Went here for lunch and ordered the Shoyu Chicken plate which was recommended by the waitstaff. It was a perfect portion and tasty. Very friendly staff, but the restaurant lacks a little ambiance and was pretty cold in the restaurant.

Absolutely yummy and authentic! We have tried all the local Hawaiian style restaurants and we always go back to Kiawes. From the welcoming owners to the super tasty island fare it's just the best!
