The lei was beautiful. The food delicious. The roasted pig a great touch. The desserts were ok. The entertainment was fun. The hostess did a great job getting to know the crowd and involving everyone who wanted to be involved The pina colada drink in the coconut was actually delicious.(extra charge).

Honestly, my husband and I had a poor experience with our Luau at the PCC in 2015, so we were not very excited for this one. But, we thought we should take the kids, so we went anyway, Thank goodness we did. It was really good food (all you could eat) and the entertainment was great. I especially loved when... More

As you enter the luau area, you are greeted and get Lei'd. You are then seated, on a first come first serve basis, as tables fill up. There are 2 food stations, one at each end of the room. It is all you can eat buffet, plus a Poke station with Tuna and clams, and the roasted pig station. Save... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center. The attraction is very well run providing a good history of the Polynesian islands and their cultures. The Luau was good, not great, but to be fair we don't have a point of comparison. The food was good, buffet style, but the dinner seemed rushed, mostly concerned with getting the many... More

Loved the food here and would have given it an excellent rating except the deserts weren't very good. I loved the rest of it and the entertainment was good.

We enjoyed the food here. Unfortunately, it's only communal tables and you are told where to sit. If you get an ambassador package you don't have to wait in line for the table and you get a better view of the show while eating.

Lots of people eating with you and lines at the buffet tables, but could go back for seconds. You could try different foods and desserts.

The staff were fantastic. 70 percent are students working at the Hawaiian University (I don't remember the name of the university) band the Polynesian Cultural Center helps pay for student education. I thinks that is great. The Luau food was good and the host of the Luau was just like in the movies. Real fun and playful with the crowd.... More
