Overall this place is good. You get a huge food portion and it taste good. I have a Hawaiian bbq place that I prefer (not Ono, I just think they're ok also) but its in los angeles and this fills the void when needed. I'd say I probably eat here every couple months when I want a change.

The is a good value. I like to order the chicken salad with teriyaki chicken and rice. Tasty chicken and a bar with extra teriyaki and chili paste to spice it up

If you don't want to spend a lot of money....reasonable price....and get a good meal...this is it. Island style dishes is what it is. Chicken Teriyaki, or Curry dish, White Rice, or Brown Rice.....Hawaii style options.....bowls....low carb etc. Order food at the counter and they bring to you. Excellent staff...simple.....and yummy!! A little island gem.

So many of these types of restaurants lately. This place is hawaiian style using rice, meat and soy/teriyaki sauce in bowls, plates or platters. Chicken was fatty but prices were reasonable. Staff had an all business attitude and not friendly at all.

Go and u won't be sorry. Reasonable prices, great food. I hope they never go out of business. There salad and beef with rice plate is my favorite. My family eats here at least once a week and we never get sick of it.

We love Island Grill's and their Chicken Bowls! You get a ton of great food for just about pocket change. Go there today!

You CANNOT go wrong ordering ANYTHING on the menu. From the noodle soup to the salmon special and everything in between the taste cannot be best. You can also get brown rice substituted for white rice. Top it all off with a shaved ice! AloHA!

The food is quite tasty and the portions are large.You have to remember that the wait staff are not trained waitresses or waiters. So go with the flow, and relax, your food will come out in plenty time. Just don't go there too close to closing or you might get the "stink eye' from the manager.

Thank Nalu60
