There’s a reason Stripsteak received the Best of Award of Excellence Wine Spectator 2019 and Hale ‘Aina 2019 Awards as one of the top three best steaks in Hawaii. Yes, it’s a steak house but it is so, much more. The vibe is a unique blend of Americana and Asian influence, and the top chef, Michael Mina’s one of a kind flair. The menu is an unexpected, eclectic combination of seafood, steaks, and specialties all created with ingredients that are all sourced fresh from the Island.

The Chilled Lobster Tacos are extraordinary. Caviar anyone? Yes, please. The Imperial Golden Ostra Caviar is, well, imperial. Here’s an insider tip…If you haven’t tried foie gras, or are a big fan, Chef Mina’s take on this French classic is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. 

You’ll want to start with an out-of-this-world appetizer. Share and sample different flavor combinations with your party. The Sesame Shrimp Toast with Japanese Milk Bread and ginger aioli or the Octopus Kusiyqki with Kaffir Lime Yogurt tops our list. Yes, they have Octopus and it is delicious!
