Pizza Hanalei is no longer in business. We asked around and they closed up a few months ago. So there is only one pizza choice in town at Tahiti Nui.

We wanted pizza one night while staying at the Westin, so we headed out to try Pizza Hanalei. Glad we did. It was delicious! The sauce has a red wine base, and the crust is made with coconut water… all the ingredients are organic.. This is NO Pizza Hut so don't come looking for the $10 special … these are... More

This pizza may be some of the best I have ever had. My husband picked it up and said it was an amazing family run business as well. We have tried to mimic the crust with no luck.

I guess we were just unlucky based on the other positive reviews we've seen but my husband and I each had a slice of a different type and we both disliked our pizza. To be clear, we did not order a fresh pizza. We bought slices, since it was later in the evening. I ended up throwing most of mine... More

Coconut water in the dough? Maybe it was what made one of the best pizza crusts I've ever had. Thin, crisp, light yet able to support the toppings and brushed with a wonderful garlic olive oil mix. Sublime. The main guy was passionate about toppings and his creations. At $4.25 a slice it is pricy so for two people get... More

You have to feel good when you walk in a small joint, and it's clean with good music playing. The guy rolling and tossing the pizza is engaging in friendly conversation with folks while he works. Then the woman taking your order also is friendly. You see the fresh ingredients. Finally, when your mouth is watering, you are smiling when... More

Next time you are in Hanalei, on the north shore of Kauai, and you really, really need to have pizza, then this small, local pizza joint will do. There isn't anything that stands out about the place other than it really does reflect the laid back attitude and atmosphere that makes Hanalei such a great place to chill out. The... More

Yes, the seafood on Kauai is great. But every now and then you need some variety. And this pizza is a great alternative. There is seating inside for only a few people, but you can eat outside at a few table in the shopping center. So it's not a "fine dining experience", but the pizza is great. It's fairly thin... More

Good pizza. The base of these pizzas are exceptional. Friendly service. Not much atmosphere inside, but everyone just sits outside and enjoys the relaxed atmosphere of the town. Just remember to get there early. Last orders taken at 8:30, unless they decide to close early and then last orders are taken at...

If you are longing for a pizza and you just happen to be on the North Shore, you got to stop and have a pizza at Pizza Hanalei located at Ching Young's Village. It's better than most of your well known pizza chains in the mainland. If you like pork, try the Wild Pig with kalua pork. It adds a... More
