    1. have you done robot sushi? sushi on plates goes around the restaurant on a conveyor belt. price is per plate. there are several genki sushi places near ala moana. no reservations iirc, but you should double check.

      there is makitti in waikiki, a buffet with foods from around the world with a hello kitty theme. just get the buffet and not the extra "prime rib."

      1. These recs are more if the "great" refers to 'kid-friendly' and not to cuisine:

        CPK, Bubba Gump's, or Romano's Macaroni Grill at Ala Moana Shopping Center
        Ryans at Ward Center (outdoor terrace)
        Dave and Buster's at Ward Theatre complex

        1. The Cheesecake Factory
          Duke's
          Hula Grill @ the Outrigger
          Shorebird
          Macaroni Grill

          Aloha

            cheesecake factory doesn't take reservations and there is always a wait.

            big city diner is pretty good.

              Aloha..
              So many times walking by that 2+ hour wait in Waikiki to Roy's and shake my head since I see the same people waiting after I've dined eating and drinking with Diva and still have time to catch some music and a mai tai at House without a Key and there still there..
              We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian last year and we made a game out of it..
              With so much fab food on da island, the Cheesecake Factory hours long wait ranks up there with Bigfoot and the mystery of Untersberg.
              IMO

              ; )

              beach chick is right on the money. If you choose Cheesecake Factory just reserve table an hour or so w hostess then walk around mall at Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center to kill time.
