Wow this evening was one of the best evenings we had on the island ! The food was brilliant and they encouraged you to go back to the buffet at least 3 times. There was a great variety and really delicious. The show was spectacular !!! I was really impressed. We went for my daughter's 21st but I didn't tell them about that. If you are going for a special occasion, tell them, they make them feel really special ! We found this cultural evening way better than the other one that's promoted on the island. Great value for money !

Great fun; dancing and story telling were magical and made the evening fly by. Buffet supper had lots of excellent food choices, all well cooked, lovely and hot (apart from the salad!) with everything beautifully presented. Drinks were reasonably, too, for Raro.

One minor complaint was that, although we were among the first to arrive, our table kept getting ignored and we actually had to complain before we were 'allowed' to join the buffet queue. Made us feel like we were back at school!

A great evening out, although not particularly cheap, given the number of people who were at the event.

This was such an awesome experience. The food was delicious and the service by the staff was at a hugh standard. The show was absolutely amazing and I loved that it had a story behind it. They have clearly but in a lot of time and effort into choreographing the dances. The dances were by far the best on the island. Even though it's pricey it's so worth it!

For NZ$100 I expected more of a show, you arrive at 7 PM and the substandard buffet goes on until just before performance start at 8:30 PM and the performance was over by 9:10 PM and then the rest of the time until the final close is filled in with a birthday song some ordiance dance participation and a buffet desert.

We were picked up at the hotel big a big open air bus and that's where our adventure started. The staff are so friendly, helpful and always smiling. We did the cultural tour before the show which was great with loads of info but maybe a little too long. The dance show was visually stunning and the sound of the drums will stay with me forever. The food was a little better than other places on the island but not a highlight. Id definitely go again.
