This really is a quaint little place on the main strip.......a little hole in the wall that has great curry, satay, and ahi wraps. You can't get a beer here but the food is great value and is really yummy. Give it a try.

After cruising around Kapaa we came across Mermaids. While reading the menu a local suggested we try it and we're glad we did. We had the satay and it was excellent. The sauce is very tasty.

I ordered the stir-fry noodles. Then, after a long wait, I was told they were out of noodles. So, got the stir-fry over brown rice. It was like eating pure salt. I don't know what happened but the fry-cook must of forgotten he already added soy sauce and salt.

Then, the lady who was taking the orders also was the one adding side salads to the plates. She used the same hand to grab some salad and then came over to write down orders without washing her hands or using gloves, etc

Tasty curry, but not great. Just decent unexciting salad. Good prices. Staff are quick but definitly grumpy. Seating is scarce. This is a genuin place where you get a little more than what you would expect from your buck.

Great food and interesting menu. The hibiscus tea was very good as well. Food was fresh and hot, folks there very friendly. No complaints!
