Once in a while a restaurant’s cuisine and location both come together to offer the ultimate dining experience, and this is the case with Ama Restaurant. Ama Restaurant’s outdoor dining experience sets the stage with a large, covered seating area overlooking a stunning view. A high vaulted ceiling provides cover from the elements, while groves of palms and tropical foliage extend to the dramatic mountain ridges beyond, creating scenic views as far as the eye can see. Stop in at Ama Restaurant for cocktails and conversation, or stay for a full meal, but be sure to snag a table on the outdoor patio!
Ama Restaurant’s Menu
True to much of the cuisine found in the Hawaiian Islands, you’ll find the Ama Restaurant menu offers Asian fusion dishes, with tastes found in Vietnamese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines. You’ll never view ramen the same after enjoying a bowl at Ama!
Start your meal off with an order of bao, steamed buns stuffed with braised pork belly, pickled slaw, cucumbers, cilantro, and peanuts. Then select your choice bowl of ramen, the ingredients of which range from seared ahi to fried tofu. Select additional add-ons, such as a fish or chicken skewer, house-made kimchi, or spicy miso, among other options.
Let your conversation linger long after the last noodle has been devoured, taking time to enjoy dessert and drinks. A pleasant surprise on the Ama Restaurant menu is the homemade donuts, dusted with powdered sugar and served with a bowl of fresh ginger ice cream topped with ginger syrup. This eatery also offers a variety of specialty cocktails, as well as wine by the glass or bottle. Enjoy the sights and flavors of life in paradise from Ama Restaurant!
