  • In the heart of Waikiki, staff is helpful. Hula show began in a shop on the way so who watched him break even. To the sound of the ukulele and the lovely Hula dancers who could also find.

  • Arrived, now go to the Royal Hawaiian Center. Favorite shaved ice shop where to buy ice and Eat Acai Bowl at Island vintage coffee. I think it's Hawaii. There are many Japanese basically.

  • ​Aloha​... We would like to address a negative situation that we had at the food court several weeks ago. As locals, we sometimes venture into WAIKIKI for excitement and to try some new places to eat - in spite of the terrible parking and crowds. Well, in summary. the ____________ restauraunt served us some of the worst meat ever - was tough and too raw to eat. But as locals, we rarely complain on the spot as we do not like to confront people directly - too embarrassing and really do not want to wreck the overall day based on one experience. However, since we work hard for our dollars in Hawaii, I thought it over and decided to call them back to give them my constructive opinion. A manager at the restaurant understood and agreed that the situation does occur often due to their many challenges in keeping the meat warm and still tender. He offered a remake on both our dinners which was about $28 in total - if we came back again. A call to their number (to make sure ____ was working) later revealed that they had closed down as we got in touch with the ROYAL HAWAIIAN customer rep by the name of CAROL ULEP (we called the ROYAL in question of why no one answered their number anymore and CAROL told me they closed). Now here is the BEST part of our experience. When we called up the ROYAL, Carol was SO KIND and truly willing to listen to our complaint. If we had called any other company, they would have just told us they closed down and sorry - I am sure you can relate to this trite and common answer. Carol went on to say that she would try and call them up to see what management would do for us. Now that is what I call really caring. The easy way out (which is common nowadays is to simply say. "sorry, we are sad to hear this happened to you" - common line for bad service or poor product. Carol went on to say that she would call us back to let us know what could be done. WOW! Well, several hours later CAROL actually called me back and offered a resolve. Now that is really a demonstration of a class act and sincere about helping make a bad situation turn into a great one. Carol was truly so kind and sincere as well as empathetic from the beginning when she first first picked up the phone to the final resolve was such a refreshing experience - believe me, this is not common in our stressed out, crowded Hawaii. I just wanted to leave a note to management of the ROYAL HAWAIIAN SHOPPING CENTER to recognize this type of talent which truly represents the ALOHA our state needs to have back again - and it is not easy with the new breed of tourists nowadays. Big Mahalo! Paul Goo
  • Hidg end shops are expensive but interesting to window shop. Inexpensive food on Waikiki hidden here in the food court.
  • Centrally located and with lots of parking. This is my default Waikiki parking garage. Try the Japanese cheesecake from Uncle Tetsu's and grab a coffee from Island Vintage
  • It is an alright place for locals with some surf/skate shops to shop around. There are a lot of boutiques for tourists. It isn't as great as Ala Moana Mall. If you're local, don't forget to show your state ID/ DL for an up to 20% off your meal at the food court.
  • For a teacher of ukulele (in the regural event for tourists?), she was so rude. She still makes me upset, whenever I think about the center. As I didn't know about how the free class goes, so I arrived there after the class was full. I asked to the clerk whether I could watch the class for a while, and she allowed it. I standed in the back corner of the room, which is far away from the last seat of the class. The teacher came to the back on purpose, and said to the clerk that the bag (my small hobo bag on the ground) could make her tipped over, pointing with her foot! And she didn't watch me at all, and I could feel that she were ignoring me on purpose. I was embarrassing, cause she came NICELY to the back corner to say that. There were nobody in the back, I believe, she didn't need to come to the end while she were teaching. Maybe she just didn't like me. But for attitude? I think the Royal hawaiian center should reconsider about their lecturers in the free class.
