Project Completed: Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai

I think there has been no business in recent memory in Kona that has drawn more interest than Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai. Sam is synonymous with Hawaii regional cuisine, and many locals felt despondent (yes, I’m serious) when his restaurant in Kona closed several years back. Every Kona Impact client that we knew we were working on his website asked incessantly: “when is it going to open?”

The good news is here: Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai is now open! If you are one of the two people in Kona who do not know the location, it’s located above the Keauhou Shopping Center in the location that was once a Wendy’s.

Kona Impact put their menus on their website a few days ago, completing the website, and we could not stop talking about the variety and, at least for lunch, the great prices. Dinner is a bit more expensive, but with it’s great sunset views and excellent menu choices, it’s worth it. We will be there on Monday for lunch.

Kona Impact’s role was to develop the website. We sought to highlight the food while at the same time keeping the essential information–phone and location–easily accessible.
We are excited to welcome Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai to Kona. It certainly feels a void in that area of Kona, and, truth be told, Hawaii Island.
