Fodor's Review

Chef David Abraham serves Hawaiian café food with a twist. The specialty is "multicultural cuisine," like a Thai Caesar salad with crispy calamari croutons that is big enough to share. There's a full sushi menu as well; the Fuji roll includes shrimp, ahi, crab, avocado, and cucumber, tempura-battered and deep-fried. Wash it all down with the signature saketini. Lunch is a great bet here, too, with a build-your-own saimin (broth with noodles), huge Cobb salad, and juicy 8-ounce burger with lots of fixings. This place is popular among locals and is a nice spot for the whole family—the kids' menu was developed by Abraham's young daughter.
