Pagoda Floating Restaurant

Mid-century buildings/Vintage Eats

Since 1964 the Pagoda Floating Restaurant has been a fixture in the old Pawa’a neighborhood of central Honolulu; a kitschy, mid-century, circular building surrounded by a man-made tropical pond filled with Japanese koi fish and a waterfall. It’s classic Hawaiiana.

The Pagoda exudes that authentic, artificial island-style tropical oasis feel – which includes an adjoining hotel with a lava-rock wall ballroom – and has been a unique gathering place for locals and visitors alike to enjoy special occasions, celebrations and dine on Hawaii’s local flavors, buffet-style . Their staff is attentive and super friendly too.

A great spot to seek out if you’re at nearby Amana Street or the surrounding area.
