Waikīkī, Hawaii (June 2, 2020) Royal Hawaiian Center announces the reopening of dine-in operations at a variety of the Center’s restaurants. Restaurants reopening for dine-in service on Friday, June 5 include Doraku Sushi, Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar, Island Vintage Coffee, Island Vintage Wine Bar, Noi Thai Cuisine, Restaurant Suntory, and Wolfgang’s Steakhouse.

Reservations are strongly encouraged as the restaurants have reduced the capacity of their dining rooms to allow for physical distancing. To show support for the community and the Center’s merchants, Royal Hawaiian Center is currently offering three hours of free parking with any purchase from the Center.

Royal Hawaiian Center is working closely with its restaurants to ensure that the guidelines released by local authorities, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the National Restaurant Association are followed carefully. Current measures in place include, but are not limited to:

  • Reduced dining room capacities by at least 50% to allow for physical distancing between customers;
  • Increased regularity of sanitation for all high traffic touch points (menus, workstations, equipment, screens, door knobs, restrooms, etc.);
  • Group dining limited to a maximum of 10 individuals per group;
  • Pre-shift screening for all employees;
  • Face coverings required for restaurant entry.

“The health and safety of our Center’s employees and patrons remains are top priority as we welcome guests back to Royal Hawaiian Center,” said Marleen Akau, Royal Hawaiian Center Vice President, General Manager. “We have been amazed at the resiliency of our restaurant partners throughout this time, and thank them for their efforts to continue serving the community by making operational adjustments for takeout and delivery, while also making charitable contributions to first responders, essential workers, and organizations in need. We look forward to returning their support as we gather around their tables once again.”

Additional restaurant operations, including the reopening of the Waikiki Food Hall, will be confirmed by the Center as details become available.
