We had to wait a bit to get a table but once we did we loved it. The food was great and reasonably priced. The service was great. I had the beast bowl.

Hard to rave enough about this place, as it is an extraordinarily out of the box menu, filled with risk and ambition, but executed to its fullest potential, leaving your mouth and belly crying for more when it is over. If you get to eat here, definitely consider your belly lucky indeed. Try the oxtail dumplings, which are surprisingly light,... More

Very nice experience - the ambience, the food, the service, drinks, food. They make their noodles in vegetarian broth which is great if you are a vegetarian. Sit at the bar for a romantic date night. They are in the heart of downtown (I stayed close by so simply walked to it) and are open late. Must try in Hawaii... More

Be careful when parking near the restaurant, some parking spots are really expensive. But when you drive around the block for a while you can find free parking without problem. We did have a reservation and therefore, without waiting, had been placed at the bar-counter, as requested. We studied the menu and decided to go for 'Pork Belly Bao' and... More

Had read about Lucky Belly on TripAdvisor before heading to Hawaii. Reviews were great. Ate there today and totally exceeded our expectations. I've never had better service. Each wait staff took the time to make sure we had water, beverage, and attention the entire dining experience. Ordered the Shrimp ramen bowl and a pork sand which. Both were excellent. Great...

As our final dinner in Honolulu this restaurant in Chinatown was amazing! Easily the best meal we had all vacation. We ordered a bunch of appetizers including a hot pepper appetizer that had a 1 in 10 chance of getting a very hot pepper. The beet salad was amazing. We shared a bowl of ramen and the gnocchi among three... More

Downtown is a mishmash, but is getting gentrified and is turning into a semi-hipsterville cool place. Didn't seem to have too many obnoxious tourists either. The bar is funky, and produces excellent cocktails. The wait also might not be as long as you think (we got told 30-40 min, took about 15), and besides you can have a fabulous cocktail... More

We had been touring all morning so by 1:30 in the afternoon, we were starving and ended up in Chinatown. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food so fresh and delicious. Lamb rolls were crispy and the sauce was so good we used up every bit on the noodles. We had a bento box special and shared... More

Had a week day lunch there, seating right away. Very nice and the special of the day was a bento box which I ordered plus their plantation tea. Excellent presentation, delicious bento. Others with me had their famous 'ramen' noodle soup plus sandwiches. All were excellent. Will go again!

Thank chico95durham99
