A little about Palani's

Hawai'i Noodles and why we are taking this path... Aloha!

Our story begins with Franco, “Palani” who was born on the island of Kauai and raised on Oahu in Kalihi Valley. Along with his wife, Barbara, and two sons, Gabriel Kalani and Ryan Makoa, we welcome you to Palani’s Hawai’i Noodles House of Saimin!

Franco grew up eating Saimin from “small time.” Like many folks that grew up in Hawai’i, he ate Saimin, Spam, and BBQ sticks long before even seeing his first box of oatmeal or cereal. The savory aromas of Spam and cabbage, pansit, pork adobo and Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice would welcome him at lunch and dinners. Saimin has brought back so many fond memories of home. His mom and dad would load up the kids in their two-toned station wagon and head down to Kalihi Valley to a local Saimin Shop across the street from his alumni, Farrington High School. You could smell the saimin broth and teriyaki BBQ sticks from the parking lot long before getting into the restaurant! He fondly recalls going “holo holo” around Waikiki to check out the tourist night life before returning home and playing music with friends and family.

We Look Forward To Seeing You Again

“I was lucky enough to be part of Palani’s Hawai’i Noodles taste test group. I participated three separate times and the deliciousness and freshness was consistent. I could have the broth alone it’s so good. The fish that looks like radish is my favorite. And dessert shave ice with your own spike, say what!!!!!
Krates please, please hurry and open so I can enjoy Palani’s every Wednesday when I am on this side of town.”

I highly recommend this restaurant for a taste of Hawai’i. It is amazing. On top of having great food, the owners and service they provide is very warm and they treat you like their own family. Please go check out this restaurant. You won’t regret it and you’ll definitely go back. :)”

Delicious! The noodles are a firmer texture than regular ramen, and the broth is seafood based. It’s very filling! I’ll definitely be back! Oh, and shave ice! It’s the perfect summer treat!
