Well.....not sure how this even earns one star, but since it is the lowest possible rating it fits. Prepare yourself to get ripped off, both with your time and money. The Luau starts at 5pm, waiting on the side of the highway with Aloha. You...More

This was our first traditional luau. It’s indoors and pretty warm in the summer but you’re protected from rain and bugs. This is a family style luau so it’s pretty chill. The Mai Tais are good and very plentiful. The food is great! And tons...More

I had the Moco loco and it was so good. I would definitely recommend it. My wife and kids had the pork sandwiches and loved them just as much.

We have enjoyed many a great Mai Tai at Tahiti Nui. They have local live music and the crowd is pretty relaxed there. Very casual... This is a regular visit for us every time we are in Kauai. This place is the opposite of most...More

Our family was there in November and loved Tahiti Nui. The family atmosphere is what will bring us back the next time we are in Kauai.
