A Hawaiian local recommended me this restaurant and I’m so glad I decided to give it a try. Super good food and drinks! The ambiance is perfect for families, couples, or friends gathering! Highly recommend.
Absolutely the best meal I had in Honolulu. The potato salad was so delicious. Loved the local veggie tempura and the grilled pork. Great service as well.
Heard a lot of great things about this place and we finally got to experience it ourselves. Fantastic food, sake and service. Shareable plate make this a perfect spot for groups who like to pick on a lot of delicious dishes. Everyone we ate we enjoyed. Check them out if you’re in Waikiki.
Atmosphere is a mix between corner bar and nice restaurant, great feel. Service was too notch. I had a lemon sour, so good and strong! Also had the tuna cutlet plate with kale, the dressing on the kale is the star! Definitely will be going back to try more items.
Decided to do a staycation with my friend. We found Zigu and what a gem! The draft beer was so fresh and the food was delicious. We tried the edamame, fresh tofu salad, takoyaki, and spicy cold soba. There was just enough spice, allowing for the taste of the soba to come out. We didn't have reservations but were lucky enough to sit within 10 minutes. The staff were wonderful-- friendly and quick! We'll definitely be back!!
Izakaya Eats Take Two🇯🇵
Zigu was our second izakaya on our trip and, admittedly, the super convenient location in Waikiki combined with solid reviews were the main draw
Zigu is known for their soba noodles and they have several varieties alongside a great izakaya selection
We liked all our choices, including some great specials, but really loved the soba and ordered multiple times
We make soba at home often but the feedback is this one is better!
The only miss was the French fries which were reheated and stale

📍Zigu (Waikiki, HI)
Nice outdoor patio area to safely eat during these times (be sure to request outdoor seating on your Rez). Tables are spread nicely and precautions are taken. A little pricey but you get Great food and service!
We had a wonderful time, food & service, watching the kitchen staff & enjoying the happy hour while being entertained by the wait staff - we were seated by main wait station so had front row seats to the frontal cortex of the operation. There is an awesome outdoor seating area as well! Very wallet friendly w/ delicious Japanese cuisine! In the heart of Waikiki...
