Pho was blah at best. The broth was so watered down, they don't bring you the basil, sprouts and stuff on the side and the service, nothing to write home about. Go to Bale instead, way better!

Again, this is not on the beach, and you might drive by it, but don't. The food is really good, they have cold beers and wine plus service is good. I would recommend.

We went there only for a small dinner and had Green Papaya salad, Spicy Ramen soup and Tom Kha Gai Coconut soup with shrimp. It was all very good, but the Ramen were delicious. The soup bowl was the biggest bowl I have ever seen. Like a small boat. A lot of food for the bang.

Looking for a good dinner after arriving on 'the big island' in the 'center' we found a good Indian restaurant but there was a waiting line there. So we moved away from the city center to see if there are some good restaurants there. Just near a junction we found a couple of restaurants, an ahi poke, pizzeria, Japanese and... More

Top shelf presentation, incredible flavor. Really some of the best Asian fusion I've had. I was really impressed with their drink and dessert menu as well.

We had lunch at the Lemongrass Bistro in Kailua Kona. It was a really good choice. I had basil shrimp, and my husband had a stir fried chicken dish. He also had a side of Kim Chee. All the food was seasoned and cooked just right. The service was quick and the wait staff was very friendly. The meals were... More

Simply Awesome (with two "A's") :)) The best Asian Fusion on the Big Island, hands down! Great service! Prices are very reasonable on any budget. Clean Crisp Atmosphere for any occasion. Behold the best kept secret in downtown Kona, and just off Alii Dr. Try it!... but save Me a seat if You get there first!

We were staying near the Royal Kona Resort... This was about a 10 minute walk from our condo - intersection of Hualalai Rd (which ends at Ali'i) and Kuakini Highway. As others have stated - the service is very good, the food comes out fairly fast and steaming hot, and tastes delicious! By getting just a little bit away from... More

Brought some Hong Kong natives here for a business lunch. They'd been craving "good noodles" which they hadn't found anywhere else in Kona yet. This place met with their approval and was where they dined for lunch all the rest of their stay. Not a noodle-loving Hong Kong native myself, I nevertheless also enjoyed the food and service and learned... More
