Kazoku Japanese Restaurant | Great Kapolei Sushi Dining

There is nothing finer that receiving an unexpected gift from a past client. This client was actually the client that sent in a beautiful letter to our Honolulu Board of Realtors to nominate me for the Aloha Aina Realtor® Award and also a three time client within the past year and a half.

Long story short I opened a letter the other day and lo and behold ....

a Kazoku Japanese Restaurant gift card was inside!

Located in Kapolei (otherwise known now as the ‘Second City') at 338 Kamokila Blvd,, Ste 102, Kapolei, HI  96707 (phone:  674-8844) on Oahu, Kazoku Japanese Restaurant (and sushi bar) proved to be wonderful dining for a big lunch before shopping on Christmas Eve.


I had a mouth watering cooked to perfection  sizzling rib eye steak platter (smoking hot!) and we shared an array of sushi and appetizers off the rolling sushi bar as well.  My husband had a bento style dinner with tempura scallops and Ahi  Katsu  (a bigeye or yellowfin tuna and can be eaten raw...or cooked like in this case lightly breaded and deep fried and chopped into bite sized pieces).

Good food, great service and a family atmosphere.

Kazoku Japanese Restaurant ...

Japanese cuisine and sushi at its finest.

Sally, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and from the look of things you had one wonderful pre shopping Christmas Eve lunch! That is very cool you got a gift certificate from your client. Just adds to what we already know, you are one of the best!

Andrea: It was so unexpected...but so my client.  He is so thoughtful and appreciative and calls me every once in awhile to say ...hey, I haven't called you in awhile and I was going through my phone book...lol.

Thank you all for popping by! William/Lynda...it was the Aloha Aina Realtor® Award not Realtor® of the year :)  I was honored indeed! 

Each December at the Honolulu Board of REALTORS® Holiday General Membership Meeting ten winners are announced. These winners are REALTORS® who have gone above and beyond in service to their clients and who maintain the highest ethical standards.

As for the restaurant....YUMMY!
