I generally am more skeptical about fusion food. We saw people getting edamame (boiled beans, Japanese appetizer) and the menu has some Thai curry and were expecting a giant confusion of Asian food.
We ordered a stake with local beef and mahi mahi fish in red Thai curry, without much expectation. To our surprise, neither dish was delicate, but both oddly tasty. The winner of the two is the mahi mahi. I wouldn’t say the papaya salad and red curry were too authentic Thai, but somehow the overall flavour was quite nice.
After being relieved, we thought we were being a bit judgmental and decided to venture into dessert. We ordered lilikoi (passion fruit) cheese cake and chocolate peanut butter cake. We were thinking about sharing one, but couldn’t decide on which one, so got both. Guess what, we were fighting over the dessert and finished them all!
This place is probably best described as a restaurant that tries to make Asian food with Hawaiian ingredients. It is not a very sophisticated fusion restaurant, but if you put aside label, good food is good food.
