We had a great time here. Yes we paid the premium price to sit right up front. Food was decent as I had a third helping. We thought the show was fabulous. The Chief uses a lot of dead pan humor and we really liked it. He not only could talk the talk, but could walk the walk. He was... More

It was my birthday, so I booked the luau for my husband, myself, and also my son and daughter-in-law who live in Honolulu. We opted for the Royal treatment and arranged for our own transportation so I can't comment on the bus. There were a few things that I didn't like...the food is average at best and the drinks were...

You will not be disappointed. The Chief and his villagers were incredibly talented with their cooking, music playing, singing, dancing, joking. Its just a great time. This was mine and my daughter's first trip to Hawaii and will have very fond memories from this particular experience at the Luau.

This is the genuine deal. The chief and his crew are AWESOME! I've seen the show twice now...and can't wait to go again. I've also seen two other luau's on Oahu and they don't compare. The Chief is hilarious, the food is great, and there is never a dull moment! Wish he still threw the fire spears tho!!!

We had SO much fun at Chief's! We can't say enough about it! We will definitely be going back! Our two boys (ages 1&3) had a blast as we'll! Food was excellent!

We were picked up in a large comfortable coach from the main street - hassle free with tickets we’d booked online. The guide’s banter was very good at keeping everyone entertained and teaching everyone some Hawaiian phrases as we wound our way around the island to the Sea Life park. Once we arrived we were issued our lei beads or... More

It is the Chief's Luau and make no mistake he is the chief! However his supporting cast and the entire show is amazing. This isn't a disney'esque watered down for the tourists, here we go again show. These performers go non stop with 110% heart and soul. The chief is hilarious but at the same time is delivering some great... More

We took our kids and was much fun. It seemed authentic and well done. The Chief is very funny and makes it different from the other Luaus. Only one or 2 jokes would be deemed inappropriate and went over our kids heads. The costumes looked authentic and were dressed in good taste( PG rated).It is not on the beach but... More

If you're contemplating a luau on your trip to Oahu, you need to attend the Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park. Chief Sielu is so entertaining and funny! His facial expressions are priceless! We had front row center seats so we could see everything quite well. We scheduled the luau for our last night in Hawaii and couldn't have found... More

I went to Hawaii for my 50th birthday and had never been to a Luau. Read trip advisor reviews and decided on The Chief's. When asked during my stay in Hawaii what sites I would take in, every time I told someone I was going to the Chief's luau they said you are going to the best. I was not... More
