not impressive. average food. the worst part was they over-charge customers (may have been added tips but without mentioning it, a common practice in tourist areas), be aware!

This diner provided delicious food with many choices and flavors to choose from. The staff was not overly friendly but warmed up to us after a while. They weren't rude or anything but it took a while to get a smile out of them. Pancakes were very, very good and the fried rice was off the hook!! A little spam ain't never hurt no one! The atmosphere was, eh, but it's a diner so no surprises there. This felt like home cooking and I recommend this place to anyone.

Had my first laulau here and a kalua pork dish plus salad. Far from gourmet but full of flavour and wonderful service. Locals eat here and the place was packed! Always a good sign.

We drove extra there on a lonely planet advice.the location is poor,inside a shopping center(with so many restaurants in Hilo town!!).we ordered Kalua pig and a ahi burger.the pork was old and reheated,the burger was without any taste,the saddest burger I've ever seen.i ordered a salad choosing the French dressing:it was ketchup.never again,avoid this place .in Hawaii the quality of food is excellent.that was the exception.

We shared the Laulau Plate. Plenty of food for two. The grilled pork and stuffed Taro leave were to die for. I wish we could have gone back for more.
