9/25/99 - Saturday about noon I went over for a look. They say it's Samoan and Hawaiian food. Steam table a la carte items from $1 to $3, but today's lunch specials were $10 and $12 for ordinary food. I told them their prices were much too high for the area, and I could get lunch with soup, rice, and one item for $2.50 on Main St. I bet they'll be out of business in a few months unless they lower their prices. PS - I was the only customer/looker.

9/20/99 - I called today, and they've been open for about three weeks. They were closed today, Monday, but they answered the phone. I'll try the food or at least check the menu. Hours are unstable but given as Tue - Thu 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fri 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sat and Sun 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed on Monday, and always call first. At 7 a.m. on Sat and Sun they do breakfast.

Original info - They're closed for remodeling, may open mid 9/99 with Hawaiian food, maybe some Filipino dishes. It's back from the street, behind a fence, and it's very hard to find. They have a tall sign, but it's blocked by a tree. Call for directions, or walk a few blocks to the east of Main St. It's just west of an auto repair center which is painted pink. There are only a few parking spaces inside the fence, it might be easier to park elsewhere.
