Service was fast and attentive. Porkchops melt in your mouth. The house fried rice was delicious. The Kobe boneless ribs are to die for. All the food is served family style and there was plenty for all Must stop while visiting Waikiki, traditional local dishes, exceptional quality and service

Great place for groups, family or dating
Food quality, presentation and taste is spot on. Ordered fried fish, fried calamari and boneless kalbi was amazing! Fresh and so ono (so good!)

Our group loved Side St. Inn on Kapahulu. We had Colin's Classic and it was delicious and a lot of food. I wish that Side St. Inn would be open for lunch on weekdays too. Thank you to Chris, who helped with the reservations, Aunty Josie, who answered a lot of my questions; and Chad our efficient server. The food was served so fast.

We never come to Honolulu that we don't visit Side Street Inn at least once. I can hardly wait to eat their Pork Chops and Fried Rice. These are most delicious Pork Chops on the planet. Every year we bring our friends and family with us and they are impressed with the great food and excellent service.

The pork chops were the best I have ever had. I am not much of a rice person so I didn't care for the fried rice too much but my wife liked it. The kalua pork sliders were excellent.

Sorry i didn’t get our waiters name but he was awesome! He made sure we had water, let us know that our last dish was taking a bit longer than expected, and was prompt at every request we had. Chef Colin’s Menu, is excellent! The choices are all our/my favorites! We will definitely return, hopefully, sooner than later!!

Not impressed with the food. Service was very inadequate, had we known that each entree is a single item we would have ordered side dishes as well. Our waiter was kind but not once did he check for beverage refills, inform us of each entree and what it did or did not come with (sides), or even ask us for dessert. Will not dine here again nor give a recommendation.

The food is served family style, which means you're going to get a lot of very good food. We were a party of 2 and we asked them not to give us their usual family portion as we could have fed 4 easily. Our waiter was top notch, but can not remember his name, which is a shame because he deserves the recognition. Great food, wonderful staff. Mahalo!

I am really disappointed in Side Street Inn. I always place reservations on Open Table and request a specific booths. So far it has always worked out , however, my last visit was a disappointment. NO specific booth. All they could say that they were sorry yet that does nothing for me. Management did not even offer a free drink, so my regular visits must not mean much.
Any how I will have to think if I am going to continue my monthly visits.

宴会場みたいな広い店内にお客さんがぎっしり。お誕生日会や家族イベントで来ている地元の方がたくさんいて賑やかでした。
お料理は和食と中華の要素を取り入れてカジュアルなシェアしやすいメニューが多いです。日本人の口にとても合うと思います。

Although the food was great, overall I would not return especially for a date night like my husband and I were there for. The noise level was very loud, very much like a bar atmosphere. We were seated at a table that was not only too close to the kitchen and next to a major walkway inside the restaurant but the table itself was missing the finish, leaving behind a sticky surface that was gross. It was terrible listening to the wait staff call out IN AND OUT! each time they entered and exited the kitchen. And because of being seated close to a walk way, people kept banging into the empty chair next to my husband which then banged into him! On a positive note, our waiter was good and attentive. I don't recommend Side Street Inn for a romantic evening.
