We have attended several luaus during our visits, but this was the best. Entertainment and comedy were unmatched.We bought the Paradise package and it worked out well. Being able to go first through the buffet line is a definite plus. Drinks were a bit watered down and food was average, but you son't really go to a luau for the... More

I had researched reviews online to find the best luau. All signs pointed to Chief's luau! The setting can't be beat! It is a newer luau, not even celebrating their 2nd anniversary yet. We bought the royal package & it was definitely worth it! The royal package gets you the closest tables, 3 free drinks, and table service instead of... More

This was very enjoyable to both my husband and my six year old. Unfortunately for me, it didn't start out as happily. We had chosen the Royal package as I thought it would be nice to get the behind the scenes tour of the dolphins, sharks and turtles. Sadly, because we decided to take the bus up there (by no... More

Food was ok, drinks were ok but show was great. The whole evening was very entertaining. From the pre-show activities, right through the show itself. Beautiful setting with the ocean as a backdrop....fantastic sunset too. Worth the price

This was one of the best evenings of our honeymoon trip to Oahu and Maui! The food was great, the activities were very well planned and engaged everyone, and the chief was hilarious! He really gets his guests involved! I cannot recommend this luau enough! Fun for everyone! You will not regret it!

The teens and tweens in the family were dreading this from the moment we booked it, but by the end of the evening they were having a great time too. Chief Sielu is a great entertainer. We especially enjoyed the happy and enthusiastic faces on the big boys dancing! I don't know what it is, but you just can't help... More

The Food was poor. I was expecting a Hawain food experience, instead we found a poor open buffet where the food was not enough. The free drinks were ( Mai tai ) not good. The show was average.

This was such a wonderful show, with enough crowd interaction and comedic spots that it was highly entertaining. Definitely recommend anyone to choose this luau when visiting O'ahu!
