We have been fans of IKG since they opened. Good food, nice family owed business, great value. The recently moved to a new location and now have more room and a much better kitchen. Highly recommend IKG.

After all the hype of them moving to this new bigger location I was impressed. Granted the place is much brighter than when the pizza hut was here. It's bright and white inside. A bright green decorating and white. You can see around the restaurant but when I was there all the booths had reserved seating on them. Wow so... More

The IKG is located in an old Pizza Hut building, but that's where the resemblance ends. The menu offerings are singular for Nampa; food based on Hawaiian cuisine with rice and spam making their appearance. The food is great and the service is swift. The decor is pretty basic and the food comes on paper plates with plastic forks and... More

Great food and good value. Decent service and left plenty full of good food. Break out of routine and try their food, something new every time. Will eat here again.

Heard much about this place, had to try it, and so very glad I did. The food is great and the portions generous. Location is soon to change into a larger place near Fred Meyer, and I can certainly understand why. Mahalo!!!

My parents took me here for my birthday lunch and I actually picked the place. I wanted something completely different and not the usual chain restaurant. What a great choice, the food was wonderful!! I had the mix plate, three different kinds of meat (each very good), rice and macaroni salad. They make their macaroni salad in the restaurant so...

When we walked in the place was packed. The poor waitress was all by herself. She was also the cashier. Major failure there on Management's part. I ordered the teriyaki chicken beef and pork. My friends ordered the pineapple meatballs. Mine was great. The waitress was sweet as could be. And you could tell that she really cares about what... More

Felt like we were in Hawaii! Food was absolutely delicious. Had the Kalua Pork. It was exactly like the pork from a Luau. Their Hawaiian Mac-n-cheese is worth fighting over. Friendly service and fast. You should give them a try.

Every time I visit my aunt in Nampa, we go there. They make the best poki I have ever had. The plates were generous and taste very good. Love the mac salad. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere friendly and casual.

Being a local boy from Hawaii (3rd generation portagee!), and living away from home, I try to find local grinds when I can. This place had some great food when we first ate here back in 2013, but in the past several months it has gone downhill. Lemme explain... Last winter I was hungry for some chicken long rice. Anyone... More
