Food was great but I'm not sure the vegetables were made with tamari. I had what may have been a mild reaction. Prices were great. Not sure it should be $$$, maybe only $$, that were that low compared to surrounding restaurants.

Visited twice while on the Big Island. Make sure you book a reservation ahead of time to ensure you can get a table. Gluten free items are marked on the main menu, and they only fry their french fries in the fryer so it's safe for celiac. Great food and drinks. Servers and staff very knowledgeable about celiac.

I’m giving Foster’s Kitchen 5 stars solely based on the fact that it was safe eating here. However, if you’re looking for really good tasting GF good, this place isn’t it. I had the fish and chips and it was just meh.

Amazing! I have not had any good experiences here in Hawaii with food being that I am Gluten Free.... Well, I just found GF heaven! They are so careful, knowledgeable, and the food is amazing! They use as many locally sourced food products as possible. But that just makes it even more amazing! Ask for Jahi when you go! Talk about an amazing person, but also so amazingly knowledgeable! Has a great dining experience! We will be back a lot!

This place was fantastic! Very accommodating to all my dietary needs. I'm celiac but also dairy and grain free. I got the calamari appetizer and the paniolo salad. Both delicious! There was a bit of a wait but we didnt realize you can make reservations! Would definitely go again.

This place was great! The fries were amazing..separate fryer. I felt very comfortable eating here and went back multiple times without any issues. They are good about GF but they do offer non gf items (which I don’t get considering the owner is supposed to be celiac- although our waiter told us he apparently “healed” himself of it?) so just make sure you mention you’re celiac. They took care of us!

So many GF options!! Most items made from scratch in-house. I had the Cajun fish tacos, and they were amazing! Other GF options included Paniolo Salad, Fish & Chips, Shrimp & Grits. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. Recommend 100%!

Food was amazing, service was outstanding. Hokey was my server, it was very refreshing to express my needs only once and feel very taken care of. I tried the calamari appetizer, the fish tacos, and the fish and chips. The fish and chips were perfectly cooked and the tacos had great balance. Calamari was tender and seasoned really well, tasted extremely fresh. Ambience and drinks were also delicious!

Ate here twice during my stay. I got the fresh catch once, and the fish tacos another time. Decent food. Very knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination. I also tried the fries which were really good. They do have a dedicated gf fryer. No reactions.

Delicious! Staff was very knowledgeable and marked my meal as Gluten Free on the ticket. Menu had gluten free marked on the regular menu. My waitress even told me that they could modify other items to make them gluten free if it wasn't listed. They had gluten free salad, appetizers (mushrooms and calamari), bbq, tacos, fish and more. They also had a dedicated fryer so you could get a side of fries with ribs. I ordered the Cajun fish tacos and they were delicious. I would definitely eat here again.
