Good food!

They had delicious Hawaiian food and was surprised by the flavors! Though, I was disappointed in all of the plastic and styro-foam cutlery. Definitely would come back!

That means in my language it was very good. A little empty but it can do. If only it has good stuff that will make it the best

Love the curry and macaroni salad. My daughter loves the spam musubi. My other daughter loves the chicken katsu and shaved ice. They also have a chopped cabbage salad, I love that too. Atmosphere is nice. Parking is public parking a lil further down but we always find a space.

Walking into Shakas, though, and you'll realize that you're in a better place than Ono's or L&L. It's clean, has plenty of tables, and has a flat screen... More
