It is an experience of Hawaiian culture with great food. They have initially some demonstrations of various Hawaiian historical skills-cloth making, fishing, poi preparation. The food is prepared as a buffet. The choices are plentiful and all delicious. The narrator flawlessly tells a story of...More

Show was great, as was the food (for a buffet) but we were really disappointed that the dinner wasn’t outside as advertised. There was no rain that night so it was a little sad as we really wanted to experience an outdoor dinner. Photo service...More

Was a little disappointed with the lack of food choices but the food was good. Enjoyed the entertainment however I thought the costumes were more commercial than authentic. All in all a great evening!!

I had unlimited drinks when I was there in January. They kept refilling them at the table.

They don't have deals or discounts. We booked directly through their website (link through Royal Hawaiian). You should book early as possible though, seating is very limited and performances are only on Mondays.
