This was on our must-stop list. Be prepared to stand in line, pay in cash, and eat among flies and chickens. The line was long and parking difficult, but the shrimp was pretty good. The sauce was delicious and tasted great with the rice. The shrimp is not peeled, so make sure you bring patience and wet wipes. The eating area is pretty dirty and crowded, but people are moving in and out regularly. I would eat here again, but I'm not sure I would go out of my way to stop.

We stopped here because everyone said it was a must do. My husband and I shared a Lemon Butter Shrimp. The shrimp was nice and fresh and cooked well but the lemon was so overpowering that you couldn’t enjoy the shrimp. I have to say it was a disappointment.

WOW! The BEST shrimp we've ever had...ever!!! We did the scampi and the spicy, what a great combo of off-setting flavours. Get there early or allow some time, cause it's busy. And that should tell you just how good it is. Well worth the wait.

Heard about it from many. Went there on A Friday at lunchtime, no line. Got the Scampi. There’s a smoothie truck right next to it do that was a bonus. We would absolutely go back on our next Oahu visit. Bring cash, no credit.
