Reviews for Aloha Island Grille

My boyfriend and I stopped by this grille on our way to Capitola beach. The outside and inside decor are beautiful! The service of the cashier were awesome, very friendly. The food was okay. We ordered the chicken katsu and loco moco. The chicken katsu was nice and crispy but the sauce was on the mediocre side. The loco moco was also okay with the meat tasting a little under seasoned and the egg did not have that sunny side up runny egg satisfaction. My best part about the full review
I was really disappointed with this place. With 4 star reviews on yelp, it looked promising. I ordered to-go chicken katsu and they skimped me on the food. I paid for the "big plate" and they gave me either the regular size or smaller because it was definitely not $9 worth of food. It also looked like they threw everything in the box. I was supposed to get two scoops of rice and one scoop of Mac salad, along with a bigger portion of katsu. The chicken katsu and mac are ok. full review
I've been a patron of this place since about 2004, when I commuted everyday to SC for work. I've always had a good experience at this spot.... until today (03/28/2020). I am a big fan of Korean bbq, so much so that I'm proud of my own marinade that I can confidently say I've perfected. With that said, I liked this place because of their short ribs and their marinade. I don't know what happened today! We cruised up the coast from Monterey, just to take a ride and get out, full review
