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

Food is okay, but the horrible service is really what stands out about this place. Even if the food was somehow amazing, I wouldn't recommend putting yourself through the irritation. And they take forever to put out orders... Which sucks when you get fries that are cold... Overall... Don't waste your time unless your a hungry bowler

So maybe my expectations were too high, influenced by Guy Fieri's visit on Food Channel's Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives. I was looking forward to consuming an awesome generous serving of their famed Oxtail Soup. Maybe their kitchen had an emergent shortage of cooks, which may happen at times. Whatever the reason was for the last remaining order of their famed... More

They have a few specialties that are really good: Oxtail soup, hamburgers, and especially their tempting desserts. They are located in the Aiea Bowling alley, so it's pretty loud most of the time. The service is okay, but they are usually so busy, the staff kind of take it for granted. There is a large seating area outside of the... More

This is a tough one. We had dinner at The Alley Restaurant, on what they call a Tasty Tuesday. They serve a fixed menu for $42 per person. We had a mahi appetizer, followed by a veggie salad, pasta dish, and bacon wrapped filet mignon. Dessert was a walnut apple strudel. All the food tasted good, but could have been... More
