The only reason we went was because hurricane Ana was passing by and we were in the middle of 36 hours of non-stop rain. This seemed like a great way to spend the evening, have dinner and stay dry. We were very impressed. It was a great evening. Dinner was pretty good. Don’t miss the Salmon – it looks just... More

If you want a reasonably priced show with some flair, some Hawaii, some pop music (Elvis, Michael Jacson, Lady Gaga) this is great entertainment. Go for online booking and save 10% or eat ant PF Changs and show the receipt. Go for the drink only and you get a great price of around $50. The show has both the Hawaiian... More

I loved this show. It is a great addition to … and evolution of … the Waikiki entertainment offerings. Go to a “real” Polynesian Cultural Center Luau first to learn the history and see the “real” thing. But when you’re looking for more fun entertainment with a Hawaiian flare, go to this show. It is a great mix of an... More

We had the buffet meal with a free Mai tai drink (watered down) & food was tasty, plenty of it, & included fresh delicious pineapple. Nice meal with hula dancers & singer & interactive opportunity for audience members to learn hula. Staff were friendly & accommodating. Then came the 1 1/2 hour show with Elvis, Lady Gaga, & Michael Jackson... More

Do no expect a Vegas Show. But the show is good. I really liked the Polynesian dancers. Great group of dancers full of energy. The imitators of the stars were very good also. All the group did a wonderful effort to entertain us.

Elvis was impressive. Lady Gaga and Polynesian were very good. Michael Jackson was like a bad lip sync mime!

My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was fast paced with a variety of legendary stars and Hawaiian entertainment. The star imitators were themselves very talented displaying singing and dancing skills that authentically emulated their celebrity idols. The food was better than the standard you would expect at such attractions a strong 6.5 on a 1 to 10... More

I watched this show on a stormy night. Me and my friend were very much entertained and we enjoyed the the program (we didn't purchase the dinner with show package). Michael Jackson impersonator did a wonderful number, he could really do an excellent version of the original “Gloved One”’s moves. Elvis Presley was good, although I was expecting he could... More

An exciting, energetic show. The performers portraying Lady Gaga, Elvis and Michael Jackson would be better classed as imitators rather than impersonators. They didn't quite have the voices of the originals. Very good show though with a good mix of traditional Hawaiian music and dance.

This show changes each time we see it and it gets better each time the production is really professional the Michael Jackson performer was really good and was a great dancer. This show was over really quickly and there was no slow parts The whole cast really work hard.
