We love this restaurant. The food is great, and, as a family with multiple food allergies (one egg and nut allergy and one gluten allergy), the staff was knowledgeable, reassuring and helpful. It made it an all around great experience.

I'm going to start with dessert because, to us, that was actually the highlight of the meal. Churro fries served with honey-butter dip fed our table of 4. Amazing. I'd go back just for those. As for the entrees, my tastebuds were satisfied but not...More

We are from San Antonio, so to us, Verde is to Mexican food what Garbonzo's is to Greek food -- a vague representation. Similar ingredients, but the flavors just aren't there.

I had the ultimate chicken tacos and my wife had the chicken tostada. Both were great and the portion sizes were large. You may be mislead because it's in a shopping center nestled by a Safeway but this was a great meal at great prices....More

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Verde, located in a small outdoor mall area in Lihue. Their burritos are HUGE and taste great. Tacos also had fillings that almost overflowed when you tried to eat them. They serve white rice rather than Mexican rice, but it...More

The size of the restaurant may fool some people, but what it lacks in size it makes up in Quality. The food is well prepared and taste just fine. The service is quick and polite. This place has a little bar for those of you...More
