The best pork hash! A Must Stop whenever we come home to the islands! Same ppl working there since I can remember! This is one place that the food has never changed since I was child! Its Always a Must for us to get some manapua & pork hash to bring back to Seattle.

The hours here are a bit odd (5:30am to 2pm) so consider this when planning to stop by. We came here for a quick breakfast one morning and it was really good. The manapua (pork buns) were the size of softballs and really yummy – quite doughy and flavourful. The service was quick and the prices were very reasonable, which... More

Very local stop in China town for seamed buns and my favorite mai tai su. A backed bun on the sweet side.

My first time coming here, I thought I was in the wrong place. It seemed like an open kitchen, not a place to buy food from, since there is no display and the menu is very high up on the wall on the far side of the place. But once I was helped by the friendly owners, I felt very... More

As a Chinese person, I had to check out what was so unique about Hawaiian-style manapuas (char siu bao.) To start, they're HUGE. Secondly, the pork was pulled and soft, and sweet. Be prepared for lines - I thought this was a tourist attraction, but it's clearly frequented by tourists and locals alike. Don't be scared off by the lines... More

went to have a nice early breakfast to found a sign saying closed until further notice. I drove to this location to try the nice budget price but really disappointed to see the notice. The décor is really old at the front of the shop.

The Mau Family have kept this no frills great take out place for decades. Come early in the morning and load up for the beach. Manapua is like a chat sui bao but super sized. The pork is shredded and consistent in texture. Pork hash are like steamed Sui mae dumplings but the size of a baby's fist. It is... More

This is the best placed in town to get a Char Sui Bao with a lot of meat. All their other items are awesome too, but these stand out. I would make a special trip in town just to have this for lunch.

Char Hung Sut has been around for decades. I remember when the lines were out the door and a short line was when the line was at the door. Decades forward and there are many, many dim sum restaurants, however Char Hung Sut's dim sum's quality and taste is still unique and top notch. They produce their dim sum Hawaii... More
