Friend from Kona brought us here for lunch. Pupu Sampler Bamboozle and the Kailua Pork & Cabbage are must have meals.

Gosh. We "has went downhill". Awful. Anyway, I'm sorry, the servers are supposed to say that we charge $1 for a refill of soda pop. I'll try to find who made this mistake. Many folks (including illiterate ones) are used to eating in chain restaurants...More

The food was very good and the service was friendly and efficient. Had lunch there today and left a little hungry after ordering the Thai Coconut Shrimp.

It's an APPETIZER for heaven's sake. "Pupu" in Hawaiian means "Appetizer" . Of course you left hungry.

We met a couple while checking out snorkeling places and they recommended Bamboos. We had the sampler-2 pot stickers, 2 quesadillas, 2 shrimp, salad and rice. We split it and added a small salad. Although we thought $10 was pricey for a small salad, we...More
