Big plates, tiny location

I'm fairly impressed by this little restaurant. And, I do mean *little* restaurant. It is TINY. There are maybe four or five tables inside, and two or three small tables on the sidewalk right out front. And the parking lot? A hot mess, which I can imagine only getting worse when the Burger Lounge... read more

I just tried the new 3445 Midway location. Had the Kalbi Plate Lunch. Mac was perfect, Rice was perfect. Kalbi was almost perfect. They are just getting started, so I'll cut them a little slack. The staff could not have been friendlier and the restaurant could not be cleaner. I'll be back!

This is one of my husband and I's favorite place to eat! The hawaiian teriyaki chicken plate is to die for!! Also, love the homemade lemonade, it doesn't matter, all flavors are so delicious!

Finally got a chance to try this place out last Saturday. We were there right a lunch time and we did expect it to be very busy. We didn't expect it to be complete chaos. Very small place, with only one employee working up front when we arrived We waited in line, then waited quite a while more once we... More

First let me tell you that this is across the colleges. Second the place is very casual and very tiny. So there might be a wait especially lunch time. Okay now the food. We ordered Portuguese sausage and eggs average, loco moco good but not fantastic. Malasadas too oily but of course its deep fried i think they didn't have... More

The Kalbi is a must try! Enjoyed an excellent lunch with lava chicken combo, rice and macaroni salad. Casual and friendly.

This little hole in the wall place has some pretty good food. Kalbi ribs were tasty, my son had the loco moco which he liked. I think anything with gravy is good, I tried his hamgurger patty that was served with the loco moco and it was good. Potato salad which you can have as a choice side, I would... More

I planned a family reunion for 52 people and found this restaurant online. I live in Oregon and was nervous about finding caterers in California that would have great food, in good quantities at reasonable prices. This place was great! Mo spoke with me multiple times about the order and always reassured me they would have it ready on time... More

We lived on Oahu for ten years... and have visited many, many times since.... so we are always looking for good local food. Last weekend we were in San Diego for a family reunion and one of our stops was at Homestyle Hawaiian. I should have realized from the outside... that the inside wouldn't be so good. The door was...
