We stopped to enjoy some drinks outside by the fire with the nice view. The drinks were good but we decided not to stay for food so I can’t comment on that. Service was good. The view was nice.

Very nice Japanese spot, service was excellent and fast, highly knowledgeable about all dishes even all the allergens. We went after dark and missed the mountain views we saw the next day but still highly recommend this spot. Ramen was very tasty!

The “come as you are” atmosphere is perfectly suited to Hanalei. And our food was superb. I especially loved the soft boiled egg the put on our ramen. Beautifully presented as well. I wished we could have hung out at the fire pit afterwards. No...More

We were a party of 7 and were sat at the table on the lawn. It was very relaxing. We did envy the people at the fire pit and probably would have stayed there for hours around the fire. They did. By far the group...More

I have no idea. Call them, although the phone number listed on Trip Advisor is for their sister restaurant, they should be able to tell you.
