Our favorite time of the year is the holiday season! The holidays are our favorite for many reasons, especially because it’s the perfect time of the year to give back. Help us give back to Hawaii’s keiki by participating in our annual Toy Drive and donate a new, unwrapped toy now through December 22- all donations benefit the Waikiki Community Center.
To say “mahalo,” for your donation, we’ll be giving you a complimentary appetizer with purchase of any entrée. It’s a great way to give back and get something delicious in return! Better yet, these dishes feature locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, which is just another way we support our community here, in Hawaii.
If you’re unsure what [free] appetizer you should get, we’ve got you covered! Tell us which toy you’ll be donating this year and we’ll tell you which appetizer you should order!

Train sets are nice and orderly, but they’re also exciting! Which way will they go? When will they choo-choo? Just like our Goat Cheese Rangoons, each piece looks nice and uniform, but they’re filled with excitement on the inside! And that excitement is goat cheese locally sourced in Hawaii! Oh, but please resist making a Rangoon train at the table…
