Great place to pick up good local food. Portions are just right and taste great. Better than some restaurants. Cooked to order on the spot.

This is a great place to stop and grab a plate for breakfast or lunch. Great prices $5 breakfast plates and $9 lunch plates. The service is very fast and efficient. Small outdoor eating space and even smaller indoor eating space, but the food is well worth it. Great food, great service, great prices, you cannot go wrong at Sumo... More

I had breakfast here 3 times while in town. Big portions at a really reasonable price. Nothing spectacular, but there are tons of con- diments available to "make it your own." Every time I was there it was nothing but locals, and to me that's a good sign. There was only one girl working the counter, and she was a... More

Located in the Lanihau Shopping Center in Kailua Kona. A local takeout. Bentos and Korean based plate lunches. Need to a Sack and Save Grocery store. Prices are on par with other similar local takeouts. Limited seating inside. May want to brave the outdoors with several concrete tables in front of the store. If you don't want to buy their...

I got shrimp fried rice, it was not good. There were these greasy pieces of pork fat (I think) that were not very hot, so think cold bacon fat and you'll get the picture. Everything seemed to be fried or otherwise greasy. Not that I'm averse to fatty foods, but in that kind of mood I will go to one... More

Best local breakfast, and at a good price. If I'm in Kona early I stop here for breakfast. Two scoops of fried rice, corn beef hash, and eggs over easy for $4 bucks. Load that with shoyu, and siracha, and you got yourself a meal. Great bentos for lunch as well

The cost for the raimen w/Gyoza &frued rice was very reasonable at under $9. The gyyoza was good, fried rice was average and the soup was missing something but not too bad. All portions were above average. The other item we ate was the mushroom sirloin steak was tender taste was also average with good portions

Always stop here when I'm in a hurry. It's everything I want from a plate lunch shop. The ramen, musubis, and bowls are my favorites. I've had the occasional unimpressive plate, but never a bad experience.

Great plate lunches. We decided to stopped by for some lunches one day. We were surprised by the number of dishes on the menu. They all looked good. The food came out pretty quick and both of our lunches were very tasty. Prices were affordable. Will definitely go back and try other dishes.
