The shrimp was so delectable but a bit buttery. It was perfectly paired with white steamed rice. I can eat several times if I have to. It was so good! A must try when visiting North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Had the Scampi (#1 on the menu). Tasty! Its shrimps with rice and some garlic sauce. The shrimp itself is ok, but the combination made it tasty.
