    Thanks, Great reviews and pics - we were there in February. Although the dinner buffet seems to get mediocre reviews we loved it. The crab legs, sushi, oysters on half shell etc. were a real treat

    Thank you I'm glad you enjoyed my reviews :) . I love Hawaiian inspired food so I enjoyed all of the restaurants. I think they are all worth checking out at least once. The food isn't cheap, but no Disney food is, and thats the price you pay for staying at a beautiful resort.

    Also if you are interested, I have done reviews for non Disney restaurants in the area that include:

    Roys: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/02/22/roys/
    Ko 'Olina Hawaiian BBQ: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/02/14/ko-olina-hawaiian-bbq/

    And if you want to drive into Kapolei I've reviewed:
    Aloha Salads: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/02/20/aloha-salads/
    Genki Sushi: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/03/10/genki-sushi/
    Hapa Grill: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/03/13/hapa-grill/

    Thank you for the nice reviews. Can I ask where you found the coupons for Roy's? We'll be there in 6 weeks and plan on dinner at Roy's!

    Maybe I missed it but where are the prices? I like to look at the pics and see what each item costs.

    Thanks for the reviews.

    I am pretty certain most of the locations listed have online menus, you can probably see prices there though more and more restaurants don't list prices online as they change frequently.

    What was your favourite restaurant at Aulani? My family is heading there in a few months and we are trying to figure out the best places to go.

    I think my favourite meal was at Makahiki for dinner but I also loved the Papalua Shave Ice stand for a snack/dessert because they had lots of good flavours.
