My friend and I were wandering Waikiki late one afternoon and we started getting hungry.
We both spot the Noi sign while inside the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.
We had a great meal there last time (several months ago).
My friend and I sat at the bar for Happy Hour (HH) which is only available here or outside at the Lanai.
You could opt to have HH at the regular tables for a surcharge ($4 per person).
The counter it was.
Their glitzy bar was calling out to us.
Great choice (if I do say so myself) as the bartender on-duty was wonderful and so kind and attentive.
But the items on it look very similar to the menu they offered for Restaurant Week 2016 (November).
In fact, it's the same price!
Please see my more in-depth dinner review of our previous visit
(we had a bigger party and ordered more items).
- Chef's Tasting Menu -
- Happy Hour Menu -
- What we ordered -
The Drunken Noodles can be ordered with beef or shrimp (for additional $5-$7+) but we decided
to be "somewhat" healthy today so stuck with their original dish with tofu, noodles, and veggies.
The restaurant is quite Vegetarian friendly (see menu).
The Yum Seafood was also quite refreshing.
It's like eating a cold version of Tom Yum Soup (minus the soup), with all of the good stuff.
We enjoyed their Crispy Taro Roll last time so that was a no-brainer once again.
- Spirits Menu -
Based on previous visit, pricing varies (but runs from $20-$70+ a shot) so check with the bartender.
My friend loved their Lemon Drop.
She said it's made perfectly (no sourness or too much artificial sweetness like the candy).
Turns out, the restaurant uses fresh squeezed juice for every order. :)
We'll be back again...maybe lunch next time??
