  • Things have changed since the 80s. But I grew up coming here for years. The look and feel is so very different, however everyone will find something here for them. That's how varied the stores are. Have tons of eating locations. They also have a game area for the younger customers and they have recently included a more older customer game center with bowling, games and food. Will continue to visit as it's been a part of the majority of my life. Lucky we live Hawaii.
  • Lots of parking and near Waikiki. Hawaii's largest shopping center, for now. More upscale stores then any other type. There is a large assortment of eating places so you won't starve here. Multi ethnic dining increases your choices if you can't decide on what to eat. Bring your walking shoes if you want to see the entire 4 levels of the mall. I wouldn't leave valuables in your car while it is parked there. They have good security but every once in a while they get car break-ins there. The food court is a must. Good luck.
  • I used to live here years ago and Ala Moana has always had awesome shopping. With the expansion, there's even more. Yet, is that a good thing? Your choice. I will say it's incredibly crowded and overwhelming, but there are amazing stores. The loss of Shirokiya (it's only food now), is too bad. It was a great, and different, department store. I probably won't go back, but that doesn't mean it's not amazing. It's just not for me, anymore.
  • This is one of the more impressive shopping malls that I have visited. Lots of high end luxury stores and impressive displays. When we visited, there were also performances by local groups on the stage. I also liked that there are 2 food courts here, a traditional mall food court with a lot of chain restaurants and a Japanese themed one. Since this mall is so popular, finding parking in their massive parking garage can still be a hassle.
  • I went to the shopping center to find the satellite city hall branch to register my bicycles. Overall I was impressed with the shopping center it was clean no overflowing trash cans anywhere. The stores looked nice with a large variety of shopping venues. The satellite city hall location is cash only but luckily there was an ATM located towards the muddle of the shopping center. Parking was easy to find as there is a large parking structure on the site. The satellite city hall location was pretty crowded wait time was about 30 minutes on Thursday at about 09:30 am.
