Probably the best decent joint in town. Went there several times during our stay. You don't have many food choices in Molokai and we thought that this was better than the rest. Still bad, but bearable..

The lady servicing us was the nicest, most patient when helping us. Our food came quickly and was good. Mama’s Korner is somewhere I would return to ~

First time here, I had the fish & chips. Husband had fried Saiman. Both of us were disappointed. The two pieces of fish were "ok" fries were anything but crispy. The fried Saiman was, in his own words, just ramen noodles with some vegetables and...a little meat. Wished we had gone to the Ono fish & chips food truck behind the Dive Shop.More

This is totally your local kine grindz plate lunch type of place. Nothing fancy, but good basic local comfort food that is freshly prepared and tasty. I had the breakfast wrap and I have to say, the looks didn't match the tasty. When I first...opened up the wrapper, it was uninviting, but once I bit into it, it was blissfully delirious. There was a lot going on inside and every about it was in total disguise by the plain looking tortilla wrapper. My partner had the double cheese burger. Same thing, it didn't look like much, but it was supper tasty. Something about the seasoning made it so delicious. It's all about the food here, so don't go there expecting cloth napkins. Go and enjoy some tasty freshly made local style comfort food.More

Trip Advisor comments suggested that the Mahmahi burger was wonderful so we dropped in but there was no mahi that day and the hamberger was bland and I would not recommend it.

Back home this would be called a greasy spoon diner here very far from the truth. First I read where the person serving had attitude. Our encounter was far different gal very social and pleasant. Turns out her sister worked where we were staying and...another sister had just moved back from D.C. close to where we are from. Not a huge selection on breakfast, but I like that because it makes it easier to decide. No complaints on portion or taste in all very good. We dined outside a couple tables down from 2 local LEOs which was cool.More

A little slow on the service when busy, but worth the wait. Early morning stop is best. Great salads.

Good local beef and large portions at a great price. We ate outside at the little tables. There are not many eating options on Molokai, and this is a good choice.

We had Korean chicken and hamburger steak. Both were delicious. I took off 1 star because 1. The area they prepare food, cashier and everything else is tiny and does not look very clean;2. They gave our food to another party without confirming;3. I also...didn’t like they put Mac N cheese is every meal (but that’s Hawaii way)More

Maka's is simply a little local deli. We stopped there on a Sunday morning when not much is open in Kaunakakai. We ordered the breakfast wrap, one with meat, one without. They were great! Had to walk next door for coffee and juice but had...the fun of an outside table with rooster and chickens for company. Part of the charm of Molokai.More

We have tried the saimin at a couple of places on Molokai and this is the closest to the real thing...but still lacks the great flavour. For some reason, there are few veggies in Molokai saimin...a few shreds of cabbage and that is it....
