We had heard about Mark's Place, but despite many visits to Kauai had never been there to eat. My wife and I had spent the morning walking the beach in Kekaha on the west side of the island. Our return drive took us nearby, and it worked out to stop and have a late lunch at Mark's Place. There were... More

Their teri beef is off the charts! Highly recommended for any plate lunch but the teri beef is the best in town.

Daughter researched and wanted to eat here. This place is located in Puhi in a industrial area. Lunch crowd flock to purchase lunch here. We ordered the Mark's special, it was good.

Wanted to try this place a couple of years ago based on the TripAdvisor recommendations, but the lines at lunchtime were very long so we opted to eat elsewhere. They are located in an industrial complex. This time we arrived at 11 am and were promptly served. We had a combo plate of Korean chicken and Teriyaki Chicken. The portions... More

This place was recommended by one of our tour guides from the Kipu Ranch. I had the grilled Ahi salad, and it hit the spot. My one regret: not trying Butter Mochi.

It was hard to believe that this was a restaurant from the outside but food was very good and local. They were slightly busy and I am sure they get tired of travelers coming in and wanting to know what different items are but it was hard to figure out what would be best. Preparation is quick and there are... More

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.
