If you would like a place to eat in Waikiki with a relaxed atmosphere this place is great. Food selection is numerous and delicious and the service is excellent. It might be a bit pricey and they do give a discount for local residences. Next to it is an open bar with live music. I recommend this place if you... More

Convenient breakfast for those with early morning scheduled tours. Options are sufficient, especially the continental breakfast. Waitstaff very polite, service-oriented and efficient. This place fills up very quickly especially towards the weekend.

I went here with a party of 10 on a Sunday where the price of the buffet is $60.00 per person. First off our server could not have been any better. It felt as if we were his only table. The table was cleared quickly and the drinks and water were refilled without having to ask. As for the buffet... More

The Kai Market appears to cater more to Asian breakfast, with only a small variety of choices for the American appetite. The food available was cooked well; however, it was very pricey, over $30 for the breakfast buffet (but then everything is expensive on Waikiki). The view was nice overlooking the pool at the Sheraton and sunsets from this area... More

The buffet breakfast was reasonable with a variety of choices. Having the juice in the bottles was annoying even though it looked good. The breakfast was included but we paid a high price for the room anyway, but we were hurried and asked whether we were leaving after eating a plate of food.

I ate at the buffet breakfast here while staying at the Sheraton. It was average. I would have preferred more choices e.g eggs benedict instead of just scrambled eggs. Even though the Western choices weren't wide, there were some good Asian options like congee and dumplings. It's okay, but I found better breakfast options in Waikiki so probably wouldn't return....

The breakfast buffet was delicious with so much to choose from. They had the classics, eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, cereal, bagels, and toast. But they also have bread pudding, an omelet station, fresh fruit, yogurt, and a station with Asian items like won ton soup and shumai which were delicious. The service was great, but like I said it was... More

Another reviewer hit the nail on the head and I wish I had taken her advice. The Kai is way overpriced for the quality of the food. It is amazing to me how busy they were for such lousy food. The two main entrees were appalling. The prime rib was tough and had a rainbow hue to it and the... More
