This was my first visit ... I had the pa Thai garlic chicken. The food was hot & smelled good but it was old as if it had been sitting in a warmer for several hours. I will probably never go back & if I do return, I won't order the same thing. More than likely order something that's cooked... More

Cannot be repaired; any mouth who has ever been so fortunate as to have eaten the delicious food at the Fort Street Cafe. Two of the hardest working people in the restaurant business provide warm welcoming attention and a wealth of offerings that consistently exceed the expectations such a modest restaurant might inspire. Last evening's take-out for seven was ready... More

This place is popular and you will see often see a queue during lunch time. The owner and staff were all friendly and get your order out very quickly despite a long line during lunch time. I lived in downtown Honolulu with many choices for food but I am always back to this cafe for their Garlic Chicken, Panang Curry... More

Kind, caring attentive staff. Food is consistently delicious; flavorful, and generous. Prices are reasonable. Other cafes nearby may have one or two guests. Ft. Street Cafe has a line out the door.

Huge pieces of chicken and so much flavor. I wish I knew about this place a longtime ago. Service was fast and good places for sitting.

I've been coming here for years. Usually the college kids and people who work downtown come here. The food has been consistently good. I usually get the chicken Pho, Garlic Chicken Salad, spring rolls or curry when i'm in the mood. If you see a long line dont get discouraged, it moves very quickly. The owners are a couple and...

Excellent service, reasonably priced for Honolulu. We eat here sometimes for breakfast (rice,egg and veggies) and 3 or 4 times a month for Penang curry and pad thai with tofu. It's a great "go to" place in our neighborhood!
