After reading all of the reviews and driving by the location in Kapaa (which smelled awesome), we were very excited to find the new location in Hanalei. We tried the Shave Ice first...not a great idea. It was pricey and not impressive. After a few hours at Tunnels, we returned hungry for lunch. My wife had a Chicken Sandwich and I tried the Chicken Burrito. Our food was a bit cold and the chopped Chicken was a little underwhelming, and under flavored. (Same in both the burrito and sandwich, it had a few bones, but that wasn't the issue). I don't know if the chicken was being cooked elsewhere (it smelled nowhere near as good as just driving by Kapaa) and brought up but I was pretty disappointed overall. Counter service was friendly and efficient and we liked the shaded lanai where we were able to dine.

This little restaurant/stand in the heart of Hanalei was a great surprise. The most tender and flavorful chicken and a bean chili
To knock your socks off! Family run with great service and laid back cool vibe. Casual, great value.
