Love love the Aloha Burger! Grilled pineapple over a ground sirloin steak burger seasoned to perfection, and other meals are also healthy and fresh.

It looks small and unappealing on the outside; just the opposite on the inside. There was plenty of room and the friendly service was tops. The food was so perfectly delicious. We started with the sampler platter, which allows you to try their verity of sauces. I liked the shrimp on the platter enough to order it as my meal.... More

The food was great , I was very excited that you don't have to have the rice in the wraps, if I'm ever that way will try a wrap without rice . Everyone loved what they had,

My son, wife, and I ate at Papa Nalu last evening. We started with some delicious poke and ok lumpia. My son had the Papa Lau Lau, that is salmon with kalua pork and spinach. Wow! Outstanding. I had a mahi mahi bowl, which was perfect. My wife asked for grouper lightly blackened. It was served fully blackened, but was... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant and it was very good. My wife had the mauna kea shrimp and I had the huli huli skinless chicken breast both plates were very good. Both meals came with macaroni salad and rice. The macaroni salad was outstanding. Highly recomend this restaurant.

I enjoyed a delicious salad with perfectly seasoned and perfectly grilled chicken. Mixture of fresh veggies, spices, textures, cheeses, and flavors was spot on. The owners were in and friendly, and I always learn something about the history of surfing from the art and photos in the restaurant.

The strip mall location is not auspicious, but I couldn't resist giving a try to this locally-owned restaurant in Florida with an Hawaiian theme. The food was good, but what really made this memorable was the gracious hospitality of the owner who visited each table with sincere interest and good wishes. It made a great impression on me and I... More

After living in Hawaii for 8 years, this was a thrill to find just 5 miles from our home. The food is excellent and authentic. Serving sizes and prices are very reasonable. The staff is filled with the Aloha Spirit. It's so good that I have actually ordered several times from the catering menu for large parties.
