Gem in Waipahu

Bento plates are great. You go though the line and pick up the poke and seafood that you want. Along the way don't forget to pick up a few bento boxes and drinks. Always busy always good.

Don't expect a sit down dinner. This is good local fare you take away. We went in and picked up mikali chicken, fish cakes, fried chicken and garlic chicken. The fish cakes were delicious. I wish we would of got more. Our second favorite was the mikali chicken. Great flavor. The other chicken was good but a bit dried out.... More

Located away from the bustle of Waikiki this small takeout is well worth the drive. This is the ultimate plate lunch deli and it maybe insufficient to call it plate lunch. Each time I go there is usually some new item on the menu. The cuisine is always creative and inspired. Nursing gout I needed a vegetarian menu (not something... More

Talk about 'variety'... we had it all! We did a quick pick up so that we could be 'on our way' to spend a day riding around the island. Ended up having a impromptu picnic by the beach near the East side. Never fails - eating at the beach makes everything all the more delicious. Didn't know what we were... More

We ordered the fried chicken, it was too dry because we ordered dark and got breast. We ordered the spam masubi, it was too sweet. We ordered Ahi, Marlin and Octopus poke...it was all perfect! Expect a line but it does go by very fast. There are plenty of people behind the counter to take your order.

Take out only. Good parking. Mother's Day lunch line stretched out the door, took 30 minutes in total. Army of young men efficiently processing the orders. Tasty Poke and Okazuya. Not fancy or creative, but basic satisfying flavors.

Tanioka's has a large selection of local snacks and food. The poke (raw fish and other shellfish) is great! I love the musubi's and fishcake. Great for box lunches.
