food is amazing!! - Edit

Got the stew and it was amazing esp mixed with the rice! The pineapple ginger juice is also a must! Great place to take friends who aren't vegan as well! FYI: it's a little hard to find the place bc it's inside a building. You're in the right spot if you see the Himalayan kitchen.

Unbelievably delicious - Edit

This place is so good. Only saw a couple veg options on the menu, so we got one of each (Tofu Delight and the Ital Stew). They were SO GOOD. Huge portions but we both almost finished the entire thing. Comes with rice and a corn fritter. The tofu delight is in a spicy tomato curry sauce, the tofu was super soft and delicious. The ital stew is root veg in a curry stew, also delicious. It's a bit hard to find from the street address, but their website has a map with directions. It's down a small alley and in a little courtyard, there is a big city parking lot behind so just go to the next block to enter.

Happy Dance (delicious vegan options) - Edit

I did a happy dance after eating here - I got the Ital stew which came with 2 sides. My sister got a spicey tofu dish which she also loved. I think there were only 3 vegan entrées here, but there weren't many non-veg options either. No matter, the food was great. I love Carribean food when I can find vegan options. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Pros: Delicious vegan options, Nice decor/atmosphere, Friendly

Cons: Jamaican food, no Jamaican accents

Amazing! - Edit

One of the best places we tried on our vacation! It's hard to fine; three places share the same entrance, so look for the Himalayan kitchen and Seed, and it'll be to your left. A handful of options for vegans, but they're all great! Highly recommend.

Pros: Great food, Big portions

Cons: location hard to find

Great Post-hike - Edit

Hiked Diamond Head and this place was fairly nearby. Not much of a hike but after driving for over an hour across town and waiting for parking, then hiking in midday sun I was hungry. Nice breezy cool place. The tofu delight was so tasty! She said the chef can whip up vegan desserts (though none are listed) but I didn't try any. Parking lot is nearby but like anywhere you need some luck to find a spot.

Pros: Break From Heat, Delicious, Nice Staff
