We have traveled through Japan, and this ramen shop in Waikiki is the best noodle place we have ever tried. Outstanding service, knock your socks off pork belly buns, rock star ramen, and tasty cocktails and sake made shopping in Chinatown simple perfection. We cannot wait to return!

We decided to try this restaurant on our way back to Waikiki from Pearl Harbour. The staff were welcoming and friendly and we had a delicious lunch- pork belly bao, shrimp dumplings and bento box accompanied by sake and beer - would highly recommend.

Great experience of the fusion of cultures that is happening on the islands. Located in Chinatown, Lucky Belly serves combinations like Lamb lumpia and kim chee ramen. It's a very small venue, so if you go during high traffic time be prepared to wait for a seating. Food is great. Drinks are also interesting and great. Enjoy the local food and atmosphere

I was sadly disappointed with our visit. The brilliant reviews enticed us. Service was very friendly and informative but rushed you through courses. The food was over priced and over rated. Starters were ok. I had a prawn noodle main dish and the prawns were over cooked and the rest was tasteless. We were rushed out in less than an hour!!
We had hoped to wonder round China Town after our meal ! No chance!! What no one said on the reviews is how dodgy the area is and we felt we just needed to get back to our hotel as we didn't feel safe.
Don't go, it's a rip off.

This place came highly recommended to us & as lovers of Asian food we had to try it!
We opted for the sharing platter for starters and this was delicious! A mixture of large dumplings (lobster, oxtail & beef) on a plate with different sauces.
For mains I opted for the Beast Bowl ramen - which got its name from the meat but I think it's because of its size too - and it was the nicest ramen I had ever eaten!
My husband opted for the katsu curried beef cheeks which he devoured!
I really wish we could go back - or even better have a lucky belly at home in the UK!
