Good food. Very expensive.

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

Kai Market is onsite restaurant of Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. The restaurant is located next to its Infinity Pool (for Adults only) so the ocean view from the restaurant is amazing. They serves seafood buffet for dinner, great for family too.

The breakfast buffet was really good. We had this everyday as our room included the breakfast package. This buffet had everything you'd want for breakfast the omelette station, breads, pastries, rice, congee, fresh fruits and meat of the day. We went here with friends with children and the buffet was a hit with the family. For dinner the options that... More

The breakfast buffet is good but very expensive for the selection. But the ala carte prices are almost as much as the buffet so it is better to get the buffet. Eggs and omelets made to order are well done. The fresh fruit is good as well.

The Prime Rib was soooooo ONO, and as far as my husband if you ask him, he'll say Crab, Crab, Crab. Oh and did I mention, CRAB! The other foods in the buffet line was also great, but i'm more of a dessert person. I can tell you this much, we both were full to our stomachs. Does that help?... More

Had breakfasts at this restaurant during my stay in Sheraton Waikiki. Food selection was not very extensive; though the omelette station is quite great. You get to pick what's inside your omelette in a small bowl before the chef cooks the omelette for you. This place would be ordinary without the view and ocean breeze.

Typical American buffet breakfast - nice. Nice view too! Not too crowded with friendly service. Open early and easy to get a table.

We were here as part of a travel tour [none of the five "What sort of visit was this?" are appropriate] This is a slightly upscale standard buffet. I enjoy the small Japanese addition because I like the pickled vegetables, congee, and natto (an acquired taste). Bacon was crispy, scrambled eggs slightly watery. Home fries (strings) were crispy and less... More
