Unlikely setting (drab mini-mall) for this delightfully tasty restaurant! Looks like a slightly shabby fast food place (the restroom condition was reminiscent of a freeway truck stop), but the food is to die for! Kahlua pork with cabbage was fantastic -- tender, succulent pork served up with rice and salad was out of this world. Not gourmet, mind you -... More

Well let start by saying the food there is delicious!! I recommend the order with pork short ribs very tasty and juicy!! (they give you more than enough) for a very good price. The macaroni salad is divine. And the katsu was delicious!! They also have a selection of different soda from Hawaii. I truly would recommend this place. Very... More

Food is pretty good! I got half chicken, half katsu, and both were delicious. The chicken was very juicy and flavorful, not dry at all. It was absolutely delicious! The katsu was quite good too; the breading wasn't too thick although I mostly only ate half the breading per piece, and there was a good amount of chicken to balance... More

If you've never tried Lau-Lau you must! Most Hawaiian restaurants are service chicken tenders and some terayaki and calling it Hawaiian, but not here. You can get the Pork Lau Lau (pork wrapped in taro leaf and steamed) or the Katsu or even Spam Musubi for a taste adventure. Every meal, even the lower priced lunch specials come with rice,... More

Tried several different Hawaiian restaurants in the area, and none compare to this restaurant. The food is well seasoned and flavorful, and the staff is very accomodating. They want you to be happy and are very good about substituting side dishes. The other places don't usually do this. Hawaiian Drive Inn gives large portions at a great time. My family... More

I have been to this Tully Road establishment numerous times over the past several years for lunch.... at least once and sometimes as many many as 4 times in a month. The lunch plates are consistent.... Well prepared and tasty. The Chicken Katsu is good with the Katsu sauce to the side. The BBQ chicken is one of my favorites.... More
