Judging by the previous reviews, the owner here needs therapy, but we've never had problems. However, the gallery and indoor seating and restrooms never seem to be open - having them at all may just be a trick to meet health-department regs. The teenage girls...More

We stopped this business by because we were told the attached store/gallery had an ATM not for a snack or lunch. The lighted sign said open but the door was locked. We inquired about this to the owner. He immediately went into a four letter...More

I have been to many shaved ice places in this island but Kalamas has our hearts! This is THE place to go for certain. The thing to remember as a tourist, is that Hawaii is laid back and a much slower pace of life. Real...More

The girls here make delicious food. If you like swimming and snorkeling at Manini beach and Kealakekua Bay Park, Kalama's is your bet for a quick and unpretentious yummy lunch in the neighbourhood. Come by 12:00 to catch first orders, otherwise waiting for your meal...More

When I was ordering, I asked about the unusual mix of flavors in one of the items. I may have mispronounced a Hawaiian word. The guy got immediately agitated and asked if I was trying to insult him. Before I got a chance to answer,...More

Yes, we are repeat customers (visited Kalamas on our trip in Dec 2012) - and will repeat when we're here again. This trip we both had the Eric's Mahi Mahi burger. OMG! The fish is cooked delishously... melts in your mouth on a fresh bun....More

Lots of light and heavy food offerings for lunch. We love the Lau Lau burgers and the fresh fish Spinach Nori wraps. We've been here for the last several years and never been disappointed!
