Tom Nahas, one of the founders and creators of the burgeoning Twisted Taco brand and Rahim Kaba, previous Twisted Taco partner and longtime downtown retailer, along with Mahesh Harjani Atlanta nightlife entrepreneur, owner of The Havana Club, brought a new California surf-food and drink concept-“Big Kahuna”- to Suntrust Towers in downtown Atlanta. Big Kahuna is an innovative and exciting flex casual concept, a fast casual lunch, with full service in the evening. Kahuna is designed for steady corporate growth and franchising.
Big Kahuna brings Southern California surf inspired Baja-mex and classic American food prepared with a coastal flair. The inspiration has been the surf, sun and extreme fun. You may ask: what does surfing have to do with food?
Surfers have always eaten healthy foods but know how to have fun too! Fresh and innovative tacos, artesian sandwiches and juicy giant hand packed organic Angus burgers on homemade buns along with fresh creative salads are part of this innovative menu. Big Kahuna strives for healthy, always fresh and deliciously satisfying foods with no trans fat and include sizzling cast iron plates featuring grilled cage free chicken, seared grass fed beef, fresh seafood, ahi tuna and Crab legs, all of which were inspired by the ocean breeze and the crashing surf.
Big Kahuna is a fun, innovative and comfortable, yet high-energy environment where Newport Beach is met with Atlanta flair. It will feature a 30-foot bar, multiple 50” flat screens to watch all the games, and outdoor patio seating in admiration of the downtown backdrop. Crafted cocktails, classic martinis and beach drinks are offered as well as 16 draught beers and dozens by the bottle. Private parties, meetings, and catering are all available in this perfectly situated location. Kahuna perfectly blends eating, drinking and fun, making it a way of life. The decor is vintage chic with a 70’s surfer theme vibe, with modern influences. Retro long boards hang from the walls with the decor accented by rich colors, cliff stone and beach woods. An amazing patio will remind you of sunsets at a Malibu beach house. This is the fresh and satisfying place to do it! Kahuna can accommodate large groups, full catering menu and is the perfect location for breakfast, lunch, Happy Hour and dinner & drinks with friends and co-workers with FREE valet parking.
