Side Street Inn on Kapahulu Avenue was an enjoyable experience for our party of 10. The reservation was confirmed prior to our arrival and our table was ready when we arrived 15 minutes early. The wait staff was attentive and the food was all very tasty. The puupuu menu was as advertised and the entrees served family style were all consumed with gusto.

Waiter wasn't that great. Fried rice was cold, everything else was OK.
Wish I had another Waiter but it is what it is. Hope things get better, worst service I had since I've been coming to side street inn. Thanks again Mr Nishida

Family style dining - 2 mains (shrimp scampi and misoyaki chicken) plus house fried rice and yakisoba were more than enough for the five of us . Food was excellent, service was a tad slow but not a problem. Easy to watch the football game on the many well placed wide screens. Valet parking at $6 is easier/safer than the next door lot. Servers were friendly and easy to find even tho the house was quite busy.

This place has high reviews but was also recommended by a local. I don't think this is a tourist destination, despite being 5 min from Waikiki. The food was fantastic. Big family-style servings of garlic chicken, kalbi ribs, pan-fried pork chops, and fried rice. Everything done just right. The mai tais were excellent, the service was friendly and quick. The parking was not so convenient before 5 pm, and this place is packed after that, so get reservations and plan ahead. It's worth it!

Always a family favorite. GREAT food, fast and friendly service, great drink selection. This is a "can't miss" from every perspective. Valet parking underground the building; an outside parking lot next door (towards Waikiki beach area).

Short ribs and Buffalo wings were a big hit with my grandchildren. It's a busy family friendly restaurant that provides excellent value and quality food. The service was exceptional with great attention to keeping our glasses full and meeting our ever changing needs.
For a family dinner that is high quality and doesn't break the bank combined with excellent service I would highly recommend Side Street Inn.

Side Street Inn is one of our go to spots. Sometimes you just want a break from the fancy high end establishments and here you can grab comfort food that is always great tasting and still different from the morn back home. It is great to see non-tourists getting together as friends and family and gives you a feel of what it would be like to live here. Pork Chops, Fried Rice, Kalbi... all good! Lots of sports in screens.

Consistently good, local-kine grinds. Big portions for family-style eating. Fast, friendly service. They were flexible and accommodating when we called ahead to increase the number of people in our group more than once (started with 8 which was stated as the max allowable in the open table app, called to increase to 12, then 16) Probably helped that it was a Sunday evening, not Friday or Saturday night, but they were still busy.

As normal, everything was great. Our server was in training and while very nice and attentive, it seemed like the nuances of serving us were still coming together for her - some food came out really early and some really late, too quite a while to get our finalized charge back, etc. Overall, acceptable to the circumstance. Food, always excellent. It was a bit noisy but it was Thursday Night Football so totally understandable.

No such thing as a Truck Stop in Hawaii--but this is the closest thing goin. Family style dinning at its best. Great food at a reasonable price. Loved the Nalo salad, garlic fried chicken and short ribs. We had a group of 5 hungry airline pilots and although 2 of us had been at the Side Street numerous times the other 3 had not and they all plan on going back again. Mahalo.

We brought our friends who were visiting from the mainland for dinner. Always love the boneless Kalbi. We also got the fried rice, yakisoba, and fried crispy pork. Everything was awesome. Hard to go wrong with anything you order. We topped it off with the creme brûlée which was great. Our waitress was excellent. Always enjoy dining here.

Our group has eight different restaurants/bar that we rotate from week to week. Side street is one of the best for good food, drinks, and great service. Being able to book reservations online was easy and so convenient!!

Came here with hubby and daughter. Food was great! And the portions are huge! Had enough left for another full dinner!
The works fried rice was my favorite and the garlic chicken. Hubby and daughter were fans of the boneless beef ribs that came sizzling on a hot plate.
The place was crowded so make sure you have a reservation!
I think the locals made up most of the diners. No problem here!
Lost a star only because it is a bit tricky to find in the dark and the bathroom is through a door in the hall. ( maybe I shouldn't lose a star for that?)
Anyway. If you get dropped off it looks like it's in a company building. Just walk up the four steps and you will see it right inside the door.

We always go here for a birthday get together. We had two birthday guys in our group. The food is served family style. The food is always good. This place is always busy. Make a reservation, if you don't have a reservation, go there early before the dinner rush; or, go later after 8pm. Our waiter was good in the beginning; but left us hanging. We could have ordered more, we wanted water refills, had to wave him over. But then again, the place was busy. He comped a dessert for one of the birthday guys. Thank you. (The other birthday guy had to leave early). We all had a nice time, and we will be back. BTW, when you have a group dining here, make sure you have an accurate count and everyone is on time. The hostess was great to accommodate 8 of us when I made the reservation for 7. (My bad)!

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.
