This is a very good lunch up for those who love Chinese food. Well it's not really Chinese but it's kind of greasy. That being said it tastes really good. Lot of items are from 70 cents $1 to dollar fifty. so you choose your box and you choose the items that you like normally a lunch for two people depending on how much you eat is about twenty bucks. usually what are you buy a box with $20 worth of stuff inside we have a meal and then one more meal later for 2 people. I recommend going early in the morning that's when they have the biggest selection
Always the good grinds... If you go before they sell out! And believe me... They sell out.. the tempura style Ono (wahoo) is my hands down favorite. A close second is the mustard cabbage maki roll... When it is available.
The person who served me had a bad attitude. I don't know what or why, but this was a second time that I've been there and the last time I was there she gave me the same attitude. I know I was not disrespectful, and I always treat others the way I would want others to treat me. This bothered me, because my wife was there to see it and she asked me what happened. I should have had a talk with the manager, but my wife asked me not to. I was going to ask the person with the attitude, but she just placed my receipt and my 💳 on top of the counter top and walked away without saying anything.
Great place for Okazu style...
An absolutely wonderful place for Okazuya style food. They have an awesome selection to please everyone in the family, group or party!I have been coming here over 30 years and have always been pleased by the quality of their food! Whether Catering for a Party, or grabbing a meal to share at the Park or Beach, the Hilo Lunch Shop is an incredible Choice!
Limitless choices of the self-proclaimed filled bentos, made right before your eyes! Mouth-watering seafood, like shrimp and fish or baked chicken or even then, fried maybe even nori-wrapped sumptuously offered with the okazutyo of fresh island vegetables or American prepared macaroni salad. Delicious! Try it, it is great!
4star food, but because get one ungrateful grumpy lady who no even say thank you with generous tip and talk sassy, today only gets 1 star for rudeness that I witnessed. I’ll still go back, but will pass her on to another person standing in line. Just retire already if you not happy with your job.
The food is excellent. There is always a line but it moves fast. You need to go early otherwise they might be out of your favorites. I love this place. I could eat here every day!
Pretty good service
Fast and friendly and good food 👌
Good plate lunch
First - cash onlySecond - we spent $30 for 4 person's meal. You can't get that in Hawaii! Third - food was great too! I really liked the tempura sweet potatoes
The place the locals go. And now me! This place is so yummy. Try it all. It's great.
they make good grinds perfect
Always a long line, but always worth the wait! The cone sushi & tuna tofu patties are too die for! So yummy!
Love their food, everything ono!
Just went there and not one person working there would acknowledge I was in line or serve me. Sad
This place serves really good local food but the lines can be long during meal times and it is only a take out place so be aware.

Love the food and service
A very small local Japanese restaurant. Love their food! Very traditional old school Japanese food! Price is unbeatable! Very very cheap, nothing is more than $3 on the menu. Most of the food is $1-2! Love their fish cake, fried fish and fried chicken! A lot of local people come here to buy food, not a lot of tourists. Although food is a bit salty, you can order more rice that will balance out. Highly recommend!
Great food, great value. Local Hawaiian cuisine. Enjoy a plate of food for under or 5 bucks !!
Best local kine, nori bhix, vegetable tempura, nori rice, hash patties, fish, all kinds ono grinds
Food is always good. It's to go only which is great for the park is across the street. If you want local food this is where you go! It's not fancy but the food is great.
They great local comfort foods that I grew up with. Even when it's pack with customers the staff keeps everybody moving without feeling rushed. Get there early before they run out. Try the chicken papaya to their fry chicken can't go wrong.
Enjoyed their delicious kaukau & kind servers everyday last week while working in Hilo last week. A must visit while in Hilo, Hawaii.
Friendly staff, Ono local food, great for take out!
Good food and good prices. Nice that they open early!!
This is one of those places you just gotta go to soothe that craving for "finger foods!" Works all the time.
Friendly staff plenty of Aloha!!...great food... decent prices perfect for picnics or if you headed to work awesome for your lunch!!! Sometimes it does get busy and there is a long line but heyyy... if it wasnt busy then the food wouldnt be good right? Worth the wait!!
Always busy but quick.
Lots of variety and excellent chicken nori!
It's Da Bomb
This is not an eat-in restaurant. It is a great place to grab some local food for lunch, gathering of the clan, or office party. You will probably order too much, because it all looks and smells delicious
Go early. Line gets long quick. Locals love it, lots of variety of local and Asian foods.
They serve Japanese food and American food and Hawaiian food there food is so ono and delicious great customer service and friendly faces
Amazing local style bento food.. get there early lines are usually long love the nori chicken!
Friendly and fast working staff, food is always delicious and never changes.
Love this place. Prices are very good for my. Pocket.
always crazy but always good food
