I often get a large portion of the ahi poke tuna and it lasts me for several meals. Their are many great side dishes too - comfort foods like macaroni salad, kalua wontons, lumpia. Just talking about it is making me hungry!

Decided to check out this new spot for island food. It was yummy! Its not a big place but I really liked the casual decor. There's a small bar and lots of craft beers available.

I have never been to Hawai, but food was great!! We got moco loco, japanese style chicken and other things I can't remember the names. Grilled chicken from the salad was the highlight thought. Great service as well.

Outstanding, authentic Hawaiian fare. There aren't too many Hawaiian restaurants where we live in the Southern US so we made a bee-line for Homestyle Hawaiian when we landed in San Diego. Easy to find, fantastic menu....worth the stop for sure.

There are maybe four or five tables inside, and two or three small tables on the sidewalk right out front. And the parking lot? A hot mess, which I can imagine only getting worse when the Burger Lounge next door opens. However, I will... More

I just tried the new 3445 Midway location. Had the Kalbi Plate Lunch. Mac was perfect, Rice was perfect. Kalbi was almost perfect. They are just getting started, so I'll cut them a little slack. The staff could not have been friendlier and the restaurant could not be cleaner. I'll be back!
