That food was excellent as always. The beer was cold and at a great price. The place is always crowded, especially on the weekend. The host was a little flustered, but was able to accommodate our party of three. The table was set up between the kitchen entrance and the exit to the bathroom. Not the most ideal place to sit, but it was okay for the three of us. Kinda felt like the servers were gonna accidentally dump food on us in their rush in and out of the kitchen. The place happened to be featured at the time on the food network and the crowd roared their appreciation during the show. Felt surreal eating there and watching the place on tv at the same time.
The food was excellent and the service top notch. If you like the food at the original location Hopaka near Ala Moana SC, this place will not disappoint. Very large portions and reasonably priced. I enjoyed the Pupukea Salad very much. I also recommend the Roast Pork Poke and Yakisoba. Reservations accepted and good for kids.

Garlic chicken was bomb!!! Salads were interesting with shrimp, taro chips, avocado all kine hiding in the salad. Fried pork chops were nice. Everything was fresh and tasty. Just be prepared to pay $7 for valet if you can't find street parking. Or get one parking lot next door but not sure how much cost?
This is a hidden gem in Kapahulu Ave, in Honolulu. The portions are what you dream of in every restaurant you go to, HUGE. Definitely go when you are very very hungry. Also great for large parties or to take the family.
Must get their signature fried rice. We also got the garlic chicken, which is fried to perfection; along with their teriyaki beef, which was juicy and tasty. They also have a great selection of drinks to enjoy.
A must go if you are in Honolulu!
The best spot by far. Crazy good local/ fusion food. Honestly just get the deal where you get basically everything. The garlic chicken is so good, the Kalbi is the best I’ve had, and the pork chops are chefs kiss. Fried rice is a yes. The poke is decent, the salad is weirdly really good. If you wanna get diabetes order the peanut butter crunch, unforgettable dessert. I love coming here with my family it’s good vibes. Best to make a reservation, if not there’s always the bar. Food comes out HOT and nobodies waiting for me to take pics so they’re steamy lol.
Today was our first time eating dinner here, and it won't be our last. This place has amazing food. The food is family style and a la carte. Huge portions that are sharable with friends or family. It's a little overwhelming if it's just two people, but if you're anything like my wife and I, then you too love leftovers. We ordered the kalbi beef ribs and pork fried rice. The rice plate was so big that we ate ⅓ of it and probably took 3lbs home as leftovers. The ribs are thick and are strongly marinated with a nice char to them. They were a little tough but not bad for thick cut ribs. We also went home with rib leftovers too. ( I like cold ribs in the middle of the night 🤪) We also ordered the potato mac salad. It was thick and creamy with mayo. I personally make the best Mac salad in the world. I owned my own Hawaiian food truck and catering business in Alaska. I personally like to add red onion juice, a little dijon, sugar, and apple cider vinegar to my Mac salad. That being said, I'd give it a solid 6 out of 10 on their Mac salad. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and kept the waters refilled. I can't wait to go back and try the chicken and the porkchops.
This place is amazing , always packed and serves beautiful food , with big family serving . I stumble on it by accident but the long queue at 6:30 on a wednesday says it all ! Servings is enormous !
We had the kalbi ( korean short rib) deboned ( perfectly cooked ) and deep fried Ahi Belly and a half portion asian salad.
The kalbi is my favourite of course , but the deep fried tuna belly is also amazing . The half portion salad is more than enough for two people , as is the one serving of white rice .
Highly recommended for family , couple and singles alike , 5 stars from me. It is a bit of a local institution apparently !
Tried this place for the first time. Good food, generous portions, fast service, good variety of choices. We took the package and added to it. Came out more than satisfied. Great choice.
Great local place for food. Large portions. Tasty combos. Older place could use a refresh on decor. Very friendly attentive staff .
Today was my first time eating at Side Street Inn. The food was very good, especially the pork chops. If you love desserts try the "Peanut Butter Crunch", it was absolutely delicious.
This is a restaurant where your eyes can definitely get bigger than your stomach!
We had a party of three and none of us have been back since the pandemic, so we ordered our favorites… needless to say that we ordered way too much food! The dishes we ordered were as remembered though and it felt great to devour as much as we could, but in all honesty, the portions were so big that we hardly made a dent.
I’d highly recommend this spot, but it’s no dieters paradise, so be prepared to gorge yourself!
Absolutely amazing food! HUGE servings so definitely bring a friend and an appetite. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were fantastic, friendly and had a great sense of humor.
