Hidden Gem in Hilo

If you are looking for quality Chinese or Vietnamese food, made with local fresh ingredients, do not miss Hilo Rice Noodle. It's a little hard to find but it is a go-to spot for Asian comfort food. I highly recommend their pho. Also, if you are gluten-intolerant, be sure to ask if the chef can... read more

The woman who rented us her house on the ocean told us this was her favorite Asian place. We drove up and down the street looking for the restaurant with the help of a GPS. We knew we were close but there was no indication that we were in an area that would hold a restaurant. It was totally industrial... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites! For Pho.soup nothing compares! The salt and pepper squid is simply delicious! They have a loyalty card, for take out orders. Eating there is highly recommended. Always consistent and fresh!!!

We were looking for Pho and wanted to try a new restaurant. I ordered number 23, the pork, chicken, shrimp and beef meatball with white round noodles, my husband ordered 24 with yellow egg noodles. They were very delicious with the accompanied bean sprouts, cilantro, and basil, but a bit too much onions. A great new find.

For the price you pay there other places in Hilo that are significantly better. This is a relatively popular restaurant but ... the place is old and the food is ok but not great.

Day 3 of my short trip home and I was becoming a little discouraged by the uninspiring cuisine thus far, but a quick lunch at this familiar restaurant gave me new hope. It is a popular little restaurant and although a little hard to find with no distinguishing signage, just ask the locals or use your GPS and you will... More

Good food. Have it served family style so everyone gets a chance to try. Ask for their recommendations. You can get it to go at the walk up window, or try to get a seat inside at this popular local spot

Classic Pho joint with Chinese flavored dishes. BYOB option. Wide menu selection and really good service. The Pho was good and had some hint of five spice.
