“Authentic Hawaiian Food”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

The food here is typical of the plate lunches you might find in holes-in-the wall in Hawaii. Was pleasantly surprised that the food was pretty good. Hawaiian food is not for the health conscious...lost of fried food and rice, but still for a moment it felt like being back in the islands. Restaurant and bar area could be cleaner. Bar tender was excellent. Desert was a simple cookies and icecream mix, but excellent. Would recommend, but only if you love Hawaiian food.

“Just Like Home”
Reviewed February 24, 2011

What a great find in the middle of San Francisco. Just a small little hole in the wall with a few tables and quite the crowd. I had the chicken katsu and it was just like my mama used to make in the islands. The spam musubi was delicious too. They even had an authentic Hawaiian band visiting from Maui that evening, just like home... If you'er hungry for the islands, check this place out.
