Uncles Hawaiian didn’t disappoint, menu selections were wide and varied. Having a photo album with specialty dishes on the table made selecting entrees so much easier. Everyone in our party enjoyed their entree.

Look forward to returning for another great dining experience.

If you like Hawaiian cuisine with a little Asian flair, I would recommend checking this place out. Everything we had was great, especially the Calamari appetizer (it's spicy!)
Give Uncle's a try!

This was one of the worst brunch experiences we have ever had...we had reservations and showed up to an empty restaurant but we were sat in a tiny booth right next to the kitchen entrance. Our food took a long time to finally arrive to the table and it was disgusting. The “breakfast potatoes” on one plate were chopped up seasoned French fries. They were way over seasoned and dry. My eggs Benedict didn’t come with nice poached eggs, they were basically hard boiled with completely cooked yolks and accompanied by mushy scrapple. The omelet we ordered was tiny and had vegetables of an offputting texture. Our server charged us $2 more than what was listed for the one mimosa we ordered. There was a staff member that kept hovering around our table, he stared at us a lot and had a weird unwanted conversation with us that lasted way too long. We’ve had some decent experiences at this restaurant, never really anything amazing. But I don’t think we will be going back after this brunch.

This is prolly our 10th time eating here. On this particular occasion, we brought 2 foodie friends here to their first Hawaiian/Pacific Rim cuisine experience. They thought the Spam Musubi a very interesting restaurant item & went for the Surf & Turf Entrees (tender grilled scallops & filet mignon tips). I was not able to convince them to try my personal favorite: Aunty’s Mixed Plate w/ Chicken Katsu (fried chix tenderloins) & Lomi Salmon. This evening, however, I chose a lighter dinner of 2 poki (seafood appetizers, often raw) sides w/ a side of steamed white rice: the Queen Street Tuna (raw/diced/marinated) & the Tako (grilled sliced octopus). My husband had the Ahi Tuna Entree. All fantastically tasty. Our friends were too full to share the Maladadas dessert (Portuguese Fried Sugar Doughnuts). They were crispy outside, tender & moist inside, though I prefer much more the previous Uncle’s Malasadas version into which the chefs piped the sweet cream into the piping hot doughnuts immediately prior to serving. An outstanding part of the evening was being hosted so wonderfully by Mason, my favorite server since the restaurant opened. It was really great seeing him develop from a freshman bus person to a meticulous, graciously well-timed, inconspicuously attentive table-side professional. Mahalo nui, Mason! And kudos to Ke Kumu Hula & world-class Chef, Kaimana Chee, & the Uncle’s Team for bringing Hawai’i to this corner of the world for us to visit & enjoy over & over again when we are Island homesick!

we always dine at Uncles and always have a great time. the only complaint for this visit was that we each were ordering a pricey entree, but wanted to split one large salad. the server told us that they charge a split charge, so we let my sister eat the salad while we watched on. it was the principal to not pay a sharing charge for a salad. I can understand them charging for splitting an entree. Each of us (3) had an entree, drink. dessert and we would have to pay a split charge for a salad? either the server got it wrong when it came to appetizers/salads (split charge) or this is something new at the restaurant. we've always in the past would order entrees (each) and split a large salad and was never told about a split charge.

We went on New Years Eve but we’ve been there several times before. The food is excellent, the staff is polite and attentive and the selection of food and rink is always great.

They were out of several menu items which was disappointing but we did have a later reservation so that’s a consideration as well.

Our reservation on Open Table didn’t communicate that I’d requested a table instead of a booth but the staff was able to get us to a good table in the largely empty bar area.

All in all - another great meal at Uncle’s

The waiter & kitchen staff went to extra effort to respond to our special requests. Their kids menu was a little lacking for our child - he loves his veggies & fruit- which were not part of the kids meals. So we asked for a veggie side & they obliged. Our child also wanted some fruit & again they obliged by bringing a plate of pineapple which was a HUGE hit. The food is very good - very different from most restaurants which we like. And in each visit, they go above & beyond to please the customer.
