On most visits back to Kauai where we grew up, we make it a point to stop in for a meal or two. It is a long-time locals favorite with delicious meals at a reasonable price!!! Service is also great!!!

A family favorite each time we visit. Locally owned and operated for over 75 years. Always a tasty meal. No long waits for a table. Affordable. Friendly staff. Not a beautiful location but very pleasant meal.

We were looking for a local place for dinner on Kauai near the airport. Someone recommended this place as one where we'd find friendly service and great food. Right on the first point: the staff was very warm, welcoming and efficient. The food, however ... not so good. The fried chicken and shrimp were so overdone and hard as to... More

Got a little time between flights? Or tired of the typical resort restaurant fare? This restaurant has been in business for over 75 years. Friendly service and family owned. Guaranteed great meal!

Soup or salad and drink are included along with dessert. We had the hearty potato soup and the mixed greens salad and finished with pumpkin crisp and the... More

We visited this restaurant today. Tucked away off the main street this little gem is so cute. I had the don burri and my boyfriend had the chicken cutlet. Both came with soup. Fresh, fast and tasty. Looking forward to the next visit already.

We discovered this place probably 10 years ago. Right on Rice St, it's super easy to find and if there isn't parking on Rice street then there is a parking lot in back where you should always find a space. There are doors on Rice and from the back parking area. No reservations are taken here, and typically none are... More

Had a nice experience here. Food was good, more like homemade. Staff was friendly, funny and efficient. We were able to bring in our own wine and beer to enjoy with our dinner.
