sit-down restaurant fare, but at reasonable prices.

Additionally, the company permeates its top-caliber rice with a superb sushi vinegar blend. Kozo Sushi sells an array of combinations from large, popular party platters, handrolls, bento and more.


Chicken Katsu Bento ($7.99) is a plentiful meal that quickly can satisfy a hungry customer. This menu item has expertly cooked pieces of chicken katsu and sauce on a bed of rice. It is accompanied by inari sushi, California maki, shinko maki and a salad.

Another highly admired choice is the Sweet Chili Chicken Bento ($8.50). The dish provides a generous portion of delicious pieces of chicken in a delectable sweet chili sauce, and is also served alongside a salad and shinko maki.
