It's so cheap. That's what I have heard over the past few months when people try KatsuMidori Sushi Tokyo. With menu items starting at $1.00 and up, you would think this place must be horrible. But I was pleasantly surprised to find this brand new authentic sushi spot boats some serious fresh sushi delights. I am by no means a sushi connoisseur, I may think myself a poke connoisseur but not necessarily sushi. I am also the worst when it comes to ordering because I will be happy with cali roll and spicy tuna nigiri all night long.
Cue, this new spot hidden in the Hawaii Prince Hotel and you'll be in sushi heaven no matter your level of expertise. From ala carte, to set menu to rolls and more, this place is similar to a Genki Sushi in that you order from a tablet on the table and ala carte plates are fairly small. However the lunch sets are all $18.50 and include about 5 dishes for you to taste. You can also order the sushi assortments which range from $6 to $35 and are extremely generous in portion and quality. At the end of the day this is a great value for the price, but if you do go overboard and order a lot of things it can get a little pricey. If you just order one set or one cheap assortment the QUALITY and the service are really what puts this over the top.
Directions, enter the Hawaii Prince Hotel lobby facing mauka = turn right and walk past the escalators on the ground level. Head diamond head and eventually you will see the restaurant down the corridor and on your right hand side. The sushi chefs and staff are all very polite and from Japan. You will feel like you are literally in a hole in the wall sushi restaurant in Tokyo.
