It's been a few months since I was home in Hawaii, and after a few searches I stumbled into this establishment. Got Loco Moco with fried rice and Chicken Katsu.. absolutely amazing. Felt like the real deal, and brought back memories of being on the island. The variety of Hawaiian Sun drinks is a huge plus. 10/10 would recommend.

It is so popular that they run out of food. It is a counter service restaurant. My favorite is the marinated chicken thighs--great flavor and very generous portion. They also sell saimin.

Seattle is fortunate to have so many great Hawaiian restaurants and this is one of my favorites.

My friend had never had Hawaiian food before and we were in the area so we stopped by. She had a noodle soup that she was happy with and I decided to get three sides. The pork and cabbage, kimchi, and tuna macaroni salad. It was delicious.

If you've ever been to Hawaii and miss the cuisine here is your spot. Really good, incredibly tasty food everything we've had there has been super, chicken and beef combo plate, noodles, all really good. And killer fried rice omelette. I don't know what they do with their macaroni salad but it is wonderful!

I'm sure they have good local food, but when I went today (Saturday) they weren't even open!! I'm sure IF they we're open the would have been decent; I love local Hawaiian food
