The Edge by Tamura’s-Closed 11/2017

The Edge by Tamura’s in Kaimuki was a must try for me. Reasonable prices and good food. I called (808) 732-3340 to make reservations for the Ladies at 5:45 on a weekday. We parked at the municipal parking lot behind the restaurant (25 cents for 20 minutes).

I ordered the Kataifi Scallops ($15) and the Mushroom Brioche ($9). Others in our party ordered the lamb, onion oxtail soup, rib eye, and Parmesan sweet potatoes. My eating buddies shared their food so I got a chance to taste the lamb, rib eye and sweet potato fries.

The sweet potato fries came out first and they were excellent…crispy but not hard and just delicious. Next came the Nalo Mushroom Brioche which were two slices of Brioche bread with a creamy sauce chock full of mushrooms. I was full after eating this dish and had the scallops coming.

The scallops were a disappointment to me. They were small, stringy and chewy. I found the mashed sweet potatoes pasty with very little flavor. The ladies raved about the lamb and rib eye. In fact, one person in our party ordered another lamb to go.

Although the service was a little slow at first, our server was very pleasant and helpful.

Would I return? A solid yes. The Edge is located at 3605 Waialae Avenue. Reservations are highly recommended as the restaurant is quite small and can get very busy.
