We would like to introduce ourselves to our past, current and future customers, as the new management of Island Flavor. It has been a dream of ours to pursue our passion for good tasting food along with our love to serve people and the community. Glenn and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the Aloha of Island Flavor throughout our home town. As frequent travelers to Hawaii through the years, we have fallen in love with the culture, food and Aloha spirit and hope you will welcome us as part of your Ohana as we welcome you into ours.
Island Flavor has been known for its authentic island style food and it is a tradition we will continue. We also envision expanding our menu options to include some new twists on Hawaiian style food that will cater to almost any palette.
We invite everyone near and far to come try Island Flavor. You will find our casual atmosphere warm and welcoming. We hope you will add us to your list of favorite restaurants whether it be for lunch or dinner throughout the week. And remember, that on Fridays & Saturdays we feature live music performed by talented, local musicians starting at 6:30 pm.
Thank you to all of our customers who have given us the opportunity and trust to continue showing true Hawaiian hospitality.
Much love and Aloha!
Allie & Glenn

This place reminds me of back home (Hawaii). As soon as you walk in you are taken back to the islands. The music, the food aroma and the aloha. We started with the Furikaki Fries and the Hawaiian Poke. Both were excellent and a must have. I had the combo plate with Furikaki Chicken and Kalbi. The Kalbi was tender and well flavored and the Chicken was great as well. My only mistake was not ordering a double Mac salad instead of two scoops of rice. My wife got the Kalua pig plate. The haupia that came with her plate was a good portion as well. Most places that serve haupia only give a small taste but this was enough for two people to share. Island Favor is a great place to come for great food with large portions. Great waitstaff too. They were very nice helping us with whatever we needed. The waitress even got my wife some chili pepper water for her kalua pig.
If you are ever hungry for local food with big portions this is the place.
I love Hawaiian food. It's usually very affordable and the portions tend to be generous. The flavors are suitable to my tastes as well. I don't remember anything particularly standing out about this Island Flavor, but overall it is a solid Hawaiian food establishment.

Gigantic portions that you can easily eat for dinner later. I ordered the teriyaki chicken salad which came with freshly fried wonton strips, tomatoes, small slices of purple potato and cucumber.
I liked my salad and if you ignore the strips and use the dressing sparingly, it can be quite healthy!
I want to come back to try their Kailua pork, furikake shrimp and more.

My favorite Hawai'ian spot in Vegas! I LOVE going here. (Prefer this location over the express location near me, in Henderson.) There are a variety of local kine grindz to choose from that are a unique to this place.
You wouldn't really think about going to a Hawaiian restaurant for a burger, but I LOVE their Big Burger! You're probably wondering, "Really?! Why?" There's a unique seasoning they use in the ground meat that makes it one of the best burgers I've had so far in Las Vegas. The patty is thick and seasoned well, served with thick cut fries.
My go-tos are the furukaki chicken and furikake shrimp. They usually have the Hawaiian plate on Fridays, and other daily specials. Check out their white board near the front.
You can also make your plates low carb by asking for mixed veggies (sliced and sauteed squash) instead of rice and macaroni salad.
Make sure to save room for dessert or take it to go ;-). They have an amazing Kona Coffee Mud Pie, which is my go-to. Goes great with the Kona coffee they serve. They have a great list of other desserts as well.
In December, they had Punalu'u French Toast!!! So ono! (So good/delicious!) It's definitely a must try. It's made with bread from the Punalu'u Bakery, the Southernmost bakery in the USA, on the Big Island at an area called South Point (the southernmost point in the USA.) They also sell loaves of it next door, at the Island Flavor Market.
** Note: Or they use to! :-( Found out on my last visit they don't sell Punalu'u bread anymore. (Please bring it back, if can! :-) )
TIP: Also check out their market next door for Hawaiian food, snacks, slippahs, 100% Kona coffee, chocolates, t-shirts, hats etc.
There's always that Aloha service here from all the staff and it definitely makes me feel like I'm home.
**I noticed on my last visit a week ago, that the portions were smaller, and some prices went up. I hope they go back to the serving size they had before. Mahalo. Still my favorite place to get Hawai'ian local kine grindz!
