I've eaten here at this Shiro's a few times and I always left feeling a little disappointed. That's because I rate all the Shiro's to the original one in Moiliili. Of course like most restaurants, things change as time passes, but I have to say, the food at all the Shiro's is not the same as it used to be.... More

So glad the Concierge at the Marriott told us about this place! I was told that's where she and her family would go for great saimin. I was craving lau lau and saimin and they had that as a combination! In fact, they had 64 combinations!!!! We brought some friends who never had saimin before and they were hooked after... More

They serve just about everything at this place. There was one thing we tried to get,but were unsuccessful; I forget what it was. We had tried various breakfast specials every morning. We weren't around for lunch, but there was plenty of variety from plate lunch to saimin. We will be back.

Accompanied by a native Hawaiin woman, knowing what to order, was a great benefit. We arrived around dinner time, 5PM. We were greeted by an "auntie", and seated immediately. She wasted no time in taking our drink order and presenting us both with menus. My companion suggested that I order something generic and I did, (noodles in a chicken broth).... More

We were vacationing at the Marriott in Ko Olin and decided that we didn't want to pay $5.00 to get a pair of underpants cleaned so we went to the laundry next door to this place. We figured this would be a good place to wait while the clothes were washing. WOW jackpot. The Saimin here was excellent. Saimin is... More

Stopped here several times during our 10 days staying at a Beach House in Eva Beach. Good affordable food, awesome takeout service. Kids would request McDonalds in the same plaza, but being on vacation we obviously wanted to try something a little different. Being a big fan of Pho we decided to try the Saimin and we weren't disappointed.

Some of the best saimin on the island. I love the huge selection of saimin that is available here at Shiro's. Another favorite of mine is the Chicken Fried Steak. Drowned in gravy adn cooked just right, I've been dining on this entry since the 1970's! I still love it today. Shiro's is a great family restaurant with good food... More

Shiro's is the quintessential Hawaiian Saimin eatery. Unpretentious and friendly, Shiro's serves up 60+ varieties of saimin. Everything from char siu pork to spam to kim chee. Located in Ewa Beach there are very few tourists here, so you can get a feeling of the 'real" Hawaii. Worth the drive for a unique experience.
