I saw this commercial for the Aiea Bowl and I jokingly asked my parents if that was where they bowled..and it was! It also showed food and my mom said people like the food there. I didn't check Yelp cause I was going to meet them on their league day. The first time, I went in and was seated in... More

OMG! Fine food, friendly efficient service in the loud ambiences of a bowling alley. Enjoyed their Pan-Seared Furikake Ahi dish and finished off my meal with their great lemon crunch cake. Had a interesting and fun dining experience

I only heard about this place two days ago so since I was leaving the airport today to go home westbound I decided to drop by and try their burgers as I am such a burger fanatic. People were sitting/standing out on the sidewalk when I arrived - pretty crowded. I was by myself at 1 in the afternoon so... More

My in-laws live a few blocks away but somehow I never tried this place until today though they say its been here for ages. Its very convenient to the Pearl Harbor historical sites, so after touring the Arizona Memorial we went for lunch. I could not believe how good it was- probably the best Kalbi I've ever had, including various... More

The food at the Alley is very good. The Oxtail soup is delicious! The food you get is not what you would expect at a bowling alley. The Asian Braised pork shoulder was very, very good but just a little too sweet for me. It is a bowling alley so it is loud inside and the restaurant is crowded so... More

My first visit to The Alley at Aiea Bowl specifically for the ox tail soup. I had heard good things about their ox tail soup, and I was not disappointed. Meat: plentiful, tender, almost fall off da' bone Soup: deep rich flavorful broth. Sauce: Something new to me, very tasty and tangy. Sesame oil/seed based with lime, sugar and some... More

Delicious quality food that you would never expect at a bowling alley. Maybe a Bistro. The Furikake Ahi is delicious along with the other entrees. Their cakes are delicious! The Strawberry Crunch Cake is most and delicious freshly baked with only the freshest ingredients Can't go wrong with a meal at The Alley Restaurant

I read the reviews and heard the food was exceptional. Met two friends there and each of us ordered something different. I had the Ten Pin pizza. I asked for garlic as an extra and was told the pizza was "is as" and couldn't add anything extra. I have never been to a restaurant that wouldn't take care of the... More

Guy Fieri is absolutely correct in his opinion of The Alley Restaurant's Oxtail Soup. Oh my - absolutely delicious! The oxtails were plentiful and that broth has so much depth. And dipping the oxtails in the fabulous ponzu sauce takes you to a happy place - perfection! While we were so full of goodness by the end of the meal,... More

A 30 minute drive from Waikiki (as long as hour and a half at rush hour) brings you to City of Aiea and the Aiea Bowl. Located inside of the Aiea Bowl is the Alley Restaurant. The restaurant spills out into the bowling alley itself. Folks from all over come to feast on the old school cuisine and the scrumptious... More
