I love to travel and try different “new/unfamiliar foods” which are always tied to the long history of the place where I am so I searched for the good place in Honolulu to do the same. The restaurant has little pond by the tables and a water fall which greeted me as soon as I entered. The Willows was such... More

It is hard to believe that this restaurant is located on one acre... it feels so much larger. A chapel, ponds, several dining areas and the tropical grounds allows you to forget that you are in the middle of a big city. We went for the lunch buffet on a weekday... the Willows offers a wide assortment of foods to... More

Our gathering was unfortunately on the day of the torrential rain fall, it was unfortunate the restaurant did nothing to prevent the wind blown rain from entering the open dining area. The croutons on the salad bar was soft and stale, not sure if this was due to the humidity. The laulau after removing the outer leaves, was about the... More

the buffet at the Willows had typical buffet food and will not list the menu. The seafood chowder was excellent. Their poke was only average at best.. All the snow crab you can eat, fresh, the exposed meat was not dry. The buffet items were always well stocked no problems of any food running out. Vallet parking mandatory across the... More

We had a small reunion with cousins coming back to visit with friends and we thought the buffet was very good. It was pretty quiet on a Thursday evening so they let us stay past the usual 2 hour dining slot, and with a little quiet music in the background it was perfect for catching up. They had all the...

Make sure you have an appetite when you go as there's a huge variety available and you'll want to try everything. They have local foods and some things like a roast beef carving station, crab legs and an omelette station.
