If you are on Kauai, you gotta go to Hamura's at least once. They are the best of the best for local saimin. Fast,very reasonable & good! Their Special saimin is loaded with vegetables and meats. Try that with a BBQ stick or two. That's what you call broke the mouth and it's where the wallet no get broken. And, you can order noodles to go by the box if you want, so you can make your own Hamura's at home. Remember, No stick the gum under the counter...

Agreed, Hamura's is a must in case you didn't know, they have attracted quite a cosmopolitan clientele. The yakitori sticks are great. Anyone knows of other "local" style saimin? Coming from Palolo I miss Tanoue's and Kaimuki Saimin/Deli and Sekiya's is always a reliable standby as well as Boulevard on Dillingham. Mahalo paloloroadman1

heard this place was good so I went there and WHEW... talk about pathetic! if this is what Kauai people say is good... its zippys at best. far far cry from ramen. Barely cuts it as Saimin. the best place on kauai? the kitchen in the condo and make your own meals.

Last summer, I was blessed to be able to spend the summer on Kaua'i and Hamura's Saimin Stand was true to everything I grew to love about Hawaii. The people, both staff and customers at Hamura's (as well as across the island) were warm, friendly and a pleasure to share space with. My first ever bowl of saimin was was heaven sent, and served with a giggle (possibly because of my lack of knowledge of local vernacular and customs). Needless to say, with me, Hamura's as well as the people of Kaua'i, get a 5 star rating from me and I cant wait to return.

Ahfat, while I may agree with your comments for Kintaro I must disagree with Hamura. No offense to Zippys but Hamura is "time stood still". I lived on Kauai 17 years ago and recently went back to visit. Except for the paint job it hasn't changed much with time. The saimin is homemaid, not processed and its the soup that makes it complete. I'm sorry that you could not appreciate Hamura's, I sure the saimin you made in your condo was just as great, Ahfart.

The saimin is okay but the place is a dump. Watching the old ladies wash dishes (rinse is more accurate) is not appetizing. Good for talking stories with locals.

The noodles are so good, I bring them back to Oahu for family and friends. And don't forget the Lilikoi Chiffon Pie...it is so light and delicious, I bring that back, too! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! LOL!

The "mile high" lillikoi chiffon pie is to die for, talk about broke da mouth! As for the saimin, I personally thought it was quite good, the noodles and veggies were nice and fresh, cooked just right and the broth had a wonderful flavor. If I remember correctly, they even had a vegetarian option. Most of the folks eating there appeared to be local so that is usually an indication that a place's food is good and prices are reasonable :-)Whenever someone tells me they are going to Kauai, I always recommend a stop at Hamuras.
