Fresh and hearty food

The food is fresh, flavorful, and well-portioned. The desserts look tantalizing in the case, and after eating one of the lemon bars, I can say that looks are not deceiving. It's a tad pricey (but you are in Honolulu, after all), but not outrageously so.

I usually come here with my son after a visit to the Children's Discovery Center. It's nearby and convenient. They have a patio dining area and it's actually quite pleasant, only thing is there are a lot of birds. I have a one year-old son who always drops food on the ground, so the birds tend to flock to him.... More

I grew up in Hawaii and miss the food here so much. Every year when I come home to visit my mom, this place is always on the list. I somehow find the time to come here and enjoy their shoyu chicken. I usually get that with brown rice and greens. Always with the shoyu sauce on the rice. The... More

Have a great variety of plate lunch meals and salads. Cozy small restaurant in Ward shopping center across from Ward theaters. Fish offerings are fresh and I really enjoy everything from the Katsu to the meatloaf. Definitely worth checking out

My family of 10 was looking for a casual restaurant that also provided good food for lunch. This restaurant did not disappoint. I had the mixed plate dish and chose the shonyu chicken and beef stew and both were excellent. I also tried the fried fish off of my sister's plate and that was also delicious; the outside was nice... More

We stopped by here for dinner after diving. Relaxing environment, great food and great prices. Portions are generous and everyone really liked their choices.

Good food, not great, portions are not generous. Kinda spendy if it's just lunch your planning on. The brownies are spot on

Located in Ward Center. Granted the menu selection has eye appeal, but lacks in the delivery. Ordered the beef stew. I'm sure a can of Dinty Moore stew might out cut their stew. Had a few pieces of fat chunk, which should have been removed. Can't say much for the others items. Try another spot.

Good variety of selection on menu: salads, deli sandwiches and wraps, local plate lunches, other entrees, a keiki menu, desserts and "chef's pick". Service was prompt and friendly. The portions are huge in the local plate lunches: with one large scoop of rice, great tasting macaroni salad (choice of salad) and stew and chicken. The stew was slightly salty, but... More
