Love the pancakes at Hawaiian Pancakes House. It's soft, fluffy and tasty. We tried the 2 recommended choices: nuts nuts and king bacon pancake, and they did not disappoint. The restaurant had nice ambience and good service. Will come back if we have the chance!

The food here is lovely, especially the Spam and Egg pancakes. However, the pancakes itself aren’t really tasty, even with the syrup... Waited for pretty long, but still worth the wait. Can’t wait to come back!!!

The pancakes are delicious. Highly recommend the chocolate chips one! The portion is big and we ordered 4 pancakes to share among 6 adults. Parking is available and it is opposite to the pancake house!
