    TOWN is now one of my most favorite restaurants in this globe! I have no idea how I can describe this better like.

    Love the idea of farm-to-table dining, but compared to other Ed Kenney restaurants, Town was just ok. Solid but I think I was expecting more given all the hype.

    The ahi tartare is perfection. By far the best I've had in Honolulu. But everything here is great, from the bread to the apps, to the entrees.

    Doesn't worth it. In the evening you wait forever to get in, and then you wait forever for your food, and it's nothing special.

    Try the tombo ahi, a fresh-caught albacore tuna on a bed of green lentils. Don't bother dressing up: The vibe is surfer chic. Read more

    Leg of lamb is amazing. Big enough to eat as an entree..served with yogurt sauce, cucumbers, and tomatoes so surprisingly fresh and light. Definitely get it!

    The mai thyme feels as tropical as a mai tai, with fresh pineapple and dark rum, breathed new life with housemade ginger beer and aromatic lemongrass and thyme. Featured in our 2014 Restaurant Guide.

    Free parking right behind the restaurant on 9th Avenue. If that's full, then you'll have to find street parking. Walk

    I agree with Nathan K. on both counts: Town is the perfect place for breakfast and coffee AND the recent addition of poi and pa'i'ai are a big plus. Try the pa'i'ai with roasted pork and fried egg

    The fries are sooo good! Get them even if your dish doesn't come with them. The bean panino didn't have that much bean on it, though.

    If you love the good at Town, try downtown at HiSAM for lunch. Awesome good! Town also caters so keep that in mind for special events.
