We came to Hawaii on our honeymoon and I was craving Ahi which we had at a nice over priced dinner at House Without a Key last night, but tonight we decided to eat at our hotel, Sheraton Waikiki, at the Kai Market for their Friday night seafood buffet. Hands down the best seafood buffet I've ever been to and... More

Kai Market is the restaurant on the bottom floor of the Sheraton Waikiki. The dinner is always buffet style and runs about $55 for an adult (kama aina discount is 25%, kids are also much cheaper and little ones under 3 are free). The dinner buffet is amazing with wonderful poke, salads, soup and a huge variety of hot dishes.... More

Kai Market is awesome. Locally-sourced ingredients and attention to freshness and variety. Sometimes the quality of their meats leaves something to be desired, but everything else is usually awesome. Prices are high, but it IS a buffet and in line with Waikiki buffet prices if you want good food and all you can eat. Also great location, right by the... More

We liked this buffet was very fresh some Hawaiian dishes, ambianse was very nice. Is recommended to make reservations it was a long line before restaurant open. I believe you should try to go Friday or Saturday cause they have the seafood and it would be a crime to pay 58 dollars for regular food buffet. The crab were delicious... More

We had the dinner buffet here and it was great! All the entrees were pretty and always filled. The fresh steamed fish was delicious and the prime rib was tender. The Molokai sweet potato was yummy as well. The salad bar had a great mix...the fruit filled cole slaw was unusual and refreshing, loved the pineapple in it. The dessert... More

Great selection of seafood, salads and desserts. They also,have prime rib. Best rate offered if you stay at Sheraton, you get a nice discount otherwise you pay a much higher rate, which is about $70 dinner buffet and $32 or $42 for breakfast buffet

Breakfast at Kai Market was included in the hotel stay (Sheraton Waikiki). The Buffet had a good selection of warm and cold breakfast items. Toaster to cook your own choice of bread. Service was friendly and the views were fantastic.

The markets are good but I found them to be lots of the same stalls, mostly trinkets, clothes, Bags T,/shirts , ornaments, shells, and stalls that try and sell you wrinkle creams, you cannot get a way from them, don't take no for a answer. They open in the mornings and close late at night. The prices are much cheaper... More

We traveled with Globus (awesome tour, btw) and spent a few nights in the Sheraton Waikiki. As such, breakfast at the Kai Market was a simple pleasure. Buffet breakfast and an amazing view of Waikiki and Diamondhead...what could be better? Fresh fruit, grains and eggs all available, as are a few juice choices and coffee.

We ate breakfast here almost daily on our stay at the Sheraton Waikiki. Slightly pricey, but the food was of good quality, and lots of it. We did find, however, that a few "basic" items that you'd expect at a buffet were missing - namely Strawberry jelly (which I did discover a few days in that you could ask for... More
