Make sure you have an appetite when you go as there's a huge variety available and you'll want to try everything. They have local foods and some things like a roast beef carving station, crab legs and an omelette station.

Very tasty local fare. $Pricey$ but worth it if you like this delicious buffet. From Prime Rib to Poke and Crab Legs to Kalua Pork. It's what we call ono grindz.

Nice Sunday brunch buffet focusing on local food. The food was good and plentiful. It's off the beaten path, but the inside courtyard dining area was nice.

My husband and I were taken to this amazing restaurant on June 27 with his business group. It is tucked into an area that would be easily overlooked and it has been a popular restaurant on the island for over 20 years. It is designed like a Polynesian village, mostly open aired, and features a delicious Hawaiian buffet offering Kahlua... More

Skip the luau and head to the Willows for an all-you-can-eat buffet of traditional Hawaiian food and more. You will enjoy the serene setting while eating lau lau, kahlua pork, chicken long rice, poi, poke, sushi, and much much more. You will not be disappointed. Lunch is less crowded but I don't know if the offerings are less compared to... More

First, the two most recent visits here were with large family groups. It's still a great place to go with a large party because of the private dining rooms. The food quality seems to have gone downhill since our prior visit two years ago. The neighborhood is getting more sketchy. Not somewhere you want to walk to and then have... More

They have lots of fresh fish and king crab legs. The price is at the pricy side for a buffet. But the quality is very good. Also, they have the pineapple ice cream from Dole along with strawberry flavor and vanilla flavor. Go with pineapple as it's simply the best! Only one steam veggie in the buffet. If there are...

We attended our daughter's Sorority Ball here, and they did a commendable job with a delicious buffet line for the party of about 80. They had kalua pork, baked Mahi Mahi in hawaiian sauce, great salads, and of course fried rice. The grounds are a pretty amazing garden setting in the midst of a local neighborhood not to far from...
