Recommendations.... there are so many! I love Roy's. Everything I've ever ordered there was delicious. My favorite place for Thai is Bangkok Chef on Nuuanu. It's in an old carport and byob. Very tasty. Chinatown also has some good new restaurants. Indigos is pricey, but the food and ambiance are worth it. Soul de Cuba on Bethel serves up yummy Cuban food, and Mei Sum Dim Sum on Nuuanu is an old favorite. For cheap, greasy, and super-local, Rainbow Drive Inn on Kapahulu is good. Hope that helps!
