This is a tiny. basic place in a nondescript shopping centre in Kaneohe, a decent if uninteresting town. However, it has some of the best food we had in Hawaii, at least for the price. Portions are sizeable, prices low. The chicken items fried chicekn...More

The chicken was good, my husband loves the furikake chicken. Its a small family owned business and is popular to the locals. If you want an authentic hawaiian food, this is the place to be.

This small, family owned business has always served good food, good laughs, and good prices. My family and I have been eating here since they opened. They always have the typical plate lunch fare, and a huge list of specials, but the family favorites are...More

The best homemade fried chicken. Crispy skin and huge portions. Try their other dishes as well. It may be a hole in the wall mom and pops hangout, but it's a local favorite on the windward side

Do they sell chicken in larger quantities? I saw the foil pan and wondered how many pieces and how much?
