“Know before you go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

...where it is, and look at the photo on the website. This out of the way locals favorite has no sign out front. But you will be very glad you found it. If it is busy, no worries. You will have a great time watching the variety of people who stop in - and you will be the only non-native in there.

Oh, the food? It is scrumptious! I had a Kailua pork salad, if you can believe it, a meat filled quesadilla topped with garlic aioli on a cabbage salad with an amazing fresh tomato relish. SO had a chicken teriyaki sandwich he loved and fries we both proclaimed to be among the best we ever had. Total bill with a couple of Cokes was $20. This is mostly a takeout place, but has a few picnic tables out front. Enjoy this favorite of the Kauaiians and pretend you are a local for a day.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

So, what do you get when you mix an industrial area with a restaurant? You get great local food!!!

Don't go here on your last day...they cater when they can and their hours may sometimes differ from what you expect.

Make the effort to find this place and thank me later.

“Great Local Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very good local type food and lots of it at a great price. Best lunch we had in Lihue. We would definity go back to this place. Only downfall is there is nowhere to sit inside as its a takeout place. They do have a couple picnic tables outside you can use or better yet ...take it to the beach !!

“Great Plate Lunch place on Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This place serves great plate lunches at reasonable prices. Had the special and the teriyaki beef was excellent. The musibi was also very good. This is the place to stop at if you want local food. Only serves to go but has picnic benches outside to eat at

“Excellent for the amount of food and price!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We loved it. A lot if food so if you are not too too hungry order the smaller plates. The Korean chicken was awesome. No inside seating. But tables outside. Would definitely go back.
