We stopped in the mall to pick up groceries and decided to grab a quick bite. Spot seemed popular with the locals. I had the spicy eggplant and chicken stir fry with fried rice, noodles and a pasta salad. Very reasonable prices, large portions and...More

Amazing variety of japanese, chinese, filipino and hawaiian food choices. Lots of good food at a low price. One of the most popular lunch places in town. Their sticky rice is always prefectly cooked and forms the basis of all their dishes. Their Bento's are...More

Looking for a cheap fast food place for a plate of local food, found Hiro's next to KTA Grocery. Outside seating. Quick, quick, quick.

I go to Hiro's at least twice a week. The Food is Da Bomb, the cost won't make you go broke but the attitude of the girls are awful. They don't smile, don't thank you and have no appreciation of you coming to their place...More

I'm not sure how my wife and I heard about this place, but we did, and gave it a try. We went there for a quick breakfast on the way out to Volcanoes NP. Not much to look at, but definitely a crowd. Seating is...More

This place had yummy spam musubi, sweet potato tempura & nori fried chicken. Very inexpensive & convenient. This is not health food. Places like Hiro's are known for deep fried & high carb foods.

This is a hole in the wall of a shopping center but Guy (from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) would love it! Food was delicious and huge portions and very inexpensive. You either get it to go or eat on the picnic tables on the sidewalk....More

We found Hiro's Place on Yelp and will definitely be back! It's cafeteria style and only seating is outdoors but there are a lot of choices and two of us ate like kings for $17! Fried rice is excellent and the pork cabbage was yummy....More

Maybe ordering tempura fish from a cafeteria style restaurant is a bad idea, especially when I realized it wasn't really under a heat lamp, but it was terribly cold and greasy. Still, other options looked VERY GOOD and HOT and there are always locals eating...More
