Great location in the historic downtown of Charlotte Amalie. But what you get you can get easily at your home in Continental US too. No reason to travel to USVI. The Hummus was definately not very oriental.

Hahaha...Couple of things my friends.. 1/ Hummus has not EVER been Oriental...As most people know it's Middle Eastern..so maybe you thought it was Chow Mein?? 2/ And now as far as no reason to travel to the USVI..3.5 Million people a year come here because 1/ Hands down the best beaches in the world ( Conde Nast) 2/ Clear turquoise...

Right along the water way location of tourist area. Local shops have everything you could want. Restaurant has Wi-Fi, areas under shade, and great food and drink. Favorite of ours was the Pathfinder drink. Two of those and you can't find the path back to your ship. Can see the ship from there! Nice food selection and very tasty. Owner... More

Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere, super great staff that makes you feel very welcome. Pork tacos are to die for, and the bbc best on the island, can't wait to return to my favorite place on the island.

We had a nice smoothie type beverage at this location as we were interested in the free wifi the bar/resto offered. Conveniently located on the street opposite Charlotte Amalie Cruise Port and easy to locate. Drinks were Daiquiri style and Slushy type. Tasted good on a hot day! Wifi was working well.

. . . in a great location! It's really easy to like this place. The staff is amazing (especially the young lady who was 8 1/2 months pregnant!) and the drinks were exactly as I've learned to expect on St. Thomas! Great harbor views, & nice mix of locals & tourists.

It was kind of delicious, although one dish was served with raw chicken and had to be sent back. Check your chicken!

Wandered in on a Sunday afternoon to watch some football. Ran into two of my co-workers, so it became an instant party. Evidently, this is a cool place to come after work. Now I know. I had a pina colada with an extra rum shot ($8.50 + $1) and both my co-workers recommended the fish tacos indepently of one another.... More

Stopped by Big Kahuna's for a quick beer on our way back to our cruise ship. We got so much more than we expected! The beer was cold, the food was great, but the service we got from a bartender from Wisconsin, Brianna, was the best we have ever had. For those that do not understand the work ethic of... More
