If you were a tourist, definitely need gps to guide you to this hidden local eating place. It is located in an industrial ark with very limited parking spaces. We were lucky that someone just pulled out and we got in the parking space. When first walked in, we could feel immediately the heat inside, very uncomfortable at first. There... More

Easy to miss, it's the blue building with green picnic tables on the corner in an industrial park. Had Marc’s special plate. Beef stew (tender and good)' chicken and teriyaki beef with rice and a salad: $10.75. It was large and could have been split but as I was by myself so I ate the whole thing. They also have... More

Researched Mark's as part of our itinerary for grinds on an R&R trip. Had the Loco Moco! Large portions, great taste. Great way to start off the day.

Usually just locals lined up for the plate lunches, because visitors have to know where it is to find it. Lots of tables outside -- great choice of meals. Chicken katsu and Beef stew are favorites of ours!

Best ahi plate. Salad. Macaroni salad. Rice. Cooked to perfection. Very fresh. Good sized portions. Something like $13. Incredible. Definitely go again!

Hard to decide what to eat here, so much local fare to chose from. Really reasonable prices and loved it all. Friends had told us about this place and although off the beaten track, it proved to be a real treasure. We wished we had revisited Mark's before leaving the island. Definitely recommend and we will return.

This is more of a commercial kitchen that has a side business of retail food sales. So while there may not be any seating areas in the place and a few tables outside. you take food to go to the beach or the park to eat. They make wonderful plates and musubi that are very good.

We came here for the great food. It's off the beaten path in an industrial area, but don't let that deter you. The food is amazing! Get the Mark's sampler plate. It has a little of the best of everything. The beef teriyaki was really good! The chicken Katsu and Korean beef were delicious. We also had the daily catch... More

We went here 2 nights in a row for dinner because the food is excellent, the portions are substantial, and it's very reasonable for dinner. They serve their food traditional "plate lunch" style with 2 scoops of white rice, macaroni salad, and then your choice of meat. They have daily specials too which change from day to day, the fist...

This is a good little place to stop and pick up plate lunch to take to the beach or picnic or plane ride. Katsu chicken is very good. So is Teri Beef and Beef stew. BIG portions.They also have burgers.And packaged treats to pick up.It is in the industrial area of Puhi.Kind of wierd location but worth looking for.
