Everything is relative, I read through a lot of these reviews both before and after our dinner here. Each group seems to be looking to get something different. In my opinion what this place is NOT is authentic fresh Hawaiian or island food. What it IS is fast food, not fresh, over loaded with massive massive amounts of salt. We... More

First time here. The male greeter was somewhat grumpy. Greeted us with a sour puss face. The waitress was prompt and courteous. Food came quickly and hot. Not overly pleasde with the " Maui IPS" specialty beer being served in a can! When we were ready to leave I caught the attention of our waitress for our bill. She acknowledged... More

We were there on a Friday evening. The wait for a table was very short. The service was good and prompt and the seafood was very good. My only complaint is that since all the surfaces are hard and there's no carpet the noise level make it hard to carry on a conversation. When we go back, and we will,... More

No kids menu, food is good but our fish was a little over cooked but the flavor was there. The macaroni salad is delicious . The new location is much bigger. The service was friendly.

Reasonably priced with good selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and entrees. We had the grilled fish of the day, Hebi (spear fish) presented two different ways; red curry with green papaya slaw over brown rice and pesto fish with Macadamia nuts in a creamy alfredo sauce over pasta. The red curry was mildly spicy and very tasty. We all enjoyed... More

We (a local and a visitor to Oahu) enjoyed dinner at Uahi very much. The outdoors seating in the evening was refreshing and cool but with just enough touch of ambiance. The garlic ahi is my local host's favorite and I had the poke bowl - very good! Our waiter was also exceptional. The inside of the restaurant at this... More

Could this really have been a one-off?! The service was miserable- waited and waited so long to order that I had to stop everyone from walking over to McDonalds. The menu sounded good, and I begged them to give it a try. I should have gone along with the McDonalds idea. My husbands Mai Tai was nasty (orange juice from... More

While traveling between Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and the replica of the Byodo-In Temple we stopped in this fine place for lunch and was quite pleased with the food. We had pulled pork over fries for appetizer and I had the pulled Kalua pork sandwich. Check out my pics. I highly recommend you find this place if you are ever... More

This was our second visit to Uahi Grill in a year but the first time at the new location. The new restaurant is much more spacious than the former...very colorful...nice vibe...easy parking with a public garage next door. Our meals...really good...just like the first time. I had their catch of the day with pesto while my husband went for the... More
