Mark has a unique menu that changes daily to offer something awesome, like local fish on a bed of local greens, stunning desserts, as well as the local favorites like beef stew, teriyaki chicken, etc. For the unique entrees, go early because they sell out fast. Popular with the locals as well as the tourists who ventured through Puhi to... More

You won't just drive by the place by accident. But do put in your device to get here. You might not be able to find a parking spot without having to look around. You won't be able to sit inside. If you are there when it is busy it is hectic. But the food is good. The staff was friendly.... More

My daughter wanted musubi before we left Kauai. The place we were planning on going hadn't opened yet, so I checked the reviews while we were waiting. The reviews were horrible, so we checked TripAdvisor to see where else we could find musubi. We went to this little, tiny place in the middle of nowhere. They are so small you... More

This place rocks... Had the mixed plate with Katsu, Teri beef, and stew... Man was it good! The place is tipi key in a small warehouse area (no view)... But the food is worth the trip.

We stopped in here for lunch. Food is served as take-out but there are tables shaded by umbrellas on the lawn outside. Excellent and plentiful food; we had leftovers for lunch the next day. GPS may be necessary for finding this place. It's in an industrial part of town near Costco. We found it based on Tripadvisor recommendation.

wonderful local joint, my title says it all, the korean chicken is ONO. the sesame seed crust is so good, we went here twice during our stay on beautiful Kauai. I also reccomend the teri chicken and hamburger steak. The special dessert was not great.

I eat there twice in my 1 week stay, I got the mixed plate both times. The plates are pretty heavy and food is good quality. I will be returning on my next visit to Lihue.

After a helicopter ride at Lihue Airport, my wife and I searched TripAdvisor for a local place to have lunch. We read the reviews and decided on Mark's Place. Without the reviews and a map we would not have passed by the location. There is nothing impressive about the location or the restaurant, so do not judge the quality of... More

We tried this place based on reviews and maybe I just don't like "authentic" Hawaiian food but it wasn't that great. I got the teriyaki beef and chicken katsu. My husband got the moco loco and the Korean chicken. He liked the Korean chicken. My katsu was fairly tasteless and their sauce was basically ketchup. Anyway, I may try another... More

Simple, delicious, regular people food. Get ready to stand in line. This place is busy at lunch. Located in a commercial area of the city. Picnic tables outside. When you are tired of fancy restaurants eat where the locals go.
