Wow...what a meal! This was our last night in Oahu, and we saved the best for last. Reservations are a must as this is not a large restaurant. We were seated promptly at a table, and we sampled the very innovative cocktails. So delicious and great balance between alcohol, botanicals and fruit juices. Our starter was the vegetable spring rolls...outstanding flavor! For main, we tried the Pho and the spaghetti, the latter was a fascinating umami dish with many different and complementary salty and savory flavors. Finally, we shared one of the Sundae Funday with Jamison Whiskey custard and coffee sorbet ina waffle cup topped with chocolate crack. The flavors were subtle, creamy, sweet and crunchy. It was gone in a flash. Outstanding meal and our server was on top of all of our needs, and made great recommendations. If you have the chance, go have a great meal!

Food is very unique flavors. Well worth the extra $'s paid for Vietnamese. The vegan broth wasn't as flavorful as it used to be - seems like some of the spices are no longer being used. Hope was a one time thing and that they're not changing menu / cutting costs ...

We had the wings, mom's pate chaud, pho 75 and dessert. All the food was amazing and the drinks were great. Only issue was that our first drink order took a while to come out. Would definitely recommend. Menu changes regularly but all the dishes we had were spot on.

Highly recommend. The food and service were excellent. We enjoyed the variety of tastes on the menu from sardines on toast reminiscent of Portugal to a Burmese salad. Our guests from the mainland were very impressed and asked us to reserve again when they return.

I have dined here previously and was not disappointed. I took three others that had never been there and they loved it too. We arrived earlier than our reservation, but a table became available and we were seated early. Service very attentive, and the food and drinks are creative and excellent. Its not a quiet venue but lively conversation was welcome that night Highly recommend this place.

I’ve never had a bad experience here or at Piggy Smalls. Service is always excellent but reservations are a must, unless you have time to wait long. LFC and pho strami are always hits. The acoustics suck though so be prepared to be shouting a bit over your meal.

Reservations are required as the location is absolutely packed. Food was excellent. Very tasty! Moderate selection of options for vegan friends (though they don't do substitutions to make dishes more vegetarian/vegan friendly). The place gets quite noisy when it is full so it's hard to have a conversation, but you're there for the food anyway, right? :)

Valentine’s luncheon - the signature chicken wings were the best! Banh mi french dip only so-so. Didn’t even finish the 1/2 I split with my husband. Tried the lilikoi malasadas for the first time. Nothing special for the $, and I was not impressed. Wish I had ordered the Hanoi egg coffee again.

The Pho soup was definitely good, but the branzino we got was just not good. Oversalted and a tiny portion which was the most expensive item we ordered. We also got the summer rolls and beans, which were nothing special. Overall I definitely would not make a second visit...

We used to live in Hawaii and when we came back to just visit we knew we had to come to Pig and the Lady. They did not disappoint. The French dip, chicken wings, and Pho was perfect. Not sure where they are getting their baguettes but crunchy on the outside and super soft on the inside. The meat was so tender. Next time we come back to visit Oahu we will definitely come back. They also have a kids menu which turned into a cute pig when folded. My kids loved that.

Loved it! The staff is awesome, the drinks creative but not crazy, and the food! We’ve never tasted some of the flavors. Wonderful to walk from the outside of funky Chinatown to such a hip but not overdone place where each dish is so specific... we could go one, but won’t.
