Worth a look, but only houses a few high end stores. Good place to shelter from the heat. Some of the fashion stores have different items like the Marc Jacobs store....had very different bags not similar to other stores.

This building has a lot of high end brands for accessories and makeup which I love and always purchase on vacations, but I do agree with the below posters about being a bit racist or unhelpful if you are not Japanese specifically. I'm even Asian but they can tell you are not from Japan obviously. I was making large makeup... More

Best shop for the serious shoppers!! The comes docs floor is AMAZING not to mention the prices of perfume. Aussie this is the one for you! In the middle of the strip heading away from the beach show your passport for further discounts absolutely worth a visit!

i agree with all the other reviewers, Hawaii kisses Japanese people's butts. if you're Not Japanese you don't get treated as well as them.. but you wish you were rich.

This is the most racist place I have ever been to, if you are not Japanese, don't go. We were looking around and no one spoke to us, they were only interested in the Japanese. There were two people handing out leaflets to go to a new store opening I heart (something) they wouldn't give us one or the two... More

I had the misfortune to visit DFS when people who obviously appeared as though they might spend more than me were there. Although I was waiting to be served, and had been there before anyone else, the staff member walked straight past me and served the other people. As I left in disgust she asked if she could help me.... More

What an amazing place. Such a plush entrance with upholstered chairs and lounges where the non shoppers can sit and wait. You can get lost so try and notice something that you will remember when you start and panic. It really is a maze of luxury shops. Go and see it you don't have to spend a cent it's nice... More

Out of curiosity went window shopping at the DFS Galleries. The place is a like a maze. Very easy to get from one shop to another. Godiva was the only store that was in my budget.

I like this hidden upscale plaza. The shops are all great names and quality products. It is a beautiful shopping experience with shops that please. This shopping area is what has helped make Waikiku world class!
