Cash only place offered the freshest manapua's around! They make them on site and everything is served warm. They are great if you need large quantities and need to bring them for a work function! They also have delicious dumplings (pork hash).

Love the char siu manapua and pork-hash. Reminds me of the treats we used to buy in Chinatown growing up. Place to stop before going to the neighbor islands to get their famous pink boxes which have become known state and nation-wide. Only bad comment is the amount of meat in the manapua is getting smaller, or the bread bun... More

They had my order of three dozen manapua ready at 9:30, as scheduled. There is nothing tastier at the beach than a fresh, warm manapua. A must on every Hawaii visit.

Steamed buns filled with shredded pork, chicken or sweetened beans. You need to try it at least once!

I was requested to bring manapuas back to the mainland when I left Honolulu, so off to Libby's Manapua! This year I took my sister with me and we had a blast. Prior to arrival, I looked at their website that has current prices and planned my order. We walked in at 7am to an empty shop, placed our orders:... More

If you are going to visit Libby's Manapua Shop, you come here for one thing and one thing only...The Steamed Charsiu Manapua. It's so soft,fluffy, and sure hits the spot. I also recommend you getting some Pork Hash to compliment your Manapua as well . If you are going back to the Mainland, you should buy a box of Manapua... More

We were anxious to try manapua during our vacation in Honolulu, and we were told that Char Hung Sut in Chinatown had the best in the city. Unfortunately, they are on vacation, and were closed. On the recommendation of a local, we tried Libby's and loved the products they serve. We tried pork and chicken manapua, pork hash, and rice... More

I remember coming here for Manapua when I was in high school 40 years ago and the place is still great. Everything is super fresh and one thing I would say is that for the regular manapua the pork filling is not as flavorful as some places, but still really great. The bun is slightly sweet and very soft and... More
