Staying at Aulani. Walked across the street to the mall on recommendation. Do not expect a fancy vacation meal here. Similar to an American Chinese take-out. My family pretty picky and they all enjoyed the meal. Nice break from resort dining without driving or breaking the bank. Friendly service.

I wanted something inexpensive and found this place near the Disney Aulani Resort. The food was pretty decent, while not breaking the bank! I had the honey garlic chicken, which was very tasty, and the portion size was very nice. I definitely would recommend it even if it was not a very big place.

Expensive, bland, fast food with styrofoam containers and plastic utensils. Poor value, won't go back.

Do not eat here please. Menu looks very good but u don't get what u see. Everything is fried n definitely not fresh - it is frozen pre-prepared. Very greasy food. Rice was over cooked n so dry. We ordered 3 dishes - 2 looked n tasted the same. Such a waste of money - all u will get is... More

This food was gross! My family of 5 wouldn't eat the dinner. We wasted $100. I think the reason they are in business is visitors buy this one time and don't eat it again because they leave town. My 10 year old and 14 year old were making fun of the dinner. They said even the dogs wouldn't eat it.... More

This place is located across the street from the big Ko'Olina resorts. As far as Hawaiian BBQ goes, this place is edible, but mediocre. Went here on a recommendation from one of the hotel employees. Yelp reviews seemed positive so we gave it a shot. Note: The term BBQ, when preceded by the word "Hawaiian" doesn't mean ribs, steak, pulled... More

The name is misleading because everything is deep fried, nothing really barbequed, and the source of the meat is a mystery (my chicken dish did not look or taste like chicken). You get a lot of food for the price and we did not get sick but I recommend looking for someplace better.

This local restaurant serves up cuisine that is unique from most nearby restaurants, and because it is across the street from the JW Marriott Ihilani and Disney's Aulina Resourt, it is very convenient. The service was good, but consider this restaurant to be more in line with fast food or a tasty dive, as the room is small and you... More
