The top-ranked Hawaii restaurants are:

10. Marukame Udon, Honolulu, HI

14. Ono Seafood, Honolulu, HI

15. Da Poke Shack, Kailua-Kona, HI

35. Mama’s Fish House Restaurant, Paia, HI

92. Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop, Lahaina, HI

“Businesses from across the country were compared using a ranking that looks at both the ratings and the number of reviews while accounting for quality, popularity, and statistical fluctuations,” Yelp explains. “To localize the list, only reviews written by users whose profiles list their home location as within the reviewed businesses’ country were factored into the ranking.”
