Stick to the BBQ Chicken

We ate here twice, the first time enjoying it with the BBQ Chicken and Mochiko Chicken plates, but the second time not so much with the garlic mahi mahi. Choose wisely and this is an inexpensive, enjoyable no-frills lunch in Ko'Olina.

Great options at a fair price. Cashier was friendly & helpful- I was trying to piece together kids options from their regular menu. They definitely had options for picky eaters but great options for those who aren't too. I got the bbq chicken & my husband got loco moco- both were great & generous portions.

Nice alternative to resort food. Located across the street from Aulani. Honey garlic chicken was very good. Portions are big. Even the half portion was hefty to me.

It was delicious! Price were very reasonable for a lot of food. It was weird seeing a fast food place in the strip mall that had such a good menu of offerings.

The food was surprisingly bland, very expensive for what it was(mostly rice), and just not good at all. My "grilled" mahimahi was swimming in grease and frankly just gross. The pineapple fried rice is probably the most mediocre fried rice I've ever had. The two other dishes my family ordered didn't taste good either. Nothing tasted fresh. This place is... More

we were staying at the aulani across the way and after looking at all of the other high priced menus around this was the least expensive but it didn't in any way take away from the quality of the food. quantities were large and the value was good. My husband had to put a little bit of soy sauce on... More

Our family ate here on our last trip to Ko Olina and remembered how good it was. Not this time. My husband had Orange Chicken with rice and I had Beef Stir Fry with chow mien. Both very bland and less than average. The portions were huge and tasteless. I added soy sauce & Siracha to give mine some flavor... More

I hate to give bad reviews but we hated this place. It's in such a nice area but the restaurant seemed old and dirty. And the food was terrible- we seriously only ate a couple of bites. Maybe we tried the wrong thing- I don't know but I would never, ever eat here again.

What a great place! It's just a walking distance from Aulani & a place we will now frequent when visiting this area. the Spare ribs & BBQ chicken are very good & not dried-out. They cook to order so your meal is fresh. They also give you a healthy serving with enough rice for your entire meal. Nice to see... More

The prices are reasonable, and definitely generous portions. Beyond the pineapple chicken stir fry (which is a daily special), everything else we tried was average. Very friendly staff!
