I remember when this was a Wendy's for years. Always said this must be the best and most expensive view ever. Now Sam Choy has a great location for views and great sophisticated but causal dining. Great food, service and views. I didn't see Sam like I had down the road a bit in the industrial area but great experience.

We chose Sam Choi's Kai Lanai for it's upscale menu and pleasant location with an ocean view. Unfortunately, we did not get to enjoy the food or wine - we walked out after being ignored for half an hour after we were seated. Two attempts to flag the waiter went unnoticed. We have escalated the complaint to the manager, and hope that things will improve.

This place has really turned around since they have a new General Manager (Greg Peterson). It is nice to see someone take pride in their job and offer excellent service. The view is breath taking, the menu is great, and we really love the Aloha!

We ate lunch there and thoroughly enjoyed. The food was good as well as the wait staff and the restaurant is open air with a nice breeze. We will go back.

Fantastic food got the chance to try Poke and some Pork Katsu. Well done, the bugs took the glaze off the experience as they flew onto the table constantly. But I will do it again, hopefully.
