I have been a lover of Yanagi Sushi for well over twenty years.  It is an institution among Sushi lovers in Honolulu and has not changed one bit over the centuries.  Consistently good food and service.  On this visit we enjoyed the Lunch Menu which did not include much Sushi.  See link below for a visit to the Sushi Bar.  We sat at one of the booth type tables in the back and were greeted by a very friendly waitress who engaged our table with compliments about how beautiful my Daughter was throughout our meal.  I explained that me and my Daughter are twins and thanked her :).   
As water was poured and drink orders taken a small plate of appetizers consisting of Shrimp, Bean Sprouts and Edamame for each of us was placed on table.  Along with this was a plate of Pickled Cabbage and Ginger.  These were nice little snacks that fueled my hunger.  The menu at Yanagi is quite large and when you go through the menu there are dozens of things you want to order.  This is the perfect place to visit to eat family style to enjoy a wide variety of dishes.  I went with the Special Combination Lunch Set Menu ($22.45 Plus $3.00 upgrade for Butterfish)  The meal started with a nice crisp salad with a Thousand Island type dressing.  This was followed by a steaming hot cup of Miso Soup that was so delicious.  I left a small amount of soup in my cup and my Daughter finished it off after finishing all of her soup.  The Butterfish Miso-yaki was incredible.  The light buttery moist fish was cooked to perfection and charred on the skin.  This would make a kid that doesn't eat fish become a fish lover in minutes.  Highly recommend the Butterfish here.  Along with the Butterfish I enjoyed Chicken Teriyaki.  The Chicken was moist and full of Teriyaki Flavor.  Really delicious with the perfectly cooked rice.  My Daughter ordered a Three Piece Combination Lunch ($27.45 Plus $3.00 upgrade for the Butterfish.  She finished the Butterfish in what seemed liked seconds after devouring an entire California Roll.  She was getting full but was able to finish off the Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura with a little help from Mom and Dad.  The Donburi Unagi Don ($25.95) was served in an attractive Japanese box and when opened revealed two large filets of tender Teriyaki glazed Eel with rice.  Everyone at the table said that this dish was satisfying and delicious.  Yet another happy experience at Yanagi Sushi.  You really cannot go wrong here.
