Restaurant Suntory Restaurant Review: The best restaurant in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Suntory welcomes a cosmopolitan clientele. While the signature of the elegant blond-wood restaurant has long been the teppanyaki, executive chef Nobuyaki Aoyana has put emphasis on the sushi bar. Sushi chef Don Char makes equally traditional sushi as well as innovative modern maki. Try some ultra fresh chu-toro or salmon marinated in brandy and dill. As for the teppanyaki, a standout is the pepper steak with whiskey-mushroom sauce, especially when the chef crisps the rendered trimmings and serves them with grilled garlic. Lunch specials such as upside-down salmon ikura (roe) donburi and maguro-zuke donburi (marinated tuna sashimi over rice) make Suntory a midday bargain.
