The KALUA PORK was juicy and smoky. The beef that also came in the #1 combo was almost not worth eating--not especially tender or tasty. The chicken nuggets were O.K. I thought they were a bit tough and dry, but my hubby, who likes firm chewy foods far more than I do, liked them fine.
The BBQ pork was tender enough, and had enough taste so it was almost hard to eat by itself.
SIDE DISHES the macaroni salad had potato bits and less mayo, if any, than Hawaiian mac salad elsewhere; the cabbage ramen salad had sliced cabbage, broken up chunks of uncooked ramen noodles (like the kind that comes wrapped in plastic with no cup), sesame seeds and flavor; the 2 wontons were deep fried and fun to crunch on.
Half of my "plate" (as opposed to the "bowl" version, which comes with only rice, not the choice of 3 sides like the "plate") was enough for a petite lunch.
The decor is very casual, the tables and chairs small-ish. Parking in the back was easy.
Even though the meats were not as juicy as Ono's, I would love to go back and try the fried rice or fish tacos, among other things.
