“Birthday meal”

I was taken to little Kahuna last night. I cannot believe such a small place produces such fantastic food, this place is amazing! A breath of fresh air that Newquay can be very proud of. Will be going Back without doubt.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Fresh fish, lovely service, a brilliant meal. One of the best we have ever had. Only drawback is that we live in London and can't go more often!

“meal with sons”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

we went to this restaurant after my son had booked this, I was very anxious because he told me how small it was, we were allocated a table, one of the 8, the food was fantastic absolutely gorgeous, I had ribs and they were to die for, after a starter of duck spring rolls, and side salad I was too full for a dessert as were the boys. I have never known our eldest son have trouble finishing a meal, but he did there.
The atmosphere was friendly, not too noisy, not until a party of 8 came in, and they were quite noisy but that was at the end of our meal so it wasn't a problem.
It is somewhere I will definitely be returning to, I have already promised my husband a meal there.

“excellent”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We went to Little Kahuna as we read the reviews and thought we just have to try this little restaurant as the reviews were so good. We traveled 250 miles to test it out.
I must say that we were not disappointed, we were greeted as we entered the door with a cheery hello and taken to our table, one of only 5 so we advise you book in busy times.
The food is so nicely cooked we can only describe it as perfect, the scallops were cooked just perfect and melted in the mouth, and the red thai curry for main was to die for, we followed up with creme brulee, again it was perfectly done.
The service was perfect all the staff being very nice and polite, what more could you ask for?
Thanks to Alisha,Kelly,Ryan and Arron for a lovely evening and a beautiful meal.
