Love shrimp tacos? You can choose from at least eight flavors. Want fish and chips? You'll get a generous portion of fresh local catch. Located on the opposite end of the building from Lapperts ice cream and around the corner from Uncles Shave Ice in Kukui'ulu Shopping Village, it is worth seeking out to have a great meal.

The flavor was great and had a good spice to it. Portions were small and it was pricey. They also charge you $2 to peel your shrimp on certain items.

My family went here on our trip to Hawaii. We all got fish tacos which were OK they don't come with any sides and they were bit expensive. We also got the french fries as an extra side but they forgot to cook an order of our fish tacos and so we had to wait even longer than normal and... More

Small diner but the food is fantastic here. If you're looking for local flavors and like shrimp, this is the place to go! Lots of different options for sauces - so hard to choose but the Bahia and Garlic were awesome!

They know how to cook shrimp here. We came here twice and god fried shrimp and coconut shrimp. Very fresh, cooked to perfection with aloha spirit! The coleslaw has a tangy dressing. We also had fish n chips - l' oved the ono fish, light batter, great fries. Informal, eat inside or out; great shrimp dinners at an affordable price!

The shrimp scampi is dry, not juicy as Oahu shrimp trucks. The coconut shrimp is just ok, nothing to write home about. The cabbage side dish is dry, not enough dressing. The only tasty is fish (that's what my friend told me).

This used to be just a truck at the road side. And if you were late you missed out on some of the best Brazilian style shrimp I have ever tasted. As they say in Hawaii, No Ka Oi!!! It is the best.

Nothing fancy but the food is great. The garlic fries are a must. Shrimp scampi really good. You place your order at the counter and they serve you very quickly.
