I ordered a vegetarian dish today - veggie with tofu and rice, a little disappointing as the tofu is too dry. Past experience was good with the pho and soup.

I was in Honolulu for two weeks and came to this restaurant twice. The Bahn Mi Pho dip was so good! Highly recommend the sandwich!

The food was very good, especially for those who like to explore. And for the meat-and-potatoes people there is amazing fried chicken. We went on a First Friday Art Walk evening and it was interesting to walk around the neighborhood.

Had a truly incredible experience. Service was top notch (thanks Christopher), and all of the food was so good! My wife and I came all the way from NYC to celebrate with some of our local family who had never been, and everyone LOVED their meals. Can’t wait to come back the next time we’re on Oahu!

Food could have come out slower. A fine restaurant such as this should be about the vibe and not the speed. Other than that - just amazing.

2人で行きました。
手羽先(レモングラスなどハーブが美味!)とポークチョプ(ボリュームと脂身が)を頼みました。
ポークチョップはワイキキ内の中途半端なステーキよりよっぽど美味しかった。フォーも食べたかったが、ボリュームが...

The hostess got brought us our drinks before our table was ready which set the tone for our experience. All the food we ordered was delicious, and the service again on point.

My wife loved the bathroom theme, it brought her back memories of her childhood.

We were too full to try dessert so I am sad about that. We will definitely return to try more on the menu and leave room for some tasty ice cream!

Very enjoyable dinner. The Laos chicken wings are almost a mandatory order, delicious. One nice thing about P&L is that the menu changes frequently with the seasons, so there is always something new to try. Very friendly and cheerful service. And soft serve custard and sorbet sundae with chocolate sauce, what could be better?

It was disappointing compared to Piggy Smalls.
1. The appetizer ( spring rolls) tasted sour and not worth $10
2. The banh mi ( roasted brisket) tasted flat and baguette was not even crispy.
3. It took forever to process my bill. Server said they were trying to reboot the computer or something.
4. Location, ambiance, food, service- I have to give it a thumbs down . My dear friend who I invited for lunch felt the same way.

The food was absolutely phenomenal and the service was great. This restaurant was “out of my comfort zone”, but I loved everything we ordered. The brisket sandwich and the pho was outstanding. Large portions and full of flavor. The servers were attentive and explained the menu well. The management even came to our table to show us “how to eat” the spring roll appetizer which was also so flavorful. We’d go back in a heartbeat!

We went there for our Anniversary. The service there was first rate. He’s suggestions made all the difference in our experience. He was friendly and kept up with our needs. GREAT Food!!! We had the Red Wine Pho and the Chicken. Both were so good. We had penicotta for desert. This was from heaven.

Went for an impromptu lunch date with my hubs and omg! It was a culinary excursion!!!! I ordered their crispy chicken in curry broth with noodles and my guy ordered the crispy pork belly on a bed of slaw. The flavors of each dish were exquisite, savory and ONO!!!! The Chicken curry dish was the right amount of spice IMO and just enough coconut without it overpowering the main flavor of curry! My hubs dish was also amazing. I had a very small bite, but even then, was able to study the flavor well enough to know we’ll soon be returning!! Also ordered the Thai tea - it wasn’t anything special, but gave a nice finish to a delectable meal!

Pig & the Lady is a modern Vietnamese cuisine restaurant. Le fried chicken wings were amazing. So full of flavour ... l would say possibly the best chicken wings l've ever had. All the dishes were well described and recommendations were excellent. The portions were huge leaving us with lunch the next day. Overall the food was five star and full of flavour and the service was top notch.

We were nearly 30 minutes late to our reservation due to a late nap and jet lag, and yet the restaurant was so accommodating. We were seated right away upon arrival, and what an amazing night of food and drink for our anniversary celebration. Thanks, The Pig & The Lady!

We were fortunate to have our favorite server, Keenan. He greeted us warmly and explained the recent change in the menu. He helped us to navigate the new dishes and pointed us in the direction of many delightfully tasty ones to opt for that night. We tried the Vietnamese "pizza" with sweet corn and mushrooms, scallop and clam curry, fermented tea leaf salad, vegetarian spring rolls, le fried cauliflower. Every new dish was flavorful and eye appealing. But, of course, our dining experience was made extra special because of Keenan.

Food was incredible. Authentic Vietnamese elevated to a gourmet standard. All flavors and spices were on point. The fried chicken lived up to the hype. Top notch, personable and knowledgeable service. Our best meal on the island. Wish the Pig & the Lady team would come to Los Angeles! They’d be a big hit in our home city.

We went during lunch. Three of us shared a brisket french dip bahn mi with the side order pho, a regular order of brisket pho, the pork belly dish, and the honey lavender ice cream. Everything was delicious. The brisket and the pork were super tender and flavorful and the seasonings were nothing like I've tasted at any Vietnamese restaurant before, including the ice cream. The service was exceptional. Our server was knowledgeable and quick (we were on a time constraint.) I loved how they divided our dishes into 3 portions. It made it so much easier, cleaner, and quicker for us. The restaurant was packed, every table filled. Fortunately we made reservations. It's a bit pricey for lunch, but totally worth it, especially on special occasions.
