Show was the best part

The buffet was ok. Not much to choose from. Crab legs were cold and so was the steak. Not much of a dessert choice. Had fruit display that only had pinapple. The show was pretty good.

We had been walking around Waikiki for almost an hour trying to find a decent place to eat, when we stumbled upon this place. We were allowed to walk in and have a look at the buffet before making up our mind. The menu is absolutely ok and very varied. There should be something for anybody's taste. I prefered the... More

Minimum wait and ideal for large group numbers, the food was easy to access and never run out, the entertainment was a little cheesy and directed at centre stage tables mostly.

We decided to give this restaurant a go and we were pleasantly surprised. A good selection of food including prawns, calamari and even arctic claws. Beef steak was hot and freshly made - absolutely yummy. We had a seat near the performance and again this was very professional and entertaining. My suggestion is to watch when the hot food comes...

Lured in by the performers, we missed the first sign that should have warned us: Lots of empty tables and chairs. Quickly escorted to our table, we missed the second sign: Almost no local customers. The performers distracted us, so we missed the third sign: Hand written food labels, sticky taped to the buffet glass. Performance host didn't have his... More

Ate here twice during my week's stay. It's not really gourmet quality, but at dinner you get steak cooked to order, a half lobster (with coupon), various fish and a few other entrees and salads and desserts. The little Polynesian show was what made the $20 or so price seem like something of a bargain. Have been to a high... More

My husband and I decided to try this place after walking by. The price seemed okay for a buffet-style meal and we got a coupon for free lobster, so we decided to give it a go. BIG MISTAKE! If I could give this zero stars, I would. First, the "show" was a sad little thrown together thing that was mildly... More

We were told this was great value food and included Island Dancers. It was the worst food possible and the dancers were obviously second rate. We attended the second sitting which was probably a mistake. It appeared a lot of the food was topped up. All that was meant to be hot was cold. We decided to have some fillet... More

DO NOT go near this place. Hadn't been there in many years but live nearby so thought I'd give it a try. Big mistake. The hot food was cold. The cold food was warm. They ran out of ice cream and the girl just walked away without saying anything with a long line still waiting; we had to ask someone... More

I have not eaten here but just saw news reports that the State Dept of Health shut the restaurant down today, 11/05, for numerous, ongoing violations. Fined owners $35,000. "However, follow-up inspections on Oct. 16, 19, 22 and Nov. 5 revealed ongoing violations, including seafood and meat products being left out on the buffet line at room temperature with no... More
