Love this place for any meal. They have the best food we've found on the north shore if you are looking for island food. They have great deserts also. The peanut butter rolls are great if you like peanut butter. The portions are huge so if you aren't a big eater you'll probably want to share an entre.

Very good Hawaiian food. The place must be doing something good. There were lots of people there for dinner that night. They had plenty of room outside for everyone. Teri chicken and roast pork were top notch.

Our family was visiting Hawaii from upstate New York and papa ole's did the catering for my brothers rehearsal dinner. The food was delicious so we decided to go back twice for breakfast. Everyone was so friendly and the food was, as stated before, wonderful!! I highly recommend if you are in the Hau'ula area to stop by!

Nothing fancy, just good food and lots of it. Great prices for big portions. Check the white board for specials - and to see if they've run out of something. It can be really busy so expect to wait a little while for your food. Well worth the wait.

The food is good. The portion is large. The price is reasonable. The downside is that the specials can be sold out very early.

Not saucy but the teriyaki flavor was charred into the chicken, omg so good! It came with a little bit of raw green cabbage, macaroni salad and... More

The food is local and delicious, but this trip I was on a mission to get the illusive peanut butter rolls. Warm rolls with the most delicious, warm, peanut butter frosting on top. These are delicious. Call ahead to see if they've got them that day. Thursday seems to be the lucky day as they're closed on Wednesdays.

We went there and had garlic shrimp, kalbi and garlic fries. So good! The sauce for the shrimp was so flavorful and was soaked into the rice. The kalbi was tender and the marinade delicious. We went back later for the fries and they were so good!!
