Found this gem on the last night of our Oahu stay, when we walked in the neighboorhood. We were three people sharing several appetizers and one main. The pork belly Bao and shrimp gyoza were both very tasteful. Highly recommend this place for locals and people visiting Honolulu.

We had tried this restaurant several years ago for lunch and loved it so tried it for dinner on this trip. Both the service and food were still at a high standard. Portions are large and well priced. We shared the pupu sampler which gave us 6 pieces of their most popular starters ( oxtail dumplings - yum, Bao -... More

This is a great place. The pork belly Bao and meat ramen were excellent. The ramen broth was rich, flavorful and well seasoned. The food was fast and hot. The servers were attentive and friendly. My son had limited options because of his food allergies but they worked with us to get a meal together that he liked. Would definitely... More

My husband found this place, and I am so glad he did. The area is being revitalized, the restaurant decor was great and relaxing. Although we had not made a reservation, the wait was only about 5 minutes. We shared a table with a local couple who eat in their area often. We started with cocktails which are very unique,...

We visited Lucky Belly on a Friday night and waited about 20 minutes for a table. The ramen was so good and the bowls were huge! We also really enjoyed the craft cocktails.

I visited here based on the reviews and ordered a simple fungi ramen bowl. It was quite good. I'd like to return and sample some of their other dishes, which looked amazing.

I loved my drink which had a pickled plum, plum wine, and sake. We loved the lobster shu mai and the shrimp goyza. The oxtail dumpling was a little on the sweet side with hoisin sauce. The kimchi and shrimp ramen was really good. The food in Hawaii tends to be on the salty side at all the restaurants we... More

The food here was very well prepared and had great floor and zest. The staff were very friendly and efficient. My wife and I both had bowls, one bowl and something else would have worked better. We ended up with way more noodles than we wanted. As an aside, We really liked this part of old Honolulu, lots of old... More
