Hawaii Mom Blog: Fuji Sushi & Teppanyaki




January 3, 2024

Fuji Sushi & Teppanyaki

Thank you to our sponsors for the complimentary dining experience! 

Fuji Sushi & Teppanyaki recently opened in Pearlridge Center, offering sushi, teishoku, and teppanyaki style dining 7 days a week! Hawaii Mom Blog was invited to check out this new eatery in Central Oahu.

Fuji Sushi & Teppanyaki is located in the space formerly occupied by Monterey Bay Canners. Mention that name and pretty much all locals will know where the restaurant is. It's located outside of Pearlridge Center, overlooking Sumida Watercress Farm. 

When you first enter, you come across the spacious teppanyaki room. I like how there is a lot of space in between each of the tables, which can seat up to 8 people comfortably.

There is also a sushi bar and regular dining room seating towards the back of the restaurant,

We ordered dishes from different parts of the menu so that we could give you an idea of the kinds of dishes you'll find here.  

From the appetizer (kitchen) menu: Furikake Chicken

From the Appetizer (sushi bar) menu: Truffle Tuna Garlic rayu

From the Sushi Bar: the Pacific Sushi Boat (15 piece nigiri sushi, 15 sashimi, rainbow roll, samurai roll)

From the Sushi Bar: Oyster Platter

From the Kitchen: Dinner Bento - Chicken Teriyaki/spicy tuna/Fried Oyster

And now for the main event - the HIBACHI combo! Each Hibachi entree comes with miso soup, tossed salad, flaming shrimp appetizer, Hibachi noodles, lightly seasoned hibachi vegetables, and steamed white rice. 

Our chef (named "Vicky") was very personable and put on a great show. 

No teppanyaki experience is complete without some fire, and Vicky did not hold back. 

We enjoyed watching Vicky skillfully cook our Hibachi meals right before our eyes. Once of the best things about teppanyaki style dining is that the food is always hot since it's served straight from the grill to your plate!

I really liked their mixed vegetables because it comes with a lot of greens (they include broccoli which is not served at other teppanyaki houses here).  I highly recommend upgrading your rice to garlic fried rice (if you're not afraid of carbs!).

IMHO, the items that we tried from the kitchen menus weren't anything extraordinary. I would definitely recommend the Hibachi (teppanyaki) and sushi. And try the Hibachi proteins with the "yum yum" sauce that comes with your meal - it's super yum yum!

Open daily (incl. most holidays!) for lunch and dinner,. 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM, and 4:30 PM - 10:00  PM.
