I have been enjoying this wonderful Hawaiian food for several years. The service is great and the atmosphere is delightful. There coconut shrimp is wonderful and I love the kaluha pig. I always get it with their green salad because I really like their Honey Miso salad dressing.

The drinks here are fun, different, and affordable. The food was plain and flavorless. Go for the drinks, get an appetizer and go somewhere else for your meal.

Good fast service. It feels more like the Islands then the Islands do for better or worse. Great food Spam Musubi is great. Good pork as well. Great stop for a quick lunch. Mahalo!

Great food, excellent service, and I wish there was one by my house! Calamari was crispy with sweet tangy sauce. Coconut shrimp was crispy on the outside but moist on inside and not overcooked. The fried musubi was told to be a game changer by the owner so I tried it with no regrets. :). Loco moco serving size was... More

Aloha Timothy and Mahalo for the kind words! I didn't lie about the musubi, (DFSM), did I? So glad you liked it. Sorry the drink wasn't to your liking, next time try our 1944 maitai, made to the original recipe, with the same 12 year old rum. Strong and smooth. Hope to see you soon! More

Fun place to have a meal. So tacky it's chic! Excellent friendly service. Definitely start with the Kalua Pig Fries as an appetizer. And then have the Kalua Pig in any one of the dishes - so tender and flavorful. The Lemon Chicken is also outstanding. Reasonably priced too.
