Another place my family would frequent mostly to see Hawaiian acts. I remember seeing Hawaii's answer to Kool and the Gang-THE KRUSH. I also saw glamrock band Jet Boy there in the late 80's or 90's?

My family used to go to this restaurant frequently for the Hawaiian shows during the 1960's. We did eat at the Teahouse once and I tried the Sukiyaki. The Japanese waitress talked me into putting raw egg on it and telling me the rubbery things I was eating was Octopus. I told her not to tell me any more! It was a great experience!

Our family went to this restaurant many times in the 60's. I took my dates there in the 70's. I have so many fond memories of this place. We almost always ate in the Tea House. They had a magnificent skewered beef & I would love to have the recipe.
