Our favorite part of our Hawaii trip
This was our first luau and we loved it! Thank you Chief and staff for sharing your love of Hawaii and your talents, with all of us. Our 1st Mai Tai’s were delicious. The food was very good, but the dancing, with and without fire, and the music, were awesome! Dancing to the wedding song made me tear up. Special thanks to Richard, our concierge at Queen Kapiolani, for helping us get the tickets. Only recommendation is to play Hawaiian music, to and from, on the buses to get people in the spirit of the celebration.

ruined our trip
Jun 2021
we booked this show months ago with transportation. and wrote the hotel where we were going to stay. no email or text received if it's possible or not. So one day before the show, called them and left the message. got a call back next day and told me there is no transportation. and told me NO full refund since its same cancel. it ruined our trip and the person called me was no interested in finding the way to solve the problem but saying " no we don't provide the transportation from the place where you stay" it was very rude.

Endless Lines; Poor Venue
May 2021 • Family
We waited 25 minutes to check in. Then waited 15 minutes in line to buy drinks. Finally when our table was called for dinner we waited approx 30 minutes in the buffet line. This is all for Luau that is literally at a water park. There is no beautiful backdrop; you go through the water park entrance area; line up for food at the water park common areas, use the water park bathrooms, sit in an area with folding tables near water park slides. The staff was pleasant enough, the food tasted fine though only warm by the time we got it. The show was average. There are much better options out there that I wish we had gone to instead such as Paradise Cove.

A scam
May 2021 • Couples
This is a SCAM. 180$ per person as “royal experience” that more than the basic experience has only one drink (cheap drink) and are going to seat literally a few feet closer to the stage. They advertise it as “all you can eat” and with traditional Hawaiian food. The food is terrible and extra cheap. Basically stale pulled pork, noodles and CATFISH all in one plate. You won’t even want to eat one plate, all you can eat is pointless.
The place is crowded, basically a cruise crowd sat on plastic chairs. The show is based of a few dances from Polynesian culture that not much have to do with Hawaii itself. At the end the crew gives a fire performance but nothing special. SAVE YOUR MONEYYY

Couples visit
Getting in was easy with covid restrictions in place. All seats offered a good view of the stage. The hosts were very funny and interactive. The show was amazing! We did think the intermission was a bit too long, we got bored during this time. My parties biggest complaint was the food. It was bland and lacking of any flavor. It was a shame to see so much food going to waste, and not just at our table. The beer selection was decent but unfortunately all of our beers were warm.

Great experience
Apr 2021
the luau was an awesome experience. The weather held up for the most part. We got some rain but were given some punchos to keep from getting too wet. The food and drinks were good. I got great pictures and video of the event. The chief even recognized birthdays and anniversaries. We were celebrating 32years and we were all called to the front of the stage and our wives were given flowers.

The BEST Luau!
Apr 2021 • Family
We have been to 20 plus Luau’s and this is the BEST luau on Oahu!! Our teenagers loved it too!
The Chief makes this show with his great stories and hilarious sense of humor. Very interactive and fantastic show! Food was really delicious too.
