A lovely spot for lunch! Staff were not warm, but the food sure was. Pablo shrimp was divine, cocktails were tasting, Korean ribs were a little overdone. Chicken katsu was fantastic! Lava cake was a little underwhelming but the only negative of an otherwise great...More

The food was good, there were 2 guys playing hawaiian music and some locals get out of there table to go dance in front. That was a really good evening for that. Plus, our table was outside and we saw lava glowing just outside Pahoa....More

Innovative Hawaiian-style Asian-American dishes served in a funky, relaxed space with live music. We stayed in a B&B not far from Pahoa and this was one of our favorite restaurants.

After a busy day of visiting family stopped for dinner. It was very busy and we had a short wait. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was not gourmet but good with a variety of choices. I would eat here again.

We enjoyed our dinner at Kaleo's. This place was hopping on Saturday night. They take reservations, but we didn't know that. They have their own parking lot, but it was jammed. They had a guy there to help you park. They were super accommodating in...More

After reading all the reviews, my expectations were pretty high. Extremely disappointed! The food was ok at best. We had the pork wontons as an appetizer, really not good, didn't even finish them. The lemon chicken was not lemony at all, I can't even describe...More
