“Hickam AFB's Sam Choy's - Overall Pretty Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

This review is actually for the newly opened Sam Choy's on Hickam AFB at the former Sea Breeze near Hickam beach. The food was pretty good overall. The food was quick. Friendly staff and welcoming. Atmosphere is a bit rustic in the open air seating near the bar, but inside was pleasant with great ocean views of Hickam Harbor. Overall a good experience. Plenty of parking. Good location for a walk on the beach following dinner without the crowds of downtown.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

This restaurant is located within Hickham Air Force Base in Honolulu. We were a party of 6, there for lunch. We had 2 children with us. The menu, while somewhat limited, offered something for everyone. The children's' menu was also limited, but there was something each of the children wanted.
We had outdoor seating on the expansive porch overlooking Hickham harbor, a slight breeze and wonderful salt air smells.
The prices were reasonable, I thought, about $12.00 per person.
The waitress was right there when one of the drinks spilled and was nearby for the remainder of the meal. Average prep time for getting our meal.
Would recommend the restaurant is you have access to the Air Force or Naval base.

“Dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Someone in town recommended this place for oysters on the 1/2 shell. Definitely not worth the money. Service was ok, but the server didn't know all the answers.

“Can't beat the Fried Poke with Fried Rice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Sam Choy's Fried Poke (seared cubed raw fish) with Fried Rice is ALWAYS great! His Loco Moco is also very good but I usually always order the Fried Poke.

The breakfast was lots of food, enough for 4. It was well prepared and not greasy or otherwise bad. The coffee was very good as were the fruit juices. We ould return for breakfast.
