“Really good Musubi for cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Each musubi is pretty large. I'd say you need to eat 3-5 per person depending on how much you eat. Each musubi cost $2-$2.50. They taste great. It's really convenient that it's in the heart of Waikiki. If you're going on a day trip out to like Hanauma Bay or North Shore and don't know if you'll be able to get food, get some musubi to go and eat it like a packed lunch.

“Love it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Every time I stay in Waikiki, I have to have the bacon,egg & spam masubi. Ok, I have a few of them. It is that good. Also tried the other bento plates and is just as good also. I highly recommend this place if you need food to take sightseeing or just to the beach.

“Spam musubi goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Went here after googling "best musubi Waikiki" and came across iyasume. Reviews don't lie. Fresh tasty musubi. My favourites were spam and egg musubi and original spam musubi. Tried the spicy roe musubi too but didn't like it as much. Overall affordable and a great place for a quick bite! We took our musubis up to diamond head and ate lunch at the top. Spectacular lunch and view :)!

“Fresh musubi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Once you try their fresh musubi - made to order, you cannot go back to cold, rock-hard, and 2-day old ones at ABC store any more.

You get to choose contents to be included, and they also have set menus. I buy a couple and bring them to the beach - makes perfect lunch!

“Spam Musubi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

So this hole-in-the-wall place, down the middle of the block, but turning into the block, past a surf-board shack, actually had some good food! It is a small place, two small table if you wish to eat there (I have no idea why you would want to), but mostly people buy to take out. We ordered some spam musubi and they were all pretty good. We got spicy fried chicken with mayo, bacon & egg spam, cheese spam and original spam. You get them individually wrapped. Not that expensive. If you are a spam lover, you have to try!
