Delicious! Definitely recommend sharing and trying numerous options. Also save room for dessert :)
Great overall experience. Great value for food and drink.
Best meal I’ve had in Honolulu
Bartender is not friendly at all; expect a wait for your drinks
Loved the food, see
Outstanding food and service Original creative Pleasant outside tablevbut some noise from the street Excellent and good valure
Our party of 4 enjoyed unique and tasty dishes on the family style option, including 3 desserts. We sat in the outdoor seating area … and the ambiance wasn’t as nice as the indoor seating. You could hear the traffic on Wialae Avenue, including sirens from ambulance and police cars. However, our server and the delicious dishes far outshone the ambiance. Definitely recommend Mud Hen Water.
Everything was delish, especially the Molokai Venison Lau Lau, and the cocktails, so yummy!
Food was very flavorful, the small plates are great so you can try more items and the cocktails were awesome! The service was fantastic too!
nice flavors. when i arrived there was no one there there, staff seemed out of synch.
I highly recommend the "family style" approach for the variety of tastes, each one delicious!
As always, the food was excellent and the staff was warm and friendly. We love bringing our mainland friends here.
Amazing!! One of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Perfection. Will go every time I’m on the island.
SUCH a cute spot for a date. Fresh, affordable, beautiful ambience.m and attentive staff. Thank you!
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.
