They put on a great show and, unlike PCC, have alcohol :). This is worth seeing and even better if you don't want to deal with traffic to another location.

There are pros and cons to every luau and what I missed in the show part was made up for in the food part. I finally found the kalua pig that I liked. I've been to some luaus where the pig tasted too gamey. I also liked the fact that you were served at the table instead of going through... More

Extremely disappointed and disgusted that the Hale Koa Luau no longer provides a military discount for service members stationed in Hawaii. For a business designed for the benefit of military service members, it is shocking to hear of such a business practice. While still one of the best Luaus on the island of Oahu,the management needs to rethink this decision.

On the day of event when I called them to inquire about the parking they told me this is military only and I cannot go there. What!!! They let me book the ticket... More

I was told that this was an average Luau. Wow they gave bad advice as this was fantastic show. You get a free alcohol drink as soon as you step in. Great food and they give you plenty. You are entertained before and during and after dinner. The performers are excellent. I really enjoyed the dinner and show and strongly... More

I bought tickets to the Hale Koa luau because it had great reviews and was half the price of every other luau I researched. That being said, my family (wife, 14 yr old son, and 8 yr old girl) and I should up about 45 minutes after the official start time due to a hotel room safe issue (both kids... More

We were very disappointed in the luau for several reasons. The time on the ticket was 5:30, and there was quite a line but it went quickly. We were handed a mixed drink when we were admitted and then directed to an area beside the building where the luau was being held. We were entertained for an hour in the... More

Taste traditional Hawaiian foods as well as modern day favorites like mahi mahi, kiilua pork, teri beef and teri chicken, fried rice, fried banana, sweet potato slice, fresh pineapple and the coconut cake with coconut pudding. Enjoyed the variety and the show was Ono too!

The entertainment was outstanding! The food was very good as well. This was our favorite luau and was also the most reasonably priced.
