I called ahead to ask about their gluten free options, and the server was happy to answer all of my questions. I ordered the chicken lau lau combo, which was delicious, and I had no reaction the next day. The server encouraged me to stick to traditional Hawaiian dishes, as those were least likely to be cross contaminated. I couldn’t vouch for other items on their menu, but I also don’t know why you’d come here and not order the traditional Hawaiian food!

Shawn was our sever and answered all of our questions regarding which items are gluten free. He double checked with the kitchen to make sure what didn’t contain regular soy sauce or wheat thickeners. We went with the Chicken Lau Lau and the Spicy poke. Everything was so fresh and delicious. I love lomi salmon and the Kalua pork was insane! Overall a wonderful traditional Hawaiian meal. The stews, long rice chicken and a few other items are not gf and they did says things have been changing regularly so double check! Can’t wait to come back!

The staff was very knowledgeable and what is GF and double checked with the kitchen as well. The Kalua Pig was delicious as wel as the spicy poke appetizer. Had the combo play with chicken lau lau. Everything was prepared to perfection.
