Man this restaurant is terrible. I should have heeded the call of some Japanese guy on the street calling out to us how bad it is. Food cold, made from terrible ingredients and just awful. Hands down the worst restaurant Ive been to. Dont get me started about the waiter and his ignorant comments. Only good thing is the young... More

The catch is the performances, which aren't too bad but nothing great. The second thing that catches you is the price, which is why I wonder what the negative reviews are getting at when they were obviously drawn in by the price to start with, as we were. We were there on a Sunday, they had a reasonable crowd in... More

Our first visit to Hawaii was over thirty five years ago and this place was always above average and good value today for lunch it was a disappointment to say the least. The birds all over the place and around the food was sickening

The buffet was ok. Not much to choose from. Crab legs were cold and so was the steak. Not much of a dessert choice. Had fruit display that only had pinapple. The show was pretty good.

We had been walking around Waikiki for almost an hour trying to find a decent place to eat, when we stumbled upon this place. We were allowed to walk in and have a look at the buffet before making up our mind. The menu is absolutely ok and very varied. There should be something for anybody's taste. I prefered the... More

Minimum wait and ideal for large group numbers, the food was easy to access and never run out, the entertainment was a little cheesy and directed at centre stage tables mostly.

We decided to give this restaurant a go and we were pleasantly surprised. A good selection of food including prawns, calamari and even arctic claws. Beef steak was hot and freshly made - absolutely yummy. We had a seat near the performance and again this was very professional and entertaining. My suggestion is to watch when the hot food comes...

Lured in by the performers, we missed the first sign that should have warned us: Lots of empty tables and chairs. Quickly escorted to our table, we missed the second sign: Almost no local customers. The performers distracted us, so we missed the third sign: Hand written food labels, sticky taped to the buffet glass. Performance host didn't have his... More

Ate here twice during my week's stay. It's not really gourmet quality, but at dinner you get steak cooked to order, a half lobster (with coupon), various fish and a few other entrees and salads and desserts. The little Polynesian show was what made the $20 or so price seem like something of a bargain. Have been to a high... More

My husband and I decided to try this place after walking by. The price seemed okay for a buffet-style meal and we got a coupon for free lobster, so we decided to give it a go. BIG MISTAKE! If I could give this zero stars, I would. First, the "show" was a sad little thrown together thing that was mildly... More
