Kahai Kitchen was founded in Kalihi during the summer of 2006 by owners Nao Iwata and Chef David Yamamoto. Since then, Kahai Kitchen has become known for its gourmet food, elevated catering operation & services, gourmet plate lunches served with Aloha and has developed a loyal following.
Kahai originally started as a catering company; however, based on an overwhelming amount of requests, we launched the plate lunch aspect of our business; we have never looked back since. We truly appreciate our loyal following, clientele which is comprised of such a diverse range of segments.
Since then, Kahai Kitchen has moved from Kalihi Street to 946 Coolidge Street in the Mo’ili’ili area. The new location is better equipped to service both the catering and plate lunch aspects of the business. There is guest parking in the connecting lot adjacent to the restaurant on Coolidge Street as well as public street parking.
Kahai’s ever evolving menu creations stay with the same trends based on quality, creativity and consistent flavors. Kahai Kitchen strives to keep our dishes interesting while offering an extensive fixed daily menu of Kahai favorites in addition to our daily special offerings.
Our service philosophy strives to provide exceptional customer service, an efficient operation and the true Aloha spirit our customers have come to expect and deserve. We appreciate your time, value your business and look forward to meeting you.
