The Aloha Hawaiian Bistro is located at the beachfront, in front of Discovery Mall in Kuta. It is a fabulous location, with a great view of the sunset right on the beach. After an exhausting day at Waterbom park, which is across the road, it was a relaxing way to finish the day. Now I’ve never eaten Hawaiian food before, so I didn’t know what to expect.
The pulled pork dish came with rice a a nice side salad. However the meat dish itself was super salty type of stew, and the pork was a bit chewy compared to other pulled pork meat I have had in the past.
It was a pretty decent burger, with quality fries on the side. Chicken katsu type dish, which was again served with rice, but also an over creamy potato salad. The meat itself was so thin it was almost all batter!
This was a type of sushi, although it was called something else on the menu, nothing special.
Hawaiian fried rice – with pineapple of course. The interesting thing about this dish was the fried Spam that came on the side.Now this wasn’t the only dish with Spam in it, there were many that boasted this ingredient. I am not sure what is so great about a food that was eaten by those starving during the depression, or on a war-time mission, but it is not something that tickles my taste-buds at all. A big thumbs down for the Spam, even though the rice dish itself was OK!
We ordered a glass of milk for our child. They had no plain milk, only chocolate milk, and they had the audacity to charge us nearly $5 for one glass which came straight out of a carton worth about $1!
A dessert of milk, ice-cream and shaved flavoured ice on top… good enough as a main meal perhaps! It was enjoyed by the kids.
This place does not come recommended for food, only for the view and convenient location to Waterbom Park. Don’t go out of your way to get there!
