This luau at the center was good. They had a good variety of foods done well. Even though the place was full they were well organized and had no issues whatsoever. People were all happy and friendly. Great luau over all, however no alcohol..... therefore no problems.

If you visit the cultural center the luau is a must if you haven't yet been to a luau. They take the time ti welcome you and the show is suited to all ages. Most important there is a good variety of food and it all tastes great.

For me the Luau was the best part of the PCC. The food was really good and no one in our party of 9 left hungry. I found the Ahi Poke to be some of the best I have ever had! Also the staff were all super nice and you could really fell that Aloha spirit. Loved the hostess who... More

It is very large buffet style dining. It was well organized and getting all the tables to the buffet was well run. Food was good. Entertainment while you ate, too!

The food and performance during dinner was fantastic. We happened to be there for the last show for their Hostess and she brought her family onstage to end the show with her. It was very memorable!

Service was excellent and the food was very good if your one that likes this type of food. I myself would have been happier when they asked us if we wanted to upgrade our ticket if they had of told us about the Prime Dinner. In the future this is what I will do.

While this luau did not have a show which we were expecting, the food was great and varied. An all you can eat buffet which was a nude encounter after a full day at the PCC. After the luau you get to see the HA show.

The staff at the Luau were so personable! My server introduced herself and tended to our drinks and dishes. Every server seemed to be genuinely happy and it was contagious!! If you go there they really treat you like family (ohana)
