This one was on our list as soon as we started planning our vacation. Online reviews spoke of out of the box interpretations of Vietnamese dishes, unexpected flavour combinations, and outstanding service. They were spot-on!!

The space is industrial chic with high ceilings, exposed ductwork, and an array of whimsical posters and homey kitsch.

Our server, Mark, was on point the whole night. From food and drink suggestions, to a surprise Birthday dessert for one of our group, he was perfectly attentive all night.

Menu highlights included the LFC Wings, Chicharrones & Papaya Salad, Kurobuta Pork Chop, Chicken Fat Rice, and Plantation Iced Tea Malasadas.

This place should not be missed on your next trip to Honolulu.

We visited The Pig and The Lady twice, once for desert, and on a different day for desert.
The deserts were good, and the Hanoi egg coffee is a specialty of this restaurant.
We then came back on a different day for lunch, trying both the beef pho and the Bun Cha; they were both good, but too salty for our taste.

We went expecting Vietnamese food, and there was certainly some of that. But they had Caprese salad, and pasta - neither of which you expect on a Vietnamese menu. Both had interesting additions to the recipes which made them stand out.

Booked a reservation at this place based on the reviews...once again TripAdvisor reviewers get it right!!! Loved this place....a funky night time oasis in otherwise quiet Chinatown....very cool vibe and yummy food. Very knowledgeable wait staff gave us excellent info on the food and drinks and offered to exchange my husbands specialty cocktail when he didn't like it....a classy move.! Wings were delicious...so was the pho!! And if you are a coffee lover, the Hanoi Style Egg Coffee is heaven! Reservations are a must!!!

Based on the crowd, reservations are a good idea. We had one at 11:00 which was the only ‘lunch’ time I could get. They actually open for lunch at 10:30!

We started with the Green Papaya Salad with Shrimp….. well, without the shrimp I should say. They forgot the add-ins so we had to wait for the shrimp to be grilled. Next we both had the Pho French Dip sandwiches. My husband looooves French Dips and he said this was one of the best he ever had. I thought it could benefit from a little more hoisin and veggies though. For dessert we had the swirled soft serve (nothing special) and the chocolate crinkle cookie (warm and fresh).
