Very good variety

Lots of choice for all tastes including salad and fruit bar. Could have been a few more meat choices. Drink selection was good too.

The food was delicious and the show remarkable! Get the Super Amassasor Package for the royal treatment the whole day and front row seats for the luau.

We enjoyed the show although the emcee was a bit cheesy at times. The food was very good, especially the Kalua pig which we ate a ton of. It was the best pork we had on Oahu. I highly recommend their package which included the whole afternoon at the PCC, the luau and after dinner show called HA Breath of... More

Excellent food, fabulous show. We were seated at table for 8. We are from US Mainland, met couples at our table from Australia, UK, and Canada. Great food, great company, and great entertainment. Very enjoyable evening.

Decent buffet food. Nothing spectacular, but what you might expect from a buffet that serves 100's everyday.

well laid out dining area where all have easy access to buffet lines and a good view of the stage. Dinner rolls made with poi were surprisingly good. The pork was tender and juicy, and the fresh pineapple and mango were tasty.

We booked the tour directly from the website of the Polynesian Cultural Center. It was very easy and friendly. Our tour guide Oscar was great. He provided valuable information about the Island. The Polynesian Cultural Center is worth 2 days visits if you can offered the time. There is so much to learn, see and participate in the many activities.... More

We are vegetarian and my husband has a dairy allergy, but we were able to get a tofu stir fry and vegetarian chili upon request. During the show, they unearthed a roasted pig from the underground oven/fire pit that was... More
