This is not the restaurant from the movie, they just took the name. The Hukilau cafe didn't exist before the movie. Disappointed that they use styrofoam plates, which is bad for the environment, and plastic forks. My plastic fork broke and I wasn't given another...More

I was here six years ago and the place hasn't changed much. We had loco mono and it was delicious. The place is nothing fancy and has nothing to do with the movie, except for the name. No silverware, no air conditioner, ten tables at...More
