If I could give it a "0" I would. Horrible. Mochiko Wings were beyond greasy with no dipping sauce. Lollipop Buffalo wings were the Mochiko with a touch of sauce. Not enough to cover up the greasy taste. The pork was rubbery. The chicken looked like the size of a pigeon and was flavorless. The macaroni salad? Two people spit it out. Finally the salmon salad...canned salmon with tomatoes in it over greens. I repeat, horrible.

This was bad... This was just really bad. They arrived on time which was great! But the food... Everything was tasteless and cold. Everything has a rubbery or chalky texture. I unfortunately will NOT be ordering from here ever again. This is not a meal one eats with pleasure and delight. This is a meal worth wasting. Shucks! I am really sad and upset :( AND STILL really Hungry!

Definitely a stretch to call what they served me 1/4 of a rotisserie. There was a tiny tiny drumstick with minimal meat on it. There were two other pieces that had zero meat. It was served over a bed of stuff nobody would ever want. Pickled/spiced onions and a lot of dry/boring/bland cabbage. Pretty weak overall. Seams like they spend too much on their uninteresting sides and neglect the focus of the meal: the protein.

My order was confirmed with an estimated delivery time of 20-30 minutes... over an hour later, I still hadn't received my food so I called the restaurant. Somehow, they hadn't even realized my order existed and my food hadn't been made yet. When I spoke to the manager, he was completely unapologetic. As someone who manages a restaurant that is a Seamless vendor, this is completely unacceptable. My food hasn't arrived yet but I will never order from here ever again.

ordered Paniolo Cowboy BBQ Pork Ribs, but got my ribs as if they were from a local Chinese restaurant. I personally has nothing against Chinese style ribs, but who would have thought a cowboy BBQ ribs would end up like that. Huge disappointment...

Boring grilled chicken and boring rice that arrived COLD and 40 minutes after their estimated delivery time. Avoid this.

Very, very poor experience. $13.95 barbecue ahi plate consisted of three absolutely tiny medallions of cold tuna, with a small handful of limp, cold soggy fries and a half-filled container of macaroni salad (at least the latter was supposed to be cold, I assume). It's been a while since I still felt hungry after a $17.00 (after tax and tip) lunch. The $13.95 was for a regular "dinner" portion - so I honestly can't imagine what their special plate lunch, which supposedly consists of a half-portion and doesn't include the two sides, must be. One and a half forkfuls of fish on a spoonful of rice, maybe? I mean, honestly, I would have considered the portion I received small for a lunch special; to pay the full dinner price for that is just insulting. The ahi (while it was fresh and cooked to the proper degree of rareness) wasn't really what I'd call barbecue - the only taste present was that of the tuna. Which, in itself, wouldn't be that big a fault - if they'd at least supplied more than a couple of mouthfuls worth. The fact that it was cold didn't hurt the fish that much, but the fries, being both cold and soggy, were virtually inedible (fortunately there weren't that many to try to choke down). The food, to be fair, probably was reasonably warm when it came out of the kitchen. The problem was that the restaurant got the address wrong, sending the poor delivery guy to an office we vacated last year, despite the fact that the Seamless receipt *clearly* has the correct address on it. What the heck -- do they have their own database and think they know better than Seamless does where we want our food sent?! Anyway, a big waste of delivery guy's time and of my time as we both waited pointlessly for many minutes in different lobbies. Hopefully they'll be more careful in the future to look at the actual address on Seamless orders, but it won't affect me, because I certainly won't be ordering from them again.

The delivery estimate was 20-35 minutes, and the food shows up in 70 minutes. Hence, the food was already cold, and the meat was not cooked properly.

Waited almost an hour for food, which tasted awful. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

The food here is really awesome. The first time I ordered from here I got the huli huli chicken and the portions were very large and the flavors were really wonderful. I don't know that I would really characterize everything as Hawaiian, but it is all delicious. The sandwiches are also very big and fresh. I highly recommend this place.
