A hip little gem in the heart of Chinatown with friendly, helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere and amazing food. Try the pork belly bau - you won’t forget it. The shrimp tacos were also fantastic. All in all, a definite winner!

We live in Maui, and come to Oahu for the food. This place is amazing. We both got soup and it did not disappoint.

Had a mixture of many recommendations from our waitress. We experienced many things from beets to bi bim bap to pork belly.

Loved this place. Sat at bar and had the pineapple ice tea. We had a bento lunch with fresh grilled ahi, fish tacos, ramen, and a pork wrap. All were great but the fish tacos were the best. They also had a great craft cocktail...More

Lucky Belly was recommended by friends, and it did not disappoint! Service was delightful -- the server knew the menu well, and the kitchen without asking, and without charge, split all the items we ordered into two portions for us. Don't miss the Appetizer Trio,...More
