Whether you come in with that one special person, family or friends for Valentine’s Day or “Galentines Day” — officially “ladies celebrating ladies” but really, it applies to all friends in general — Pagoda Floating Restaurant will be ready to fill tummies with lovely bites.

Pagoda’s Valentine’s Dinner Buffet on Feb. 14 hits all the right spots. You’ll need more than a fork and knife to dig into this spread. So ready your bibs and lap napkins and expect to indulge in Fresh Oysters on the Half Shell with Shiso Gari Shoga Mignonette, Prime Rib, Steamed Alaskan Snow Crab Legs, Kiawe Smoked Beef Brisket, Hamachi Molokai Style, Shrimp Tempura and “Chinese Style” Kona Kampachi, and the list goes on.

Plus, as is Pagoda tradition, a myriad of stations are up for grabs like a sushi station, chocolate fondue station and a delectable dessert bar featuring homemade pies, red velvet cup-cakes with cream cheese frosting, bread pudding and more.

This captivating buffet will run from 5 to 9 p.m. on Valentine’s Day only. Adults are $70, seniors 60 years and older are $60, and keiki 5-10 years old are $15.

As a shout out to the couples, Pagoda Floating Restaurant makes for an extra intimate night of enjoying the sparkling pond, bamboo accents, and tranquil sounds coming from rustling leaves and flowing waters.

“We want to promote a romantic dining experience, surrounded by a beautiful waterfall garden setting filled with an abundance of salt water and koi fish,” says restaurant manager Tracy Yadao. “Diners receive great, friendly service with aloha while enjoying a scrumptious dinner buffet.”

As a fun activity, guests can also enhance their visit by feeding the colorful koi fish — a Pagoda exclusive.

When Valentine’s Day is all said and done, don’t forget to stop by this unique restaurant for other desirable eats for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner seven days a week.
