We were staying nearby, and this place was recommended by our hosts, but the food was average at best -- the chicken katsu was a little overcooked and kind of dry -- and more expensive than we had anticipated. We decided what to order based on a menu that must have been *very* old, because the 2-piece side order of... More

Sam's is one of my usual places for Take out on the way home to Nuuanu. Its been here for a very long time and I highly recommend calling ahead your order so that you dont need to wait during the lunch/dinner crowd. This is also the perfect place to order Bento's from (3 order min) for the beach or... More

If you were expecting to have a pastrami sandwich or a corned beef sandwich you're at the wrong place. If you want a inexpensive local place to have a good meal, you are at right place. Korean plate lunch is perfect to take top the beach, picnic or work. Plates are under $10 each. Order your main meal and select... More

We tried this delicatessen on Nuuanu Avenue simply because my wife had seen photos and read some reviews about the restaurant on another website. Among other things, we had their chicken wings and mochiko chicken which everyone seemed to applaud in their reviews. I'll agree that their portions are generous; however in my honest opinion, their taste is understated and... More
