Have rice with shrimp not potatoes. Just don't seem to go with shrimp which were pretty good. Kind of messy but you did have to peel them.

This is great. It's so nice I had the sweet chilli shrimp and my boyfriend had the coconut shrimp both were delicious. Service was great and quick and staff were very friendly. We went to the one in Kapaa. Not expensive either

The garlic shrimp and the cajun shrimp with rice was amazing! Fresh, fast and good price. Go at least twice every time we are in Kauai

Crispy but not over done coconut shrimp with a house made tartar sauce is not to be missed. There will probably be a long line but so worth it

Tasty shrimp lunch after a visit to Waimea canyon. Thai shrimp was seasoned well. Battered shrimp good, but heavy in the batter.

We decided to eat here on our last day in Kauai, because we had seen it advertised on the local travel channel. The shrimp was good, but not exceptional. I got the coconut shrimp, one of my favorites. It was very good, but not the best I've had. I think it should be served with a sweet dipping sauce, instead... More

This is a review for the Waimea location. We eat here when we are on island, and this time the garlic shrimp didn't live up to expectations based upon previous visits. The Ono burger was good. Hope this is just a one-off happening and not a trend as this restaurant is conveniently located.

So this place has two locations and it very popular so I tried it. The Garlic shrimp in fact, it was good but no sparks, the shrimp have the tails on and with all the saue it is more than a little messy.

If you are looking for a "dining" experience this is NOT the place for you. However, if you like a place where you can eat fantastic shrimp or fish, outdoors, in the middle of a quaint town, this is a must. We came straight from Salt Pond Beach to here for lunch today, it didn't disappoint. Hubs had fish tacos,... More

Not the Best shrimp but acceptable. Small place fast food type resonable prices, good for quick eats. They charge extra for almost everything including Cocktail Sauce for Shrimp.
