Our first experience at this restaurant was great. Incredible food and service... so much so we planned a day to go back 4 days later. That day I looked on Tripadvisor and read some of the reviews that were bad. Thought "Boy, these must be complete whingers". That night I saw first-hand why the reviews were such as they were....

Huge selection of food. Food is always fresh as they pump through 4-500 people per sitting. Polynesian show is worth the dinner cost alone, making the food free.

I would like to point out that I have never written a restaurant review before, however my recent experience at Makittii is worth writing about. I went there for dinner with my dad tonight as there is always a long line out front...DO NOT BE DECEIVED. This place is a dump to say the least. The food at the buffet... More

This place was terrible from the start. We were not greeted when we entered the restaurant and when we approached staff they were too busy chatting and sent us to wait for other staff, who were also busy just chatting. The food was worse than the service. The buffet was old and definitely not up to health and safely standards... More

We went to Makittii on recommendation from our hotel but found the buffet just average. The fire show and dancers were great however and we enjoyed our evening.

Highly recommend this restaurant. It is great value for money and we had some of the nicest food in Waikiki here. This is a buffet restaurant with a Polynesian floor show. There were signs outside the restaurant saying all you can eat steak and lobster for 19.98. I was surprised you could get lobster and steak for that price and... More

There is a lot of bad food in Waikiki, this is one of them. However, the servers were fantastic and they did try to do a nice little show during dinner.

Not only was the show great, but lobster, steak and shrimp, along with other very good dishes, make this buffet style restaurant a gem! Used the coupon in the Big Island week mag for a discount, making this the best value we found on the island! Highly recommend it! Don't be put off by the way the outside looks, it's... More

temporarily I live in Hawaii and I visited this restaurant last week with my workmates, only 19.99 USD for whole seafood buffet seemed awesome. *you can add options for lobster and uni (sea urchin) sushi buffet for extra $. Despite of old reviews, the inside looked quite clean, and organized. When I saw the entrance, it seemed kinda medium-sized restaurant... More

I enjoyed Makitti. Was it the best food I had in Waikiki? Certainly not; however, for the low price the taste and amount of food was a good bargain. I really enjoyed the Ring of Fire show, especially the fire dancers. The singer/emcee was talented and friendly, explaining the show to the audience in a fun way. There was plenty... More
