“Come Hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We heard about this place by word of mouth from the valet guys at our hotel and they were right. Funky location but good location close to Waikiki (just a couple of blocks from Rainbow Inn and Leonard’s Bakery). And in the same vein good food, lots of it and crowed with locals. Not much on décor but they make up for it with great food and large portions so come hungry. This is a great place to bring the family since all the food is served family style and the menu focus is for local dishes. The fried rice is enough to feed 4. They are known for their pork chops but we ended up fish and it was done just right. The sizzling steak platters smelled fantastic as they came by. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For desert we had the bread pudding which was more than enough for both of us.
Great place to bring the family and remember to bring your appetite as well.

“So Ono!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Local friend suggested Side Street for a late dinner and it was awesome! Ordered the fried chicken, fried rice and pork chops! Auntie ordered oxtail stew and she loved it! The mac salad was good too! Service was excellent! Easy access from the parking garage...Auntie used her walked and the elevator was close to the entrance of the restaurant. Did order the peanut crunchy chocolate dessert - excellent choice! So tasty with vanilla ice cream and a very crispy peanuty topping! Enjoy!

“OK fusion food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Cannot eat rice with a plate and chopsticks. The fried rice with a bit too much Chinese sausages and oil. The fish was not up to par. The pork chops were the best of all, cannot complain on that one.

Many reccomendations brought us here, what a dissapointment.
The "famous" pork chop was dry and bland, the fried rice doesnt deserve being put on a plate, and the fried chicken we left after we had a bite. Overall ambience was stale and bright, however the service staff were friendly.

Would we go back? No way...

“I loved this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Side Street was recommended to me by a colleague who got the recommendation from a Hawaiian. We went to the one on Kapahulu.

The prices were very reasonable, the food amazing, the drinks very very good, and the service great.

I had the pesto-encrusted ahi. OMG. Talk about amazing. We also got a plate of fried rice to share which was a good idea because the portion was huge (a whole meal for one-two people).

I had some drink called the "something" Tea... it was green, had citron and other liquors, and very good. They do NOT skimp on the liquor.

I only had two drinks but was buzzing the entire evening. If I'm ever in Honolulu again I'm totally going back here.
