This wonderful cafe is hidden away at the west end of the otherwise unremarkable Ward Centre mall. It doesn't look much from the outside but the menu is interesting, the quality is excellent and the portions are generous. I've eaten here several times over the last few years and never been disappointed.

While I was shopping in the Ward Warehouse area, I stopped in to try Kakaako Kitchen. I had the What the Pho Dip. The name was hilarious and the sandwich was a combination of a French Dip and a Philly Cheesesteak on a taro roll with a pho dip. It was the best sandwich. Their entire menu looked really good....

My wife used to come here often over a decade ago when she lived in Honolulu, and she was pleased that the quality and taste have been maintained. She had the calamari salad; it was tasty and firm, not chewy like ill-prepared calamari in other places. I had the mahi-mahi sandwich and it was a large moist and tasty filet... More

Luckily they are starting to deliver for such large such orders which totally saved me from trying to schlep it through a building!! Food arrived on time and at the perfect temp with napkins, plastic-ware and ketchup (it was even labeled with... More

For delicious local food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, check out Kakaako Kitchen at Ward Center. Offering a wide variety of entrees and salads, you can find something for everyone here. Service is fast and friendly, and the food is great! Also try their scrumptious desserts! My favorite is the lemon bar! If you need a quick bite to eat... More

We ere given a delivery time which was pretty accurate, unfortunately the food was just mildly warm and there wasn't any forks, knife, salt, pepper and 2 napkins. When I called back to let them know that the meal was delivered without the... More

Study the menu before you go or you'll be standing looking up at the menu board too long trying to decide what to order at the cash register. One of our favorites is the tempura catfish. It stays delicious even as takeout to eat at home.
