Great food. Loved the atmosphere. Definitely will go back.
Absolutely good ! Nice atmosphere, nice music and food, they should have a better dance floor tho, but really good place.
Great ambience with the rooftop, decor, and music but the food and service was so bad. Food tasted terrible and the waitress was rude.
Service was great. Avocado tacos were delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Mexican food.
Great waiter and waitress in training. Both very attentive and helpful with the menu.
The food was extremely bland. Zero taste. The only thing that had some actual flavor was the $2 chicken tacos and the avocado and quinoa salad. Which is funny because it’s just mixed greens. Table was great, server was fine. The food was trash and way over priced for the amount you get.
Walking it in through the back entrance (not from the elevator from the Main Street) is like walking into a bad concert venue.
Ambiance was awesome and service was great. I thought the food was pretty good but lacked a bit of kick!
The margharitas were excellent!
Great food, drinks and service for a decent price. Amazing atmosphere as well, make sure you check out the beautiful fire pits!
Service was excellent! Food was great!
Great service. Food was fine but not outstanding
Reservations showed as available, however 2 minutes prior to our reservation time, we got a call (while we were sitting in the waiting area) that it would be another 45 minutes to even be seated. Don't get your hopes up if you see available reservation times, it may mean nothing.
Very good food, hostess named Amber was the sweetest! Would defiantly come back!
Food was terrible. Service terrible. I will not be going back.
Happy hour was very limited and not very good. Drinks were not great. Disappointed
Nice little place. Sat at the bar. Food was great. Bartender was a little overwhelmed or maybe just not a multi taster. Drinks were ok. Food was really good. It wasn’t like wow but we would return and maybe dinner hour would be better.
Service was excellent and enjoyed the rooftop vibe.
Chill vibes. Good food. Could play more latin genre music though.
Had stomach issues after eating the food there. Service was great but the food was okay. Need more enhancements with flavor . The dessert was a small portion. Needs bigger portion for the price
Great food and service. If I had to address 1 concern, I would note that our waiter suggested nachos and salsa while we figured out what we wanted to eat. I should have checked, so it is partly my fault, but I was surprised at the $15 charge for this on my bill. $5 for the chips and salsa and another $10 for the guacamole!! Had I known, I would not have taken the guacamole. It was very good but not worth the surcharge.
Aside from that, excellent evening and service and it was a great Valentine’s Day dinner.
The place was amazing and the food was delicious! Music was great!
Service appalling, food basic, overpriced. Worst meal and experience we have had while in Hawaii over 5 different trips. How does this place stay open?
Buho is an open air restaurant located on the roof!! It has a great vibe and energy smack in the middle of Waikiki. The food was great with ample portion sizes and the staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would highly recommend Buho to anyone looking for a fun night out!!
Very disappointing! Ate part of a burrito until I found a fine metal wire curled inside my burrito!!! Thank god I didn’t swallow it. Showed it to a manager and she thought it was a bristle from a brush...what???? Promptly left without finishing our meals. Will never return.
The drinks were very good, food was not bad either but i have had better. It was waaay too dark for my personal preference. Music was fun
Chicken tacos were Very taste. Chips and salsa are not free. Happy hours is at the bar only. Overall I would go again.
Best Mexican cuisine on the island! Great atmosphere and friendly service. Hidden gem that I will be going back to.
Very busy as we went on Taco Tuesday, but the atmosphere was amazing. Staff were friendly. We opted for the $2 tacos which was good value but they lacked in flavour and my partner had to go wait in line for them for around 30 minutes. This really took away from the experience as I sat at the table alone during this time and he was in a queue. Would have been just as easy for staff to send dockets to someone at the cart and have them brought to the table. In my opinion this would have dramatically increased the enjoyment of the evening. Also tacos needed more flavour. I know they were only $2 each but either do something well or not at all...
Easily fit a group of 12, and the tequila tasting was great
Went out to celebrate a friend with 6 of us total. We’re running late for our reservation and they had no issue with us switching the time. When we arrived, half of our party wasn’t there yet but we were still seated. Our waiter was very kind and helpful. We ordered drinks while we waited for our party to arrive. After ordering our food, we waited about 15 minutes for everyone’s meals to be brought out. Food was good, a little on the dry side for me. Ordered the shrimp chimichanga. Someone in our party asked for a side of salsa and ended up being charged an extra $3 for a little cup. Drinks were expensive, food price was what you would expect at this type of restaurant, but overall it was a great experience. Ambience was nice, view was cool, and honestly it was a good place to eat. Very casual and fun, will be going here again. I would recommend this place.
The location and ambiance was absolutely perfect. It was a bit pricey; no complimentary chips and salsa, but other than that, it was wonderful!
Enjoyed dinner on the rooftop with husband and teenage son. We enjoyed the service and food. I would recommend this place to to others.
2pm on a Sunday. Great time for quiet rooftop dining.
Attentive Service, no blaring football game (no tvs, yay),
Delicious interesting options (vegetarian quinoa Chile relleno! Yum.
Food was good but service a bit slow.
After a week of good Hawaiian food I was Looking forward to good Mexican food and margaritas.... the waitress was good but when we asked for a Margarita with my favorite tequila and Grand Marnier, I watched the new bartender make the drinks and he used a cheap tequila and triple sec. The Margarito was pale and tasteless and was not what I ordered. When I complained and told the waitress that he did not use what I asked for the waitress talked to the bartender and the bartender lied and said that he used the tequila and Grand Marnier which he did not do. I watched and he finally used what I asked for however they charged us $25 for each of our margaritas!. I would never set foot in this restaurant unless the manager has assured you that the bartender has been fired.
The staff here aren’t friendly or inviting. Some stuff I ordered I had to order twice because they forgot to ring it in. I would recommend this place for happy hour food. Otherwise don’t bother
Food was amazing!
Was a great day to eat lunch there at 2pm because almost had the place to ourselves and the waiter was fast and awesome. Food was great too had the relleno and kale wrap. Both were delicious.
Great food, great atmosphere, and even better drinks
