When you want authentic Japanese cuisine with a touch of history, Tokyo Tei is the place you want. Kyutaro Kitagawa opened the Maui establishment in 1935, providing a full-service Japanese restaurant with a family atmosphere. Four generations later, the Kitagawa family continues to provide the residents and visitors of Hawaii with exceptional Japanese fine dining.
You can even revel in the fact that you can sit and have your shrimp tempura in the same dining area where John F. Kennedy once sat for a luncheon in 1959.
The traditional Japanese recipes at Tokyo Tei have been passed down through the family. Visit the restaurant and take advantage of their lunch specials, which include the Teishoku Special—a pre-set meal that includes miso soup, koki, and hot tea—or select from other lunch entree options like sweet and sour pork, beef cutlet, or roast pork with gravy. Fresh sashimi is bought and sliced daily to give you the ultimate Japanese cuisine experience. Every meal is prepared and plated by the expert chefs at Tokyo Tei to provide a visual feast while satisfying your craving for Asian fare.
Voted as "Best Japanese in Maui" by Maui Time, Tokyo Tei is an institution that has stood during the greatest moments in history.
