Little Japanese restaurant in a strip mall, nothing catchy to the eye but the food is good and service is really friendly. If you can't decide, there's always the bento box that offers a little bit of everything. Like the Hawaiian touch to the food selection.

Went to He’e and found unpretentious food that tasted good for a great price. There are a couple of differences in some of the sauces (the oyakodon has a little sweetness, as does the miso, but still good).

The chicken yakisoba hit the spot.

Sorry ate the food to quickly to take a good picture :-).

He'e had decent reviews and we both felt like having decent Japanese/local fare. Having been diving all day, we were both really hungry and He'e did not disappoint. Spicy ahi and asparagus tempura for appetizers. My wife then had the smoked pork plate (which came with lots of veggies) and I had the daily special which was a combo plate including Kalbi beef, tempura shrimp and tempura vegetables. Both dishes came with rice plus another side. Very tasty and good value for the money. Dinner including a pot of great Japanese tea and tip was about $55-$60. Ambiance is just average as they are in a strip mall next to a Jamba Juice but the food, value and service were fine.

this place still has great local food, and great portions at a very fair price. We tend to go for an egg dish, they are always cooked just as ordered.
