All employees involved in the Luau are attentive, care about the... More

The food was pretty good and there was plenty of it. I wish they had more than one station for the food so it didn't take so long to get through line. There were three things we didn't like: They were very cheap on the soda/drinks (4 oz glasses) A couple pitchers on the table would have been better. There... More

Didn't know what to expect with so many people there, but it worked out great. The food was very good - except the poi (I don't know why anyone likes that stuff). Lots of seafood, pork, beef, etc. You won't leave hungry. The show had lots of different things happening and was plenty entertaining. Lots of audience interaction and participation... More

The pork is great. Go to the Center servers where they are cutting up the whole pig and they will look after you. Go as soon as it opens. We came a little later and performance with dinner had already started.

This is where we enjoyed the luau feast while vacationing in Hawaii. A great experience! The Polynesian Cultural Center is definitely worth a visit too.

There is plenty of food options offered. I liked the salad bar and dessert options. Pork was well cooked. You could opt to watch the pig being delivered on spits. During the meal there were several performers. I liked the 11 year old boy that twirled fire.

Thank Denise S
