Haili's Hawaiian Foods Restaurant Review

: Despite the tight quarters and nonexistent parking, this place is a mecca for native Hawaiians near and far. At the point-and-choose counter, you can order up authentic Hawaiian dishes that include the freshest ahi, lau lau, limu poke, kalua pig, luau, lomi lomi salmon and several types of poi. For some a visit to Haili’s is a unique cultural experience and for others it’s a place where it’s not unusual to bump into old friends or to make new ones. The Hawaiian plate lunches are very popular because the portions are generous.
