Hilo boy now living on the mainland, back home for vacation. My family and I were driving back from Kalapana and were looking for someplace to eat that wasn't a chain restaurant. We happened to see this place and thought we would try it out, thinking it was locally owned. We were happy with our choice! Our order was taken... More

Aloha Lehua has been one of our favorite local cafés in Pahoa for a while. By the looks of it, it was once a commercial fast food place. They have retained the format, but now it is family owned and operated, and serves a good selection of Asian and Hawaiian food, such as chicken katsu, teriyaki chicken, various fish plates,... More

We FINALLY had lunch at Aloha Lehua and we are so very sad we waited so long. The burgers and fries were hot and delicious and the lettuce, tomatoes and onion were beautiful and fresh. Hamburger was hand pressed patty and it was grilled to perfection. The baked goods looked AMAZING and the laulau smelled fantastic. Don't miss the famous... More

I love this place! Family owned and operated with a great selection of local food. Best lomi lomi salmon i've tried. I love the atmosphere and the pricing is good for the quality. I'd recommend everything on the menu.

Great local food, reasonable prices with good service. Very clean with a good menu selection. Family oriented and I've seen more than one small business meeting here.

I had lunch here on the way through Pahoa. The people are friendly and nice. I ordered cheeseburger with fries. The "medium rare" burger was completely raw inside and the fries were soggy and floppy. TV was on loud so the place was very noisy. It was worth trying but I won't return.

If it's a burger you want you can't go wrong here. Try it with avocado slices. Of course if you want a more traditional Hawaiian meal they have that also.And the quality is - HOMESTYLE... The staff (all family) are kind considerate and very generous. All in all a lovely experience.

Thank Michael S
