I thought I would let you know that Uahi's is a great place to eat in my home town of Kailua. I love their salads and the Kalua pork and Kale. Come and check it out!!

Food was good. Nothing spectacular but delicious. Server could have been a bit more attentive but overall a good casual meal.

I've dined at their original small location and was a little worried for them when I heard that they were moving into the old "The Grove" and "Lucy's" space. That location seemed like bad luck. And when a successful restaurant moves from the little quaint place it was into a larger location to accommodate more people, it seems like everything... More

We arrived at the restaurant and there was some confusion over where we were supposed to sit. The place was half empty and we ended up waiting while the servers debated about where we should sit. We ended up ordering two appetizers, the mushrooms and the fries and found the mushrooms to be sub-par and the fries to be quiet... More

We were visiting friends in Kailua and they chose this restaurant based on another family's recommendation. We arrived slightly before our reservation and they had an outside table set for us (10 people, not a small task!). We ordered from the wonderful looking menu and waited for the food. Our friends have a three year old son who has a... More

Excellent service at the bar. Super nice bartender making sure we are getting what we need and like but also letting us feel comfortable. Drinks were good except one of us didn't like the margarita but he swapped it out for something he did like. Food was great.overall I would say you can count on an excellent experience here!

Great food allround, from the starters to the desserts! Our waitress Chelsea was wonderful and was very patient when we wanted to split our bill. Thai fish red curry was very good

Just visited the new and much larger location. Great outdoor and bar aerea does enhance the experience significantly. Food and service still the same good quality. Garlic grilled chicken on salad or baguette are one of our favorites. Great Wailua soda flavor selection and desserts ! Try their waffles and chicken on sunday brunch - very good!
