Words cannot express how good their spam musubi is. I’ve been eating musubi since I was a kid. I have since moved to the mainland and have missed some of my local favorites. Their spam and plum musubi is perfectly fresh, warm and melts in...More

The food was good and the price was great, but in the end you're still just getting musubi and rice balls. They are good, but I think I went in with an above average expectation.

Wasnt expecting much but needed a light breakfast before a scuba dive. Wowww the eel musubi was on point! Sweetness of the eel, saltiness of the spam and light flavor of the rice and egg made it a perfect combo.

Don't go to a Musubi place if you are looking for salad. This place is perfect comfort food or if you want a fast meal.

THE BEST! So good. Don't get your spam (or any other) musubi anywhere else! Always busy and always a treat! I was in Honolulu for a week and grabbed musubi here about 8 times.

I have to wonder if the other reviewers have been attending the same place. We got a selection to take away and eat on the beach. Everything disappointed. Majorly. Perhaps we are spoilt in New Zealand with sushi and bento that has lovely fresh produce...More
