First Review by pontia

Not accommodating for different spice levels - Edit

We have been to kamana before, this time we came with my five year old son. Most dishes indicate they can control the level of spice, we ordered the aloo Gobi and chana masala mild. Both were too spicy for my son, we sent the chana masala back, and they brought it back out with no apparent difference. We ended up ordering the dal soup, having to wait for it to cool for my son to eat it. Apparently the ownership changed recently. I did ask them to make the aloo gobi milder, and they ignored my request. We will not be returning.

Very tasty - Edit

I ate here while on vacation with my mom and brother in Hawaii. Being the only vegan in my family ( and only 14 years old ) I always pick restaurants. Very knowledgeable waiter and new vegan section on the menu. Delicious some of the best Indian food I have ever had. Only big was they served mine with a side of non vegan bread but that's ok because my brother ate it. Would definitely recommend.

First Time to Find a Restaurant with NO VEGAN - Edit

After finding this restaurant on the app, we were dressed and ready for a great Indian meal. When we arrived at 8:00, some of the waiters were eating at a front table and seemed annoyed we wanted to have dinner. There were a few other diners. After a long wait, the waitress walked by and dropped two menus off at one end of the table and went to have a conversation with someone. When she returned, she asked "What you want" holding a pad of paper. We asked if we could have a beer and then order. She sighed and left and went to other tables, brought checks and then went to the bar and 15 minutes later we had a beer. Then she returned. We asked what vegan choices were available since it appears everything had dairy in it. She suggested two dishes but was not sure. When she returned, she informed us that even the rice contains Ghee. Their sauces are pre-made. everything is pre-made. You cannot have anything made without butter. They brought our check for the two beers and we left.

The table next to us was a local chef and his wife. They heard us talking and gave us a few other options that are listed on Happy Cow. They also added that they have a reputation on the island of not liking vegans.

In summary, this establishment should be listed as suitable for Ovo-Lacto vegetarians. It is not suitable for Vegans nor is it vegan friendly. In fact, there was nothing friendly about the place including the staff.

Pros: On the beach

Cons: No Vegan Options, Horrible Service

Nice seafront place for vegan eating. - Edit

It was clean and beautifully set and waitress seemed to be friendly. She showed us menu items, which could be made vegan, it was about 5, enough to chose from. The food was delicious, we ordered it mild, since my kids do not like very spicy food, and they gobbled it up. Nice Indian cuisine. To our surprise we got 20% percent off the bill, because we happened to eat at the "happy hour", which is 2-5 p.m. weekdays! Definitely recommend this place.
