Came here with a friend after two other restaurants were closed. It's totally not what I expected but was quaint nonetheless. In true island fashion, when I enter the waitress says the only option tonight is curry. This is the Japanese style where there's a big helping of white rice and Japanese curry with onions, potatoes, carrots, and pork? It... More

As far as the terrible restaurants and service on this island this one is pretty good. I don't mind spending money here, and enjoy the ambience.

This time I went to the section of the restaurant that served just a plate of curry with rice. The place was empty, but then two or three people showed up a bit later. I guess everybody goes to the other side of the restaurant to have the buffet. The curry was not bad. It was Japanese style curry smothered... More

If you go for no other reason, go here for the fresh tuna sashimi. The rest of the lunch buffet is great. There's always fried fish, tempura, fried rice, lots of greens, and bottomless ice tea. The décor is mostly local wood, and very attractive.

We went there during lunch and we had an Asian fusion-type, all-you-can eat-buffet for $8. It was not bad, but I had anticipated I could get curry in this restaurant. Since they were still putting the dishes out when we walked in around 11.30 a.m., the first dishes out were the regular carbohydrate laden food such as aramen noodles and... More

Fresh sashimi, always has green salad, reasonable prices, and fried ice cream with each meal, it's an excellent new addition to the dining scene in Pohnpei!

If you like Japanese curry with rice, the Sei Curry House is the place to go. Reasonably priced and good portions make this a great place on a tight budget.

Pohnpei pepper is locally famous in Micronesia. Sei Pepper farm is located on the south part of the island, but Sei restaurant is the only place where you can buy samples of it. At $4 for a 3-oz package of either ground pepper or whole peppercorns, it is not cheap. However, it has a good flavor and is a nice... More

This place had a great hot-table with a smorgasbord of locally and freshly prepared foods. It was very reasonable ($8) and delicious. Lots of fun.
