“Home style Hawaiian food on the Mainland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

We arrived at a weekday around 1 o'clock and had trouble finding a parking spot on the restaurant's large lot. The place was filled with a lunchtime crowd and there were a lot of Hawaiian faces and native style T-shirts. Always a good sign. The menu was large and had most of the usual popular Hawaiian dishes, including great combination plates. While the Spam musubi looked great, I had the charsiu plate with chicken and Asian noodles as well as the usual two scoops of rice and two small plates of pickled vegetables. The staff was friendly and we got our orders quickly. While everything was great, I concentrated on my favorite, charsiu, the specially prepared pork. Unfortunately it was not up to standard. It was too greasy and even the hot Chinese mustard could not give it the proper taste. My dining companions were satisfied with the food, but did not rated it outstanding. If the meat in my special plate would have been better, I would have given the restaurant five stars.
