The 310,000-sq.-ft. Royal Hawaiian Center sits on land once known as Helumoa, the home of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop in the 1870s and 1880s. It’s highlighted by the 33,000-square-foot Royal Grove, one of the largest open green spaces in Waikiki. Throughout the day, the event-friendly area showcases entertainment and cultural activities, including arts of Hawaiian quilting, lomilomi massage, ukulele playing, hula dancing, lei making and kapa cloth making. No worries if you’ve been at the beach and are covered with sand. That’s the case with most visitors!

They have restored this beautifully with lots of outside areas. There is a range of entertainment available through the day, entirely free and it's a lovely place to stop in. The food court has a range of options for all budgets, which you can then take out into the garden area and watch the shows. Great local music and dance... More

There is an upstairs food court which has a good variety of different cuisines to please all kinds of taste buds at good prices. Upmarket shops on 2 levels surround this amazing complex. Definitely worth... More

This is a beautiful mall. Redone a few years ago in such a tasteful way. It's so pleasant to visit the central garden where they host shows and exhibits. See it at night-magical. The mall is several levels with mostly high end stores. Top floor seemed to be mostly some enticing looking fine dining. But there's a good food court... More

The food court is an unexpected find for those on a budget. We had delicious and huge $10 lunches at Panda Express (Chinese) and $13 pizza's. The food court setting is also very pleasant, in a covered outdoor setting, clean and has a great atmosphere.

All the high end shopping experiences you could want are under one long three storied shopping building. The place is alive with shoppers from early morning till 11PM. The choices of food in the food court is very good and always busy.People are shopping, eating and browsing at All hours.

Went to eat here a few times and found the found the food very good and reasonably priced.we bought a huge pizza for $13 and couldnt eat it all huge variations of foods in the food court.. Most of the shops were empty and so we walked around and enjoyed the gardens and loved the torches down the streets.

Went here late afternoon on a Monday. Ate at The Cheesecake Factory and then walked off the calories by visiting several stores including Crazy shirts and Honolulu ookie company.

It is a great place to walk around at night. I really enjoyed the tiki torches, the beautiful plants, water features, terraced restaurants and expensive shops and boutiques. Even if you don't want to shop there, it is worth walking around to enjoy the ambience.
