Whether you're a guest at the Hilton Waikoloa Village or a local looking to indulge in fresh Japanese cuisine in a relaxing, yet chic environment, Imari is the place to be. With its authentic decor, including a Koi pond, Imari provides a dining experience perfect for a romantic night out, a business dinner, or spending time with the family.
Imari is most popular for its Teppanyaki dining (it is the only one on the Big Island), so reservations are highly recommended. Teppanyaki is where guests are seated together around a table that features a wok-type cooking surface in the middle. Each table is assigned a personal chef that cooks the dinner in front of the guests. Unlike some other Teppanyaki restaurants, this is not comedic entertainment, yet a more traditional style of cooking.
The menu includes items such as Filet Mignon and Lobster ($75) to Shrimp and Chicken ($42) or Vegetables ($28). Dinners include edamame, miso soup, tsukemono, Imari salad, stir fried vegetables, and white or brown rice. "Inside Out" sushi rolls are also available.
For guests wanting a more intimate setting, a traditional dining room is also available. Private parties can also book the Tea House room for a secluded meal surrounded by a Koi pond. If sushi or sashimi is what suits you, take a seat at the sushi bar for fresh hand-rolled delicacies.
