We went to the Ward Center to see what is was all about. Had no trouble getting to and from the Ward Center as there is a TheBus stop out the front in Ala Moana Boulevarde.(ask the driver where to get off) We always find a bargain at the Nordstrom Rack store. That being said I do prefer Macy's at... More

The food was down home USA. Burgers, salads, great choices and great service. Service like the good old days. A pleasure to be served by great staff and the food well YUM is all I can say and the portions are generous. Old style deli feel and lots of atmosphere. 10 out of 10.

We spent more at this centre than other complexes nearby because the shops were so much better. Smaller, more individual style stores than the Ala Moana and better value for money.

We've enjoyed exploring the stored in the Ward Center in the past, but this time, a lot of the stores seemed to have closed (including our favorite Hula Dog hotdogs!!!) or be struggling. It was sad to see. I hope things pick up for the retailers soon.

Visited for the first time to go for dinner in December 2013. Took a cab since trolley wouldn't be great at night. Really awkward to get to. On the way to the ala Moana shopping center. Have shops, restaurants, and theatres. Actually only close theatres near Waikiki area.

Even though its only a block or so away from Ala Moana Center, this can be awkward to get to without local knowledge. Twice we've ended up walking back to AlaMoana shopping centre to get a cab back to Waikiki. Cabs don't frequent this area and we had no idea on public transport. The shops are scattered about and there... More

Great for shopping if you knew where to go. It's shops spread out over a couple of streets which confused us. Google maps will be your friend! TJ Maxx is brilliant for young female clothing/bags. It has a much better Nordstrom at the Ward Centre than Ala Moana for the fact it has clearance racks with cheaper prices.

I had heard good things about this place but unfortunately was disappointed and would not go back there. TJ Maxx was good and would be the only reason to go there. Famous Footwear is also there (which is great) however it’s also at Ala Moana. The five ‘centres’ are spread out so much it was approx. 15-20min walk to get... More

I loved this mall for the fact that is wasn't a huge mall with no character that you could see anywhere USA. I enjoyed Nohea Gallery and various specialty shops. I didn't even make it to all the shops. We stumbled upon an awesome Japanese Dance Show. Followed by lunch at Old Spaghetti Factory. Perfect last day (it rained).

Ward Centre was our first morning shopping here mainly for the Rack, TJ Max, Ross and other shops that we came across in between Got Birkenstocks at famous footwear, lunch at Genki Sushi and generally enjoyed the morning looking at some boutique shops
