Don't usually go to Waipahu for lunch but got an invitation and I was there.  Entered Kunio to find a little gem of a Japanese restaurant in a busy strip mall across from the Waikele Outlet Stores.  We were greeted and seated around 11:00 am while the place was empty.  By noon the restaurant was filling up very fast with couples, groups and families.  Hot Tea and Ice Water were on the table in minutes and we placed our order for the Funamori Party Boat ($127.80 for Four).  Pickled Cabbage was served first and it was a refreshing little small bite to get us started.  Then came a great cup of Miso Soup and a Salad with delicious Japanese dressing.  The Miso Soup and Salad made me think that this place may just be a great find.  After seeing the Party Boat arrive I knew it was a great find.
Wow...what a beautiful presentation of food.  They say we eat with our eyes and the Party Boat was a feast for the eyes too.  The Party Boat is definitely an eye catcher too as everyone in the restaurant was turning their heads and asking "what is that?".  That my friends is one mean ass plate of food for four hungry guys who love to eat.  I jumped on the Ahi Sashimi first.  It was fresh and melted like butter in my mouth.  Next up I went straight for the lobster that was cut into small pieces so it could easily be shared.  The Boat includes Drawn Butter for the Lobster and i poured it over the crustacean and enjoyed each bite.  Was not the sweetest Lobster around but it was good.  I worked my way around the boat trying the Teriyaki Ribeye, Pork Tonkatsu, Chicken Katsu, Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura.  All delicious.  I had to take a few brakes in between bites as I was filled to the max. I finished with Ahi and Shrimp Sushi.   Got to a point where I could not eat another bite from the Boat.  Enjoyed this meal immensely.  The four of us could not empty the boat and the waitress brought take-out boxes to take some home.
