New Member Profile: Baku

BAKU specializes in modern robatayaki cuisine, where the simple elements of premium cuts and open fire create wonderfully rich flavors. The dining experience centers on the energy of the open kitchen and BAKU’s custom-built, eight-foot robata grill; a design centuries old that is fueled by binchōtan, a specially-sourced charcoal made from Japanese white oak that burns at more than 800 degrees and gives meat and seafood an appealing smoky flavor.

Tradition is just the beginning however. Local kiawe wood is added into the mix infusing the food with layers of flavor rooted in the island surroundings, and recipes incorporate chef-driven creativity in the presentation and use of ingredients from Hawaii farms and local producers. BAKU also serves the highest quality sushi and sashimi and offers a meticulously curated beverage program featuring premium sake, international wines and craft cocktails aimed at complimenting the food.

The restaurant’s location boasts unmatched views – peering over the bustle of Waikiki’s main street, Kalakaua Avenue, and provides the only open-air, ocean view dining experience in the International Market Place. BAKU’s patio lounge is the perfect perch to pass an afternoon or have drinks and dinner with the setting sun, and the interior’s floor to ceiling glass brings in the beautiful Waikiki surroundings.

Robata means “around the fire,” and BAKU captures this essence – gathering friends, family and foodies for a dining experience that embodies simplicity and community.
