First impression.....wonderful ambiance for a little restaurant but very welcoming! Outside by the door is a menu for you to review. (Dinner)
Pros...elegant yet casual dress fits for the restaurant. Small restaurant so you don't have to worry about much chatter noise. 40 person capacity. Child friendly menu and a variety as well. Now the most important part, price, taste, and the 2 Q's "quality & quantity"
Food came out quickly yet with no rush. Most expensive item on the menu $28.99! Taste we had a starter salad that came with the meal choice which was fresh greens and good dressing! Next we ordered the skewer sampler which was mouth watering and bursting with the right amount of flavor! Main course....I had the Lamb med-rare with pasta....for you Lamb lovers this dish is a MUST! it comes with a citron honey glaze to die for!!!!!! I wanted to lick my plate! The best Lamb in hilo town! My husband had the Japanese curry with chicken which was also mouth watering! The flavors they put together are authentic and homemade! Lastly dessert .....their haupia pudding is decadent so light and yummy...never had anything like it. Also the Brownie sundae......make sure you save some room portions are very generous! Now the 2 Q's .....A+ 100% for both! We are yet to try everything else on the menu!
Cons.....because its a mom and paps family owned there is only one waitress but to be honest she was on it with everything in a half full setting. I don't really have any cons at this point being the first time here....:)
I really can't wait to return....check this place out and I hope you have a fantastic time like we had! Check out my pictures of our dishes as well!
