I always eat Kaka`ako Kitchens shoyu chicken dish when I visit. The service is fairly quick and it is usually busy every time I visit.

KK has been a go to spot of mine for years. The food is always killer, service is super friendly and fast. Usually go for Shoyu/beef stew combo but decided to try ahi sandwich and didn't disappoint. Stop by KK if you're in the Ward area!

This was a great find for dinner during our vacation. The battered catfish was great, and the loco moco made with kalua pork that others in my group had looked delicious. Quick and friendly service.

Kakaako Kitchen is located in the Ward Center Shopping Mall. It is a great place for either a take out or eat in meal. You order the items and they will serve it to your table in a plastic box. Their famous wraps are huge-- orders some with 2 of them and they really fill them up. The order comes... More

Picked out this restaurant based on Loco Moco which my wife and sister-and-law enjoyed. I tried the Sauteed Mahi. Everything was good. I thought the sides (salad and rice) were certainly better than average fare. The Mahi Mahi could've had more green onions and Lomi salsa on them though for flavor. Price matched the quality. Would go back.

This wonderful cafe is hidden away at the west end of the otherwise unremarkable Ward Centre mall. It doesn't look much from the outside but the menu is interesting, the quality is excellent and the portions are generous. I've eaten here several times over the last few years and never been disappointed.

While I was shopping in the Ward Warehouse area, I stopped in to try Kakaako Kitchen. I had the What the Pho Dip. The name was hilarious and the sandwich was a combination of a French Dip and a Philly Cheesesteak on a taro roll with a pho dip. It was the best sandwich. Their entire menu looked really good....

My wife used to come here often over a decade ago when she lived in Honolulu, and she was pleased that the quality and taste have been maintained. She had the calamari salad; it was tasty and firm, not chewy like ill-prepared calamari in other places. I had the mahi-mahi sandwich and it was a large moist and tasty filet... More

First time I have ordered from them. Had a large lunch order off their regular menu (15+ people). Luckily they are starting to deliver for such large such orders which totally saved me from trying to schlep it through a building!! Food arrived on time and at the perfect temp with napkins, plastic-ware and ketchup (it was even labeled with... More
