I love All things in the menu. Favorite is the Hawaiian mix plate , Laulau, Komi salmon, poi, rice and squid luau. Also the raw onions just top everything off with taste to include the Hawaiian salt. The pipikaula is very tasty. Food service is great!

This is a true taste of authentic Hawaiian food. Like it, or not, it is nice. We order three dishes. We like the beef stew. Ordered extra. Had a great lunch. Full stars for authenticity.
