Great local place to go to be out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The food was delicious with large servings so dishes can be shared. Some in the group ordered pork chops, they were large, tender and delicious. We had a large group, staff was attentive. It was a good value for this expensive city and not too... More

My friends who grew up in Hawaii brought me there. The ambiance was vibrant and the food taste good. I tried something like pork chop, steak, fried chicken, and they all taste good. Moreover, the price is fair, so overall it's good value for money. The place is packed easily so better get there earlier.

First of all, servings are huge. Bring lots of friends and share, family style. Ordered Poke appetizer. Pork chops and "kimchee' fried rice. This is more than enough for 4 people. Still had to take home the fried rice.

Family style, prices are reasonable, but not huge portions. It was tasty though. We had to use valet parking as it was pretty much impossible to find anything close.

Great service. Every employee was so nice! They let us sample their house beer that the owner brews himself. They also gave us samples of boiled peanuts and Kim chee. I had a side salad and my husband and I split the fried rice and the boneless kalbi. Next time I'll definitely save room for dessert!

As a family on vacation for a week, it gets a bit much eating out all the time. What a great place this is. Food served family style, large portions and very good flavors make this a perfect place to bring the gang. The fried rice is wonderful. My husband ordered ox tail soup, which we could share because the... More

I was told about this place by other people, and decided to go there. Farmer salad was unexpectedly delicious! We were advised by others to try the following (Pork Chops, Spicy Chicken, Award Winning Fried Rice & Boneless Kalbi)… I judge the Kalbi to be the best of the 4 dishes, but the Farmers Salad was a GREAT start. We... More

We had dinner here with my husbands local family on our last night in Oahu. The food we selected was excellent although I would have preferred a few more healthy selections on the menu. We had snapper which everyone enjoyed (I did not have any), fried rice that was delicious & port chops. We also had a salad which I... More

I say it is a great choice for real food because the best food I had on my trip was from Side Street Inn. The pork chops, scrimp scampi, and fried rice were my favorites. I visited it twice while and both times the wait was over an hour. We decided to eat at the bar which was good since... More
