The best!

You get your money's worth and the food is delicious. The employees are very friendly. The only thing is seating is very limited and the people who are waiting for a table will stand behind you and hover over you. I wish there was outside seating available.

We ate in 5 places in less than 24 hours. This was by far the absolute best. We had the lobster spring rolls, kahuku chicken, kahuku shrimp, tacos, shrimp po' boy and treasure beef. It was all so good, simple and off the boat fresh. This is a must while on the island but be warned, when they sell out... More

If your looking for some REALLY good food, this is the place. But, be aware--it only has a couple indoor tables, the food is served on a styrofoam plate, you are going to look at the "drink center" with all the tubes etc. BUT the food is great. At peak dinner hours I would suggest ordering takeout, that way you... More

The building was surprisingly small when I walked up to it. It wasnt necessarily a bad thing, as it jived with the island feel of the food. I ordered a fish taco and my girlfriend ordered a taco with pork and pineapple. Both were great. The dragon sauces make the awesome tacos even better. The chicken sate appetizer was one... More

Thank you TripAdvisor for a great selection. This place is amazing. The staff is super friendly and the food is awesome. Better food than some of these very pricey restaurants on the island. We are going to go back again! Get there early as they close when they run out. You cannot go wrong with any taco!

Went here because of reviews, was not disappointed. Scallop po boy--first I ever had--was sweet and juicy, lightly free with crispy batter. Wife's oyster taco, great... Could not stop raving about tortillas. Granddaughter's Mac von cheese was velvety good. Hit the spot for a scrumptious lunch.
