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 have developed a loyal following over the years.
Kahai Kitchen originally started as a catering company; however, based on an overwhelming amount of requests, we launched the plate lunch aspect of our business and have never looked back since. We truly appreciate the opportunity to serve you!.
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 serve both areas of the business. There is guest parking in the lot adjacent to the restaurant on Coolidge Street as well as public street parking.
Kahai’s ever evolving menu is extensive and based on quality. 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 expect and deserve. We appreciate your time, value your business and look forward to meeting you.
