We lived at the top of Aiea Hts Drive for 4 years during Army years at Tripler AMC. Someone ripped us off to this place then (1987) and it became a staple in our lives for 4 years. We always were trying to get there invoke morning before the baked Manapua sold out. The steamed are great, but we preferred... More

Last visited this shop 2 years ago and back then the manapua were great. Now, they are so over-rated. The manapua fillings are so scant; too much bread to filling. Filling is bland and tasteless. Don't understand why there is a long line, so disappointed.

Great variety of baked and steamed manapua and other "Manapua Man" specials. Their chow mein is excellent. Order ahead for their mini manapua.

Little difficult to find, parking is limited, but worth the trip. Small shop, like an okazuya, just choose, pay and leave. Small table for four outside the shop. Manapua is very tasty, as is the pork hash & half moons. Chow fun is great too. Better to go early as they sell out some days.

A little hard to find as well as sparse parking but worth it for the food. First time there I picked four random items, all good. I'll try the other ones later.

The only thing that I didn't like was that the manapua needed to be warmed up. I picked up 30 manapua last week around 10am and my cheeseburger manapua that I so craved for the past year, was dry. The second one that I ate was way better because I microwaved it. I know that if you buy it fresh,... More

The HOT food is really good. Its a very traditional joint and has a lot of good food. However, I do note that the rims of the icee cups that they sell are not entirely clean. Other than that it is a really good choice.
