We went to Kilauea with little kids--and needed "meal" food on the way back. We had two other places in mind...but neither worked out. We needed to stop for gas for one car and on my daughter's phone we found Hana Hou. I need to...More

Down to the decorations and seating, its very "aunties house" kind of setting nothing fancy just homey. The food is homey as well, real local style cooking. Its like soul food for the locals. One thing that is always a must is the BANANA CREAM...More
