We all know Waikiki is expensive. If you aren’t careful, you can spend a lot of money on mediocre restaurants and meager portions. However, if you look hard enough you can find some great cheap eats, even in Waikiki! Here are our Oahu’s Best Coupons top picks for cheap restaurants in Waikiki .
250 Beach Walk, Honolulu, HI 96815
If a Japanese restaurant with a quiet, laid back atmosphere in Waikiki sounds appealing, you should plan a visit to Wasabi Bistro. Tucked away in the courtyard area of the Breakers Hotel on the west end of Waikiki, it’s a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. The Breakers architecture is reminiscent of 60s-70s Hawaii, which is unfortunately slowly disappearing from Waikiki.
Our recommendation is the Chicken Teriyaki, which includes a salad, side dishes, tsukemono pickles and rice for just $14.50. (lunch only)
Lower Level, 2250 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815
Shaka Poke is located conveniently in the center of Waikiki . Go down the stairs and you’ll find Shaka Poke in the lower level of the Waikiki Shopping Plaza, across the street from DFS T Galleria. The fish is always fresh and the prices are easy on the wallet.
We recommend the Ahi Garlic Steak – $13.50.
Aloha Burrito Shop
Mexican food is generally hard to find in Waikiki, and it’s even harder to find it if you’re on a budget. If you’re looking to fill up for cheap, Aloha Burrito Shop has you covered with their $9 Braised Beef Burrito. Featuring braised beef, pinto beans, cilantro rice and pineapple salsa, you won’t be disappointed grabbing one before hitting the beach.
Braised Beef Burrito – $9.
Teddy’s Bigger Burgers
134 Kapahulu Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815
Teddy’s is a Hawaii burger staple, loved by locals and tourists alike. You’ll love the big, tasty burgers with endless customization options. The Teddy’s in Waikiki is located right across the street from the Honolulu Zoo, so it’s a great option for pre or post zoo meals.
We love the good deal on the 1/3 pound single Bacado (bacon, cheddar, avocado) Burger for just $12.08!
226 Lewers St # L106, Honolulu, HI 96815
There’s a lot of different types of poke, and ordering at a random poke stand can be somewhat intimidating if you don’t know what to expect. Not to worry! At Poke Bar, you can choose your own fish and toppings to create the perfect poke bowl just for you. Choose from fresh fish like ahi and salmon, and add your sides for a tasty bowl to enjoy in store or to take with you to the beach!
Regular Poke Bowl – $15.95
