“Delicious food with good portions”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We went to lunch at this place because our daughter ate here during surf camp and was hooked on the chicken kabobs. We looked at the menu and thought, "wow! Interesting food." We ate the Hawaiian pork sandwich. It was delicious! Our daughter ordered the chicken kabob with extra pineapple ginger sauce to dip her fries and was in "hula heaven" We'll definitely be back!

“Stingy portions of tasty food without water”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

This very small restaurant serves very delicious food but provides small portions and refuses to offer its guests a glass of tap water. One must order bottled water. I thought i was in Mexico. The service was otherwise very good.

“Great food! Pleasant staff! Will definitely go back and highly recommend.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Owners were personable even though they were short on staff they took the time to chat. The food was delicious. I had shrimp tempura and the rest of the family had burgers. Sides were also delicious and the calamari appetizer was excellent!

“The reviews didn't lie!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

After seeing the reviews, we decided to try Fat Kahuna's for dinner with kids. Quaint atmosphere, not "touristy", and actually met a couple there that lived up the street and love to eat there too. I had the ahi tuna and hubby had the shark - both were extremely good - shark was a bit better if I had to choose though. Would recommend both! One of my kids had the shrimp sandwich and loved it too. Just the kind of place we were looking for.

“Good Food, Tense Atmoshphere”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went to Fat Kahuna tonight after reading good things on TripAdvisor. We arrived early and sat at the bar. We were nicely greeted by Reed, out server, and offered some tortilla chips and house made humus.
My husband and I ordered a couple of bottled beers, the tempura calamari, the shark entree and the mahi mahi dinner.
We both enjoyed that our fish came with vegetables, slaw, and salad. I found the mahi to be a bit too salty, but still tasty.
My one complaint was the owner. This woman looked do angry. She was visibly agitated and was making everyone around her uncomfortable. I would have found the meal more enjoyable had if she had not been there.
