We had a wonderful time, our server was delightful and helpful. The manager was also very involved as well.
We will be back for sure!
The best seafood in town! Beautiful restaurant. Wonderful service!!!
Great spicy crab and shrimp in a casual, informal setting. The jalapeño bacon cornbread side was especially good. Lots of roasted corn in it.
What a treat for our whole party! Bountiful crab and shellfish, and tasty sides. John was welcoming and the staff very attentive. Our favorite on the island.
The entire experience was great. The scenery was beautiful and the service we received was beyond exceptional.
Best place for king crab on Ohau. The Katie Special seasoning is a must.
We were glad to have tried Karai Crab as it was very highly rated. The crab was spicy and delicious, and we were very pleasantly surprised at how good the garlic noodles were. I can eat that over and over... thanks!
Very good service and delicious food.
Upon reading the reviews of outstanding customer service and great food, thought we should check out what we've been missing. A Valentine's Day dinner was planned with a reservation made. Arriving 30 minutes before reservation, we were greeted with courtesy and was seated immediately. The food was absolutely delicious. The portions were huge so we had some to bring home. The management/staff came around to see how things were going. The manager came out wishing us a Happy Valentine's Day and gave us a small gift. This was indeed a perfect night out, being treated with the utmost courtesy and enjoying a fabulous meal. I would recommend Karai Crab to anyone and will definitely return soon.
Karai Crab was great fun. The menu is limited but everything was really delicious. Part of the fun was eating shellfish with our fingers...wearing a bib but still making a mess. Service was excellent. The ambiance was basic.
I celebrated in Hawaii for my Birthday. I lucked up and found this restaurant and made a reservation. The people were pleasant and attentive. The host even recognized it was my birthday, but I think my man had something to do with that. We sat outside by the water and it was amazing. The food, the water and the people that was visiting from all parts of the world. I was in heaven!
Heads on ordering: Get the snow crab or King crab legs. The dungeness they bring you a Whole crab and you have to break it apart yourself.
Good as always!
Amazing food. Great waiter
Crab with Karai sauce. Chicken. Noodles. Heaven.
Free ice cream from Willows after! Service was a little slow to get seated, but food was great and they did check in frequently once we were seated.
Eating here was the bomb, will definitely come back
Karai Crab is a hidden gem with great food and friendly, attentive service.
Highly recommend! I love Karai Crab. We've been going to Karai Crab since we arrived to Hawaii in 2016 and the service and food is always top notch. We go a little more than once a quarter and the food and service is always great. Absolutely one of the best seafood places in Honolulu. I highly recommend this great place. It's also kid friendly.
The food was Ono! Definitely will go back to eat we had the combo with Kong Crab
This place is absolutely amazing!!! Great food, staff, and atmosphere! Sit outside and order the karai blend!
Wow. I was amazed and proud of myself to bring my girl friend to this restaurant. Try to get yourself outside seatings if it’s not too hot(I went for dinner so it wasn’t hot) The foods were good servers were friendly. I would definitely come back!
Awesome value, friendly service and incredible crab 🙌
Food was amazing. Got the combo with Karai special seasoning with cayenne spiciness. Loved it.
Tasty seafood. We got the Karai special seasoning, which was really good, but got salty after eating the whole bowl of seafood. Still highly recommend because it was so delicious and reasonably priced. Eating crab was messy as expected, but they provided bibs. Service was great, and they let us get free ice cream at the buffet after we finished eating!
Great food and service
This place is always awesome every time we've gone there with her it's just for two people for 10 food is awesome, the service is fantastic, and the people are so friendly.
Anytime I want to eat crab I will go here.
Great atmosphere and great service. We will be back again.
Ask for outdoor seating if you prefer fresh air and a surrounding of plants, ponds, and scenery other than a white wall. I did not annotate that in the notes and there wasn't any room for outside seating once we got there.
This restaurant is small and a bit off the beaten path, but if you like crab, you can't go wrong. We had both Dungeness and King, and a couple sides, everything was great.
Friendly and excellent servers. It's hands-on eating, quite messy and you'll be going through a lot of napkins. Servers are great at clearing out crustacean shells and used napkins while eating. Always making sure all is well at your table. If you love seafood, you'll love the different seasonings they offer. My favorite is the garlic butter and lemon grass flavors. The miso steam clams are a great hit. The restaurant is small and quite popular, so I recommend making reservations.
This was out last night in Hawaii and we are so glad we booked here . Fantastic food great service and lovely people thank you
Food was tasty in a salty and spicy way. Server was friendly, informative, and patient. Wish we had a choice of fruits or ice cream for desert. Valet parking right across the street was an unnecessary added cost.
Try the snow crab -- it's the perfect saltiness with natural sweet. Steamed to perfection.
Great menu. Friendly and attentive service. Creative and cozy surroundings. Will definitely be back.
It was a wonderful first time experience for all of us. Great wonderful tasting food. The service was awesome, they guys were tentative.. even when it rained, they wanted to make sure we were okay. The price was 👍... a great hidden gem in the middle of Moilili.
Great taste, Impressive food, Kind staff, Wonderful experience.
We were deceived with our initial entrance but was lead outside to a much larger, enjoyable atmosphere. When they say the food is spicy, believe it! We enjoyed it so much, we are planning to return before we leave.
The service was awesome! The entire staff was very friendly and prompt. Couldn’t have been happier with our experience!
