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

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

The Chief was funny and the whole show was entertaining. The food was pretty good. They had a lot of variety and I'm grateful for it since I'm vegetarian. Definitely a must go!

The food was great and the cast was awesome. The evening was equal parts romantic, entertaining, and unforgettable. It truly was the highlight of my wife and I's 9 days on Oahu. If you go to a luau,go to this one.

We visited the show on our recent trip to Oahu based on the strong reviews here on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We arrived a little late as we were staying on the North Shore and the drive was longer than anticipated, but that was okay as it got off to a slower start. Once the Chief took over... More

My husband and I had an amazing time at chief's Luau. The Cheif was supremely entertaining and kept us laughing. The dancers were all fabulous. This was our first visit to Oahu and I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised! I thought it was going to be a bit kitsch however it actually turned out to be the... More
