We wanted to go to a good luau. We did our research and decided upon cheap luau so glad we did had the best time and the best food I didn’t want the night to end. If we ever are fortunate enough to get back to Hawaii, we will definitely go to another Chiefs luau.

I just read the woman last review and I disagree. This was a great experience. Our transportation got us there a little late because of traffic, but nothing we could do. The food was ok nothing great but some good, there was plenty and you could go back and get as much as you want. The drinks were limited some beer and Mai Tai. And water Y
They sell shirts and your pictures 1 for 35 and 2 for 50. All that was average but the show was fantastic real knives swords and fire dancers. The chief did an excellent job telling his history and entertaining the crowd. After the show the chief and performers spend as much time as people needed for pictures. Excellent show chief is fantastic. I upgraded and it was well worth it
As a side note a friend who lives in honolulu says anytime someone wants to see a luau he sends them there and they are always happy. If you are military veteran or active they give a discount if you call them direct and show I d when you get there. I would pay to see show again
Great time. Thanks chief .

WORST Luau in Hawaii!!!!!
Food is HORRIBLE
Gregg the guy who checked us in was extremely rude. We were celebrating our daughters 50th birthday with 16 guests. They did not have us sitting together. The bathroom on the bus wA broken. And worse yet the location was a joke. And did I mention the FOOD SUCKED. They ran out of the $30 pineapple drinks. I wish I could select zero stars!

Folks save your money!!! And thank me later!!!

The show was top notch and please go for the show and not for the food. Chief is so funny and the quality of the show covers mediocre food. Though, the price is high, my group enjoyed every second of it.

The show was amazing! From the minute you walk in, you are greeted by the dancers. They give a little background on the show. You the. Take a picture that you can purchase. After the picture, you are escorted to your table. They have tables labeled with your gifts. The food is not bad at all. I recommend going through the everything line so you can try it all. The show was by far the best part. The only bad thing about this luau is the drinks. They have a small and watery mai tai (1 ticket) and then the lines to purchase extra drinks is long.

The show was awesome. The food was good but not amazing. The drinks were good too. I feel I got my money's worth. They did have it set up where they served you.

So the positives. The chief is hilarious. The dancing is intricate and explains all the different nuances between the cultures from a male and female perspective. The best part is the fire dance at the end!

The cons. The drink service is slow. If you order the royal package you wont get to use all your tickets. The food is cold when it is served to you. They show you a precooked roasted pig so you dont get that experience. And its far away from Waikiki so you will sit in traffic to get there.

Overall I’m glad to have the experience but wouldn’t do it again.

We didn't know what to expect at a luau. The Chief's Luau has great reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to attend. We made reservations in advance and miraculously arrived on time. I can't insist on how important it is to give yourself plenty of time due to traffic. There was plenty of parking and we were greeted with either a lei of shells or beads. There was a bar available and we learned how to make coconut leaf crowns that we took home. There was also small tables of carved wood items. The food was good. Of course there was roast pork , salad, vegetables and dessert. Although there were many people in attendance, everyone was served buffet style and you could get up for more food. You also receive 2 drinks with your ticket for a cocktail or soda etc. The chief was fabulous! He was funny and told stories. The entertainment was great with the men and women dancing and throwing fire sticks. There was also audience participation and the Chief celebrated those who were newlyweds as well as those having anniversaries. Everyone had a good time. There also was no problem exiting the parking lot. I recommend this luau if you really want to have fun.

This was my second luau and I felt it was better than the first luau. It was smaller and because of that it felt more like family. Chief, as well as the entire company, made the experience very enjoyable. When in Honolulu, do as the locals do!
