Probably about what you would expect. Fast food with a bit of Hawaiian flair - Your typical plate lunch. I preferred the shrimp from the roadside trucks.

The garlic Mahi and chicken Katsu are amazing, don't forget shave ice for dessert! You can substitute fries for rice, and they are the thick and crinkly kind, order side of gravy for dipping!

Totally disgusting, unedible, dirty etc. I get that this is fast food and made with low quality meats but we had combo plates and the food was completely fried, the rice over cooked and the sauces were bland. Plus a woman came in and was talking on her phone and started screaming at someone on the phone and then she... More

Fast but hot and fresh. Hawaiian treats and burgers too! It is a fun, quick way to grab a bite. ALthough they are all over the island this is one of the best. The shrimp were a bit small but the Musubi was wonderful!

Enjoyed by the locals, always a good indicator of a good restaurant. Good kahlua pork, big portions.

This was my 2nd visit, and I had the mixed seafood plate with short ribs for lunch. Portions were huge. The fish was very good, but the short ribs were just OK.

A nice place for a quick plate lunch. I had the pork and cabbage it was quite good. Not the best place in the world but for a quick filling lunch I'd go back.

Food is generally tasteless and greasy. Typical hawaiian food. We did not like it and tried more than one before realizing this was a chain and regardless the food was not good.

The service was nothing to write home about but met the need. This place is a total hole in the wall with great food. The garlic shrimp and it was to die for. If you want some good food with no hassle and fast, i recommend L&L and their garlic shrimp.

Very good for what it is. Kalua pork is my favorite. My husband likes the chicken katsu. We've ordered their big pans of food, as well as single servings. It's always well-prepared.
