Omg I love Italian food, & as you know it's the red sauce that makes it or breaks it, & they nailed it...so good! Try the lasagna roll with mushroom marinara sause with melty cheese on top, yummo. No shortage of sauce. This place has a food of the month kinda thing (like cheesefest or garlicfest) so u never get tired of the menu. Service is always super friendly & they keep up 95% of the time, even when busy. They even have kids discounts or free or something one day. Fair prices & if u wanna get hammered they got a $9 jug for 1/2 off wine day that serves 10 glasses, lol, not high quality wine, but it gets the Job done.
Da Big Kahuna's has moved about 1.5 miles from it's old shack on Puuloa Rd to a strip mall at 550 Paiea St right by the airport. The pizzas are thick and, for my taste at least, perfect. They also have wonderful sandwiches - very large so I make two meals from one. Don't skip the garlic cheeseballs! May not be the healthiest things, but are so good I don't care! Seating is limited, though larger than the old place. Lots of parking though - and the place is air conditioned which is really nice on those summer days. The old place wasn't.
This is a great place for people who love to eat healthy Chinese...for once! Not greasy but flavorful! If u don't like veggies don't come & don't leave bad reviews...go to panda's. It's not a multi-entry type of place so your one dish meal is made to order. Fast service, fair prices...get the lunch menu...correct portioning plus mini salad. Only junk thing is once in a month they have these "barely of working age" kids come in & screw up the orders when I guess the moms call off work or something.
I have cravings for Amina's & have followed them from Kailua to town. Large portions, fair prices. I have always said what makes it or breaks an Italian place is their red sauce, winner! My favorite: Spinach ravioli over marinara spaghetti, the combination calzone, vegetarian pasta with "rosa sauce (mix of red/Alfredo)," & the pizza gooey with cheese. More of a take out place/just a few friends as it is small, so call ahead as everything is made to order by the owner. She's so nice.
Chai's Island Bistro's special holiday buffet is probably the most satisfying buffet in Honolulu. Considering that every dish is made special a a gourmet's delight. The local flavor music is a big part of the atmosphere and the smallness of the restaurant makes you feel although its a buffet that you are very special. Each dish is prepared so that when you try the numerous varieties offered, each taste is special and worth a second bite,
We had dinner on a weeknight here and were seated fairly quickly. The food was good but I thought the prices were a little high for what was served. The dining room is very loud and made it hard to have a conversation across the table. This is probably a great place for twenty somethings to hang out, or families with small kids that don't want their kids heard. The beer was very good though.
Creative dishes, nice sized portions, byob, pleasant atmosphere, lots of parking - we love I Love Sushi. I don't understand why this place isn't more crowded than it is. It is better than Genki and every other conveyor belt-styled sushi bar we've been to on Oahu. We frequent the one on Koko Head Avenue, usually on Saturdays. Try it out!
Authentic Italian experience where time waiting for food is spent conversing and enjoying friends and family. Portions are comparable to restaurants across Italy. Savor the "transported to Rome" trip through food - you won't regret it or forget it. Sabrina's is on our must do list each time we come to Hawaii.
I've eaten at this location many times. I love CPK, they're always consistent on taste with the menu items I always order. Highly recommended except it gets busy sometimes because they're right in the middle of the mall almost. Make a reservation if you can and save yourself a little bit of waiting time.
Hand-tossed, thin crust east coast-style gourmet pizza. This place uses the appropriate sauce to complement the toppings. Pesto on the Mediterranean, Ranch and Wing sauce on the Buffalo Chicken. And the Caribbean Jerk Chicken is my favorite. Crust is fantastic. A must try even if you only 'like' pizza.
