Gochi Grill to Open in Downtown Honolulu

Chefs John Iha and Sean Uyehara have teamed up to open Gochi Grill in Downtown Honolulu (the Remington College Building).

They will be offering classic, local-style comfort food that most of us grew up eating, but "fancier" than you'd typically get at home or elsewhere.  And in the case of Gochi Grill, "fancier" simply means using different, sometimes unexpected ingredients, to create unbelievably delicious food.

Corned Pig

Gochi Set - Miso Salmon, Chicken Teriyaki, Fried Noodles, Tofu Salad, Sushi

Tuna Sandwich

Roasted Chicken Kale Salad

Chicken Katsu

Sauteed Opah


I was blown away by how much I enjoyed Chef John's interpretation of classic, home-style cooking.

It will be difficult to ever eat "plain" meatloaf with gravy and mashed potatoes again after eating Gochi Grill's Mealoaf with truffle mushroom gravy and loaded baked potato croquette.

The Gochi Set included a variety of dishes that did not disappoint (I especially loved how flavorful the Chicken Teriyaki was, and the Fried Noodles were so tasty!). 

The Chicken Katsu, served with a wasabi cocktail katsu sauce, was some of the best I've had anywhere.

I also really liked the Kalbi, which was served with a Lemongrass Chimichurri. 

Whether it's a Tuna Sandwich with Kizami wasabi aioli, a Roasted Chicken Kale Salad with a nori vinaigrette, or Sauteed Fish with a scallion mushroom sauce, Chef John adds a variety of elements to fancify a typical plate lunch - and it works!

And fear not for those with a sweet tooth, because they will have a few sweet options as well:

PB & Banana Bread Pudding

Blueberry Panna Cotta
 The Grand Opening is set for June 4!

  1. Went there today and got the Gochi Lunch Set. The grilled chicken was very good, the salmon was a bit too undercooked for my taste. The rest was just ordinary. However,getting to the dessert, the bread pudding was the bomb. Delicious! Would go back for the dessert.
