the roasted pig was great as was all of the food. I was not a fan of poi but that is not my taste. I Would buy it again.

Food was fantastic and very abundant. Got to try everything from fish to poi. Meals are provided in the context of the dances and ceremonies connected with the Polynesian people. Well worth experiencing when on Oahu.

The show and music was enjoyable. An... More

we ate here with the super ambassador package and had front row/table. this was nice cause there is plenty of dancing and singing to see. the food was okay. it was buffet style. we got to eat first because of the super ambassador status. If you want a smoothie inside a pineapple you have to pay 10 bucks for it.... More

Went for dinner but soon realized I had been herded into a barely disguised religious revival meeting! See my comment about the Center.
