Welcome to Kua ‘Aina, the legendary Burger and Sandwich grill from Hawaii.
Are you wondering what ‘Kua ‘Aina’ means and how you say it?
Kua ‘Aina, or “Koo-a eye-na”, means “back country”, but is more often used to describe a country bumpkin in Hawaii. For native Hawaiians it can mean those who actively live Hawaiian culture and keep the spirit of the land alive.
A favourite of President Barack Obama when he’s back home, Terry Thompson’s lava-rock chargrilled burger and sandwich creations with homemade seasonings have become famous since he opened the original Kua ‘Aina on Hawaii’s famous North Shore in 1975. Forty years on, his legendary burgers and succulent sandwiches are still wowing locals, surfers and visitors alike.
In London you can experience the unmistakable lava-grilled taste of Kua ‘Aina by visiting us just off Carnaby Street (Soho) where you’ll be receive an Aloha! welcome. You can now also catch us on tour, with our Kua ‘Aina trailer, hitting the road an pitching up at festivals across the UK.
Wherever you visit us, you can be sure of our commitment to great food and great service. We use the best fresh ingredients that we can find, we make our marinades and seasonings from scratch and we cook everything to your order on our hot lava grills!
