We stopped here on the advice of a local. Great decision. We wanted a quick bite before we headed for our overnight flight. Prices were cheap and food was good. We had the special bowl. Loaded with tasty goodness. Also got the lilikoi cream pie!...More

Once you eat Hamura's saimin, you cannot eat others! Their soup was so so so good!!! And don't forget to have Lilikoi (passion fruit) haupia pie! It's so light and delicious :) Mmmm I still can taste it!!! So goo!

Inexpensive and filling. Ramen and Skewers. Mains $7-$10. Cash only. Close to airport. Sit around a winding table and enjoy delicious ramen and skewers. Malasadas on Wednesdays. Do t leave without trying the Lilikoi (passion fruit) chiffon pie.

I heard from a couple of reliable sources that this place makes the greatest saimin noodle soup on the island. So, we went to check it out. It is on Kress Street—a rather non-descript lane— in Lihue and the store front seemed rather old and...More

Hamura has been in Lihue since the 1950's and it hasn't changed. Very good Saimin,, Bar B Q, shrimp and excellent lilikoi pie. This is not a fancy place. You sit at the counter with all the others enjoying an old fashion bowl of Saimin....More

A friend turned us on to this place on a previous trip to Kauai and it's now a regular stop when we return. The food is food and the setting simple and fun - more of a family-style dining with communal tables. We always enjoy...More
