Venue Info

Imanas Tei is an intimate bamboo-covered oasis serving some of the best Japanese fare in Hawaii, including traditional fried and grilled items like chicken katsu skewers, plus fresh sushi and sashimi. If you've got a sumo-sized appetite, check out the chanko nabe, a dish traditionally eaten by sumo wrestlers, which comes with a plentiful portion of warm, flavorful broth that cooks seafood, meat, and vegetables, all added at just the right times by your waiter. The ending is the best part, when you choose between udon noodles and zosui (a rice porridge with egg and shredded nori) to be cooked with the remaining broth.
