“Good dinner.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I had Ono, my wife had shrimp. They were both cooked well and had good spices. The staff was friendly.

“Luau memories to last a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

You feel like family during the Wed luau! Incredible food and experience. I am grateful we came here for a luau. It was authentic luau and not a *show.* Small and intimate and did I mention the food. SOOOO many choices, so good. I could eat here forever.

Thank you for a memorable time for my mom and I.

“George Clooney ate here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here to eat along the Kauai movie tour and only had a choice of a few items off the menu. No idea what the prices were since it was included in our tour price. The pulled pork sandwich and fries were really good, the bbq sauce was a bit spicy just the way I like it! The Mai tai recipe is 50 years old. I didn't have one, but heard they were strong. They were fixing the bathrooms so we had to use the one in the luau lounge, which didn't seem that clean.

“Ambiance from the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We always enjoy Tahiti Nui, and this time we attended their luau which was a very worthwhile affair. Highly recommend the luau which they only have on Wednesday nights.

“The waitress asked for a tip.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went here intending to eat...and had heard that it was a great place....its not...
Toilets filthy and messy...and it was only lunch time.
We sat outside for a beer,to watch the world go by..service slow and unenthusiastic.
I had to go in to order our second drink from the bar. Female behind bar asked for a tip....
What sort of place does that ........make up your own mind.
