Their Decaf was too too dark, bad taste this time, I had never had such bitter coffee.
We had Chef’s tasting dinner and Prix Fixe. I ordered Decaf for my desert, but it was terrible taste.
I sip it, then I couldn’t sip anymore. It ruined all my dinner😖. I was very disappointed.

Unfortunately our experience was not as excellent as it has been in the past. The food was over salted and the wait staff seemed to be less interested in our needs when we declined to order any wine. I was overall very disappointed with our experience.

Our meal was a five course pre-fixe so I think that’s why our food was not hot when it was served. That was our biggest disappointment with our meal. The food was creative but we were not blown away by the taste. We expected more from Hoku’s.

テーブルについてくれた女性の方が、母のリクエストに応えてくれて、メニューには無かったレモンスカッシュをつくって供してくれました。この自律的なサービスに感激しました。
コスパは決して良くはないが、人でもっている老舗という印象。

Hats off to Chef Wayne and his staff for continually providing the same great taste year after year. We've never been just OK with the food at Hoku's buffet, it's always been a food lovers delight. Service was exceptional, price...well, because of the great food and service, I have no complaint.

Well done Chef Wayne. Keep up the great work and great atmosphere of Hoku's.

味、サービスはさすが一流だった。
ただ、値段も一流に高く、前回、利用した時よりも価格が高くなっている感がした。
メニュー以上の料金が必要なので注意です。
やはり、特別な時しか利用できないですね。

The food was incredible, especially the seafood tower appetizer. The only negative aspect was the table next to us was rather loud and boisterous. It made the conversation at our table hard to hear at times.

We had a nice table but unfortunately a large party was seated next to us and one of the individuals appeared to be a little tipsy so he kept leaning over his friends and sticking his butt in our faces...it was quite annoying. We don’t blame Hoku’s for this but just wish that people would mind their manners and be more considerate of other patrons.

It was our second trip to Hoku’s and the food was spectacular once again. It was my husband’s birthday and they brought out a nice complementary birthday dessert for him. Service was great and the food is incredible. My favorite on Oahu!

For the New Years Breakfast Buffet. Food was completely disappointing as it was only a Breakfast Buffet not a Brunch Buffet, even though we were charged for a similar price to the Brunch price. Very basic breakfast foods, none of the usual special Hoku’s dishes like the almond butter croissants or ahi musubi’s were not offered. Very underwhelming. Honestly if I’d known that the menu would be so limited I wouldn’t have eaten there. The food offered was closer to what you’d see at Denny’s except that they charged nearly $70/person.

NYE dinner at Hoku’s was very memorable for these visitors from San Francisco. The six-course menu was just scrumptious. But the best thing was having Lisa as our server. She remembered us from a year ago when we also dined at Hoku’s for our anniversary. What a wonderful night spent with our ohana. And thank you to Wes, the manager who was amazing in handling a delicate situation regarding the noise level. We will be back. Mahalo and much aloha!

What gives with the dress code? I saw at least 10 people in T-shirts, another 4 in shorts. Lost count of the number of feet encased in beach slippers. One table had 5 guys in white t-shirts with one of them wearing a baseball cap. Dressier at Zippy’s. Really takes away from the ambience.
