Unless you have a smart phone you aren't going to find this. It's in Puhi, 2 miles from Lihue. The restaurant caters to local people who had called in their orders, came in, talked story in pidgin, and left with much aloha. The place is in this industrial park with ZERO ambiance. I just knew this place would be numbah... More

This is great Hawaiian food. For under $10 you get heaping portions. I love that they have brown rice available. The teriyaki beef and chicken were my favorites. Expect some unchewable gristle on your beef at this price. I purposely went after the lunch rush in order to be able to peruse the menu and not irritate locals. My husband... More

I have been looking for a great lunch location on a budget and found Mark's Place. Though not easy to find, it is a bargain with great plate lunch variety with more than enough to eat for $10 or less. Deserts are extra, but again worth the price. Mark's is in an industrial park near the Community College on the... More

Lots of delicious choices. Chicken cutlet was crisp and yummy! Mini plate was still filling and satisfying. A hidden gem in the industrial area! Don't miss this stop!

We got here at 11:30 before the lunch rush, my husband had the teriyaki chicken and I had the teriyaki beef plate lunch. Both were very good, I had so much food I had it for lunch the next day! I would highly recommend this place for a great plate lunch!

My wife and I had lunch at Mark's Place on Tuesday 5 May. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I ordered the daily special pork carnitas with Matt’s mojo sauce, served on Shannon’s house made torta bread ($9.50). The sandwich included lettuce, green tomato slices with some type of breaded and fried vegetable. It was accompanied by taro chips. I... More

We've enjoyed plate lunches at several spots on the islands over the years, but Mark's is a true gem. Get the special of the day and make sure you grab a piece of pie. The location is a little hard to find - in a business park - but the search is well worth it. Kick back on a picnic... More

I had the chicken katsu, and it was delicious! We also got the chicken teriyaki for my son, and he loved it as well.

We stopped by this hole in the wall place for a take out lunch and was very happy with it. It is easily found with a gps but not right off the main road. Serving size was huge and well worth every penny you spend.

You have to try it. Do not let the industrial park fool you. After all some of the best eats are where all the hard working, blue collar folks are. You get your money's worth here. Very good lunch plate. Very good food. Variety of options. Bakery is also delicious. Must go for lunch there when you're on island! Good... More
