Four of us ate dinner and every one of us felt it was one of the best meals. The short ribs were huge and tender with a delicious sauce. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and accompanied by fresh broccoli, baked tomatoes and creamy mashed potatoes. I would tell you about the dessert but we were too full. And... More

Great location. Easy to find. Excellent, friendly service and great food. We both ordered the fish lunch special. The Mahi Mahi came on a bed of rice and came with Caesar salad. Food came quickly and was awesome! Will definitely go back.

We were told by our shuttle driver that the locals like to go there. We liked it a lot. The prices are decent and the food is excellent. Service is friendly and professional. It's a busy place but we did not have to wait too long, even without reservations.

Everything we have read about this place is true. Very good food, nice variety of dishes expertly done. It is very loud and frantic so don't expect a quiet intimate dining experience. We loved it and will come back. Don't miss sharing a lettuce wrap appetizer. Service was quite good, friendly but very efficient.

We visited during our recent family trip. We drove by and saw lots of people inside, so thought it must be good. As we were seated, we were placed with our tween and teen children in the baby/keiki section. It wasn't well maintained. The table mats were dirty as was the floor. The food looked appealing, so we stayed although... More

A local friend told us about this place and said it was a 'must-try-them' restaurant and as usual, she did not exaggerate. Upstairs in a strip-mall environment, the inside was simple and nice, and the view from our table did not include the street or the parking lots...not sure what the others could see. It was jamming already on our... More
