Ultimate Satisfaction yours at Kadena’s Super Restaurant

With the relatively long distance from downtown Naha, even from Ginowan and Chatan, Kadena hasn’t enjoyed always a reputation as one of the island’s best dining destinations. It is also true that it wasn't always easy to find good restaurants in the area and the quickest way to fill an empty stomach was to look up any one of a number of ubiquitous signs for say McDonald's or KFC.

However, the situation is changing. More and more, prime establishments are opening in Kadena and, in particular, there's one recently opened restaurant you can definitely add to your favorite dining list.

Last February saw the opening of The Super Restaurant, located on the third floor of the Navel Kadena Shopping Mall. As the picture of a crab on the sign of the restaurant indicates, plenty of fresh crab dishes are on offer at reasonable prices. The recommended crab dishes are Steamed or grilled Crab legs (¥580 for 170g), the Crab "Sisters" Set (¥2980 for two), and its companion the Crab "Brothers" Set (¥3880 for two) that are enjoyed with a very special sauce.

For those who prefer something other than crab, there’s a nice choice of fried and a la carte selections such as Diced Steak (¥680), Fried Shrimps (¥380), Fish Burger (¥380), at prices all of us enjoy seeing.

The restaurant’s interior is spacious and the combination of white walls and wood tables and chairs add to its airy and cozy atmosphere. There's a big open kitchen, where chefs in green and white uniforms busily work. The dining hall seats 320 and a stage with an excellent audio system is situated right in the center. The large windows are a great touch, as it allows diners a beautiful view of the ocean in the day time and if weather permits typically great sunsets can be seen most nights.

"The beautiful scenery is one of the things that we proudly offer our customers. Please enjoy the scenery as well as our meals," said Hironobu Kayano, the restaurant manager.

At the Super Restaurant, no meal would be complete without sampling a morsel of the live performances. The restaurant provides live entertainment seven days a week, and in order to please all its customers, it supplies a fabulous variety of music, from Japanese folk to American pops. Three shows are performed every night, at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30.

On Thursday nights, popular singing act "Ultimate Satisfaction" performs live. The four-member group of Kennie Smith, Chris Bell, Benhur Tan, and Kim Dawkins is one of the hottest acts on the island. With a repertoire of more than 1000 songs, from the Eagles to R. Kelly, Ultimate Satisfaction will leave you ultimately satisfied.

“We just focus on satisfying and making our audiences happy. That's what our group are all about, as our name says,” said group leader Kennie Smith. Ultimate Satisfaction will perform at the restaurant on May 6, 13, and 20.

** The Super Restaurant is giving away some complimentary dinner tickets to readers of Japan Update. Dinner tickets to the value of ¥1000 will be given to five lucky readers who send us a fax with your name, mailing address, and with either some comments, opinions, and/or suggestions to Japan Update. The tickets are valid after 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. (They cannot be used on Japanese holidays such as during Golden Week, from May 3 to 5.)

Directions: Take Route 58 and head for Kadena. When you see the Kadena Marina sign on your left (you'll also notice a statue of a Japanese man), slow down and look for the Navel Kadena Shopping Center sign. Turn left at the sign and simply follow the road that leads you to the mall. The Super Restaurant is located on the third floor of the building.
