First, parking is tough.

Second, the wait. we waited 25 minutes on a Monday at 12:30 pm.

Once we were seated the waitress told us that they were out of oxtail soup. What????

Your premier item and you are 86'd at 1:30 pm on a Monday????? That is just poor management.

Everyone told us to come here. So we came from LA, 2000 miles away, for the oxtail.

You have got to be kidding! It made the chicken taste not so good.

Don't waste your time here. Go to Cam Bowl instead!

Had the chicken bowl and it was very greasy. We also had the bacon cheese burger and it was okay. Like the chicken the fries were all grease. If you like fast heart attack food this is the place.

Located adjacent to the entrance of and co-located with a local Aiea Bowling alley it can be intimidating to enter. however, I encourage you to embrace the challenge. Friendly staff, quick kitchen and very good food. You can't go wrong w/the Bowls or the Plates - even the pizza looked good.

This little restaurant is located in a rundown strip mall in a bowling alley. I would never have imagined dining here while in Honolulu, but it was actually a good experience. The dining room is reasonably sized, but tables are close together and the dining room is not particularly inviting because it is so noisy from the bowling alley. The staff was friendly. The menu has regular bowling alley fair such as pizza and sandwiches, but they also offer bowls and plates. We had the Ahi Tuna Bowl, the Salmon bowl, and Shoyu Pork plates. The bowls come with one scoop of white or brown rice and your choice of macaroni or green salad. The plates offer one additional scoop of rice. The portions were large and the prices reasonable. The food was delicious. The service was poor. Two meals came to the table about 20 minutes before the other two, so we could not dine together. Other than that, it was a surprisingly good experience. Be sure to save room for dessert. They have many good offerings. We shared a slice of the Insanity Chocolate Cake and it was outstanding.

We went here for lunch before a work meeting and I am glad we picked this place. It was a great lunch in a very odd environment. If you are looking for ambience this is not the place. If you are looking for amazing food in a bowling alley this is your place! The alley edamame was delicious and the cola turkey is very flavorful and yummy. Go check this place out if you are in the area!
