QUICK. Wasn't even finished ordering when my food was ready. Guava chicken and beef stew. Yummy plate lunch. And homemade butter mochi for dessert. Been looking all over the island for butter mochi and finally found it. Good food.

Excellent fish entrees for lunch! We picked up onaga with ginger green onion sauce and also salmon with garlic butter sauce -- both lunch plates served with brown rice and macaroni salad. Not the best mac salad but overall, both entrees ($8.25 each) were very good! Next time, I would like to try the Roast Turkey with Homemade Stuffing, Hamburger... More

Local eatery that I remembered for great comfort food. Thought I revisit this place since in the neighborhood and remembering its speciality - baked ahi & guava chicken... I was so disappointed in the look and taste, so sorry to see another eatery lost its pizzazz :-(

In Kalihi area, few attraction for tourist but I can't deny to come here when I remember the smell and flavor in my mind. Not far from airport so that I sometimes stop by before heading to Waikiki and eat at Alamoana beach park. Guava chicken is my favorite! But i never be disappointed with any other menus.

Been here twice and must say that the plate lunch is a cut above most. Done well with choice of white/brown rice and mac/toss salad, even on mini plates. Prices are very reasonable as well. The baked mahi was really good; I shared the regular and was still enough. Limited (hard bench) seating outside. Staff is very friendly.

Thank sheiksan
