I would say this has to be the best buffet in Waikiki. Starting from the beautiful view to the amazing selection of food. There is something for everyone here and the crab legs are awesome! The desert bar was great and the service is fantastic.

The "All you can eat buffet" is a literal feast on the night you go to Kai Market at the Sheraton Waikiki. For $59 per head you get a range of dishes to choose from - and keep going back for! There's a sushi bar, a meat carving station, fresh crab legs, fresh grilled prawns, local Hawaiian dishes, Chinese dishes... More

Excellent service in the Kai Market! Staff has been the same for years! Great choices for breakfast and even though we arrived just in time for the cut off of service in the morning, all were very accommodating and even gave us "to go" coffee cups! Quite expensive but average for a buffet service! Excellent food with an omelet station... More

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.

Thank loveholidays11
