Make sure to bring your patience when you eat or pick up dinner here. Food is good and price is reasonable but the place needs to add another wait person during busy dinner hours. Expect 20 minutes or more wait to get your food. That is definitely too long for a wait for a fast food place. Even called in... More

We came here for a quick and cheap eat. It definitely satisfied both criteria but that was about it. We had the local food: grilled garlic ono and the locomoco. Both weren't very good but you get what you pay for. If I were to come back, I'd try the Chinese food but barring that, probably would rather eat elsewhere.... More

At first glance this place doesn't look like much and we almost didn't stop. Boy are we glad that we did, this place has the best kalua pork I have ever eaten! The portions are huge and the price is very reasonable. In fact, it was so good we went back the next night to get some more. It can... More

This is a small local restaurant that serves American and Chinese cuisine. My husband and I shared two dishes - vegetable fried rice and tofu with vegetables. Both were tasty and the prices were reasonable.

This looked like a great little local restaurant and the menu looked decent. The lady that helped us was very friendly, but the food wasn't really that great. I ordered the lau lau and it was really fatty. My wife ordered it also and didn't finish hers. Maybe some of the other items are better, but we didn't bother to... More

This is a review of their breakfast. It's not the best and I've had better local breakfast food. My husband had the loco moco and i had the cornbeef omelet. It wasn't impressive. There wasn't any decaf coffee, tea, fresh juice or hot chocolate served so that was a bit disappointing for me. The service was excellent. The bathroom coThis... More

This little gem is a great combination of Chinese and local food. Portions were good size and reasonable prices. There are only 4 tables so you may have to share your table and it isn't fancy but very much worth the stop for some amazing food! We ate here several times and always had a delicious meal with great fast... More

This is a no frills place with a dated interior and limited seating. We did take out here a couple of times during our stay. It is a mix of Chinese and Local Plates. Total comfort food for us. Rather eat here instead of Panda Express. You get a lot of food for the price and we shared three entrees... More

Easy to fine, very small place but very good service. Hawaiian food with a Chinese twist to it! Big portion and good prices!! Good alternative when in Lahaina!

Read all kinds of good reviews about this place, decided to try it out as it was across the street from our go-to grocery store during our stay. Really small, 6 tables were all taken, so we opted for takeout - combo plates were awesome, alot of good tasting, wholesome food for reasonable price.... Half of it was gone before... More
