Once there was a mistake on my veg dish and they instantly replace it with a new - even though i was fine to eat... More

We eat here quite regularly and are never disappointed. The burgers are juicy and succulent and the vegetarian options are varied and just as good as those for meat lovers! You may have to queue to get a table but worth the wait.

The food is as good as the original Kua 'Aina on North Shore of O'hau! It was nice to have a GREAT burger from the states while in London. (We are Americans living in Germany, and don't get good burgers much!) If you want a good ol' American, albeit Hawaiian< burger, this is definitely the place to go!

Having visited Goodge St last time which we enjoyed, thought we'd try Carnaby St as we were in the area. The garlic bread could have been more generous as it was like 4 slices of buttered bread but had crushed garlic, which made it yummy. More slices please as it's £3.45p, so not cheap. I made the mistake to have... More

Nice place in Carnaby: a mix of Hawaii and US. Burgers are good, correctly cooked + avocado (remember to order the fries, not included) and mahi mahi fish is good too. The choice is not huge, but ok. Weitress is pretty nice and kind, always available, with a smile. The restaurant is small, tipical, Hawaiian wood and surf board around.... More

I've been lots of times and till now this place was great but today it's been horrible. The food has been served 50 minutes later and we asked for the burger medium rare and they were served well done. I won't come back. Waiter even didn't say sorry.

These guys serve up some really good burgers. Have been a couple times and am never disappointed. Sweet potato fries are the best of the side dishes.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
