At Pagoda Floating Restaurant, it’s all about making memories while dining on some of Hawaii’s best buffet options.
Pagoda strives to offer Hawaiian and Japanese buffet dining options to its patrons, but mostly, it aims to perpetuate the importance of spending time with family and those you love during the holiday season.
Book a lunch or dinner event by the end of the year (with plans to come in before March 2016) and take advantage of a specially priced international buffet menu ($30 per person, lunch; $35, dinner). The spread features a roast prime rib of beef carving station or servings of snow crab legs. (Call the catering office for more information.)
In Hawaii, the holiday season normally means parties and get-togethers. To dissipate some of the stress involved in planning these affairs, Pagoda also will offer Thanksgiving to-go meals.
Perfect for parties of six to eight people, the turkey dinner feasts feature corn-bread stuffing with Portuguese sausage, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, fresh cranberry relish, yams with marshmallows topped with macadamia nuts, homemade pumpkin pie and one dozen Punaluu sweet bread rolls. Those seeking more flair also can opt for additional enhancements such as roast prime rib (whole/half), guava-glazed ham (whole/half), Pagoda’s signature White Chocolate Pumpkin Bread Pudding and more.
Cost is $145 and prepaid orders are due to 948-8370 by Nov. 20. Drive-thru pickup takes place Nov. 26, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the establishment’s Kanunu Street entrance.
