I really like how Ken (Pop) socializes with most guests, the beer selection and fun Polynesian theme of the restaurant :) I also like the variety of the menu, although some days the food is overcooked ... thus my 4 stars rather than 5. They...More

I usually get my food to go, since there are seven of us, and getting everyone ready is difficult. I appreciate that every time I come in they show me each item as they are bagging it, I have never had to call to say...More

I drive by this restaurant every day and have never stopped until today. We had the most interesting, healthy and attractive selection of entrees and sides. Can hardly wait to go back. It is the most unlikely location on highway 101 so don't be discouraged....More

Aloha! Many thanks for your kind words! I guess you came at closing, as we don't usually have the chairs upside down. Glad your dinner was enjoyable though. Do try our lunch, as it is Hawaiian plate lunch, and a different menu. Mahalo!

This place is a favorite place to treat yourself and loved ones, or even for a business meeting. Try my favorite Chicken Katsu and the Orange Dream blended drink. The staff will treat you like family. You'll love it.
