So happy that they have reopened! The new place is across from the expanding Kona Brew Pub and in with Shiono's Izakaya and Willies Hot Chicken. Place is beautiful, service just as warm as always. They opened last Monday and we went on Friday so made a reservation for an outside table at 2 (Happy Hour starts at 3 and we wanted to miss the Pau Hana crowd).

We had the Avo and Hawaiian poke's as pupus and an order each of the cajun and tempura ahi tacos, all of which were just as fantastic as always.

Menu is not as large as it was, and missing some of our favorites (notable the Big Boy Bowl) but they do have some new things, like an Ahi Reuben, some new things with Pipikaula and Sweet and Sour Ahi Belly.

Full bar and for those of you who care (I do) they have better wines than they did in the past.

Their website doesn't reflect that they have opened the new place so we found out on Facebook. If you love poke you cannot go wrong!
