This place is always filled with the neighborhood crowd comin in for pho or any of ot their other great dishes. The BBQ pork over rice noodles or the Vietnamese Seafood Soup are personal favorites

We love eating the chicken Phó and imperial rolls. The service is great and the food is delicious and fresh. We dine in and take out and everything is always consistently great! A must for delicious Vietnamese food.

Hale Vietnam offers pho, summer rolls, salads, rice dishes and a while variety of tasty dishes. They don't skimp on the vegetables that go in the pho! The wait staff are super friendly and quick, especially during lunch time. It's worth the wait for parking...More

We were heading to Himalayan Kitchen but instead thought would give Hale Vietnam a first-time try since it was closer to our real destination--fro yo or gelato afterward. The prices seemed higher than a typical Vietnamese place. We ordered the imperial rolls appetizer, tofu curry,...More

You'll find very generous portions, reasonable prices, fast service and very cold air conditioning in this busy Kaimuki restaurant. It's always busy, so you'll probably have to wait. Don't get put off by the perfunctory service; they're trying to get every body served and happy.
