Great spot for grandparents to take the keiki after the Disney morning movie. Second time at the Diner but first time at this one. Good variety of local and mainland dishes.

We walked over to Ward Center from the Ilikai Hotel (about 30 min walk). They are on Week #3 of their standard menu specials. We chose the Asian Fish which was very good. Topped it off with the Big Sundae. All very good.

Food was awesome and large portions (as expected in the US!); customer service was great - we had a toddler and they were good in ensuring the drink came in a kid friendly cup etc.

My wife and I decided to go to Big City Diner before we go into Waikiki for Halloween. There was no one there and Matt C was our server. He was dressed up as Mario brother. All the staff was dressed up and very festive....More
