The food was amazing. I never had Hawaiian food before and it was great. Tried this for restaurant week and the menu options were great. They had a lot of variety of fish and meat. The tuna poke and the spice pork chop amazing. So was the octopus and cod fish. Omnibus was nice and relaxed with Hawaiian music playing in the background.

Great cozy atmosphere and fantastic food to match. Came for restaurant week and the menu did not disappoint.The Ikura in the tofu app was so fresh, the five spice pork chop had very tasty sauce and the bread pudding was to die for. Would go back for this meal again!

This is a quiet casual restaurant. We decided to dine at this restaurant based on the menu being advertised for "Resturant Week". The service was adequate and the best part of the meal was the dessert. We chose our meal from the prefix menu.

We both ordered the mushroom tempura for our appetizer. I ordered the Kalua Pork Cavatelli and my mom ordered the five-spiced glazed pork. For dessert I had the chocolate Haupia sundae and my mom had the King's Hawaiian Bread Pudding.

The mushroom appetizer was good. The Kaula Prok Cavatelli was a watery pasta dish with bland pork. I was unable to finish this dish based on the unappetizing appearance and bland taste. My mom felt that the pork dish had an unusual taste but finished it.

Both desserts were delicious. However, after eating my mom stated she did not feel well. Later that night my mom was unable to sleep was all night and was violently ill all night and the next morning. I believe she had food poising.

I will not recommend this restaurant and will never return.

Went for restaurant week. Server was delightful. The poke and mushroom tempura apps were great. The pasta with smoked cod was good but rich (thankfully it wasn't a huge portion). The pork loin (chop?) was good but a bit overcooked. The upside down pineapple cake (for 2) was amazing.... Also was very impressed by the extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Can't wait to go back and try their fried chicken!

Nice for a darkly lit couples meal. Surprisingly loud for a small space. Pork Chop very good. Chicken Teriyaki meh, could have used more sauce. Caprese very good. Short rib--not tender but nice flavor. Pog tart a little gelatinous. Coconut ice cream, yum!

Soft shell crab was superb. Fried chicken worth the price. Jin, the co owner treated us superbly. A friend who knows him called him to expect our arrival. Jin has somm experience which explains the diverse wine list. Great value if you know your vineyards. Definite return.

Out of the four dishes we ordered, two were outstanding and the other two were average. However the service was sensational and the ambiance just gorgeous. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a different dining experience - the food and restaurant fit out we’re both wholly original and fun.

I recently came here with a friend to try a cuisine we've never had before (in honor of the late & great Anthony Bourdain). For such a small place, the ambience was cool without being intimidating and super relaxing. Our server was adorable and fantastic and I want her to be my best friend. We were drooling over everything on this menu, so we just went for it with the Luau Feast for two, and I don't know if I've ever gotten a better value for my money. We got an incredible amount of food and everything was INCREDIBLE and jam packed with flavor - the chicken in gravy was to die for, and the tuna poke was the best I've had in New York ... the food here is obviously curated by and cooked by people that love food. I cannot wait to come back.

I surprised my wife by going here 2 months after we got back from Hawaii. We were obsessed with Hawaiin cuisine and noreetuh was like we were still there. The wait staff was amazing and the owner Jim is a gentleman, very polite and friendly. He came out to make sure we were enjoying our food and are absolutely going back. There aren't enough stars to give for a review! Thanks for an amazing meal and experience

I grew up on O'ahu, and have lived in NYC for some time, and although there are many things that I truly miss about home, the food is near the top of the list. NYC had a few plate lunch spots, and the giant "poke craze" in the past two years at least brought the cuisine to the city's mass consciousness, but this spot in the East Village brings it all back in a great way.

Chef Chung Chow is a master at creating upscale local Hawai'ian dishes, enhanced by a multitude of unique ingredients from all over. From the tuna poke and musubi, to the mochiko fried chicken and the haupia sundae, the food (and the ambience in the room) will take you back to the islands for a couple hours. Every dish is perfect for sharing, as well, and the beer/wine/cocktail list is impressive, even by New York standards!

Highly recommended!

Wonderful Hawaiian / Pacific Rim cuisine with a really interesting and surprisingly extensive wine list and wonderful desserts. There were so many things we wanted to try that we shared several starters and appetizers and didn't even get to the main courses. A lot more we still want to try so we will be back!

The fried chicken was out of this world amazing. Loved the set meal with the macaroni salad, Hawaiian buns and homemade pickles. So good. I've had the prix fixe dinners before which are a ton of food and amazing. But now that I'm trying to eat healthier, the fried chicken is my go to dish to share with a friend.

Creative selection of taste combinations. Never had a pork chop as buttery and nicely flavored before. Prix Fixe offers great value and wine pairing is matched to the individual dishes. Last, but not least, our server was excellent and very knowledgeable and made the evening very special.
