What a mistake this place was!! The service was slow. There was only one waitress doing everything. Our soup bowl was half full and cold. Our dinner plates sat on the counter by the kitchen for about 10 minutes before we got them, so needless to say, they were cold as well. The food was too salty and did not... More

Very expensive price for bad food. No service, no smile. Interact machine broken. ATM machine broken. No customers at all. Wait delay very long even if the place was empty. Food tasteless, dry and burnt. waste of time and money. Disastrous experience...

What adds to the atmosphere at Kalalu is the live performances. However, they charge an extra $5 per person for the performers. This cost is understandable. But, what everyone should know is that this restaurant charges an extra 10-15% service fee on top of the $5 - a service fee that the restaurant does not warn customers ahead of time... More

the salad was not so fresh and swimming in dressing, but the fish was very good, I expected something more exotic, so if you do too, ask them to spice it up as they do for the carribean clientele.
