The mall is ok. However, the movie theater is very COLD. I went to go see a movie and had to leave as it was just too cold as I was concerned about getting sick. I complained to the front desk and requested to talk with the manager but the lady didn't even look at me. I got my money... More

Decent mall with a Whole Foods. Definitely no Ala Moana, but a good alternative especially if you want to get out of downtown for a bit. Plus, it's only about 5 minutes from Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha so you can go there before or after!

The mall is very small. The prices were not impressive according to my expert shopper partner. The adjoining strip looked old and dirty. The buses and trolley stop here and there is a Chili's in the outside area.

Pretty good mall without the high end shops Waikiki and Ala Moana has to offer. Nice food court center that's wifi friendly close to the Apple Store. Overall good local mall.

Kahala Mall is small yet offers quality shops and local boutiques on site. It's completely the opposite size of Ala Moana and does not require too much walking here. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner here, so much to choose from. When I was a teen, I would come here with friends to go to the movies. Taking a... More

This mall is very small and parking is terrible. We went on a Sat. And had to return something on a Sun. Macy's was having a great sell so that made me felt like I didn't waste my time. Positive note it appeared to be very clean. I kept seeing the sign for Ross but it wasn't open yet. Overall... More

It is a small mall but in a fix it has what you need. We needed to get clothes and some comfortable shoes and the Walking Company, Macy's and Banana Republic had what we needed. There is a movie theater and a basic food court with a Jamba Juice, Panda Express etc. It also had an apple store. Easy to... More

Smallest mall in Hawaii. Think they lucked out when Whole Foods moved in. Pretty crowded with tourist. No food court but lot of places to eat throughout the mall. CPK, Whole Foods, Panda, Bale & McD;s outside. The usual Jamba & Starbucks too. Better off fighting the traffic & going to Ala Moana.

Went there on am the bus from Waikiki the bus journey was fairly chaotic but once we got there the mall was reasonably quiet and calm, which was a welcome change. It isn't as big or well equipped as the Ala Moana centre ,but given its size it's a good mall to use up a couple of hours. The stores... More
