“YUM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014

Kalua Pork sandwich with fries and garlic chili aioli were stupendous. Hit the spot. Good food not pretentious. Locals know about this place and rave about it.

“Anniversary dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2014

The service and food here were excellent. Even though there were several people waiting for a table the server never made us feel rushed. Both the grilled fish and the pork were delicious and reasonably priced. It is a small jewel of a restaurant with good sized portions.

“Local and popular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

Found this place by accident, and discovered a gem. Local food that locals line up for. If you can't wait for a table, don't worry, there is take out too. Shrimp Linguini is amazing, and the fresh Ahi can be eaten baked, fried or just raw. The kind of place you would visit every night if you could.

“Tasty Ahi Salad... And More”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

This small cafe in Kailua serves a variety of salads and plate lunch specials. The market fish of the day is fresh and served with a crispy green salad. The ahi was seared to perfection and the miso dressing superb. This is a gem and reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed!

“Very good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014 via mobile

small place, flavorful food. Three of us had 2 Kalua pork and 1 garlic chicken. The Kalua pork was flavorful. The garlic chicken was deep fried to perfection with rich garlic flavor. I don't normally eat fried foods, but this dish was worth the calorie splurge. At $9 per plate (curry fish is $14 which we did not try), the price is cheaper and better than the famed food trucks in Kahuku. No wonder the place was full at noon.
