Finally made it to Kula Bistro the other night to celebrate my (cou-gh)th birthday and it is every bit as good as I had been hearing.
The menu is huge.
Taking a family member's suggestion, "I don't know what it's called, but there's scallops in it," we started off with the Scallop Bruschetta.
One minute here,
The next minute gone. ... Yum!
The surf-and-turf special (prime rib, shrimp, potatoes, vegetables) was soooo tasty, and too much for one person. "Outstanding" was Beau Joe's pronouncement.
Three of us had sandwiches: cajun chicken, kalua pork panini, and (mine) crab cake panini. Ono, and not too heavy. The fresh caesar salad was just the right complement.
My Dad tried the Seafood Stuffed Mahi Mahi with Light Champagne Sauce. Good? Nod of the head as he picked away. This is a high compliment coming from my 90-year-old Persnickety Dad.
Daughter had an internal struggle: Chicken Marsala or Shrimp Scampi over Paradelli Pasta? The Scampi finally won out and she enjoyed every bite.
What a treat!
All of the pastries are made right there, and of course we had to try some. Two crème brûlées, two banana cake slices (one to share), and a piece of chocolate mousse cake later, we were stuffed to the gills, and very very satisfied.

And Persnickety asked for a crème brûlée to go.
Are we going back? You bet!
