This wasn’t my favorite meal or food. We had teriyaki chicken, teriyaki steak, and the grilled halibut. The steak was fatty and not all that tender. The kiddo ordered the halibut and liked it, but beware of the bones. Chicken was okay.

First stop when we arrival on Kauai for lunch. A hole in the wall with excellent sushi and just good old fashion food. Highly recommend.

Large portions and a local hangout for dinner. Japanese food is main menu but something for everyone from fish, beef, chicken and noodles. Nice combo choices. Casual atmosphere

This restaurant was rather confusing for a first timer. Here I'm looking for Tip Top Cafe, no such sign. Walked in thru the front glass doors and to the right is the old fashioned weight scale, a rack with full of Polo Shirts and t-shirts...More
