“Best food hands down!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

When you visit Cocoa Beach, your trip will not be complete without a meal at Fat Kahuna's!
The food is fresh, imaginative, and just simply sublime!

The serve you a small bowl of fresh chips, served with a bean and olive dip that is amazing!

We started with tempura mushrooms, served with a drizzle of two special sauces.
My husband had the tempura Mahi and I had fire grilled shrimp. Both were served with a small romaine salad, with a house dressing, the tomatoes were so fresh, that you would swear that they were just picked off the vine before going into your salad. Then there is a side of roasted veggies, an amazing coleslaw that is fresh and bright in taste! And a serving of coconut rice!
The flavor profiles of each dish is unique, but meld together to give you a absolutely sublime meal!

This was the most memorable dinner ever, the food was FRESH, Fantastic and reasonably priced. Even our pickiest eater loved it. I wanted to thank the entire staff for making my bday great. Even if you live in Orlando, its worth the 1 hour drive!! and we plan to go back again!. ALOHA!!!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The food was just out of this world. Fresh, imaginative take on classics, presented beautifully. I was taking a mouthful of rice and wanting it to last for ages. Great value and very good service.

Be mindlful that the restaurant is very small and looks more like a cafe and . Don't let that put you off, it's wonderful

“Don't miss out...make a reservation”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Loved sitting at the bar got to chat with the owner. Be sure to ask about the painting on the wall. We loved the coconut shrimp appetizer...must have!!! Ahi tuna entree was delicious and probably the best we've ever had and we order that in a lot of places. Try to make a reservation since its a small place and seems to be very popular.
