Ever since Teishoku Restaurant opened three years ago, customers have been treated to the highest quality Japanese cuisine at reasonable prices coupled with stellar service.
The Japanese word teishoku translates to “complete set meals,” and Teishoku Restaurant offers just that as well as additional items and appetizer choices at its convenient location within the Kamehameha Shopping Center in Kalihi.
Diners at Teishoku rave about the butterfish, tempura and spicy ahi, just to name a few — the Misoyaki Butterfish is considered one of the best in Honolulu due to its extraordinary taste, price and quality.
“Lots of customers come to eat at our restaurant because of the Broiled Misoyaki Butterfish and delicious Japanese cuisine,” says vice president Jason Zhang.
Misoyaki Butterfish Teishoku ($13.95) features the sought-after butterfish marinated with Teishoku’s special misoyaki sauce. The meal also includes rice, miso soup, appetizer and salad.
Chirashi Don ($17.95) is a popular, alluring seafood assortment that comes with rice (one’s choice of white, sushi or brown rice), miso soup and fresh ahi, salmon, hamachi and ikura garnished with shiso and cucumber.
Ika Geso Karaage ($7.95) is a must-try appetizer as the calamari tentacles are deep-fried to golden brown perfection.
Customers can also earn discounts by using the Teishoku stamp card, as every $10 spent nets a stamp. Once the 16-stamp card is filled, guests receive a $10 discount on the next meal. Teishoku offers a Senior Discount for diners 60-and-over on Tuesdays.
DEEP FRIED DELIGHT
Those looking for tasty pupu are in luck with Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura ($11.95), which comes with two pieces of shrimp, sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot and green beans. Vice president Jason Zhang explains that the Teishoku Restaurant team prepares its tempura with a light batter before it is deep fried so it’s not too heavy, and customers can add shrimp and vegetable tempura udon for an additional $3.50.
