Food here is good but nothing to write home about. The mahi tacos are a bit overpriced you are better off getting a plate or a Saiman to the max bowl. Wanted to try the lumpia but they were sold out

I have been here numerous times and am not ever disappointed. This is a very casual dining place, with friendly staff and a family atmosphere. I love the shrimp appetizer and the rice bowls are really good. I usually order chicken for the rice bowl. It doesn't have too much of an atmosphere, but the food keeps coming back. If... More

A wonderful experience for your taste buds. We've been here twice and loved it. Definitely should check out the Burger which they only serve on Saturday's, you won't be disappointed. It'll leave you impatiently waiting for next Saturday to get here so you can have another one.

I lived in Hawaii-- this is authentic!! I love the variety and freshness of the food, and we enjoy "returning to Oahu" (gastronomically at least ) every time we go.

I often pick up to go orders here! The brown rice bowls are amazing. Brown rice, fresh steamed veggies, and blackened chicken with the spicy pineapple sauce!!! You will not be disappointed!! Check them out!!! I think the are closed on Mondays though, keep that in mind!

It is a simple place with friendly, efficient staff and fresh, great food that isn't overpriced. The menu offers things you just don't find anywhere else in the area. I kind of like that it is in a strip mall, allowing it to remain a hidden treasure!

Met a friend here for lunch. The food and service were great. I had the coconut shrimp appetizer and my friend had the fish tacos. Both were delicious and well served by our waitress, Trisha. If visiting the Gulf Breeze area I recommend you give them a try.

Always friendly staff and great food. The noodle bowls are awesome. You go there once you will always keep going there. The only issue. It's not an issue that has anything to do with the food. Depending on which direction you're going or coming or leaving to. It can be a hassle to get out make a U-turn and go... More
