I went there 2 weeks ago on a rainy night and the place was packed with all sorts of locals and tourists who were having a great time drinking and eating. There is a covered patio in the back where we sat.

Loved the ahi rice bowl lunch special. Restaurant is a bit dark, but Service is friendly and quick, and the food was delicious.
