Glad we went. Came highly recommended by friends who have family nearby. Saimin is just not my thing I guess. Most of the family enjoyed theirs though. Best part was the Portuguese doughnuts!

This place gets a 3 for the food, but a 5 for the ambiance, making it a 4 rating over-all. The chicken bbq was not terrific. It wasn't horrible, but it was nothing to write home about. The saimin, well, you have to eat it....More

I've eaten saimin all over Hawaii. This was okay, but nothing special. The dashi (broth) was flavorful but quite salty. The noodles reminded me of S&S (which wasn't bad, just nothing special). I was expecting home made noodle, but was disappointed. Char sui was okay,...More

A very busy local place. Good food but the lines can be long. Seating is cramped and not comfortable. Cheap eats but cheap decor and friendly service.

Ordered the Saimin Special Soup. Excellent. Outstanding Service, Very cool old style Kauai atmosphere. Also ordered the chicken and beef skewers, they were over cooked and tough, but had a good flavor. Great experience if you want to experience how the locals eat.

Had the pulled pork sandwich. It wasn’t bad but have had better on the island. Service was quick but restaurant staff were very unwelcoming.

I have been getting into saimin lately, so when I was on Kauai last week, I was excited to visit Hamura. I had heard good things about the noodles and wanted to experience it for myself. I was not disappointed. A local place where you...More
