“Great pizzas”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We actually went here twice. The first was at 9pm and place was packed. So we just waited 15 min for take out. Service was ok this time. What brought us back was the food.

Second time we went back was at 5pm and there was hardly anyone there. Pizzas are really only made for one person with a big appetite. Think there was about 6 slices. They didn't skimp on toppings either. And there isn't much difference in getting the thin crust. The regular pizza already pretty much has thin crust.

We also ordered the Thai salad which tasted great as well. Again portion size was big, but leaves you wanting more if you have a big appetite. Prices were a little high, but not so bad if you share your plates.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We have visited this place with our 4 children for dinner. We had been walking around Waikiki for hours finding nothing else than fast food or expensive restaurante. This place was a nice and unexpected surprise. The quality of the food is excellent but most of all the menu is different from the majority of the places around Honolulu that usually offer nothing more than "burger&chips". As an Italian I can say that pizza was really good, tiny and crispy as we like it. The Flat Bread option was also excellent, something in the middle between pizza and flat bread. The kids menu was also really good and catered for much more than chicken nuggets and chips. The atmosphere was children friendly, relaxing and welcoming. Service fast and good. We liked it so much that the next day we decided to go back for lunch. Top place for a nice family lunch or dinner.

“CPK better than usual”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We had a great experience at the CPK in Waikiki. We called and put our name on the list so when we arrived we did not have to wait as long. The food was amazing. Great service too.

“Great Meal for your Money!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

It seems like a lot of Restaurants are a little overpriced in Waikiki and the food is not that good. But if you want a great affordable meal this is the place to go.And yes the Menu has lots of choices including Mahi Mahi one of my favorite fish I eat while i visit Hawaii. Great ambiance, which is excellent for watching all the action. I like to sit outside in the terrace.

We ate here 3 times on our recent trip. Meals are a good size, my mum & I shared a pizza & salad and it was still too much!
