Cute little place off the beaten path. Wouldnt have ever seen it if a new friend hadn't taken us there. The staff was very friendly and the food was Delicious.It's small and gets busy fast so hurry on down and get your seat. (they also offer takeout) I had the "special" and enjoyed every bit of it. To be honest...had no clue what was in it until I looked it up later but ate every bite. This is a place I'll definitely go back to and try the other recommended items (Strawberry soda)

food is awesome if you're into the noodle soups. only reason I didn't give this a five is because the interior is a little run down. Definitely a locals secret!

Stop in at Hamura at noon, and wait for a spot at a counter. It is a popular and crowded place. Share a "Special" with someone. It will fill you both up, and if not, order a side of broth and some chicken sticks. Watch the woman in the kitchen doing the heat-proof hula while she juggles dozens of orders and makes everything fresh for you.

AS HAS BEEN TOLD, SERVICE AND ATMOSPHERE ARE NOT LIKE WHAT YOU WOULD FIND IN A TOURISTY PLACE, NEITHER ARE THE PRICES, BUT THIS IS NOT A TOURISTY PLACE. IT IS WHERE LOCALS GO TO EAT WHICH TELLS ME IT'S SOMETHING GOOD! WE WENT TO A TOURISTY RESTAURANT, AND I LOVED THE SAIMIN SO MUCH AT HAMURAS I WANTED MORE, BUT THEY WANTED 20 BUCKS FOR A BOWL OF SOUP! HAMURAS SPECIAL WAS ABOUT 5 BUCKS WHEN WE WENT, AND IT WAS SO AWESOME, THEY WERE THE ONLY PLACE WE ATE AT 2X ON OUR WEEK THERE. IF YOU DON'T STOP HERE, YOU ARE MISSING A PART OF THE ISLAND.

Having lived on noodles for so long, Saimin is nothing special to talk about. (I even wonder that I can open a noodle house if this one is successful.) So my review is very subjective and personal. Still I am glad to have an experience of having a popular local dish. I won't miss it but I won't have regrets for not trying it out.

Pretty good saimin. Wontons are really simple and garlicky. Really good chicken sticks. Beef sticks a little tough.

Saimin was great, but avoid the fried noodles. They weren't bad, but the saimin was so much better. Cash only here, so bring cash.
