I grew up on Libby's. It was one of the first "must-dos" that I introduced my family to when we arrived into Honolulu! The steamed buns (the actual bread part) is stand alone better than any store bought Hawaiian bread, and the delicious bbq pork has had the same deliciousness consistently for years and years! Love to see that pink... More

We have been coming here for many many years. Love it every time. We feel it's the best manapua in Honolulu, but unfortunately this time the buns were hard. It happens! But we will be back again and again

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
