I was requested to bring manapuas back to the mainland when I left Honolulu, so off to Libby's Manapua! This year I took my sister with me and we had a blast. Prior to arrival, I looked at their website that has current prices and planned my order. We walked in at 7am to an empty shop, placed... read more

The pork Manapua were awesome but the pork hash were absolutely wonderful. Have to make a trip back.

If you are going to visit Libby's Manapua Shop, you come here for one thing and one thing only...The Steamed Charsiu Manapua. It's so soft,fluffy, and sure hits the spot. I also recommend you getting some Pork Hash to compliment your Manapua as well . If you are going back to the Mainland, you should buy a box of Manapua... More

We were anxious to try manapua during our vacation in Honolulu, and we were told that Char Hung Sut in Chinatown had the best in the city. Unfortunately, they are on vacation, and were closed. On the recommendation of a local, we tried Libby's and loved the products they serve. We tried pork and chicken manapua, pork hash, and rice... More

I remember coming here for Manapua when I was in high school 40 years ago and the place is still great. Everything is super fresh and one thing I would say is that for the regular manapua the pork filling is not as flavorful as some places, but still really great. The bun is slightly sweet and very soft and... More

Their pork Manapua is the best I have ever have!! I love it. Always make a trip here when on the island. Plus take a couple boxes home. They will prepare them for shipping. I crave these! I even had to have a box shipped to the mainland once to satisfy my craving. Just make sure you check their hours,... More

Libby's is one of the go to places if you're looking for hot n fresh manapua. Whenever you see the Pink box, you know it's Libby's in da house. Visitors might wonder what the big deal is about manapua, or dim sum as they call it on the mainland, but here in Hawai'i, especially on Oahu, Libby's for breakfast or... More

I alternate between Chun Wah, Char Hung Sut, Aiea Manpua & Libby's. Is Libby's still using the same manapua recipe as I remember it tasting better before; substantial & flavorful. Ordered the char siu and chicken manapua which were just okay. On my scale of would- I -brave -the -traffic to go there, I would have to say I'd go... More

I have not been to Libby's Manapua Shop for quite awhile. The prices have gone up and the menu on Tripadvisor needs to have its prices updated. That being said, I was pretty disappointed in the food. I tried the Charsui Pork Manapua, Chicken Manapua, Halfmoon, and Pepeyau. The taste and quality didn't do it for me. The fillings on... More

If you are a local, you either like Libby Manapua or Char Hung Sut in Chinatown. These are usually the go-to places when Hawaii locals want manapua. For those of you that are visiting, you should really try some of the truly "local" foods and manapua is right at the top of the list of local eats. Manapua is the... More
