Happen to find this place via Yelp and was surprised that it was categorized as a Japanese restaurant with the cowboy western name. Once I arrived, I then realized by looking at their extensive menu of items, this is really a plate lunch/dinner place. As the other people said, the interior is filled with mismatched furniture, books on bookshelves and... More

After our morning hike to Diamond Head, we came down Monsarrat Avenue as this was the quickest route back to our hotel the Waikiki Banyan. Just past the Diamond Head Market & Grill, I stopped at the Pioneer Saloon to look at the menu and decided to order take-out. It’s hard to describe the décor, other than an eclectic mix... More

Located in the Diamond head area. Open air feel of a restaurant with a saloon look. Mismatched tables and chairs very fun. Book shelves line the walls filled with antiques to look at while your food is being cooked. Order your food from the counter. Very personable and knowledgeable employee working the counter to answer any questions and make suggestions.... More

One of my favorite she's here is the cream of salmon! it is just to die for I can't say enough good things about it! It comes with rice and a homemade pasta or potato salad and they are both yummy sometimes the veg in the dish changes from okra to asparagus but they are both good. I know it's... More

My boyfriend and I both had the garlic ahi and it did not disappoint. We both ate for less than $20.

They make the best grilled saba in town. My friends have tried other dishes and loved it. We have gone back numerous times and never disappointed.

Thank you Honolulu transit system for not running the busses very often on Sunday. We decided instead to walk back from Diamond Head trail to our condo in Waikiki. We happened to walk past this restaurant. The smell coming out of the door was fantastic. Having just done the hike we were hungry. I had the chicken Matsu while my... More

If your interested in eating more like the locals this is the place for you. Just outside of Waikiki between the Honolulu Zoo and Diamondhead. Full plate dinner plus drink for $12. The Garlic Grilled Ahi was great. Worth the short cab ride from Waikiki

This place was recommended to us by a local and did not disappoint. All of the food was fresh and great. It was a little hot/stuffy inside for my taste but not unbearable. Prices were really reasonable as well.
