Food here is to die for! Long line ups are worth the wait. Try their local specials we did and the Mahi special was amazing and the prices are ridiculously cheap - for 12 bucks you get a get fish dinner that would cost you double tis in honolulu

Yep dang good food and awesome portions. Went there and knew it had to be good with all the locals there. Ordered the garlic chicken and kalbi ribs. Portions were huge and the food was really good. Ribs were cooked just right and had a great flavor. Garlic chicken wasn't what I was expecting, but it was really good as well. Mac salad had a nice flavor too. Oh and ordered the peach cobbler for dessert...it was a special, but very tasty.

Quick friendly service. This was excellent, especially for the price.

Did not expect such a great meal from the outside. We wouldnt have even tried it without reading other reveiws. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The portions were huge and a great value. The Rib and Shrimp platter is what everyone seems to order. The shrimp we great, I would go back again just for the shrimp. The ribs got mixed reviews from our group. Two ways to order, wet or dry. They are marianted short ribs and they ask how you want them cooked, first time I have ever tried a medium short rib. They both have great flavor but both are a little chewy. If you like a little bite in your ribs you will love them. I had the dry version and they almost tasted like a salt cured rib. My wife had the wet version and it tasted like an asian flavor sauce on them. The people in our group from the midwest are use to the "fall off the bone" style ribs that bake and simmer for hours so they thought they were tough. The grilled chicken was also very good. We ate here one day after visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center.
