A lovely Valentine’s Day evening with my spouse was made perfect by the spicy and elegant affair from the responsive chefs and personable wait staff. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

It was Valentines dinner. We were early seating. Felt rushed. Server had us in and out in an hour including drinks. Felt like they were anxious to turn the table.

Love this place for the great food & service! My one and only minor comment is that the lightening gets a little dim for my 40’something eyes at times 😁

Food was great. Chicken was the highlight. A little expensive, but servings were large.

Pros: The service was great and the fried chicken was really tasty! I'd also recommend the spam musubi and the kimchi.

Cons: The mac & kimcheese was pretty bland, which was disappointing because it sounded like a fun combo. It was also really loud (more "obnoxious" than "energetic") and pretty expensive for what it is.

If you're really enthusiastic about fried chicken, I might recommend this place, but with a caveat about the price and noise level. I probably won't be going back, though.

We had a fabulous meal here. The fried chicken really was all that, and I was raised in the South. And the sides were lip smacking good. It's a limited menu, so if you don't want fried chicken or Hawaiian fare, this is not your jam. We were dieting, which was less than ideal, but managed to get a belly full by choosing poke and veggies and not eating all the breading. Were I not dieting, I would have loved to try the carmelized onion topping! Service was great, and we ate comfortably in time to get to our show at Arts West. The only complaint I could make is that it was dark and loud. From the outside, I wasn't sure it was open, it was so dark.

Waffles and chicken nuggets with sausage gravy breakfast always a hit! The nuggets are home made, light batter and perfectly spiced meat. The waffles light and fluffy, and the gravy....BOMB! We also love the buttery syrup flavored lightly of coconut. Nicely done!

The table should come with complimentary ear plugs. It is good food, good drinks, but the room and noise level were uncomfortable and took away from the overall experience.

You must reserve the chicken ahead of time but 1 chicken can feed 5 people easily. Order the biscuits and gravy to go with the chicken!!

Been here many times for years and almost always get the fried chicken. Got it again this time but was disappointed as it was surprisingly dry - it’s usually juicier. Still flavorful, but not the quality we have come to expect (especially for the price).

Also, it seemed much darker in there than we remember... not sure if something has changed or if the lights we just dimmed, but I had to use the flashlight on my phone just to read the menu (I felt like my dad!)

We went for the brunch and ended up getting the whole fried chicken for the table. It definitely lives up to the hype. Crispy batter with a little kick, and moist and juicy meat -- it came with a a variety of sauces, but, honestly, it can stand on its own. The sides we ordered were also tasty (sweet rolls w/ nutella and apple butter and kimchi mac and cheese). We also had the poke, apple malasadas, and spam musubi as appetizers and all of were all delicious.

The restaurant is fairly loud and usually crowded. We didn't have a problem hearing each other, but it was definitely energetic for a Sunday brunch/lunch.

I am really annoyed with this place. We ordered bottomless mimosas and when we were still drinking the hostess told us that she needed to turn the table and booted us out. I have been here many times and this has never happened to me before. We were shocked and angry and will never return here again.
