It was awesome for mom and me. Due to lack of the time, we couldn’t visit many good local places to eat like kahuku, poke, bakery and so on. However, we could taste all best dishes at Kai market. They provided fresh local food and it was really delicious!! You should come to eat crab from Fri to Sun.

For kamaainas the price is very reasonable for the buffet of crab legs and prime rib with lots of salads, sashimi and many desserts too.

The crabs are probably the only thing worth coming for. However, you have to ask politely for the guy serving them to give you more than 3 pieces at a time. I was expecting more variety in foods and the sashimi looked bad so I didn’t bother eating that or the poke. Overall, we were able to make reservations easily and the waiters were nice. We went for our anniversary dinner. They gave us a nice little dessert.

My second time there and I love it. Food is Ono.
Service is persistent. Didn't have to wait long to be seated at a table for 5.
I would recommend Kai Market to friends and family.. Well worth the money..

Living on island for 5 years and we finally tried the dinner buffet since we had guest visiting from the mainland. We had a party of seven with reservations and received the kamaaina discount. The food was very onolicious and they also had a variety items to choose from. The dinner roll is the best carbs to have. You don't even need butter to eat it. Our server Walter was outstanding with excellent service. He always made sure our drinks were refilled and made sure dirty plates was taken off the table and newly utensils replaced. The sunset view is awesome, along with live music you can hear from the outside bar area. We will be returning to this place for sure and to also try their breakfast buffet. Mahalo!

Kamainas get 25 percent off the usual rate of$60 per person, making it A very good deal. No oysters though. King crab legs but they are room temperature and somewhat dry so not that good. On the other hand, unless the crab legs are served chilled, everyone else's is also the same somewhat dry and room temperature which is never very good. Decent roll sushi but no Nigri. Good prime rib. Good salt and pepper prawns. Good onaga. Very good mochi. Not the best buffet on Oahu but very good for the price.

Kai Market offers an extensive choice of quality items on their extensive buffet. Quality of the food has been consistent and we enjoy it for the variety it offers. The crab legs however, are difficult to clean which makes it feel wasteful. In terms of service, we have had better service in the past. This past visit service was slower and we had to remind our server about our requests. In terms of ambience, the setting is beautiful however it is warm. Overall, it’s our choice of a place to celebrate special occasions with family and visitors.

シーフードブッフェに期待してましたが、思ったよりイマイチでした。蟹はパサパサ。。。
品数は一定あったが、これが美味しいと思えるものがほぼない。
シェラトン内で配っているクーポンブックで割引があるのはよかった。

Somehow it wasn’t a real treat like it has been in years past. Maybe we just picked the wrong night with an average selection but we didn’t walk out looking forward to our next visit like we usually do.

全て良かったですが、キッズ用メニュー(ロコモコやポテト)も広がると、客層にも合って尚良いと思いました。
但し、キッズ用の容器があった点は評価します。

Who would not like views of the water while enjoying a great buffet-the Music was nice but hard to hear and see the dancers-better acoustics sitting on the other side of the bar in front of the pool:)

Food was good, but it was hot in there when its crowded. The heat distracted us from enjoying the food. I guess because it's open to the outdoor area the AC wasn't holding in there. Waiter could of been more considerate regarding our bill. We had a big party, over 40 ppl and he made it all on one bill. He could of split by at least the 3 tables we had to make it easier for us. He wasn't being helpful in figuring our bill per person either. We took over 40 mins just to split the bill and collect payment from everyone.

Seems the food was not as tasty as in the past. Disappointed only 3 kinds of sushi, regular maki, inari and small California roll with the orange fish eggs on the outside. No nigiri sushi. Seafood chowder was delicious. Clams my favorite.

Great views of sunset! Thats the reason why we choose this restaurant and were not disappointed. Views were amazing. Staff was helpful and friendly. Through their knows about the buffet and menu was not good, I asked about some kids dishes to staff who bought us to table and she mentioned I don’t know (didn’t offered any alternatives or told us that she can check with supervisor etc). Food was good lot of meats and live counter of ox Tail soup was great. Overall we enjoyed the family dinner.

This review is for a weekend dinner.
Parking is a Sheraton Waikiki parking garage, free validation.
Kamaaina discount.
Kai Market has indoor and outdoor seating with live Hawaiian music and a hula dancer.
Fast and friendly service, ice tea, coffee, tea included with buffet.
Food - salad area included poke and ahi sashimi, bread with cheese area, seafood chower, entree area has steamed fish (opakapaka), king crab legs, laulau, roast beef, braised short ribs, Kauai shimp, clams and other items, dessert area included mochi, Ted Bakery pies, ice cream, and assortment of hotel made items. I would have to say lots of food to eat and select from.
