  • "My family was going home and had to be at the airport by 5:30 , so we booked a reservation for 3:15. The only problem was that there was no parking in the building and I refused to park on the outside being afraid that their suitcases and valuables will be ripped off. I was willing to pay for parking in the building so that worked out. The timing was perfect, we even ordered the delicious whole steamed fish, which is never available at night so all went well. Thank you for the delicious meal and good service. Our Texans came home for a short visit and we ate there twice. They requested your place for their final meal. Thank you."

  • "Love the food. As usual the pork chops and garlic chicken were the best. My son loves the calamari. The best way to enjoy all the different foods is to go in a group so that you can order several of their yummies. Even though it was father's day, the service was still excellent and food was fresh, hot and great tasting."

  • "Just like it's mothership store, the Kapahulu location is just as great. The food was excellent, the service was great. Only disappointed that they did not wish my sister-in-law a Happy Birthday. I did enter that in the special occassion section of Open Table."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. Our order was taken and the first courses were at our table quickly but with no rushed feeling. The food was delicious and, of course, we couldn't eat it all. We had the spicy chicken and the short ribs and both were fantastic. If we lived here we'd go to Side Street Inn on a regular basis."

  • "Food was VERY good and service was outstanding. Waiter was MOST attentive and polite and helpful. However, so many kids in the place that it was very noisy and we were unable to have a conversation. In spite of that, would definitely go back again for a delicious meal and great service."

  • "Reservations are very much recommended. Ours was At 7:00, we arrived 5mins earlier and was very pleased that our table was ready and waiting. The waiter was very pleasant. We ordered their infamous grilled pork chops, so juicy and tasty. Also the house fried rice vs the kim Chee. Had it previously, its so so. Also ordered the market price Kobe beef with bone out very tasty, but a bit on the Salty side I thk next time we will go with the chicken salad vs the fried rice. And dessert was their pretty popular peanut butter chocolate crunch ala mode!! Da bomb!"

  • "This is a "must go to" anytime we are in Oahu. The food was excellent & Kyle's service matched it. Can't wait for our next trip. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "The Kula salad and kim chee fried rice was delicious. but our main dish Pulehu beef was over salted. It would have been good if it didn't have too much salt and kid of grisley. This wasn't the first time that I had a main dish that was over salted from there before."

  • "Sometimes you just want to have a great dinner with no pretense... Nothing fancy! Yet the food still must be delicious! Side Street hits the spot. We always walk away, pleased with our meal. The casual atmosphere and reasonable pricing is welcome."

  • "Food was good as usual but I think I've had better here. Maybe it was just the selections since ate things we normally do nor order here. Everything was fine but the wait for things was longer than usual. Still a great spot for dinner and one of my personal favorite places to eat on the island."

  • "In what it asked for, it was wholly delicious. Everybody was satisfied."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Food is amazing with local flare and a fusion of island cuisine. Pork chops are amazing and the fried rice is Ono Ono. The finally desert peanut butter crunch will change your whole world, I highly recommend."

  • "Side Street on Kapahulu in Honolulul is always recommended by locals. Our group of 4 had 3 of the house favorites, fried rice, fried pork chops and spicy fried chicken. The portions are huge served family style and they discourage you from ordering too much. The food was great and the service was quick. It's great when a restaurant lives up to its reputation."

  • "As someone of Japanese descent, the food here hits all the right notes. Probably wouldn't do the volume of business it it wasn't in Hawaii."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "It was very noisy due to to all the people there to watch March Madness. There are too many TVs and the CC was not on the evening I was there. Other than that, the place is fabulous - just make sure there isn't a major sporting event going on."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great food in a bar/diner setting. Wear your shorts and flip flops and chow down on the enormous portions."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Any menu is also very pleased very delicious.I go whenever I went Waikiki."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The Kapahulu location has all the great SS food from the original Ala Moana location, with much more convenient parking and good size booths and tables for parties. Service can get slow though when they get crowded and we waited a long time for our food because there were two large parties in the back - not really an excuse that a restaurant should make."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We thought we'd try this place since it was mentioned in Sunset Magazine and we were very disappointed. The ribs we just ok but the fried rice was just plain bad. The portions were huge so I can see why it's so popular. I cannot seriously recommend it."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Hey, if it is ggod enough for Allen Wong, it is good enough for me! Highly recommend, fried rice, Asian Salad, Boneless Kalbe Beef, and Frien Pork Chops! Wait staff handled our 6 top perfectly, and we ate family style, mixing and matching. Open Table res was so easy ans Side Street Kapahulu is very busy with long waits at popular hours so, use Open Table! Works great and we'll be back soon!"

  • "My husband and I had reservations at Side Street Inn on Monday. The restaurant was packed. The host was really friendly and we were seated right away but were put at the table right next to the service station/kitchen so there was a ton of foot traffic around us all night. The waitress forgot to put in our starter (ahi poke). Normally when this sort of thing happens, they comp a drink or something because of the mistake. Nothing here. My husband had the bacon cheeseburger and I had the bacon cheeseburger sliders. The food was fine but the cheeseburger was greasy and gave my husband an upset stomach. A large group was seated next to us halfway through dinner and after they were seated it was nearly impossible to get the waitress's attention"

  • "Had a business diner and it was great. The food and drinks were outstanding as usual and they worked diligently to ensure that the meeting was a sucess. The relationships with now our partners was forged with the help of Side Street Inn."

  • "Great atmosphere. Great food. A wide variety of comfort food for any taste. Awesome dessert. Great selection of wine and spirits. Our family swears that the boneless kal-bi is the best you will ever have. We ALWAYS order the boneless chicken, "pocho" clams, calamari. pork chops and fried rice. Leave room and don't forget to place your order early for the molten chocolate cake for dessert. A fun place to dine."

  • "Our girls' night out included 3 first timers and they were really happy with the service, the food, etc. Definitely on our return dining list. Our waitress was really sweet."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Side Street Inn is a very nice sports bar as well as a great place for couples as well as groups, very accommodating. Food is well priced and portions are generous and comes in a family style. Their Fried Pork Chops (a house specialty) or the spicy bone-out chicken are our favorites. They have a good variety of appetizers and other specials. We had the button mushrooms with garlic sauce, very tasty. They have a good wine and cocktail menu; I prefer the regular Margarita or the Mohito. Their service is fast and friendly with other waiters and waitresses eager to assist."

  • "Took a friend of mine out for dinner. Food was good as always but my mashed potatoes were really salty. I'd still come back. It wasn't the worst but I was surprised. I usually have exceptional food here."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went there for Valentina's day. Not exactly a romantic place to be but instead a causal dining experience. Restaurant is clean and has a "bar" theme, food portion is family size, good for large groups. Food is local and had some Chinese twist. Be prepaid for the smoky smell on your shirts and hair from the sizzling plates people ordered around you. Valet is $5 which I think should be $3 instead cause there are plenty of self parking and are feet away."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had been to the other Side Street location and this is the newer restaurant. The food was the same as the other location and we love the food and friendly atmosphere in this restaurant. It is best to go with a group as the dishes are served family style. The value is great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "If you like the food at the old Hopaka Street location, but find the atmosphere to be a little ... um ... basic, try the Side Street Inn on Kapahulu. Our group tried the fried rice, kampachi and garlic chicken washed down with Chardonnay and pints of Longboard. It was all good and the service was quick and friendly. The restaurant is in converted office space -- nothing fancy, but comfortable. Dress casually. Valet parking is available, but so is self-parking in the adjoining lot. Great place to take visitors staying in Waikiki, since it's a walkable distance from hotels on the Diamond Head end."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "From the reviews my impression of this establishment was higher. The service was good our server was very informative, yet the food left me puzzled. I wished the food had more flavor, was little more refine in concept and less in quantity. Nothing was terrible, but probably will not return. The self parking lot is stressful, wish we knew about the valet parking ($5.00)."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "First time visiting this location. I always go to the original Side Street. I was happy to get a good table, good service, not nearly the noise of the original location and still the best food. A friend wanted to order the pork chops and we found them a bit dry but other than that, the fried rice was a good as ever as were the lilikoi ribs. YUMSTERS!"
