My favorite Manapua

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

The food was good. We got Kahlua Pig, vegeterian, and Char sui manapuas and Saimin. We were visiting my sister, and had read reviews on tripadvisor & Yelp and had heard good things about the food. What we didn't know was how bad the local area was. There are tons of homeless people, and going by ones self or with... More

The only thing we ate here were the manapuas as we had been told by locals that this was their specialty. We tried the char sui, Kailua pig, and the sweet potato manapuas. All very tasty, but preferred the "meat" ones. The Hawaiian sweet bread was a great twist on the traditional manapua. Great value, great manapuas!

This is a great place to try. It is much like a kolache except that the bread is 10x better. The sweet Hawaiian bread makes this a great dish. We tried the Portuguese sausage, the Kailua Pig and another pork that had a sweeter taste, I just don't remember the name. The pig was the best and the Portuguese sausage... More

If you like manapua, and want to take something back to where you are traveling from. Give this place a shot. Reasonably priced and easy to take home, it's a great treat to bring to your loved ones.
