Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

This old adage encourages the power of positive thinking and holds true when trying to accomplish even the smallest of goals. If there is anyone that knows anything about positive thinking and hard work, it’s Chef Chai Chaowasaree.

The shining success of Chaowasaree’s culinary career along with his restaurant, Chef Chai on Kapiolani Boulevard, has certainly landed him on the moon and also among the stars.

Just last week on Wake Up 2day on KHON2, host Kelly Simek interviewed Marie Osmond who mentioned her favorite restaurant on the island is Chef Chai and she absolutely loves his Fresh Baked Pineapple Macadamia Nut Tart.

The star-studded show doesn’t stop there, as Chaowasaree brings the stars to his customers. Chef Chai’s Monthly Full Moon Concert grants guests a relaxing evening and smooth Hawaiian sounds from local celebrity artist Robert Cazimero with graceful and talented hula dancing by Halau Na Kamalei.

The next concert will be on Wednesday, Oct. 24 with dinner at 6 p.m. and the show at 7:15 p.m. In addition to the lovely performances, it’s no doubt that the menu, that is a four-course meal, is a toothsome galaxy all in itself.

The options begin with small bites on the starter menu, then grow to the appetizer selections. The main course is next, and it’s without a doubt that Chaowasaree is to end the meal on a sweet note with a choice from the dessert menu.

When it comes time for the entree pickings, taking the spotlight among many customers is the loaded Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Foie Gras that is a four-course meal, is a toothsome galaxy all in itself.
