Japanese in Mauna Lani Resort Area

Chef Norio Yamamoto left his namesake restaurant at the Fairmont Orchid to launch his own izakaya (Japanese pub). It's a looser, cooler place, where the menu ranges from classic nigiri sushi and tuna tataki (tuna seared and seasoned with ginger) to sizzling plates of kimchi stir-fried pork loin and teriyaki chicken. You'll want to make reservations.
