Hawaiian soul food dive - awesome!

This little place can be very hard to find as it's on the backside of a strip mall, facing away from other businesses... It's worth finding your way here though for fantastic food. I followed some online advice and ordered Moco Loco with bacon rice (an option that doesn't appear on the menu, but... read more

What happened? This place used to be great. It is filthy now. Floors are sticky. Grime in the corners. Food was not fresh. Chicken Katsu smelled bad. Char Siu was tough and probably old.

Been visiting this little cafe for many years for authentic, freshly made Hawaiian and Japanese food. It's your typical little neighborhood place with no frills, no fuss, but homey and inviting. My favorite is the vegetable Egg Fu Young. My husband loves the Loco Moco. Best potato-Mac this side of the islands and the Chinese chicken salad is a nice... More

Good local "ono" food . We were craving won ton min but got to TNT right as they were closing. They happily accommodated us as if we were old friends. But then again - we are regulars there! Their home made portugese sausage patties are the best.

I came here specifically just for the shave ice. Best shave ice prices I've ever seen ($1.25 for small), but the ice just wasn't my style. Very crunchy. The syrups were tasty though. Will update review once I've had their local food.
