I was with a group of four and we each ordered an appetizer. The fish cakes were my favorite. They were crispy and light. The flavor was a bit of ginger and bell pepper mixed with delicious fresh fish. The johnny cakes are especially good mixed with the black beans! Best key lime pie ever! The staff is very friendly...

Sister and I shared several appetizers - poke and chicken wings were awesome. Prawns were tasty, but neither of us would order them again. Split the coconut cream pie for dessert (yum!)! Oh, did I forget to mention the mai tais? Best we have had. (P.s. We have been here several times and always enjoy the food, service, and ambience).

My friends had had drinks there, but we decided to go for lunch since I was in town. Fabulous lobster bisque made with coconut milk! Fish tacos and loco moco. I felt like I was in Polynesia. Great combinations of flavor that you rarely get anywhere else.

Very good weekend brunch as well as amazing sandwiches/burgers. Great atmosphere right on Central Ave with out door seating and wide open air restaurant (during nice weather). Good place to go as a couple or group for some good eats in central Phoenix

we stopped in here after visiting St Xavier's Church across the street. We came in for a quick lunch and we ordered pork tacos, fish tacos and a bean burger. The two tacos come with two tortillas a piece which could easily been used for four tacos, which is why these lunches are more than enough to share. The bean... More

I went to Hulas for dinner with a friend. It was my first time and wow I was really impressed. The place isn't much to look at but the employees were so friendly, the service was better than any place I've eaten in quite some time and the food was absolutely delicious. There's seating outdoors with a fire pit for... More

We ran in here for a quick bite before heading to the airport. I love that it was within walking distance to where we were staying. They have great extensive menu. I opted for the fish tacos and they were a bit dry. MY son got the steak sandwich and inhaled it! The bar area looks nice and they offer... More

First time visiting yesterday and it was fabulous! Birthday brunch on the patio - pineapple mimosa (they also offer OJ or cranberry versions during weekend brunch) & a painkiller (rum, coconut, pineapple & oj) were a great start. He ordered the Loco Moco - raved it was the best he's had away from the Big Island. Visually, it was the... More

Hulas is a bit of a drive for us, but it is by far one of our favorite restaurants. If you drink at all you have to try the scorpion bowl. It takes us the entire dinner to drink it between the two of us, and it's a great price for the quantity. My boyfriend and I love fried calamari... More
