Having spent 12 years in Hawaii, and now living on the East Coast, whenever we visit our son in California we always head to OLA's for a bit of nostalgia. It is what it is.... More

I enjoyed the fresh experience of this restraunt. The food variety remnded me of eating in Tiawan. I had a BBQ beef over a bed of rice and vegetables. The food was good and the service was quick.

We visited on 8/6. We were greeted by warm alohas as we entered. The young lady behind the counter was very helpful and courteous. Everything we had was delicious and good portions...Spam Musubi, Chicken Katsui, BBQ Mix, Kalbi. We really enjoyed the milk tea boba too! Will visit again every time we're in town.

I always eat here when I come to town. It's next door to my hotel, and the food and staff are fantastic.
