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

Just arrived last night. First place we tried. Amazing pork chops. I have never said that about anyone's except my own mothers recipe. Steam buns were great as we'll. will return before the week is over.

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

The food was amazing! The portions were very generous and extremely reasonably priced. We had 5 people and ordered 4 dishes and ended up taking a lot of it home with us. Our waitress was so nice she was quick with the drink refills which was so important since we were dying of thirst. She was also very kind and... More

Because then it might be even harder to get in! It's a local haunt not meant for tourists, and I'm the tourist who wants to keep it that way. Never mind that I found out about it from Anthony Bourdain. Outstanding food you might describe as gourmet Hawaiian comfort food. Large servings are meant to be shared family style, in... More

My son's boss recommended that we eat at this place while we were on vacation in Hawaii, but when we saw it, my first thought was, "How much does you boss like you?" My description of the exterior was "seedy", my son's description was "sketchy". The interior didn't look much better, but when the food came, all appearances were forgotten... More
