Great lunch spot

I have never been disappointed at Kadena's. It is a place I might venture to try something a little different just because I like the way they cook. The location is tucked away, and easy to forget about and the ambiance is very basic, but every experience has been pleasant. Nice coffee options... read more

We tried to eat at Kadena's twice this week, for dinner. One night it was closed for a private function that had ended. The next there was a sign that they had ended evening hours, they now close at 5. Be forewarned.

My sister and I were looking forward to a leisurely, late lunch. The restaurant was not busy and we hadn't seen each other for some time, but the waitress came to our table asking for our order twice in about 2 minutes. We suddenly felt very pressured. Before we were done eating, she brought the bill and said we were... More

We ate there yesterday with four of our friends, we only hope that they had better food than we did. My husband had a pasta dish and he said it was cold and had no flavor, I had rice ronald and every time I do I never know if it is going to be over spiced or flat, yesterday it... More

This little out-of-the-way restaurant is tucked behind several large office buildings, but once you find it you won't be disappointed. My husband and I have eaten lunch there many times. The food is prepared from scratch on site and is fresh and healthy. If you want to splurge with a decadent dessert try the multi-layered carrot cake which is scrumptious.... More

I have dined at Kadena' three times, and I will probably not return. The food was pretty average and the atmosphere not super memorable. A few of my friends raved about the Kadena's Chicken, and I must say, that it was not something that I would rave about.

I knew the original owner of Kadenas when she opened the restaurant downtown on Front street. The food was fabulous and the place was always packed. Ever since the business was sold and then moved out to the Palmer complex, it has gone steadily downhill. I called for a take out lunch the other day, just for something quick. One... More

I'm sorry to write a 1 star review like this, but I am beyond angry at the owner(s) of this place. The owner(s) is/are dishonest and refuse to give refunds for food not received for takeout. On a road trip back to Canada this was our final dinner stop the night before, and my bf and I ordered 2 vegan... More

Kadena's is located in an office park in a octangular building. The menu is original and the food is prepared fresh on site. Good sandwiches and pastas with a good choice of meat and meatless entrees. The poppy seed run cake is a wonderful experience. My favorite cake anywhere. I wish I could tell you how good the other deserts... More

Good place for dinner, very quiet and can have a nice conservation without shouting. Lunch time is somewhat crowed but have great lunch specials.
