We have moved away from Honolulu for over 20 years and came here with some local friends. This reminds me of what Hawaii used to be, before commercialism. It is a tiki bar, complete with lantern balls, strings of lights, tikis and nautical memorabilia. I thought I was in the Tiki Room at Disneyland! We had appetizers: Kalua Pork Nachos (huge portion), which was very delicious; lumpia (Filipino egg roll), which were ok; the ahi tuna roll (very good) and a small Caesar salad, which was enough to feed an army. The prices were reasonable. It is off the beaten path, but I think there was a mix of tourists and locals alike. I don't know that I would come here just for the food, but the experience and memories of a by-gone era will always stick in my mind.
