Yes, we have a grilled shrimp plate. Shrimp has tails removed and marinated in olive oil, white wine, garlic etc. Served with your choice of white or brown rice and green salad or our homemade potato mac salad. You can also order shrimp taco, shrimp wrap or a shrimp burrito.

We got the chicken burrito and the plate of shrimp that was on special. The chicken burrito was a solid burrito and the shrimp was delicious. It was fresh, cooked perfectly, and super flavorful. Would highly recommend this place and the shrimp.

We tried the ono tacos, both grilled and fried, and the shrimp plate. All were very good but we were split on whether grilled or fried was our favorite. Would eat it all again and probably will.

Excellent Poke! Quick service meal was delicious. Wish we would have discovered sooner in our trip. I would consider a hidden gem for good Hawaiian food.

Get the Habanero chicken, don’t be scared by the name. The spicy sauce is on the side so you can control how spicy it is. This fish is amazing. We had it three times while on the island. Their fish tacos are amazing too. Some of the best food on the island.

Food was consistently good. Ono fish wrap, ahi plate, and ahi poke bowl were all cooked perfectly and were fresh. Takes a while (20 minutes) for them to make your order but it is worth the wait. They do not serve beer or liquor. Couple of benches outside and 5 or so tables inside. However there is no AC so it is very hot to eat inside the restaurant. Atmosphere is very casual (order at counter) so take out is probably a great option.

Stayed at the aston nearby and liked this place. Food is quick and good. One nitpick is that they don't have beef options, pretty good food though!

I will change my rating from 3 to 5. Original rating was because we were eating outside and weather was bad. No fault of the establishment. They can't control the weather. Had our napkins blown away and we were cold. We were wet and didn't want to get the restaurant floor wet. Again, no fault of the establishment. Review and rating revised to reflect this.

20$ for a Dixie plate of stir fry with chicken. It was very filling and a good amount of food, but the presentation was just off. The food was drenched with sauce almost taking away the natural flavor. It was a good after a long tiring day so I would recommend if you want a casual quick “grub” meal.

Really good. I can see why a lot of people say these are “the best tacos they have ever had.” I went later in the evening and the Ahi fish didn’t seem as fresh as I was expecting but it was still good, however the Ono Mochi style was outstanding.

Recommend to with the pepper pork plate & grilled shrimp plate, paired with rice and salad. A perfect balance between the dressing used to cook the shrimp and pork without taking anything away from the produce itself. Compliments to the chef!

Big portions for a good price! Laid back environment and hit the spot. I had the fried chicken burrito and it was great! If you’re looking for a chill, low key place to eat where you don’t need to wear a button up shirt, look no further. Plus you can bring your own booze!

We ate here twice, and have tried the Teriyaki Chicken plate, the Korean BBQ Chicken plate, and the Ahi Poke bowl. All were really delicious, especially the Poke. BYOB or they have a fridge full of non-alcoholic drinks to buy. Outdoor eating with shade.

Had one each of the grilled and fried fish tacos. Both generous cut filets were equally delish as they were perfectly seasoned and sauced. Wife had a small salad with a side of ono which was a perfectly grilled generous portion. Thanks folks for accommodating her food allergies.Another in our group enjoyed their vegetarian bowl (really a good sized plate) very much. The Sleeping Giant was another fantastic culinary find during our trip to Kapa’a.

We ate here a lot. Prices are a little high but the food is fantastic. They will put the sauce on the side if requested. They were able to answer my questions for food allergies. We had fish tacos, and their salads. Fish is cooked just the way you want. Order to go or eat there.

Really good plate lunch style food here. Katsu and Korean BBQ chix and Fish tacos all were good. The mac salad that accompanies was also good. The only issue we had was we didn't hear them call our name for pickup and I think our food sat there for 15 minutes while we waited for them to call us. It wasn't busy and so we figured they'd do it more personal so we sat just outside the restaurant. Not sure what happened but we didn't realize our order was up until after someone who ordered after us got their food, we checked and it had been ready for some time. It wasn't the worst, we took it to our condo and reheated the dishes in the oven but it was a slight annoyance that knocks a star for me. Would eat here again but be hypervigilant for the order up call.

This was where my wife and I learned how good Hawaiian food could really be while on our honeymoon. I hate fish, but my wife attests that these were literally the BEST fish tacos she ever had in her life. Girl wants us to order these tacos and have them shipped back to New York, she crazy. Anyways, I had a chicken burrito with pineapple and it was tremendously delicious. Lots of respect to the folks at Sleeping Giant Grill for keeping it real, really good.

Tacos chicken with cheese and mustard is so guilty for us because we seldom put so many sauces in one dish, but it is really delicious!! Chicken plate is crispy chicken with spicy sauce and brown rice, this one is so hot but acceptable, both of us like it!

The fish tacos were the best I've ever had and the teriyaki chicken was fantastic. So much value for your money, you can't go wrong eating here!

If you happen to be staying at Aston's Islander on the Beach in Kapaa, this little eatery is right next door. My wife and I tried two of the daily specials--chili pepper pork and the vegetable stir fry--and both of us enjoyed our meals immensely. The very friendly guy who waited on us at the counter even recommended a fishing charter service to me and showed me two huge just-caught onos in the cooler he was going to prepare for serving. Great place!

It is shockingly hard to find good saladIt’s easy to find good fish, it’s usually with rice or something else less healthy.This place does salad right, beyond lettuce they do multiple veggies like carrots, sprouts etc. I had the Ahi both times as it’s caught fresh daily and seared with a Cajun rub that has a kick but not too spicy!

Best meal we had on the island. Much better than some other “overrated places” we found ourselves at paying crazy high prices. The ono wrap and shrimp plate were absolutely delicious. Simple digs and reasonable prices for super fresh food. You can tell everything is fresh by the taste, but we also got to see that day’s ahi catch. So cool! Come eat here — you won’t regret it!! (note: Kris the bartender at Aston Islander on the beach, sent us)
