ロイヤルハワイアンセンターC館内にあるビュッフェレストランです。ツアーに無料クーポンが付いていたので、ランチ時に伺いました。開店時間少し前に着いたのですが、後から来たお客さんをどんどん先に案内したり、適当な接客で困惑しました。 食べ放題の内容は、揚げ物・寿司・ハンバーグ・ケーキなど種類は豊富でしたが、味はいまいちでしたね。 会計時に、クーポンを見せると注文時に見せないと受付ないとウエイターさんが怒り出してしまいました。一応上司に確認すると言ったまま完全放置されること30分以上。何度か他の店員さんも含めて状況を聞くも、「私は担当ではないから知りません!!」と嫌な顔をされます。。。時間がもったいないので、1時間以上過ぎたころ、クーポンを利用しなくていいので、現金で支払う旨をこちらから伝えると、もう上司からOK出てますからと言われました。散々確認した時は知らないと言っていましたし、一言伝えに来て欲しかったです。日本と違いハワイがのんびりしているといっても、他の国でもこんな酷い接客を受けたことが無かったので衝撃でした。終始感じが悪かったです。無料でも二度と行きたくないです!!

At $19 per person, the lunch buffet at Five Star is outstanding. The name says it all: it is international in flavor and presentation. They have even included some things for the kids, like macaroni and cheese. There is an array of sushi, salads, desserts,...More

A Japanese man in a suit bumped into my wife's purse and unzipped her purse to pickpocket it. Then he bumped into me and left empty-handed.

Everything is overpriced in Hawaii, so finding good food at a reasonable price is rare. Just spent 2 weeks on Oahu and this place had a real nice variety (about 50 items) and the lunch buffet only cost $19. Most foods had a bit of...More
