It is next to a laundromat which is not an auspicious beginning. But inside is Casablanca. The food is good especially for vegetarians. It's comfortable like a living room.

We have lived in Kailua 20 years, before that we lived in Kaneohe. I CAN'T BELIEVE why we never had the Casablanca Experience until 2 nights ago, because they have been there forever. I never ever expected food that was so delicious and flavors that...More
