This little hide away used to be located in a great spot down the road, they moved ...I guess to see it the could drone up more business..but, if the customer service sucks...well.....So my granddaughter visited this establishment, we were on a time crunch and decided to just get a few bottles of water to hold us for an hour...

After a day of hiking, we were looking for a place for 15 to eat. We did not realize this was a take out place but the owner set us up on the sidewalk and went out of his way to accommodate us. The food was great and we will remember the experience always. A must if traveling thru Hilo.

An excellent lunch stop. It looks a bit dive-y but the pork/sweet potato burrito with coconut cilantro rice (Hula burrito) was amazing. Exceptionally tasty and fresh.

My husband and I were visiting our son and his girlfriend in Hilo when they brought us to this restaurant for dinner. I must admit, we were taken aback by its "hole-in-the -wall" appearance; it was a beautiful night, so we chose to sit outside at one of its two tables. They had eaten here several times, and were happy... More

From first glance of this place you might be inclined to find a place more visually appealing, it would be a great mistake to pass this place up. It's a very small place with a few and I mean few as in three little tables. We walked in and were greeted by a smiling owner/chef who gave us a quick... More

Walked by this place many times but this time we stopped. The food was incredibly flavored with a delicious combination of spices. Plenty of vegetarian options. I had the vegetarian quesadilla-best ever, friends had the vegan version which was just as awesome and the vegetarian burrito which was also just as good. We all loved the main course. The salsa...

Was craving burritos one day, and wanted to check out a local place. Went in and was greeted by the friendliest gentleman. He suggested getting the "wet burrito", I'm not one to question someones suggestion, especially when they are as adamant as he was about how good it tasted. I was feeling on the adventurous side, so I agreed enthusiastically.... More
