Monkeypod Kitchen

They just opened in Ko Olina. If you enjoy eating at restaurants like Roy's and Alan Wong's you're going to love Monkeypod Kitchen. The prices here are more within the normal person's budget and the food taste excellent. I came with a group and so I was able to try a bunch of items. I highly recommend ordering some appetizers and dessert. You must order the strawberry cream pie because it's very good and you won't find anything on the island that makes it like them.

Since the restaurant is still new, they are busy. The guests who stay at Aulani and Ihilani also come here since it's walking distance. I recommend making reservations before coming. The parking lot is small so if you can't find a space, go with valet parking. I think valet is free, just remember to tip nicely.
