We were referred to this restaurant while we were vacationing in Laie, HI. The food was delicious and prices were very reasonable. We loved it so much we went several times.

Six of us had breakfast here and we all loved the food. Very large portions, large enough that average eaters could share an omlette or the pancakes. And the prices are great too.

I love this place and used to go all the time. I always got the standard chicken katsu. Before coming here, I hated mac salad, but they changed my view!

If you are in Oahu and heading to the North Shore do yourself a favour and put this place on the top of your list for food anytime of the day! We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. It may not look like much but it was probably the best food we ate on our week long stay in Oahu.... More

Once again don't let the lack of air conditioning or silverware fool you. This place is delicious and they serve you plenty for the money. We had spare ribs and chicken, they had run out of shrimp, and both plates were delicious. Definitely be back.

Very good grilled ahi. Interesting grab and go. Worth the money. Wife did not care for shrimp scampi. Rest of family enjoyed their selection. No credit cards but won't break the wallet. Staff very nice. Not 5 star, but didn't expect it to be. Worth a try.

Papa Oles has always been dear to us and continues to maintain its level of awesomeness. Highly recommend the Garlic Chicken and Kalbi ribs. The only downside is Papa Oles is cash only now, which is not the most convenient. They have an ATM in the entry way (with a $3.50 fee), but still not customer friendly.

Papa Ole's was recommended to us by our AirBnb host. Ordered the Loco Moco and we were surprised by the very generous portion size at a reasonable price. It was enough to feed two adults with leftovers, so bring your appetite. We ate breakfast there twice during our trip and enjoyed a large veggie omelette too. Can dine inside or... More
