Side Street Inn Kapahulu Ratings and Reviews
As others have said, awesome fried rice ...
As others have said, awesome fried rice (not too salty, acceptable level of greasiness) and spicy garlic (fried) chicken (succulent and moist with a delicious garlicky and slightly sweet sauce). Portions are huge, so it's better to come with a larger group so that you can try other things. We only had the chicken and the fried rice but other dishes looked amazing!
This restaurant is nothing fancy to look ...
This restaurant is nothing fancy to look at and if the valet and next-door public parking lot are full, parking is difficult, but don't miss eating here. This is absolutely the most delicious Chinese/Asian/Hawaiian food anywhere. There are creative twists on classic dishes, and there are unique dishes too. The menus is huge; prices are fair; portions are large and meant for sharing. The busy wait staff is on top of everything and very helpful and attentive. Unless all you care about is elegant ambiance, go.

Sidestreet is a lively restaurant favored by local residents. A great place for a family event. Portions are immense and meant to be shared. Their fried rice is memorable. They serve many local choices, some Japanese, and even fried chicken. Noise level is such that you can still talk and be heard. It is fun watching the young children enjoy with their extended families.

We ordered fried rice Teriyaki beef and pork chops.Size would easily feed family of 4. Everything is served family style. Food was of high quality and good flavor. Service was excellent, not to intrusive, but checks on drink refills and making sure order was correct. Atmosphere of restaurant was cool. People of all ages and backgrounds.f For the sports fans, there were a few TVs tuned to sports channels.

Reservation in at 4:45 pm for early dinner. They were able to accommodate a booth for us. Server efficient and polite. Of course pork chops and fried rice are standards and as usual, delicious! Only disappointment was the did not have beef jerky we wanted to pick up.

Great place for drinks, pupus and family gatherings. Bone in Short ribs, mochiko chicken, chinese pork poke is the must haves. Chili nachos and the deserts OMG! But overall the friendliest staff ever. From entrance to the bar and floor staff. Not to mention Chef Colin and his lovely wife Mel. Love this place!!

Always a great time. Great food, service and fun. Never disappointed. Can practically close your eyes and point at a few things on the menu and you will be having a great meal to share with friends. One of my favorites.

Very local and huge volumes. My picky about Asian food parents couldn't get enough of the fresh caught whole red snapper steamed Chinese style. It was full of flavor and cooked perfectly. The tofu salad was enough for 4 people to share. Fried calamari was Katsu style with Panko bread crumbs, extra crispy outside moist inside. We had a reservation so no wait but by the time we left, there were lots of people waiting to be seated. Valet parking for $6 is a little steep but beats looking for a place to park in that busy area near Kapiolani park.

If you leave this restaurant hungry...it's your own fault. The menu selections and service are top notch. The favorites at my table were: blackened Ahi, Buffalo wings; and various salads.
For a family night out Side Street can't be beat for value and exceptional food.

Second time at this location of Side Street Inn and liked it as much as first time. This time had a group so were able to take advantage of the large portion sizes for starters and entrees. Tasty food in a family friendly environment. Only difficulty is that it is hard to have a discussion across the table because of noise level.
Can't ever miss at Side Street. I can honestly say, I have never had anything there I didn't like. I take a lot of mainland visitors here and I tell them you can practically close your eyes and point at the menu and have a great meal. Secret item: Smoked Meat Fried Rice. Not on the menu but really awesome.

Hadn't been here in a while but the boneless kalbi was as excellent as I last remembered them. Hubby tried the spicy garlic chicken which he liked better than the Korean chicken he had ordered the last time. We also ordered the day's special which was Colin's bacon-wrapped meatloaf over mashed potatoes, which was very good as well. The only setback was the noise. Since they have sports monitors all over the room and there was a basketball game going on, and people were cheering on their teams, it was difficult to have a conversation.
