Seafood Restaurant
“All of the food here is great... but the prime rib after 5PM is incredible! Parking can be a challenge though. 45 minute drive to the North Shore from Ko Olina”
70 locals recommend
Food Truck
“The most famous shrimp truck on the North Shore, originally launched out of a converted bread truck more than 20 years ago. Now that's some staying power. Will it be garlic shrimp today drenched in butter, shrimp scampi, or perhaps we're feeling a little braver and will have the no refunds, hot and spicy shrimp plate!”

Sushi Restaurant
“Great rolls, fun atmosphere but not a place to be in a hurry. We love going to Banazi sushi but don't too often because the wait is usually too long. They do not take reservations but they will let you go sign in and they will call you when they have your table so you can go walk around while you wait. ”
