Large servings - we had lots of leftover. Seven course meal consisted of garlic chicken, kalua pig, assorted tempura, assorted sushi, potato salad, chinese chicken green salad,... More

I've see a lot of social media post describing the food at this take out eatery, so decided to try it when I was in town. Upon my arrival, I found parking to be a little challenging. There are limited stalls and several people were sitting, or hanging around, eating their food outside. I parked closer to a nearby bank,... More

We always order their known Garlic Chicken. They are always busy, lots of parking, fast service. Time of operation is 5a - 1pm closed on Sundays.

Before you go to this place...understand that it is take out only. There no tables anywhere and it is in a pretty sketchy part of town...so don't even consider the curb for dining unless you are one of the homeless hanging out. Food is good...not great and not worth going back for to us. We had some sort of garlic... More

When visiting Hawaii, this okazu-ya is a must stop for locals. Best known for it's garlic chicken (a must have), the restaurant offers a diverse array of foods to satisfy any appetite. If you're a visitor to Oahu and looking for a local favorite, look no further than Mitsu-ken.

Mitsuken is one of the last okazuya left in Oahu and one of most popopular places to eat and it's also very reasonable priced. It's only open for breakfast and lunch 5am-2pm. Known for their garlic chicken and great bentos I also like their spam musubi. I really love their cheap breakfast specials fried rice with 2 eggs, bacon, sausage... More

Everyone needs to try their garlic chicken at least once in their lives! Their breakfast special is cheap (garlic chicken with fried rice) but the portion is huge so I always try to share with someone. It's always busy in the mornings so anticipate a line.

Really great bentos, breakfast and great ala carte menu to choose from. You got different variety of musubi's, garlic chicken, fried saimen, shrimp and veg tempura and the prices are really reasonable. Not very many places like this left in hawaii.

So a work friend brought some of their garlic chicken to work a while back and let me taste it. Ever since that magical moment I have been trying to find their restaurant to get some more. There are multiple addresses for it out there and even when I map directions with the addresses provided it never takes you to... More
