In the days ahead, with most of Oahu hunkering down, many islanders will still find themselves in need of delicious, satisfying meals they don’t have to cook in their own kitchens.

Thanks to Tanaka of Tokyo, a small but exciting selection of discounted entrées will be made available for takeout each day, proving that social distancing need not always include complete self-deprivation. Prices on the special menu represent a 40 percent discount over Tanaka’s regular prices.

“We’ll be open for takeout between 5 and 8 p.m. at all three of our locations,” says Bo Tanaka, corporate general manager of the trio of Oahu restaurants. “Our OHANA East location will do curbside pickup for takeout orders as well.”

The special menu, available through March 31, includes something to please every appetite. So delicious it bears the family name, The Tanaka Sirloin ($22.95) is an 8-ounce center-cut Certified Angus sirloin steak that’s cooked to perfection.

At $21.95, the Salmon Steak is a tasty option, grilled with a touch of butter. The Shrimp, specially priced at $19.20, are sautéed and flambéed for added flavor. And if you’re hungering for Lobster, Tanaka of Tokyo can provide you with a takeout order, grilled and served in its shell with butter and lemon, for just $28.50.

Other choices include Chicken Teriyaki ($16.05), Filet ($25.50), Ribeye Steak ($23.85), Scallops ($20.55) and succulent, fl avorful Wagyu, at just $45.30.

White rice and salad are included with each plate, and you may add Tanaka’s ono Fried Rice to your order for just $3.15. Takeout juice and soda are also available.

Customers may come into the restaurant for pickup at the West and Central locations, according to Tanaka, who adds that validated parking will be available at the Central location.

“If all goes well, we plan to reopen for dining in on April 4!” she adds.

In the meantime, though, it’s nice to know where to find a truly magnificent takeout meal.
