Chef Chai

I came here for dinner during their soft opening. I didn't have a reservation but my friend said we could sit at the bar because the seats would open up quicker there. As I waited for the seats, I saw Chef Chai himself greeting customers and seating them. That's not something I see very often and I thought that was nice of him.

After being seated, I skimmed through the menu and saw a good selection of items. The bar also has a lot of alcohol. Being seated at the bar was awesome because the bar tender took really good care of us. Our food came out quick and our water was constantly being refilled. My friends also asked the bartender a bunch of questions about the restaurant and the food and he knew his stuff. The interior design of the restaurant is really nice. For the patio, they have these really cool torch lights that no one else on the island has.

The portions for the food are perfect and they're also great for sharing. The prices are a bit high so you might want to save this place for a special occasion. They offer valet parking for $3 inside the Pacifica Honolulu Tower or you can come after 6:30pm and park on the side of Kapiolani Blvd right in front of the restaurant. I highly recommend dining here.
