The food was the best we've had on the island. It's just a diner inside a bowling alley. Try the oxtail soup and the tasty chicken. The tasty chicken was the best I've ever tasted. It's crunchy and sweet. Yum. The manage was awesome and service was great. Always checking if we needed anything. We decided to bowl a couple... More

For a real Hawaiian experience, the Alley Restaurant proves to be it...great food in an unpretentious atmosphere. Oxtail soup was excellent...rich broth with tender oxtail, cilantro, ginger, and an Asian (sesame oil, soya sauce, a little vinegar) sauce...top it off with pumpkin crunch dessert and friendly service..truly Hawaii!

We had 3 of us for dinner & each had a alley plate with Kalbi & another entree. Everything was amazing: Kalbi, alley chicken, sesame crusted ahi & teriyaki salmon. I'd love to eat here on a regular basis!

We were in the Aloha Stadium area and were searching for a local place to eat, with good food and reasonable prices. We relied on a show we had seen, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, to guide us in our selection. We were not disappointed. Yes, it's a bowling alley and it's noisy, but the staff is phenomenal and the food... More

My husband & I had the first ticket to the Arizona Memorial. Since we were staying on the North Shore, we had gotten up pretty early to drive through Honolulu's traffic to reach Pearl Harbor in time for the 8:00 boat to the memorial. After we'd taken in those sites, we realized that we'd have to either settle for the... More

Just a short hop from Peal Harbor and the Airport provides a home cooked, local-frequented casual service. Good Pizza, Chicken, & Oxtail Soup.

Found this restaurant on trip advisor because we were close (Arizona Memorial) and it had good reviews. We were very impressed with this local food after spending the past two days in Waikiki. Wife had the oxtail soup and it was delicious. I had the tasty chicken with the macaroni salad and it was great. Our two friends shared a... More

The Alley at Aiea Bowl was highly recommended by our flight attendant while flying over to Oahu. She suggested us to try the chicken. It is located right in the middle of a busy outdoor shopping mall with plenty of parking spaces available. You may place your take-out orders at the window or eat inside. It is a restaurant that...

Had seen a "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" episode spotlighting The Alley, and was curious to check it out... stopped in for lunch before the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet around the corner, and was not disappointed in the least! Ended up being our favourite meal (amongst many) on Oahu, with great local flavour, the very definition of "Ono!" The Tasty Chicken... More

I had heard of this place, a bowling alley that had great local food in Aiea. I had to try it. Turns out they are right! If you didn't know this place you wouldn't go, but you need to if you want local food. When I say local food I mean a mixture of Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Hawaiian. I... More
