About Us

Diem 99 Cafe has been serving great tasting Vietnamese and local-style dishes in the same location since 1999.  We are located at 1151 Mapunapuna Street, inside the former 99 Ranch Market building in Mapunapuna.  Our hours are from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday through Friday and 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Saturday and Sunday.

Meet the Owner

Huynh Le is the owner of Diem 99 Cafe and is also the creator of all the tasty dishes that are served here. 

Huynh came to America from Vietnam in April 1975 during a turbulent period and has been in Hawaii for over 30 years now.  She has grown accustomed to the local lifestyle and tastes but has never forgotten her Vietnamese heritage. She reflects this in her local-style menu selections that are served alongside a selection of traditional Vietnamese dishes. 

Her "accidental" career in the restaurant business began back in 1988 when she was helping her sister start her own restaurant business in Moiliili. Within a few months, her sister gave up and Huynh took over the business not wanting to waste all that already had been put into it. She has never looked back since then.

She is very hard-working and loves interacting with her customers.  She enjoys playing with her grand-children and singing karaoke.  (She is also a pretty good dancer too!) 

 

(In case you're wondering how the name "Diem" came about...that is her daughter's nickname.)
