Excellent!

Went twice in 1 week. Ordered the korean chicken. My wife ordered the special. The servings are huge. Had enough for lunch the next day. Can't leave the place without having the butter mochi. Since it was on our way to the airport, picked up a couple of plates for the trip home. I had the quinoa... read more

This place is so good we went there 2x in one week! We love their loco moco, teriyaki chicken and beef! They also open until 8 which is a plus since many local restaurant closes early( many closes at 2:00).

We had the traditional Hawaiian plate lunch. The food was flavorful, and the price was low given the amount of food and the quality of the food. Mark's is purposely a low-key place, but I really wish they would invest in some umbrellas for the picnic table area. On the day of our visit it was simply too hot to... More

Zero ambience but great food. Katsu is hard to find where we live so it was great to have a good lunch plate with Katsu and rice. Just a heads up that one plate is enough for two people. We felt bad wasting so much food but my wife and I couldn't eat it all.

Very tasty plate lunch in a non-descript location. Local workers come here so it must be good. Loved every bite and and had leftover. Worth it if you want real plate lunch food and a good price. Worth every penny.

Love to stop at this place and what's more Mark's more "refined" catering menu was our selection at our wedding in Hanalei a few years ago. As a proud foodie I couldn't and our guests couldn't praise it enough!

Look for this place. Best plate lunch on Kauai. We had beef stew, teri chicken, chicken katsu, two scoops of rice and macaroni. I love getting beef stew at any rice plate place in Hawaii, but this was far and away the best beef that I have ever had. And great macaroni. Not easy to find. But worth the search.... More

This place deserves its high rating. The food was fantastic. The price was affordable. You could tell by the fact that it was packed full of locals that it's great food for the price. I got the chicken Kutsu combo plate and it was a loaded with chicken. If I had it over again, I'd get the "marks special" plate.
