My wife and I had breakfast here most mornings at an outside table overlooking the Ocean and Infinity Pool. The Waiters who are mostly older citizens are attentive, enthusiastic, informative and generally lovely. (especially Martha) The Buffet is extensive and continually restocked with hot and cold food. There is a wide array of fresh fruit with the best pineapple and... More

There is nothing to want for breakfast. What an omelette you can get here. Nice choices of fruit, and a beautiful view to see the ocean . Dinner buffet had great selection of seafood.

We ate here almost everyday on our honeymoon. The breakfast buffet was awesome and always so clean. My husband loved the banana caramel sauce on his waffles.

First of all, my husband and I visited Oahu in December 2013. We ate all but one of our breakfasts here at the Kai Market and that is the reason why we came back and decided that this time, we are staying at the Sheraton Waikiki. The first 3 nights we had dinner at the Kai Market buffet. The food... More

Go without eating the whole day to feast at this place at night. Crab, shrimp, poke over everything, and lomi salmon-ahi launch an outer-body experience. Then canoe surf right outside where you join 5 others on a wave for 500 yards, ending up almost back into the restaurant, literally. I could smell the kalua pig from the canoe, or was... More

Had several breakfasts and the seafood dinner at this buffet. The food was very good with lots of choices. The breakfast buffet varied little from day to day, but with such variety, it didn't matter much. These meals were included in our travel package, but are quite expensive on their own. You would have to eat a great deal to... More

The food in the Kai Market is delicious, granted I only ate breakfast there but there was such an array of assorted food that you could fill up on breakfast and skip lunch all together. There was always enough food and variety which was great.

Went on a Friday night (Seafood item night) with my husband and in-laws to celebrate both of our anniversaries. It was, once again, a wonderful, bountiful, delicious, and overwhelming farm to table buffet offering. We had Walter as our waiter. He was so gracious just like our last experience. So.....I'd feel comfortable is saying that they have consistent service with... More

Aside from the staff being a little standoffish because we where from another hotel, the breakfast was truly amaze!!! My wife say eggs benedict was the best ever.
