We stopped as it was noon o'clock and we'd been up for hours. The sign says "Thai-Chinese' but the menu begged to differ. There was nothing Chinese or Thai about it. Now it may be that we were in one of the two buildings that are named the same, one right across the cramped parking lot from the other. But... More

My husband and I and his brother and girlfriend ate breakfast here on the last day of our Kauai vacation. If we had known how good this restaurant was, we would have eaten here more often. We ordered omelettes and pancakes. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. The atmosphere was very nice... More

We went here for breakfast one day and had Thai for dinner on our last night. Staff was courteous and answered all favour questions. The Thai food was delicious! We would definitely go back.

I ordered a barbeque pork stir fry and got a barbecue pork bun. I mentioned it but waitress was totally uninterested in fixing it. Decided to just eat it. The bun was soft soggy and the pork was so fatty I wanted to gag. There were these white round bits of something in the meat. Totally unappetizing. Couldn't even eat... More

Good breakfast place when the line at Kountry Kitchen is just too long. Good ham/Swiss omelette great French toast with either blueberries or strawberries. Don't even need syrup...also...they make a very good fried rice so if you want the basic eggs and meat meal and want to jazz it up order it with the fried rice.

While in Kapaa, we went for breakfast here almost every day. The one day we tried another place, we were very disappointed. We went back to Island Palm and kept going every day we had left there. The waitress was very accommodating and knew exactly what we wanted every day. She remembered us and gave us wonderful service. They felt... More

We stopped here for breakfast after arriving from an early morning flight to the island. We hadn't really looked up any restaurants but saw this one had a sign saying they served breakfast so we decided to try it. I was concerned that we were basically the only people in the restaurant and it took staff some time to greet... More

Probably the best Loco Moco in town, good meat, great fried rice, generous portion and for only $5.00: the cheapest in town for sure! I also recommend the Eggs Benedict but not the omelet, it's not the standard omelet were the filling is inside, instead, all the ingredients are cooked together. Service is friendly at least at the time that... More
