I have eaten at this restaurant buffet for many years, most prior to Kai Market. Last year was excellent, food was good, no lines and great table service. Today, was the complete opposite, way too many guests for the buffet service. Cold station was excellent, Poki and Sashimi very good as were the salads. When it came to hot food,... More

The seafood buffet was excellent - a large and tasty selection. The service, however, was almost non-existent. We had to seek someone out when we needed something two times.

Kai Market is an upscale buffet located at the Sheraton Waikiki on Oahu. You can sit insider or you can sit outside with a view of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. The tiki bar next to it has entertainment at night that you can enjoy as well and many tables have a great view of the infinity pool. We ate... More

Great breakfast. Very expensive. The breakfast buffet with coffee for two people. $80. Only made this mistake once. There are many many other alternatives with good food for much much less.

I've been to quite a few buffets been to Vegas a few times...this one was fairly good. Crab was large and very good! Not watery at all! Nice favor with the garlicky dipping sauce, that I've never had before! They had beef short ribs, (melt in your mouth) prime rib, shojun(?) chicken, fish, fried rice, sushi, basic salad, crispy cooked... More

Potential to be rated 5. However, staff lacked professionalism for a Sheraton Waikiki restaurant. Lack of service, not friendly, not knowledgeable and no manager present. Ocean view setting, music, quality of food was excellent. Price a bit high for dinner. Ordered martini and it came without a martini glass and olives, served in an old fashion glass. Will try again... More
