Good size meal for the money and would be a bit more of a Hawaiian feel if they actually played Hawaiian music.....felt their sauces were too thin and runny. Need to make them thicker.....

We love Hawaiian Time! The food is so good. The staff is great and they are very quick. It's so nice to get real food, quickly and at a fair price. Gluten free notes: They make a lot of there own sauces here so many of the item are gluten free. You have to skip the Mac salad but if... More

Really like this place. A chance to get some Hawaiian taste that is reasonable. Both the pulled pork & teriyaki chicken are my favorites.

I've been here many times and never been disappointed. I love the mac salad and the teriyaki chicken. I also like that you get a decent size portion for the price. Will definitely be back again

The food is great -- no frills -- just regular plate lunches very much akin to what you would find in the islands. Step up to the counter -- order -- get your drink -- they bring the food -- and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

They do a great job with the meat, rice and macaroni salad. Just like you would find in Hawaii. The portions are generous and it's always consistent. Just stopped in after being gone from salem for 3 years and the food was still great.

Perfect place if you are tired of the usual fast food choices. Their pork is really good. I like the option of getting a combo plate with 2 meats or that you can get a smaller portion or get lettuce instead of rice. Many substitutions available.

I love this place so much, that I am planning to have it catered at my wedding. The chicken is amazing! I never have liked macaroni salad but I absolutely love theirs! They provide extra sauce if you need it, and I usually pour it all over! The teriyaki sauce is my favorite! I want them to make one on... More

A great find in Salem. Their plate lunches compare favorably to those we've had in Maui. The huli chicken and pulled pork were both excellent. Sides were good, too. Minimal service but that's fine. Bottomless fountain drinks for $1.50 - what a deal! More than one location in the area.
