Finally! A great place to eat near the resorts! After a night of okay pizza and another night of terrible Mexican food, we tried Monkeypod. They have excellent Happy Hour choices and prices. The Pumpkin Patch Ravioli is delicious. We ordered 3 pizzas and all were great. The kale salad is so good. The mixed greens salad is yummy! We... More

We've been on Oahu for about 6 weeks now and have eaten at MonkeyPod 4 or 5 times. I highly recommend the happy hour here. Today our service and food were very good and the entertainment was good as well.

The restaurant was across the street from our hotel. The restaurant is a "from farm to table" and organic. Our server was Kylie and she was outstanding. The food was some of the best we have had in the islands. We had the Lobster Deviled eggs that were the best we have ever had. The fish was caught that day... More

I live on Oahu but am rarely in this part of the island, but my son had a basketball game nearby so we decided to try it. We had a reservation for 7:45 PM on a Saturday night. The place was full, but we were seated within 2 minutes of arriving. The meal was great. The worst thing was the... More

We had lunch one day (shared a pizza and a watercress salad) both were excellent but glad we shared since they were huge. We liked it so much we went back for dinner - it is an easy walk across the street from the Fourseasons. Ate outside and good wine list. Again the salads were very good especially the Cesar....

Not a huge menu - but some great dishes. Saiman Noodles (that I had 3 times on different visits) were simply amazing - fresh, tasty, and filling! Two traps for tourists - 1. ask the price on the 'specials' the waiter suggests (they were over double the price of regular mains!) and if you tip in cash - check your... More

We visited for an early dinner and were blown away. Can't say enough good things. The atmosphere was amazing. There was a live performer that was so good, I thought we were listening to a radio station while seated inside. The service was outstanding; very friendly and helpful. And the food was incredible. Everything tasted fresh. It is a bit... More
