Surprise

We went here not knowing what to expect. This place is a gem in a strip mall. The food was great and flavors were spot on. THe service was laid back , but eager to help.

Go Maui and Kauai often and the food at Pac Island is the best around for the state of Washington. Their Kalua pork and the Loli chicken is the best.

I've probably ate here 20 times in the last year, got sick at least 12 of those times. The backside of the restaurant/restrooms are nasty/disgusting. The service is lousy, I have to ask to have tables cleaned, silverware brought out, etc. I'm done giving them chances to get their business handled. They've proven that they don't deserve my patronage. Don't... More

This restaurant is one of the better ones in the area I've been too! I've never been served a cold dish, and never left without attempting to clean my plate. Service isn't fast, but music and atmosphere is wonderful. Their food is so delicious! Better than any other Hawaiian restaurant I've been too. The wide variety of items and drinks... More

This place was a nice surprise. The food was very good and the service was fast and friendly. My husband grew up in Hawaii, and he thought it was very good! Only negative is we ordered the poke and it was very good, but over priced for the amount. We often order poke at restaurants and in comparison, this was... More

What a great place to meet up with friends and have a good meal. We found it very relaxing and all 6 of us ordered something different and loved our choices. The lomi lomi salmon was excellent. Can't wait to go back on a Saturday and enjoy some live music.

More food is always more better so this place is the best for mass consumption of deliciously prepared Hawaiian dishes. Some tight seats like Invasion of Killer Tomatoes so choose wisely so you can get your over-stuffed selves out.

Best Kalua Pork on the mainland. If you find a better one, please let me know. My wife and I have tried other entres as well. We've never had a bad meal. Staff is always flexible about substitutions. Service is sometimes spotty in terms of speed but always friendly and accomodating. Restrooms could use some attention. Music on the weekends... More
