    The service was very good and being a small sports bar within a market, it was quiet. We tried the fried saimin and poke special, they were very good. We preferred the fried ahi belly they used to serve vs the Chinese style offered now. Enjoyed the evening and plan to go back.

    Convenient and easy to book and well worth it since the bar tops can get busy on Friday and Saturday. Mary is one of the friendliest bartenders and caters her drinks to the customers taste

    Love it when I arrive Alexis always gives the biggest “smile” from behind her mask and in her voice. She was helping a customer at the time I stepped In but she made sure she greeted us. I love that she remembers our favorite drinks ( although I can be finicky at times and change it up). She makes sure that the orders that come from the kitchen for her customers come out sizzling hot when it is supposed to and the drinks nice and cold to cool us off on those hot hot days.

    The server and bartender was very attentive of their zone, checking in with all the patrons for order quality and also drinks in a timely manner. food came out quick hot and fresh. i didnt mind that we were in the middle of foodland since the bar ambiance was enough to disconnect with whats surrounding us. would come again to watch the game or just pau hana after work. great staff and service will have you coming back time and time again. chee

    Happy Hour a Pau Hana bar is always a go to. Mary is aways amazing & friendly. Drinks are always great. The only downside is it’s in the middle of the store. I love the loyalty program, hence the reason I always keep going.

    As always Alexis is a beautiful and bubbly person. She always knows what I like and does a great job . She takes care of me reminding me of Happy Hour. Then I was transferred to Cheyenne another beautiful, bubbly person. They make it hard for a lot of us regular ms to stay for JUST 1 or 2 drinks. I am waiting for the menu to improve. Many great thinks we’re removed. I miss the Oxtail Soup, Clams, Pau Hana Puffasadas . Would be nice to have green salad, soups, garlic fries with wavy steak fries to hold all the yummy garlic in the ridges.

    It’s always a pleasure to have drinks and food at Pau Hana. Staff always so friendly and attentive to all! Of course we had the salt and vinegar chicken skin and fried noodles! Two things that go with Beer Lan Omakase beer.

    Went to try Pau Hana with the expectation of the food being at least as good as Foodland’s okazuya and other pickup and go food which I enjoy as far as ready made food. The food at the bar was a big disappointment. My bf and I ordered the sizzling steak, brussel sprouts, and Chinese style ahi belly. The brussel sprouts were okay, would have preferred them to be more cooked, with at least a hint of char on them. The ahi belly was also just okay, could’ve used more ginger and cilantro, I guess the fish was just half Chinese. Of the dishes we ordered, this was the best, but nothing I would come back for. The steak was the biggest disappointment. I don’t know what kind of steak they used, but it was hard to chew, not tender at all. We ordered medium rare like it should be. It came out medium well on a “sizzling hot plate” so became well done before we started eating it. The steak was also covered with too much sauce, which I guess helped with the chewiness. Sad, it was what the bartender stated was very popular. As for drinks, we ordered old fashions, but made with four roses which the bartender recommended because we don’t like Hennessy which is what they usually use. I don’t know if it was because of the four roses or if the drink just wasn’t made right. It was lacking. It had too much bite. We should’ve just had some straight whiskey; Knob Creek, or Elijah Craig, even good ol Crown would have been better. Ambiance was good, nice vibe to it. Service was kind of slow. There were 2 bartenders, the one on our side was busy serving those already there a few times before we got water and our orders taken. The people there seemed like regulars I was okay with waiting, but it would have been nice to have been acknowledged. A “be right with you” maybe? Or the hostess (not sure if that’s what she was) could have got us water? She didn’t seem too busy. The other foodland eateries look good so I want to try them, but I don’t need to come back to this one.

    My experience at The Pau Hana Bar in Foodland Farms Pearl City was very enjoyable. From the moment we sat down at the bar our bartenders were very attentive to our needs and even suggested a few recommendations of their own that were just spot on. We’ll definitely go back for more.

    I usually enjoy my time at Pau Hana bar, but I have to say that I'm quite disappointed by this last experience I am writing about. I made a reservation for a Friday at 7:30PM, but I would recommend making a reservation at 7:00PM at the latest (the OpenTable reservation system should also make 7:00PM the last reservation available, in my opinion). When I walked in, I immediately got the feeling that I was not welcome there. Both from the servers and from the customers. The primary server looked at me like I was crazy talking about a reservation, the bar/seating areas were completely full, and when he finally checked the reservation system and saw my reservation, he looked completely baffled. He asked me to wait on the side and gave me some menus and about 10 or so minutes passed before I even was noticed by another server asking me what i'd like to eat/drink. There was still no seating available for me at that time. I was waiting for a friend to show up and time was running by, so I asked what time the kitchen closed. The prior baffled server said 8:00PM. Why would you allow a reservation 30 minutes prior to the kitchen closing?? This makes no sense to me. I ended up talking to that same gentleman and asked him to cancel my reservation. I didn't order food or drinks and it honestly was over maximum capacity in the bar area as a whole. I was quite disappointed, but maybe next time I'll be able to come back and enjoy myself with a reservation that's actually got seats reserved for me.

    Food was excellent. Wait staff was very friendly, efficient and attentive. If I had one complaint, it’s that it was very cold. But it’s located inside a market, so I guess that’s unavoidable. Will definitely be back (with a jacket in tow)!

    Food, customer service what can I say but great. I always feel good when I learn there are newbies there. Tonight a family of 5 from Michigan was there and heard about Pau Hana Bar from the internet. I felt proud of being a local wham they asked what other local favs are there before they need to go…

    The initial seating arrangement was made a little complicated by a young woman with glasses and black hair. Even though we had made reservations in advance. It took the about 15 minutes to get us chairs. And she wasn't pleasant about it. But once we were settled and seated, the very nice waiter apologized for her rude attitude and the seating mix up. The service went very well after that.
