Royal Kitchen is a hole in the wall, but they have a great Hawaiian food called baked manapua. It is a stuffed Hawaiian bun. The bread is slightly sweet and they stuff them with things like pork, chicken, and purple sweet potato. This is real Hawaiian food.

This is the place to get baked manapua on Oahu. They have an assortment of different fillings such as char siu, portugese sausage, lup cheong, chicken, curry chicken, kalua pork, hot dog, sweet potato and I forget what else. They also have a small selection of Chinese food and my favorite is the chow fun noodles. Go early because the... More

We had several of the Manapua varieties available. Really liked the chicken curry and the char sui and even the hot dog was tasty. The bread is amazing so I imagine most of the fillings would be good. We had a hard time finding the Royal Kitchen using Google Maps walking directions and we were not able to park near... More

You have to find it downtown area but to me this is one of the best baked manapua to buy. It's best to order in advance for take out but when you get there you see so much other food that you want to but. Roast pork, pork hash, Char siu, rice cakes. All Yummy.

We were in search of great Char Siu Manapua and were not disappointed. We actually tried the Char Siu, Kahlua Pork and a few others. The staff was helpful and friendly and gave us delicious sweet rice cakes for the kids!

I always make a stop at Royal Kitchen when I'm on the island to pick up some of those yummy baked manapuas. My favorites are kalua pork, curry chicken, portugese sausage, and lup chong. I seriously miss that wonderful fluffy hawaiian bread that surrounds those fillings... it's the bread that makes all the difference. Please never go out of business!!... More

If you like Manapua as much as I do, this place is an absolute must. The Royal Kitchen is in a class of its own. I love bake Manapua. They have all kine. Can't visit outer islands without a few dozen. I grab 3, 1st dozen is mine.

OMG, run down to Maunakea Street and park on the street (legally at a meter) and venture to the Cultural Plaza on the canal side to Royal Kitchen. They have the manapua to die for! I had never tasted Black Sugar before and now I am hooked! Pork Hash is very good there too. Wash it down with an Island... More
