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

A very unassuming place, and the people working here aren't the warmest you will ever encounter, but the food was excellent. The portions are absolutely huge. The Kahlua pork and chicken katsu mixed plate was my favorite. Their spam musubi was great as well. A final note, the restaurant was right by our hotel and closed at 10 so both... More

Saw this tiny little restaurant and stopped in for a look. Only four tables but a large menu. We ordered some traditional Hawaiian and Chinese for takeout. Generous portions, great prices, and very good taste!

My husband and I went here 4 of the 5 days we were in West Maui. The owners are very friendly, and it always seemed to be a mixture of locals and tourists in there. If you're in the area, try this place out!

Tried ono kau kau mixed plate as a break from Lahaina crowds and prices. This is a take out place with a few tables in it. Large extensive menu with mostly Chinese and some hawaiian/local food. Nothing fancy or earth shattering here. Good prices and hot made to order food. Ordered loco moco which was hot and generous. Eggs were... More

I wish I had discovered this on my first day instead of my last. What a great meal. I had the pork mixed plate and it was outstanding.

Wow. Such fresh, delicious, plentiful food! We had curry and the hamburger combo. Both were enough to share with even a little leftover. Get takeout, then crack open your favourite bottle of wine and enjoy the ambience of your lanai. Simple and satisfying.
