This isn't a restaurant, it is a place where mochi is made and sold. Now, I love mochi and this is some of the best I've had. If you don't like mochi...you won't like it. Some people don't like the texture which is kind of gummy, but I love the chewiness of mochi. And the fillings are not "normal" for... More

Wanted to try these while staying in the Kapoho area. We bought an assortment of these little treats and brought them home to sample. I can hosestly say that I am not a fan and most of them ended up getting thrown out.

I thought I was walking into a bakery where I would find pastries and other baked goods, maybe I was naive and simply didn't realize the type of treats they were making, but they weren't what I was expecting when we got back to the hotel 2-3 hours later and sat down to eat them, unfortunately most of them ended...

This lovely place is definitely worth the stop. They are so friendly and helpful. They will offer you samples to help you decide. The strawberry mochi were PHENOMENAL!

We recently visited Hilo and based on the reviews, wanted to try some mochi. We've never had it, but we have to agree with all the glowing reviews here. It's a pounded rice paste formed over all kinds of tasty fillings. The strawberry ones are really incredible, but honestly, I liked the simple adzuki bean filling. For people not familiar... More

Had the freshest, most delicious mocha! We tried the strawberry, lilikoi, coconut, and the plain with adzuki. They were all extremely fresh and the flavor was very bright and went really well with the soft mochi.

We were fortunate enough to have been exposed to the Two Ladies Kitchen a few years back and have been back EVERYTIME we are in Hilo. Mochi is the reason for stopping, strawberry, peach and lilikor! Two Ladies Kitchen is truly our first stop after picking up our rental car. First their products are always fresh. If you can't find... More

I am a mochi lover - buy it in airports, 27 varieties, etc. But the best place for Mochi, and learning to love Mochi if you have never tried it, is at Two Ladies. The fresh strawberry and lilikoi varieties are my favorite. Reasonably priced for the quality and love that goes into each. And if you haven't tried mochi... More

Amazing mochi - need I say more? Well, yes, this review requires more. ;) Definitely call ahead if you want to order anything specific. The fruit mochi are great - I really enjoyed a fresh peach mochi in October 2014. I love their lilikoi mochi, and of course the brownie filled mochi too. Great stuff!

Two Ladies Kitchen is a Japanese confectionary shop. Known for their Strawberry Mochi. They fill the mochi (pounded sweetened rice) with 1 whole strawberry and sweetened red azuki bean paste. It is delish. But I also found something else I like at Two Ladies, it is Lilikoi mochi. Must place to visit if you like Japanese sweets.
