Nothing “to-die-for”, but nothing wrong, was alright; was good. All you can eat laulau, poke, poi (other island favorites as well) for under $20… no complaints from me. Oh yeah all good, she go!

The food didn’t look anything like the photo above on my last two visits (went twice more to give it a fair shot). I experienced a major kine drop in food quality. New cook? Budget cutbacks (ingredients)? Poi was lumpy. Poke was white-grayish in color like it was “cooked” because they added lemon juice. Kalua and roast pork meat was dry.

The non-traditional “Hawaiian Chicken”, “Teriyaki Chicken”, and “Roasted Chicken” all tasted the same and salty, like they used some cheap ass Asian soy sauce instead of Local Hawaiian Japanese mild shoyu (Aloha Shoyu or Club Shoyu), fo’ real! All three chicken dishes looked the same too except they added (WTF!) different vegetables to it, sort of as a garnish. Worst was the chicken thighs was boneless and skinless. Oh, hell no! When it comes to onolicious grinds, bone-in and skin on is a “basic 101” must! Ah, gun-funnit!
