Amazing dinner that was well seasoned and balanced every course. Will come back to try some things that were sold out by the time we started and cocktails were solid as well!!
Menu is locally sourced and changes periodically, so you never know exactly what you're going to get, which I love! Every dish is full of flavor and unique, so you're in for a treat no matter what you get. I'd highly recommend the chicken long rice croquettes, schezwan veggies, and keona hummus!! Great service and cocktails, too. Can't go wrong.
Friends in town. Recommend MHW as we’d been there before. Was as good as we remembered and just really interesting food, not “just” great flavours. Clam & Sausage in coconut milk is just amazing. Staff knew there stuff too, which just adds to the passion about food.
Another fantastic meal at Mud Hen Water.
This has become our go to restaurant when friends are in town. The food is deliciously prepared and served with warmth. We will definitely be back.
Amazing food and flavors! Such a treat for brunch with breezy indoor/outdoor feel makes me feel comfortable and able to enjoy my time dining. And service is outstanding, perfectly attentive without intruding.
One of the best restaurants in Honolulu. The bartenders are amazing!
Can highly recommend the Family Style plan. It’s like an omakase of vegetables. If your family/friends lean towards pescatarian and have one carnivore (to eat the chicken), this meal will make you happy.
We’d order this again.
Seating outside felt very safe…just that it was windy and the umbrella almost took out the server’s eye.
As always, the food is delicious, ambiance is great. Service is okay this time. But overall it’s a great restaurant to enjoy.
Beautiful delicious only-in-Hawaii food. Nice thoughtful and balanced cocktails. Warm service. Dining outdoors there is occasional traffic noise and strong breezes blowing away our menus and napkins repeatedly that night, but the sky was beautiful pink and we were very happy to be at this wonderful restaurant.
Amazing experience. The family dinner was a hell of a value, we split it among 5 and still walked away stuffed. Good drink menus too
Mud Hen is a great place to eat. In the heart of Kaimuki town, that place is a gem. Great food and the staff is friendly.
A beautiful evening with amazing service, delectable food, intriguing drinks and feel good vibes! 🥰🥰🥰
We always make sure that we dine here Everytime we visit the island of Oahu. We enjoy the ambiance, staff and the food is always very delicious.
Some of the best food I’ve ever had! I feel it’s a must do in the Island of Oahu and I highly recommend the Family Style Menu, every dish was a home run for me. I’m definitely going back and now I have a must go to restaurant for every time I have friends or family that visit.
There are only a handful of places I eat out at these days—something dictated by outdoor seating—and this is one of them. I love sitting at a picnic table on the patio drinking whatever the kitchen sink cocktail of the day is and grazing on laulau.
Every time we go we have such a good experience and the food is always incredible. They have a good thing going!
Definitely get the breadfruit, the fern shoots, and the brownie!!
One of our favorite spots! Food is always special and Vishnu’s Vice is a special cocktail for sure. 5 stars!
Delicious twists on Hawaiian classics, the sausage and clams were amazing, order the croquettes.
Delicious! Everything was delicious. We had hummus, chicken rice croquettes, fish sandwich and the outstanding Rice butterscotch miso pudding. Cocktails were superb but a bit pricey. And dog friendly! Definitely going back.
Had the fish and luau fish….it was really good! Very tasty and lots of depth of flavors.
Everything was good but it was too salty - two dishes were way too salty, but I love this place otherwise
Mud Hen Water offered delicious food with unique ingredients but at higher than average prices. The ambiance was good but none of the menu options struck me as unique or tasty enough to warrant the prices. The menu itself is slightly confusing and there is an emphasis on family style dishes. Individual portions are quite small.
Everything was amazing except, the music was terrible at times. Very childish sounding.
Quality service, really delicious and innovative/thoughtful dishes, comfortable, clean and upscale casual atmosphere.
Would do it again… and again.
Food was familiar but with a very unique flare.
My wife and I shared several small plate apps and an entree. Couple of drinks and was still just under $100. Very good deal for the quality of food. Compared to other fine Waialae eateries, it’s a great deal. We are definitely going again soon.
They were able to accommodate us and we were very grateful.
Helpful, prompt service. We ordered nearly the whole menu and all dishes came out promptly and were interesting and unique.
We love MHW! Such a beautiful mix of local, Asian and American flavors.
Delicious food, great service, neat atmosphere. Local staff kind enough to even give recommendations for other things to do on island. Get the chicken rice croquettes and the clams and sausage.
The spacing and layout felt very safe. The food was varied and delicious.
Delicius ambient and food, all farm to table.
This was truly an amazing meal! The dishes were unique in flavor & presentation highlighting the fresh vegetables from local farms. We loved everything and have eaten at a lot of great spots around here but this stood out significantly for its quality, vibe, and service. Kalani, our server at the bar was so cool and friendly. He was very knowledgeable about the restaurant and food. The highlights were the croquettes, beet poke which tasted exactly like ahi tuna, and the chocolate brownie! We highly recommend and hope to come back!
This was highly recommended by friends and we were very pleased with our meal. Lovely evening, wonderful food and very attentive staff. So unusual and foods I’ve never had before. Great experience.
We Love this place. We travel to Hawaii yearly and always enjoy the food and the service.
Fantastic food. Great service. Awesome drinks
I took myself out on a date to Mud Hen Water and had a beautiful experience. The waitress helped me select menu items, including dessert!, that were vegan & gluten-free. I really enjoyed the combination of health-supportive ingredients and flavor, and left feeling like my microbiome was very happy. The space is also beautiful. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience! (Also say yes to the mimosa at brunch!)
Great place for Hawaiian fusion!
Beautiful patio and delicious food.
Recently had brunch, was disappointed in a go to breakfast favorite hash & eggs. Eggs were done nicely, bakery items yummy but the hash really fell flat. Maybe it was the manner it was prepared...portioned small, pressed down and not much meat flavor. I was expecting a more generous serving of a savory homemade hash. I do like this restaurant but unfortunately it did not deliver this time.
