One of the better luau's

We went to a couple luau's while on Oahu, and this one was the best of the 3 we went to. The food was very good (for a luau - which the 3 we went to were all just average food) and the show was really good and very family friendly. The staff was fantastic - very friendly and seemed... read more

This is a nice Luau if it is the only one you can see during your time on the island. The food is pretty good and the show itself is nice but limited to a narrow strip/stage on one end. If you are not part of an Ambassador Pkg or higher level ticket payer your seats will be in the... More

My family and I enjoyed this luau after our visit to the Polynesian center. The luau had entertainment and better than average food. Although the luau seats over 100 people everyone gets through the line swiftly and there is plenty of food for everyone. Everyone who works there couldn't be any nicer either.

This was much better than I expected. I was not expecting everything to be really delicious and it was. There was a great variety of food. Something for everyone!. Even my snooty kids enjoyed it. The pork was delicious as was just about everything else. Wasn't a fan of the poi, but we tried it. Really enjoyed everything. Well done!

Aloha Linda, Thank you for coming to our Luau! I'm so glad you enjoyed the food for the most part. Poi is not for everyone, but at least you can cross it off your list! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate hearing feedback about how we're doing. We hope to see you back here soon.... More

Great great service! We found out, that the proceeds at the Polynesian center goes into supporting students from the Polynesian islands! The food at the Luau was good. You get to try polynesian food (e.g. Poi) and kalua pig.. they also had entertainment during dining. If you're heading out there, do the Luau.

The restaurant was nicely laid out and given the amount of people there it was nicely set up and they had a wonderful and large variety of food that did not run out. It is pricey but in my opinion it was worth the money.

This was my and my wife's first luau and will be the last. I had heard the food at luaus wasn't great, and it was as expected. Not a lot of variety: Hawaiian standards like pulled pork, poke, poi, fruit, and guava desserts. The desserts were good and the pork and poke were good. THERE IS NO ALCOHOL though which... More

The lady emcee did a nice job, the food was pretty good and the entertainment, especially the children performers, was good.

Well worth the expense, this was my favorite meal during our entire trip. The show is good and the food is better. Plenty of food for the less adventurous palate, but this will also be an excellent opportunity for the more adventurous to sample some traditional island fare, including poi, lomi lomi slamon, and poke.

The food was good and the show, although corny was entertaining. The show "ha" was not a traditional Luau that I was expecting. Also felt like it was way too commercial and we're always trying to sell us something.
