3rd times the charm

Day 3 of my short trip home and I was becoming a little discouraged by the uninspiring cuisine thus far, but a quick lunch at this familiar restaurant gave me new hope. It is a popular little restaurant and although a little hard to find with no distinguishing signage, just ask the locals or use... read more

Good food. Have it served family style so everyone gets a chance to try. Ask for their recommendations. You can get it to go at the walk up window, or try to get a seat inside at this popular local spot

Classic Pho joint with Chinese flavored dishes. BYOB option. Wide menu selection and really good service. The Pho was good and had some hint of five spice.

Like most successful restaurants, the owner takes some deserved time off and lets others do the cooking. Always a mistake. Other folks don't care as much. I stayed away from here for almost a year because no matter how many chances I gave her restaurant, it was never good after she left and rather tasteless - you know, food cooked... More

Excellent, off the beaten path, but easy to find place. Mostly locals know this gem, but we found them online. Food is excellent & priced decently - service is warm & friendly. Love the parasols hanging from the ceiling & just wish we had this food available back home in Oregon.

I moved to Hilo two months ago and have been here four times and all four times the food was really good. The Bun Bo Hue was a little over the top as far as hot goes, but it is a spicy soup, however I do not like it so spicy, but it was excellent. Pho was great, and Bun... More

I haven't tried all of the dishes but go here once every other month. It's a 'mom and pop' type restaurant with a 'welcoming vibe' I find it hard to order other dishes as I like the spring rolls with noodles but the chicken Pha is great too. Service is fast. I think the prices are very reasonable. They also... More

The pho soup is super! Our Grandchildren love it and the spring rolls are also a favorite. There are many items on the menu that our good, but our family go to food on a rainy day or when you're not feeling well is the pho.

I really used to like them. Been there dozens of times in the past. Last time was six months ago after a bad meal. May be another six or more after this one. Kung Pao chicken was tasteless, honey chicken was old, reheated, badly breaded, and too vinegary. Brown rice was gummy, and cost was too high for the poor... More
