“Terrible Service”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This was my last visit to this restaurant! We sat there and had to aggressively wave down the wait staff to take our order. It took so long that the people whoo came in after us had eaten and left before we even got our food. We only ordered three entrees. The food is nt that good where it's worth waiting like that. My suggestion? Go to Pho One!

“Authentic & Great Vietnamese place”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Every time we stay in Oahu, our first choice for the dinner place is Hale-Vietnam. We really love their Vietnamese Fondue (Shabu-Shabu Hale style) with Beef, prawn and Squid wrapped by rice-paper and fresh herbs.

“consistently good and fresh food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I've been going to this place now for years and it is one of the most consistently good places. The food is always fresh and tasty. The service is fast and courteous. Not surprisingly, it has become increasingly popular! But it deserves it. Kudos to this neighborhood restaurant.

“Light and Tasty Fare”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Not a real fancy sit-down place, so dress is casual. Tucked away on 12th Avenue in Kaimuki, just look for the yellow sign. Pay parking is available (and enforced) 24 hours. This restaurant has a nice selection of both vegetarian and meat entrees. Noodle dishes are quite tasty, as is the the green papaya salad. There are curries available as well. Expect to pay about $15 per person.

“A must stop!”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

A must stop for great food at reasonable prices. If you go at non peak hours you won't have to wait in the long line.
