The servings were generous and the owner was friendly. No issues with kids being a little bit noisy.

My family is from Hawaii. The ribs, katsu and sticky rice...just like back home. (If you haven't tried the spam musubi, go for it. You might be like Mikey, and like it...)

Authentic fast food from Hawaii has arrived on the west coast. Interesting twist with rice and a traditional approach. Menu is totally unlike any other fast food. Take home really works.
