Very Good and Authentic

This place was a nice surprise. The food was very good and the service was fast and friendly. My husband grew up in Hawaii, and he thought it was very good! Only negative is we ordered the poke and it was very good, but over priced for the amount. We often order poke at restaurants and in... read more

What a great place to meet up with friends and have a good meal. We found it very relaxing and all 6 of us ordered something different and loved our choices. The lomi lomi salmon was excellent. Can't wait to go back on a Saturday and enjoy some live music.

More food is always more better so this place is the best for mass consumption of deliciously prepared Hawaiian dishes. Some tight seats like Invasion of Killer Tomatoes so choose wisely so you can get your over-stuffed selves out.

Best Kalua Pork on the mainland. If you find a better one, please let me know. My wife and I have tried other entres as well. We've never had a bad meal. Staff is always flexible about substitutions. Service is sometimes spotty in terms of speed but always friendly and accomodating. Restrooms could use some attention. Music on the weekends... More

I had a lunch combo. It included pot stickers, BBQ beef, orange chicken, white rice, and macaroni salad. The atmosphere is good, the service fine, and the price fair. Here's the lowdown on the food: The pot stickers were very tasty, BBQ beef was cold, orange chicken was excellent, white rice was blah, and macaroni salad only good for one... More

This restaurant is tucked in a side strip mall. It doesn't look like much from the outside. The inside, however, was a surprise. The island décor is appropriate and the restaurant feels inviting. The food was good. Service is slow as other reviewers mentioned. Go and relax; pretend you're on island time. Prices were very reasonable. A good place to... More

We hesitated at the exterior but entered a cozy, well-decorated, well-lit room with huge, rounded windows that don't show in front. LOVED our asian-fusion, Hawaiian menu and eats! No problem with service, which was welcoming--& portions were large. We split a great Mahi-Mahi dish of fish tacos and skewers of the award-winning bbq chicken. YESSS

Feel bad for this review but years of waiting to be served properly has brought me to it. Been eating here for years, LOVE the food & atmosphere that's why we come back & spend $$! But I am sick of the lousy service, I understand island time & all that hubby is an islander, but when I spend $50-100... More

Great food, friendly service, beer from kona-what else could you want? Well...maybe more sunshine and less record breaking 2014 rain! Get some Kalua pork and Loli Loli chicken and you will be thankful. Hawaiian ice tea was a change but beer from kona is a personal favorite. Son loves the pork sliders. Apparently, live music on some Saturdays.

Found this place by searching TA on line and saw it was just down the street from my hotel. A co-worker and I decided to give it a try and we were glad we did. We started with the Poo Poo Platter for two (at $8.95) and it was excellent! For the price I was expecting skimpy, but I was... More
