I’d never tried Hawaiian food before eating here. It pretty much changed the game for me. So so so so good! The octopus was 👌 and something I’ll probably remember forever. Other good picks were the poka and the ribs!

We lucked out and got to Aina right before the crowd came. Our food was amazing. French toast on a fluffy taro bread from Hawaii, with two strips of bacon, and a lightly fried chicken Katsu dish with a Japanese omelet with some broccolini. All...More
