Teriyaki Beef

Aloha, Unfortunately not a good review. My son and I ate with you for the first time in this new University location. Nelson was in the house too. I use to eat at the PB location and he even catered my good friends wedding. I was born and raised in Hawaii. The other day we had Teri beef / Teri chicken and Katsu. All were subpar. Very dry, lacked flavor, tough beef. Also very small plates these days for the price. Very disappointed. Hope you improve. Shane

Kalua Pig

Everything on the menu is so good but the Kalua Pig is my favorite dish. The pork is seasoned to perfection, cooked with love and so tender - it's delicious! Oh, and the Mac Salad is off the hook!!

Korean Style Kalbi Ribs

Glad i got to run into one of the OGs of serving amazing Pacific Islander grindzmy Uso Nelson. My Kalbi Rib all Rice plate was so good I almost slapped the person at the table next to me. I relished in the swiping of my all rice into that Kalbi sauce. Mmmmm, come get some folks.
