“Singapore food and style in Honolulu”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

On the back side of Ala Moana Shopping Center in Honolulu is a strip of shops and restaurants.. that kind of get forgotten about and only seen when you park your car on that level.. but actually it has become a lane of hair stylists, funky stores and small restaurants from Genki Sushi to Panya Bistro and Bar. The front looks like a bakery but behind is a ambient escape from Japanese or mainland franchise food in Hawaii. From the Singapore/Malaysian dishes $9 to the outrageous and just perfect portabella mushroom burger for $14 to the trendy bar and atmosphere.. the food is great.. they assured me that they do not use MSG in their cooking, the crowd is local, Japanese tourist and Hollywood producers. It is too bad that these stores have a view of the parking garage when there are no stores with a view of the ocean in the entire shopping center..

One of my favorite, go-to spots to share a meal — and conversation — with my friends. Nice variety of menu items — including ramen, salads, sandwiches, noodle and rice dishes — with a nice cocktail menu that's discounted during happy hour. The burgers aren't bad, either!

Great atmosphere! Excellent baked goods. Delicious & unique veggie curry donut! I love the Carrot Apple Ginger juice...Oh and the best crispy fries! What can I say, they catered our casual wedding.

Good bakery (cream cheese stuffed donuts are amazing!) . Also some good dishes at the restaurant, including the Laksa....quite authentic- and Chicken rice. Love the HK Milk tea and boba selection too.
