Food was just average....asked if they had terriyaki chicken...said yes, and got their BBQ Chicken with some terriyaki sauce on the side.... Not as good as my last visit a year ago...seems like food quality has gone down

Although Lanikai Grill isn't anything fancy, they have great Hawaiian food. Both the Garlic Chicken and Katsu are delicious and if you like macaroni salad, their Polynesian style macaroni salad is one of the best.

I LOVED this placed last year, but it seems the staff has let things go. Broken chairs, everything feels sticky to the touch, ANTS on the floors, which makes me very nervous about their cleaning habits. When you go to a restaurant, you want to feel the place they are preparing food is clean and it just does not feel... More

If you haven't had a Hawaiian cook you up some BBQ chicken, you haven't lived. This place is great for the chicken plate. I don't usually get anything else because the meat isn't as juicy and tasty as the chicken is. I love coming here when I have a little longer for lunch.

I bought a groupon deal for this place that I never knew existed. I would've preferred still not knowing about it after this visit. I was expecting warm food after waiting for it for 10 minutes thinking it was being freshly cooked, however it was barely even warm when they served it. tables are always sticky and the sauce is...

Bought a groupon or we never would have really known about this place. It's in a strip mall. The place is in dire need of a face lift so it felt dirty. We were given choice of meats for the plates that came with the groupon. Had to pay the tax which I don't remember having to do in previous... More

Tired of being on the freeway we decided to take a break and pulled in to Sandy, made our way to S Jordan. Scoped the place for restaurants looking for anything Polynesian. There it was, Lanikai Grill. "Yes, thank you Jesus", or maybe I spoke too soon. As soon as we entered I wanted to leave. The female staffs sitting... More

We love stopping by here to get our plate lunch fix. It's great for eating in or take out. The garlic chicken is absolutely delightful, I need it at least twice a month. The chicken katsu is also very good. Another favorite is the curry, but it's only available on Thursday, and go early, because they do run out of... More

But keep in mind that patience is a virtue and don't expect to have more than 10 minutes to eat on a 30-minute lunch break - stop by Lanikai when you have the time to spare. Also, I don't believe the staff is purposely slow but have a different view on the pace of everyday life. If you take these... More
