“The Employees”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Order was taken quickly and correctly! Ample outdoor seating. There were some annoying birds flying around picking up crumbs. The experience I has wasn't very good. My friend sat on a chair and the leg broke off. He almost fell from that. The employee started scolding my friend and he was more concerned about the broken chair then his safety or condition. It led to an unenjoyable dinning experience. No matter how good the food may be, if the service is poor, I would not like to return there.

“Gourmet Fast Food”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Nowhere close to your "known fast food". Everything is so good. Russell Siu, Chef/Owner of 3660 on the Rise in Kaimuki owns Kakaako Kitchen.

“Overrated”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The novelty of this place is an innovative menu that sets it apart from the typical Hawaii plate lunch venue. But it is not much more than a mediocre restaurant masquerading as a plate lunch drive in.

If it is the drive in experience you want, there are many really good authentic plate lunch spots with really good food. If you want gourmet, there are also many good alternatives in lovely surroundings in Hawaii at prices comparable to or better than the Kakaako Diner.
