Humuhumu’s description

Hukilau was more modern-Hawaiian than retro-Poly Pop. They closed in 2012, though hope to reopen in San Francisco at some point. There is another Hukilau

This restaurant serves Hawaiian “plate lunch” type food. It’s a little unusual for such a place in that it also has a full liquor license so there’s a full bar serving cocktails. The food was good. The décor was minimal and a little disappointing. For music they were playing Reggae when I was there which, of course, means it’s authentic. It’s exactly what a place like this would be playing in Hawaii.

Great food, comfortable local neighborhood atmosphere...nothing special on drinks...very hawaiian for food rather than south seas tiki.

They serve Hawaiian style food. The food is good and the menu has some interesting dishes. It looks and feels more like a Hawaiian burger joint with a bar and a few Tikis.
They do have a specialty drink menu.

I'd say if you're in the neighborhood for lunch it's perfect.
