My cousin suggested this place, and boy, what great food! It is a small place that all the locals know about, but really everyone needs to try. Several choices of Hawaiian plates, and Filipino and other local style food. A bit hard to find parking,...More

My wife and I used to frequent here back in the late 70's and early 80's. Food is still great, prices reasonable and portions are local boy portions. Keep it real. Thanks for not skimping on ingredients.

If you like local food, this is the place. Small but clean with friendly service and "oh so ono" local fare. Good menu offerings of local Hawaiian food, good portions and very reasonably priced. Frequented by locals and the occasional visitor to the islands. This...More
