Always amazing

Have been coming here since I can remember. Food is as wonderful as I have ever remembered it. The Tahitian feast is my go-to meal. The food is under priced, in my opinion and I love that it's BYOB.

We've only been here once in the 8 years we've lived in the area. For us, it was nice to try once, but have no intentions of going back. For the price, we can get better food elsewhere.

Although I do not live in the area I still dine here when in town. It's simply perfection. You don't stay in business with the same menu since the 60's unless you are doing something exceptionally well. It's awesome.

I always love going to Omni Hut to enjoy the wonderful food and awesome atmosphere experience. There's a reason they've been there since 1960's . It's EXCELLENT.... Don't wait till a special occasion go more often but be sure to call ahead for a reservation. I keep them on speed dial. Love that it's BYOB.

The Omni Hut is probably the longest serving Restuarant in the Smyrna area. It was started years ago by an Air Force family stationed at the Seward Air Force Base in Smyrna. Always serving excellent food, soups, and salads. The rib tidbits are a must when you dine at the Hut!

We love Omni Hut for a special night out. Most of my family enjoys getting the big Tahitian feasts with a variety of finger foods on a flaming thingie. I prefer the Chicken Ono Ono. Salad is fine. Soup is good. Our favorite is the mushrooms; we fight over them. We always take guests if we want to impress :)

This is a must when in the area! My sister took us there the last time in Smyrna. The story about how the Omni hut got started. You must include the ribs in either a combination dinner or as an appetizer. So worth it !

One of the best aspects of the Omni Hut is the vintage, Polynesian feel of a restaurant that has been successful for decades. The interior remains as it was forty years ago but that certainly adds to the charm of this family owned gem. The food is quite good with lots of unique choices. The shrimp panamanian and Polynesian pit... More
