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!

Went there on our last night of our vacation and were very happy we did. We actually ordered exclusively from the appetizer section of the menu as we had noodles for lunch and were not disappointed. Every dish was fantastic! We have to take a 7km bus ride from our hotel but it was well worth the trip.

We stopped by here after making the rounds in Chinatown. I read the reviews online and couldn't agree more. From the oxtail dumplings and lamb lumpia to the beast bowl ramen was amazing. The staff were all very helpful and great. Hats off to the chef.

The reviews are right, this place is simply delicious! Went here for lunch with my wife after touring the Iolani Palace. One word describes their Raman noodle "Lucky Bowl" : YUM

We stumbled upon Lucky Belly and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were recommended to try the appetiser mixed plate if their 3 most popular dishes which included the lobster dumplings, oxtail shu mai and the pork belly bao buns. All were really flavoursome and great value. We then shared an beef ramen bowl, I was a little disappointed though my... More

Found this little Bistro like place while in Chinatown and had lunch on a Saturday. Great find. Nice people all around and the food was most memorable. I had the lunch Bento Box with spicy Mackeral, a great little salad and a chinese bun with pork belly. Stop in when in Chinatown in Honolulu.

We had been on a 8 hour Chinatown adventure and this was the last place we stopped by on our way back to the hotel. I'm almost positive we would move from Maui to Oahu solely for Lucky Belly! The atmosphere is amazing, service was perfect and the food was literally to die for. Definitely recommend for those visiting Chinatown!

Very busy lunch spot in Chinatown. Servers are skilled, attentive and helpful if you have questions about the menu. Well designed, attractive small restaurant interior. We had the special bento box with cod on a bed of rice, delicious sauce and salad. The scallop lobster marrow appetizer was amazing. Unique and full of wonderful flavors and textures. Also tried the... More

Had some good veggie options. Not great for me as a gluten free person, but everyone else loved the ramen.
