“Worthwhile for live Hawaiian music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

The Bamboo restaurant has an interesting, historical atmosphere. It is worth the experience for local, live Hawaiian music.

“Fun spot with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This was the perfect lunch spot on our car tour of the Kohala coast. It has a friendly old time feel (the building used to be a plantation-era hotel). The fish ( which varies daily) was excellent. The day we were there it was Red Snapper. I had mine with the Coconut grilled version. My wife raved over the Kalua Pork and Cabbage. The staff was fun (complete with a rather impromptu hula dance). The service was perfect.
