We wanted to try something different and this was. Our waitress was great, the service was great, the food tasted a little different, not bad different, just not what I am accustomed to. A great experience.

We loved seafood and went twice to have the combo with Kauai shrimps. The shrimps were very fresh and in good quantity. We would recommend it if you love seafood!

A block away from Waikiki and you pay for that. You have limited menu items, but it is the typical corn (small), potatoes (look like bakers sliced in 8ths), spam instead of sausage, shrimp, mussels and clam. Then you pick crab, shrimp etc—regular drill. You...More

You order really expensive sea food and they bring this in a plastic bag and literally poor it on your table. No plates, no forks. It is really not elegant you loose you willing to eat anything. For us, European, it is a really weird...More
