I had a shrimp dish. It was fine. We had to wait too long to get our food during our lunch hour. I'd go again but not during the work week.

I was psyched to try Papa Nalu, having spent three weeks in Hawaii in March 2015. I seriously wanted some authentic poke and kalbi ribs!!! Didn't get it. Very nice staff, from the welcome to the server, they couldn't have been nicer. However the food...well poke shouldn't be covered in what could be termed a "scallion sauce": there was oh,... More

This place was a great little find. The service was kind and inviting. The atmosphere was warm. The food was fresh and delicious. The flavor was spicy but not overpowering. The prices were good for a vacation area. Worth the drive to check this one out. The negative reviews have their points but as far as price and taste is... More

My family visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a local and we could not be more disappointed. The entrees portions were small, bland and mostly flavorless. Most of us ordered some form of fried shrimp and they were pathetic. The shrimp were obviously frozen, uniform, small and tasteless. The sides of rice were dry, and the fried rice ($2... More

The restaurant is a small out-of-the-way place. We arrived and were seated very quickly for our big group. The food was really good - I had the mahi-mahi and it was delicious. We would go back again!

This little place in a strip shopping center is quiet and serene. The menu is packed with traditional Hawaiian food. Some choices are a bit pricey, but there are reasonable items, too. The restaurant is clean and loaded with Hawaiian decor. During the early weekday dinner hours, it is very quiet, almost deserted, but I have driven by when it... More

Whilst Papa Nalu's Aloha Grill is not much to look at, the food is good and service as well. The Mauna Key Shrimp plate is excellent, and plentiful. A Hawaiian flavor without the halfway around the world plane trip. Moderately priced.

This little restaurant serves great fresh food with a Hawaiian flare. The owners are always visible and active. It is clean and well staffed. Service is prompt and efficient. The aloha platter is great as well as the wraps and Mahi tacos. Prices are reasonable and the restaurant serves a nice change to the chain restaurants.
