Amy and I thought we could walk over to this local favorite only to find it was way further than we expected. Cafe Maharani has some amazing reviews and we were looking to get our Indian fix.

The spot is small and kinda beat up, but that's never deterred me from a restaurant. Also, they are a BYOB establishment so stop by the grocery store across the street or bring a bottle from home.

Afghan naan...way larger than expected.
Coconut rice and vegetable korma. Rice was good and the korma was a bit one-note...but tasty.
Kashmiri naan - very good. Tawa Chicken - too sweet for my liking

After Indian, Amy found a place a short walk away called Bubbi's Ice Cream. Do yourself a favor...GO THERE. A small ice cream shop that makes Mochi Ice Cream Balls! We didn't know how good we had it until we left Oahu and couldn't get it anymore.
Look at all the flavors!
