Closed. Not update in the Hawaiian Magazine reviews to reflect business reality. Fortunately, alternate places to eat are nearby.

I like the Sam Choy's on Hickam the best. Parking is a little better and its on the beach. You can have a very relaxing meal and just enjoy the view.

They closed in February or March. Sad my wife loved eating their whole crab. Not much more to say except if you are determined to eat at Sam Choy's get a ticket to the big island. They still have a place in Kailua-Kona
