Once again, we are in Kauai and had to stop here for Saimin. On our way to Ke'e Beach from Poipu and even if it was a bit early for saimin, my kids requested to come here for a good saimin. They open at 10am...More

The Hamura Saimin Stand was our first stop upon arriving on Kauai last summer. We found it listed as a gem in a popular guide book, and we were not disappointed. The whole crew of us piled in on stools around the counter and very...More

We always love returning to Hamura's Saimin Stand. Great place for an affordable bowl of saimin. No frills. Hasn't changed in years, & we love it!

This is an out of the way family style saimen (noodle) shop. The won-ton saimen was so tasty after a full day outdoors. But the lilikoi chiffon pie was amazing. It is a must-have on a visit to Kauai.

Best saimin and chicken sticks and fried noodles and lilikoi chiffon pie. Prices not bad. Service is bad and workers look unhappy, but it don't matter to me. Locals best place to go for saimin.

Reasonably priced, great tasting Saimin. Looks like a local, family owned business. Fried wontons are really good, and they have cheap shave ice if you are there when they happen to be making it.

We stopped in for a late lunch because they're always so busy and were pleased to find that they were relatively empty. I had the saimin/wonton combo and it was excellent. Be sure to try the lillikoi pie if they have any left!
