This is not a copy if a New York deli. The servings are small and the food uninspiring. Ordered a pastrami on rye and a salad. A new York deli would have been embarrassed the portion was small I.

We ate our last meal on Oahu here. It wasn't planned but we had climbed Diamond Head and were looking for an air conditioned restaurant where we could cool off. We loved the food here and our server was great.

I've been here numerous times and have always been pleased. I usually try the pastrami reuben, which I love. This time I tried the BBQ Beef of Brisket (recommended by a TripAdvisor review) and loved it as well. I didn't notice the noise stated in reviews until last night. Maybe I was looking for it...

We visited here 2 years ago and this visit was just as good. Went early and got a table immediately. Staff are friendly and the food is excellent, particularly the fries. Burgers great, I'd recommend the pulled pork. Lovely for a casual family meal out.

Ate here twice during our very recent stay in Waikiki. Both times the girls on the very front desk were extremely surly and unwelcoming, with one even rolling her eyes when I declined the offer of a high table with stools, saying I'd instead prefer to wait for a booth or regular table. Eye rolling at customers is not cool,... More

The food was nice and at a reasonable price. We were able to get a table for 7 reasonably quickly and the service was good. However, it was very crowed and very noisy.
