This spot has been serving since forever. Do not expect red carpet treatment, expect good honest food. A favorite of my relatives who were born on Kauai. Leave your pretensions at the door and respect the locals.

Different but good from what I was expecting. We were warned by our travel book and a couple tour guides that the service could be rude to tourists. We did not find this to be the case at all. The portions are big and priced low. We did not try the pie but saw at least five people come in and get them to go. They must be delish!

Good simple menu, local environment, quick service, good prices. Not fancy, and as long as you are expecting simple local food and a bit of old kauai atmosphere you shouldn't be disappointed.

Not only great food, but it was like stepping back in time. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Kaua'i

Saimin is comfort food for us. Whenever we go to Kauai, our first stop for lunch is Hamura. We order the saimin special with two chicken skewers. This is not a fancy place, counter seating only, it's truly a "hole in the wall" and they only take cash. If you have room for dessert, the lilikoi chiffon pie is tasty!!
