5 of us shared 5 dishes. All were excellent!!! the only reason I rate it 4 out of 5 is atmosphere was a bit casual for me. TV's - bar.......but the food was first rate!

My son and I asked our bus driver where he and his family eat - he recommended the Side Street Inn. We took the city bus there from our hotel on Kuhio and had the best dinner of our trip here. Real family style place, with helpings to match - they were HUGE and delicious. Will definitely go back there... More

The food was great. They give you a lot. It's family style. We ordered way to much for four people. We ordered Likikol BBQ Baby Back Ribs (I did not have any. To full), Misoyaki Chicken (great!), Side Street Style Fried Chicken (great!), and the best of all was their award winning Fired Rice. That was the best I've ever... More

This place is a great find. Much less of a tourist trap. The spicy crispy chicken was absolutely delicious! The chicken was crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and the sauce was incredible. The house fried rice was also very good. The portions are made for 4 so also very reasonably priced. Would absolutely come back.

I had heard about this place for years and finally got to go. Showed up at 6:00 PM on a Friday night without reservations. Had to wait on benches outside for around 15 minutes before getting a table (could have sat at the bar counter immediately if I had wanted to). The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food... More

This is a grungy sports bar with comfort food. We ordered the calamari, pork-chops, mushrooms and ahi served on top of greens. The calamari was over breaded and tasteless. The mushrooms were sautéed in garlic butter and topped with Parmesan. They were very good. Finally we had the fried park chops which were dry. Overall this is an average place... More

After all of the great reviews, I have to say that I was disappointed! We ordered the pan fried pork chops and the side rice. You get a lot of food that's for sure and we shared both plates for the two of us. The pork chops were not as juicy as I anticipated and the rice was just okay.... More

Garlic chicken is one of the best dishes I have ever had. Please expand to Las Vegas! Service is awesome. Nothing to disappoint.
