“Excellent Food - Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Surprised at the stylish eat-in atmosphere, we were ready for take out only. The shrimp bowl and teriyaki chicken bowls were delicious; the rumbi rice and the sauces were just sweet enough but not too intense. The prices seemed normal and our half portions were generous and not overly filling. Then there was the pineapple upside down cake, which again was just the right sweetness.
Though the cafe was quite busy, the servers were exceptionally friendly and took time to brief us about their food, visit, and offer alternate driving routes back to our home in the Midwest. We could see the chefs cooking and it was very appetizing.
Next to an eye-sore empty but box-filled store, perhaps Rumbi can persuade their building owner to acquire some attractive window coverings to improve the neighborhood.
With plenty of parking, Rumbi is busy and quick but tasty and relaxing. Optional perimeter bar table seating is fun and the decor fresh and colorful. We're thinking about a trip to Hawaii.....

“Good, but slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I'd heard about this place for some time, but had never gone until this past week. I went in with no expectations. As it is, I was neither surprised nor disappointed except for the slow service. The food is probably overpriced a little, but given how common that is these days, I wasn't surprised.

In the end, I'll go again if a colleague or date wants to go, but wouldn't ever go again on my own accord.

“Something different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We tried this to have something different, but all the menu items seemed to be sweet. I tried jerk sauce on mine and it reminded me of bottled teriyaki sauce. Edible? Yes. Special? Not really.

“Fantastic food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were surprised to find a good Hawaiian restaurant in Provo, Utah. We go to Hawaii all the time and miss it when we are away so this was a little bit of the island. The décor is traditional Hawaiian with authentic historical photos. The music is traditional island music. The food was wonderful. I had fish tacos with a delicate white fish. My husband had a rice bowl with chicken prepared perfectly. The service was friendly and present. They kept checking to make sure we had what we wanted. We would return in a heartbeat.
