I had the most tender, amazing, and flavorful ahi here! I ordered the ahi wrap and it was huge. But it was so good, how could I not finish it?! Not a single regret as I walked my food baby back to the hotel.

The staff was super helpful in ordering and the burritos were fantastic. Good place to enjoy a hearty lunch before heading back to the beach.

Walked over for dinner and sat outside. We ordered the veg stirfry snd the shrimp platter and we both really enjoyed the flavours and the portions. A great place to have a nice casual dinner and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

So good. I had wanted to write a legit review about the smells and customer service and all that jazz. But no. Long story short, the shrimp plate was some of the best shrimp I’ve ever had. Texture was perfect. Flavor was perfect. Price for...More
