We had a wonderful meal (planked salmon) and listened to wonderful music on a Wednesday evening at Kiju's. The food is so tasty, plate presentation is excellent and ingredients locally sourced. Highly recommend.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn that was attached to this restaurant. Staff is friendly but getting the food was slow. I ordered the Salmon dish and it was tasty. My daughters ordered pasta dishes and fish tacos which they said was delicious. Really...More
