I live in Aiea and based on TripAdvisor reviews decided to purchase a box of Manapua for the office. Then I went back a second time. The manapua are very fresh and tasty. I ordered kalua pork the first time; I thought it should have had more of a smoky flavor; it was rather plain. Today I ordered the standard char siu and they were excellent. The baked and steamed breads of the manapua are excellent. Cost is also reasonable. Lots of deep-fried selections that look intriguing, but I am not really into that cuisine. You will need to watch the hours of operation; they open early in the morning and close mid-afternoon (5AM to 3PM weekdays). Note: This is not a restaurant - it is a deli that you can purchase items from and take them elsewhere to eat.
