Sadly, this terrific asian themed restaurant has closed. It just didn't serve enough dinners to satisfy the corporate folks at the Grand Hyatt. I'm told it will be replaced by a "grab and go" type of set up with ready made sandwiches and salads. Great for the golfers, whose club house is in the same building, but a loss for... More

Closed a few months ago. One of our favorites so if you relocate, please post. Instead try Kalaheo Cafe,Josselins or Merrimans for great food and a taste of the islands.

Nice change of pace. Located at the Grand Hyatt Golf Club. This was our most reasonably priced meal of our trip to Kauai and we were very impressed with the food. There is also a shuttle back to the hotel, although the walk is not really very far.

Restaurant is part of the amazing Grand Hyatt Kauai property, however, we were disappointed in the food. We ordered the shishito peppers, shrimp Pad Thai, and mixed vegetables with tofu. The shisito peppers and mixed vegetables were mediocre but the pad thai was the worst we've ever eaten. Extremely dry and bland. The service and ambiance were great, but the... More

Was surprised how good it tasted, a bit like fusion with a mix of Western and Polynesian flavours. Ambience was chilled and staff were great.

Located on the Grand Hyatt Property this was a great option for dinner. the food is served family style and was very delicious. We tried a few different items on the menu and were pleased with the options, we also had the donuts for dessert and they were out of this world!!! Definitely worth the calories :)

The view from Yum Cha is great if you get there before sunset. I had a 6 pm reservation and was one of the only guests in the restaurant so I was seated by the back window and treated to a nice view of the mountains beyond the golf course until the sun set. The service and food were both... More
