The service and food were good . However if you use the parking lot next to the restaurant pay close attention to the time so your vehicle does not get towed

Fabulous local spot outside of Waikiki. Food and atmosphere were wonderful. They are known for their rice and now I know why. Will definitely go back if we're ever in the area again.

I agree with most people here, they are very friendly and I'm sure would be happy to accommodate a plain steak or pork chops.
