"I LOVE HAILI'S! (Obviously because of the 5 star rating.) We were here at request of my daughter who is leaving to go back to college. This was the big family dinner. There was 9 of us, and seated comfortably. When we walked up to the counter, Aunty is always (at least when we go) there to greet you with a smile. Actually, all the staff is great! Always quick with recommendations, ask how the family is, talk about the days when they were across from Ward Warehouse, anyone remember that? So, on to the logistics! Parking: in the back of the building. Please take note that only certain stalls are marked for Haili's. You can also find street parking. When you walk in, the order counter is right in front of you. The menu board has pictures and prices. The counter help is always helpful with suggestions when you just want to get everything, but know that your stomach CANNOT handle the amount of deliciousness in the place. There are booths in the restaurant so you can be comfortable while you eat. There are daily specials, so check that out as well. After ordering, have a seat at one of the booths. We were offered pitchers of water. Since we had a large order and group, the staff offered to just start us a tab. YES!! That allowed us to keep ordering. The laulau is so delish! The kale pig is salty, but not too salty. ONO! The squid luau has to be my favorite. The poke is my daughter's favorite. The haupia is sweet and awesome and comes in containers so you can take it home! There is a mango haupia, but I am old fashioned and the regular haupia is fine by me. Really, coming here is a wonderful experience! Stop by and try it for yourself!"

"World star customer service by Noah! He told us what almost every dish was (because we asked) he had awesome conversation and was just all around an amazing person!! Food was good authentic Hawaiian!! If we have time we will be back!!! I had the combo plate with poke, some salted salmon and tomato, and some Kalua pig. There was something in a green wrap as well just don't remember what it was. ALL THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!"

"One word to describe Haili's = ONO! I was in the area to try out Ono's just a block away, but they don't accept credit cards which is how I ended up at Haili's instead. I'm so glad I gave this place a try! Tastes just how I expect Hawaiian food to taste, and the price is right! I ordered the Kalua pig bowl, which is a HEAPING bowl of Kalua pig and rice and a side of sweet potato and onions (only cost $7.25). My husband ordered the Big Kahuna plate and it was loaded with the works: kalua pig, laulau, lomi salmon, poke, chicken long rice, and a choice of rice OR poi (cost $16.something). I was completely full by all of the delicious grinds. And the hospitality from the workers was totally genuine and they're full of aloha. I will definitely be back! They're worth the drive from Ewa beach all the way out to town. Lol. Word to the wise, Helena's is nothing compared to this place. Food is DELICIOUS. Workers are so kind and welcoming. Price is right for the amount of food."
