We were persuaded to go here by a local Uber driver as we were looking for something easy and low key. Pleasantly surprised is the first reaction. It’s a bit off the beaten track and seemed mainly filled with locals. Eclectic decor. Service was prompt...More

This place is excellent. The service is fantastic. The food is very good, with plenty of options. Favorite dishes include fried pork chops, fried chicken, kim chee fried rice, kalbi ribs. You are going to have leftovers and it's just as good the next day....More

Share wonderful entries with family and friends or as a couple. Take the advise of the wait staff on options. The Kapahulu location is much more upscale than the Hopaka location. Same great food and price. Only about 1 1/2 miles apart.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this restaurant. It is a bit worn inside and out, but has some of the best island inspired food on Oahu. The waitress we had was the best ever-funny, attentive, fast, and gave us lots of good info....More

This place has the best, authentic Chinese food. Come with a big appetite, portions are huge. I only wished our hotel had a microwave. Chefs from other restaurants come here to eat after work.

Side Street Inn has been a casual local favorite for many. The location is convenient. I’d recommend reservations in advance. They offer valet parking. The menu selection is extensive with many local style favorites such as their fried pork chops. Prices are reasonable.
