Have been stopping here for lunch for 15 (?) years on vacation. Maybe longer. Usually have a great huge sandwich (x2) and beers. Take-out ok. Inside for alcoholic beverages. Was there again in May '17. Will be back 2018.

Our family recently ate dinner at Hanalei Gourmet after a fun day in paradise. We had the Ginger Chicken, Hanalei Waldorf, Fish Tacos, and Jumbo Coconut Shrimp. The food was well prepared, plated, and served hot. We didn't have to wait for a table but the place was full/busy. The service was a little slow but not bad. I liked... More

We all enjoyed the fish tacos, made with fresh marlin the night we were there. It was very crowded and we had to wait a while for a table. They were closing for a couple weeks to remodel the kitchen.

Placed inside an former small town school classroom, this ought to be a great little place for a causal meal in a great little beach town.. Unfortunately the service was indifferent and the meals bland. Even fries were cold and soggy.

Ate there with a few of my friends while I was on vacation on Kauai. Halfway through our meal, another African American guy comes out of the back of the restaurant, and the bartender yells out: "What are the odds there'd be TWO Black guys in here??!?" The entire restaurant froze in embarrassment, but she was too dense to notice.... More

4 of us enjoyed an early lunch on a Thursday. It was busy but not too crazy. Service was very friendly. I had a green salad with grilled fish of the day (hebi) which was excellent. My friends enjoyed their meals as well, which I believe were turkey sandwiches and a veggie burger.

We went on a very busy day- it was pouring and people were lined up to get in any restaurant in Hanalei. We had researched for good places to eat and this was rated as one of the best in town. We were glad we waited. The staff was great throughout- from the 25 minute wait through paying the bill.... More

A great restaurant with a varied menu and friendly staff. The food was delicious and the Mai Tais were sensational. Steer clear of the tourist restaurants across the street and have dinner at the Hanalei Gourmet instead.

Plain and simple—great food, great service and great entertainment. For dinner, our group had fish and chips, fish sandwiches, a burger and they were all good. This place is very laid back, much like Hanalei itself. Will always come back to Hanalei Gourmet.

We had lunch here and loved it. I had the tuna salad that came in an avocado and salad. Excellent choice. Husband had the shrimp sandwich that was also good.
