Great chicken lunch with the locals

This place is a trip, it's in a bowling alley but don't let that fool you. The food is out of this world, and unlike anything on the mainland. The deserts especially the carrot cake are to die for. Do yourself a favor and never mind the lines or wait at lunch - go there and try it!

I can't believe how few people seem to know about this place or have been and didn't rate it. Then I read some reviews about ordering pizza and that explained everything… My wife and i both ordered mixed plates, which were huge. We both chose the tasty chicken which was one of the best things I ate during 10 nights... More

My husband and I came to The Alley after seeing this restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins and dives. The oxtail soup was so amazing and the turkey sandwich was a 10/10 as well. The menu is so extensive and the desserts you see on your way in look delicious. You just can't go wrong here!

I guess given what I've heard and read, my expectations were very high. We ordered a pizza, oxtail soup, and calamari. The calamari was a bit overdone, the pizza was just ok but the oxtail soup was pretty good. After 2 beers our bill came to almost $70. To me that's a bit much. I like my kalbi with the... More

I always have a great meal at The Alley. Good service and outstanding food in Aiea. I always bring in friends visiting from the main land and they love the food as well.

Very popular and busy at lunch. Most people were there for the tasty chicken. When I complained to my waitress (Patricia) that my chicken was all fat and breading she quickly brought me another whole serving of chicken. Wow. That's service. Short wait for a table. Not much atmosphere.

I eat here a couple of times per month. I love the furikake ahi, tasty chicken, and pulehu steak. But the best thing, especially when it gets cold in the winter (well, relatively cold) is the oxtail soup. I always ask for extra ponzu sauce for the oxtails. Yummy. They don't always have it, but if they do, you have... More

The food at this bowling alley restaurant is a gourmet take on local fare, and they have awesome deserts. The service at lunch is fast. Ive been here a few times with colleagues. My favorites are their version of a traditional plate lunch. The tasty chicken is sweet rich and savory. It goes great with mac salad! There is also... More

Although it may seem odd to pick up cakes and pies from a bowling alley, the desserts there are extremely delicious. Many (perhaps most?) people go to Aiea Bowling alley for the food rather than the bowling!
