Limited menu, but what they ihave s excellent. Must try the Satay, friendly service, A little hard to find, but well worth it. I had the combo plate, Satay and Garlic Beef, very good. The location is the only distraction, but look past it. Make sure they are open, hours are limited.

Loved the food, and it was a casual place where there was no line and difficulty. I enjoyed this and will definitely be back

Anything I've ever eaten here is so tasty. It's a great place to meet your vegetarian friends! Dessert and all is sooo good! The atmosphere is off the beaten path, so it quiet and shaded. I highly recommend!

Unassuming location and modest decor camouflage this amazing restaurant. The chef is creative and well trained and the food reflects that and the excellent ingredients he uses. The fusion he creates bring pacific vibrant flavors and preps to reflect the multicultural amalgamation that is Hawaii without falling into the trap of becoming another "Hawaiian Grill".

The menu reflects a creative mind and fresh ingredients. This is a small cafe, seating for maybe 30 people inside and out. And the ambience is a little funky, this is not remotely an elegant dining spot, and there is no view to speak of but the food more than makes up for that. It's a little tricky to find, it's at the back of the the Banyan Court "mall" building. There's a public parking lot directly behind and you can enter from that side as well. Seek this place out.
