Entrees at Tanaka of Tokyo come with several side dishes.

Tomorrow is the autumn equinox, the birth of fall. Is it your birthday as well? If so, then now is the time to head down to Tanaka of Tokyo East. The restaurant is offering a free Steak and Shrimp Dinner to anyone born in September.

“We are looking forward to being able to help celebrate as many birthdays with our guests this month,” says Hiroshi Lamansky, executive vice president and COO, Tanaka of Tokyo Restaurants Ltd.

Like all of Tanaka of Tokyo’s entrees, this special birthday Steak and Shrimp Dinner comes with a delicious array of items.

“Tanaka of Tokyo offers complete nine-course meals,” Lamansky says. “Each entree is accompanied by a salad, shrimp appetizer, vegetables, white rice, pickled vegetables, Japanese green tea and dessert. Our menu starts at $24.95, and we have a wide variety of steak, seafood and combination dishes to choose from.”

To redeem the special birthday offer, you must book a reservation date in the month of September, mention the September Birthday Special, and present your ID to your server.

This special cannot be combined with any other offer. One free meal per party, and everyone needs to order a complete meal. The offer is only valid at Tanaka of Tokyo East, located at Ohana Waikiki East Hotel.

“Dining at Tanaka of Tokyo is great for families, celebrations, or any casual get together,” says Lamansky. “We also have a keiki menu that starts at $14.50, provide coloring books, fish crackers, and keiki utensils and cups.

We offer various monthly promotions that we announce on our Facebook and Instagram pages, and encourage our guests to take advantage of these special deals.”


According to executive vice president and COO Hiroshi Lamansky, Tanaka of Tokyo’s Fried Rice ($4.75) is one of the “most popular side dishes.” For this interpretation of the local favorite, rice, egg and vegetables are teppan grilled at your table. “Many of our chefs have their own unique ‘fried-rice show,’ which adds to the experience,” Lamansky says.
