This is one time when Yelp let me down. Despite their great reviews I left disappointed. The BBQ chicken was excessively oily and tough, as were the short ribs, which also suffered from a sauce too sweet for my liking. The chicken katsu wasn’t bad in comparison. A crispy exterior made up for the not so tender meat underneath. Even ordered as a small plate the portion size was ample. The mac salad it came was in dire need of seasoning. It was as bland as tasteless as the rice. The much hyped chocolate haupia pie was pretty good — a buttery crust topped with a smooth and creamy chocolate filling with a layer of haupia on top. I love coconut, so the haupia worked for me. But, if you took that away it would have been just another chocolate cream pie from the grocery store.
