Kenichi Pacific

Japanese in Keauhou Resort Area

Ignore the mall setting. Just savor the beautifully presented Pacific Rim fusion cuisine including tender miso black cod, Hawaiian ono (white-fleshed wahoo) topped with a cloud of ponzu (Japanese citrus sauce) and macadamia-nut-encrusted lamb. Sushi and sashimi cuts are fresh and generous. Happy hour (4:30pm to 6:30pm daily) brings half-price sushi rolls and drinks (hello, sake!) to the bar.
