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.

Excellent. Tuna rice bowl is fresh and yummy. Spicy cod rod rice ball is tasty. Lot of local people go there.

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.

Musubi can be found at many locations around Waikiki, but this is one is the best. These guys do it right. Stopped for breakfast time musubi to take on my way for a hike up Diamond Head early in the morning and it was delicious....More
