    We come here for dinner every time we stay at the Aulani resort. The food was amazing as well as the service. We love the live music and vibes too! Definitely worth checking out when you’re vacationing. And highly recommend making a reservation beforehand. There’s always a long wait.

    Early anniversary dinner. Was greeted as such by everyone. The waitress was very warm and welcoming. Had the pork tacos and my wife and fish and chips. Both were very good. Finished off with the orange cream pie which was tasty.

    Nice ambiance with the live music. The musicians were great. Food was just ok. I think we got spoiled by eating at all the other restaurants around here. I had the fish tacos but felt like I have had better back in California. The pies were ok. It was a good experience.

    Had a lobster and fish pasta. The sauce broke and was very oily. Not to mention $52! Post stickers were salty and $22! Drinks were great but overall value was bad.

    We will eat anything Peter Merriman’s team cooks, and Monkeypod did not disappoint. The food was very good, and our server, Amber, was awesome. In addition to guiding us through the menu, she gave us some outstanding “insider” tips. We’ll be back!

    Food was great, service could use improvement. We ordered a soup and no spoon was brought with it, we needed to prompt the waitress to take our drink order as well. Edited: Great customer service, I would definitely recommend eating at this restaurant to a friend.
