    My second time here. Delicious and great happy hour. We tried a bunch of pupus this time and everything was great. Mochiko chicken and gyoza were real standouts. Will be back

    This place was surprisingly good. I usually eat closer to Central Waikiki, but being a little bit off track, I was hesitant at first. Based on the reviews, I took a chance, and I’m glad I did. The service was outstanding, and the food was great. The prices were reasonable as well. I sat out on the terrace and enjoyed my evening very much.
