Good value family style food. The service was very good. The food was expected for the price charged, and exceeded our expectations. Would go back to again. We've had problems with his chain in the past, but we are now converted to return as customers.

We've been to this restaurant several times and always go back, so that must mean that it is a good place to eat. The meals are cooked and presented beautifully with great table service.

No, there isnt a dress code as far as I'm aware. We were dressed in the usual Hawaiian get-up of shorts, t-shirts and thongs (flip flops) and didn't have any hassle at all.
