Had dinner during happy hour. $5 a dish. $5 a drink. Good deal. Good food. Fun for kids and parents. Away from tourist trap of cannery row where real food and drinks are served.

After being a week in CA, USA, we have finally enjoyed a good diner. Friday evening, place was packed, still walked in without reserving and got a table within 5 minutes. Service goes like clockwork, which makes this possible. The owners and all crew are very friendly and are truly interrested which made us feel special. This is the cherry on the cake, food is already good enough for us to go back tomorrow. Good fresh ingredients on a wide choice on menu. After we finished our diner and with a full belly, I checked the menu again to see what I will have tomorrow. Will be difficult to choose, I honestly believe all on the menu is good and can be order without a shadow of a doubt. We ate with 3, spend under 90usd all-in. I give the max score because the combination price/quality/service is in most balanced way. To all my fellow country people. Mensen; weet niet of er een andere goede ervaring is met restaurants in de omgeving, maar hier kan je gewoon goed eten, leuke atmosfeer, goede bediening... maar het eten is echt lekker. Gewoon doen, krijg je geen spijt van. Eetsmakelijk, Erik

The restaurant itself was busy and bustling so had a nice atmosphere. The food was tasty and very different to what else was on offer in the area. I really enjoyed it and would recommend a visit if you want to try some decent jamaican/jerk/hawain fusion cuisine.

Fish sandwich was very good. Slightly overpriced. The crispy coconut shrimp rolls were bland, but ingredients were fresh. Wait staff was friendly and attentive.

We went based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor and are so happy we did. The food was so yummy. We ordered the lemongrass crusted butter fish and the pan fried flank steak and both were cooked to perfection. The lemongrass crust had a nice crisp and flavor while the fish was moist. The flank steak had an amazing Asian flavor and was a perfect medium rare. The sides were even awesome. I don't normally like coleslaw but theirs was a light touch if mayo with a ginger finish...so good. The service was also excellent. The food and service was high end at a very reasonable price. The only problem was that we waited to long to try this place out!
