As colorful koi swim gracefully through the water surrounding Pagoda Floating Restaurant, and lush trees sway in the breeze, customers are treated to a rare sight of thriving life in the middle of Honolulu’s concrete jungle.
And if the view isn’t enough, try the establishment’s buffet of locally inspired food, including different variations of the fresh catch served daily — think Steamed Fish “Chinese Style,” Seafood with Black Bean Sauce, Squid Luau, Miso Butterfish and an assortment of poke. Also consider Pagoda’s a la carte menu, which offers an array of equally satisfying fare that all appetites can enjoy.
Furthermore, with three banquet rooms and a booming restaurant space, Pagoda is more than equipped to serve parties of any size. One of its most recent event specials provides a complementary supply of endless snow crab legs with any banquet reservation (at least 50 people) — with a minimum of two entree orders. The event must be booked before Sept. 30 and planned for dates prior to Dec. 31.
Some entrees to consider adding to your banquet feast are Pagoda’s prime rib carving station and its local, organic roast pig — two of the restaurant’s most popular items.
