We enjoyed our family Christmas dinner! Was hesitant about driving into Waikiki over the holidays, but was truly worth it! We were lucky enough to be placed in the little room off to the side. Everyone enjoyed the variety of food - and because the food are made is smaller quantity, they are constantly replenishing the food -- so it's fresher! We were pleasantly surprise with the "Kamaaina Discount"!

The only 'confusing' part was the parking - because we aren't too familiar with the different hotels.

Great variety of food. The family really enjoyed the wide variety of food from sushi, to crab legs, stuffed lobster and while I am not much of a seafood eater there was a wide variety of "land" food as well, with chicken, pork, and prime rib. Mostly an Asian theme, with Italian and Hispanic flavors as well. Worth it.

Everytime I see a name like Luxury accommodation or Five Star International Buffet I quiver and tend to wonder how good is it going to be. In this case we were pleasantly surprised. Before we decided to sit down we went into the buffet area to see an enormous array of asian food and noticed that the food was being cooked as soon as the plates were emptied and most importantly a limited amount of food was being put out, which I thought was good, because we knew the food hadn`t been there all night. There was a great selection of food from soup to garlic prawns, chicken, beef, stir fry, sushi in which my wife loved, to desserts and a lovely selection of fruit and cakes which is all we wanted. There are cheaper places around in Waikiki but if you don`t want to eat burgers and fries which seems to be the diet here, this restaurant is good value.

Had lunch here for their $19 buffet. It reminded me of something you'd have in Las Vegas. The food was average at best, and had a Asian fusion influence. Patrons were mostly locals and Asian tourists. Menu had noodles, potato, pasta and sushi. Desserts were not spectacular or a strong point. Dinner buffet is offered for $48. Won't be returning as there's better value and choice in the Waikiki area.

We enjoyed this asian themed buffet for lunch and found everything fresh and delicious. The best deal in the Royal Hawaiin Plaza!
