Aloha Kitchen

2950 S. Alma School Road Mesa, AZ 85210 | Mesa | 480-897-2451

Location Description:

There's no tourist shtick here, just largely authentic Hawaiian dishes served quickly, in generous portions and for less than eight bucks a plate. Many Japanese, Chinese and Korean favorites are served, but save your appetite for Aloha Kitchen's true specialties: island-style noodles, Kalua pig, pork laulau and chicken long rice. It's the perfect place for homesick Hawaiians and for mainlanders in search of an alternative to everyday fast-food fare.
