One of my favorite places on island.

I get strange looks when I recommend this place. Yes, this restaurant is located in Aiea Bowl. No, you won't be disappointed. I lived in Aiea for years, and frequented this place before I moved back to the mainland. Whenever I come back to visit, it is one of my favorite stops. Forget Waikiki... read more

My mother would make oxtail soup occasionally when I was growing up, so when Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives noted that the Alley Restaurant served the best oxtail soup, my wife and I decided we just had to stop by during our last visit. The restaurant is on the top level of the Aiea Shopping Center, but it was so busy... More

It seems a little strange to go to a bowling alley to eat rather than to bowl, but the food at the Alley Restaurant is outstanding. I would highly recommend the Tasty Chicken, which is their signature dish. It is indeed very tasty and crispy. The flavors remind me of Korean fried chicken and garlic chicken. You can order the...

This place is located inside a bowling alley. The food is very good, including the desserts. It's probably a bit overpriced for what it is (maybe part of that is the "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" fame, or just good old fashioned Hawaiian high prices), but it's worth going to. It's about a mile from Perl Harbor, so it's a good... More

The Tasty Chicken plate seems a little overpriced at $12. It's good but not that good. After eating a few pieces, the amount of grease in the batter/fried skin started to get to me. I've also been here several times to buy desserts and the staff at the register are often very stone-faced and makes you feel very unwelcomed. Business... More

I have a tendency to seek out travel channel and food channel restaurants. The Alley restaurant was conveniently on our way to the airport and had good reviews. I had no idea how good this food really was and was mad at myself for waiting till the last day/ last hour to try it. Luckily we got there before the... More

Located in the Aiea Bowling Alley is the somewhat famous Aiea restaurant. My fetching wife and I met a good friend there who was somewhat skeptical about my selection on dinner.."I've never had a good meal in a bowling alley, he said." Well, was he wrong! He was sitting there having a beer when we walked into the restaurant with... More
