We stopped here after a hike to see the Captain Cook monument. We were starving! We walked right in and perused the menu. There is a great variety of unique dishes — something for everyone. I’d recommend the Thai Steak salad and their coco-mac-chip cookies!

If you like spicy food, don’t miss the spicy beef dish. I forget the name, but I won’t soon forget the taste. Hot enough to make me sweat, nuanced enough to keep me coming back for more. Other stuff was good, too.
