Description: Hoku's at The Kahala Hotel & Resort is heralded for its innovative fusion fare which melds Hawaiian, Asian, Mediterranean and European flavors. The restaurant's twist on contemporary Island cuisine ensures that it is consistently ranked as one of Hawaii's best restaurants. Hoku's has a breathtaking beach-side setting with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from every table in the multi-level dining room. Also competing for guest's attention is the open kitchen featuring fiery hot woks, a kiawe wood grill, and tandoori and wood-burning ovens.

“Attentive service and excellent food”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Recommend the seafood pasta and imperial prawns. The tuna spread served with the bread was so good my wife (who refuses to eat raw fish) even got into it - I complimented it to the waiter and she brought me a second bowl without being asked. Three waiters served us without being obtrusive and were always ready when wanted. Very impressed with how thoughtfully they served a large family at an adjacent table. They had two babies and two younger boys, and 3 of the staff arranged 2 chairs in a way one could sleep; and since the family was non-English speaking, all the offerings were patiently described. Ask for a window seat to get a good ocean view.

“favorite whole fish”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The bread and spread served to start off your meal is perfect. Wonderful service and the most delicious whole fish ever! Its best if you call ahead to pre-order because they may run out. Perfection!
