Food options covered a good variety and were tasty. One of our party has severe food allergies and they accommodated these excellently, actually cooking a separate meal for her. Couldn't ask better. Plenty of entertainment for kids and character interaction was excellent.

While no one should expect 5 star dining from a buffet, the food was pretty good, but very expensive for what you get. There was a decent selection from sushi to prime rib, and hot and cold crab legs, it really didn’t stand out against...More

If you come to Aulani, take one night just splurge on the dinner buffet. The cost is a bit crazy, but if you love crab and the most delicious fruit you'll ever eat, then it's worth it at least once! I've taken travel groups to...More

This is a busy place with an average buffet, expensive price, and lots of noise with all the activities going on. The two kids in our party were not interested in any of it since they'd dined with Disney characters elsewhere. I wouldn't go again.

To start, this has to be among the best dinner buffets that I've ever had. From the oysters to the sushi and sashimi to the prime rib to the salmon (which was probably my favorite entree) to the shrimp and salads to the desserts, this...More

Came for breakfast here after staying at Aulani last week. Might I say Goofys kitchen in Anaheim has better options but it might just be because its not in Hawaii and doesnt cater to Japanese guests as well. The characters and Aunty were so fun...More

Don't recall seeing any characters during dinner, only at breakfast. There is not a show either, but there is live music in the bar next door, and everything this open so if the music has started you should be able to hear... More
