I had seen this restaurant on TV (I think Phantom Gourmet) so I kept it on my food local bucket list. Finally made it there with my husband and daughter. It was good. We've never been to Hawaii so we weren't really sure what to expect. It was good, different, and interesting. I say give it a go... read more

We were looking for a place for a good quick lunch. We found Flat Waves online and it sounded good. It's a small place in a strip mall, nothing special to look at. But the food was exceptional!!! Absolutely delicious wraps. The sides were good too, all made there. We highly recommend and will stop there again for sure.

Newport is very wanting for good take out/delivery so we gave this one a wide berth- after ordering four times, it's a no go. Ordered a pork wrap, didn't get it, no pineapple although kulua, ordered brown rice got white; chicken salad order was four pounded 2" pcs of chicken, however, the romaine is fresh, delivery people congenial.

So happy they are open year round now. The pork is smoked in leaves on site, chicken prepared in house and shaved ice no different that what you'd see in Hawaii! Don't let the paper plate and relaxed atmosphere fool you, this is "casual gourmet food" of superior quality. Great to go, and they are fast if you can stop... More

Last summer, my husband and I visited Hawaii for our 25th anniversary. This summer, we missed Hawaii and looked up Hawaiian Food in New England. Our search brought us to Flat Waves Restaurant in Middletown RI. We shared Shrimp and Manga tacos and Kaluah Pig Quesadilla. Both were excellent! We also had shave ice and the texture was perfect.

I found this restaurant by accident. It's more of a take out than eat in restaurant, but they do have eat in accommodations, and I loved my meal. I had the Shrimp with brown rice and teryaki sauce. It was excellent.

As close to authentic Hawaiian as you can get! Meals are a great value and high quality for a quick service establishment. Everything is made to order and light/healthy. The staff is always pleasant and welcoming - it's great to frequent a business when the customer still feels valued and appreciated! North Shore Chicken is a favorite, as are the... More

We stumbled upon Flat Waves on a super rainy night. Great prices, friendly staff, and delicious food. Had the 3 meat to try more... Kaluah pork, chicken, and beef. Served with a pile of white or brown rice and a side (I chose fruit salad) for $15. Three sauces to choose from, couldn't decide, so they gave me all three.... More
