“Nice Evening”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

it was really a cute place inside. I am glad we read the reviews ahead of time so we knew it was in a strip mall. It wasn't a big show, but the two female dancers and the one male dancer were really good. The food was good and so was the service. I bought a deal on the computer and it was a good experience. The drinks were okay. I have hd better Blue Hawaiians at Cooper's Hawk and definitely better drinks at Hala Kahiki, but we got food, drink and a show. The waitresses were all great!

“A Little Taste of Hawaii”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

My husband & I found this little gem by searching "unique restaurants" The website was very informative. Reservations are highly recommended. Since this is dinner show they offer 3 "dinner/show" packages. All very reasonable. The restaurant is nestled in a small strip mall. A couple lights were out on the sign. From the outside it doesn't look very promising. As soon as we walked in I was all smiles. The decor is amazing. Tiki's, totem's, flowers everywhere! We sat to the left of the stage. We had the ultimate package ($49.95) which include an alcoholic drink person, appetizer per person, salad per person & 2 dinner entrees. The food was amazing! The drinks were so festive. I highly recommend the coconut crusted chicken. The show is very interactive with the audience & is about an hour long. The bar tender who is a part of the show was awesome! He really made the show amazing. At the end of the show you can go on the stage and take a picture with all the cast members for free. The only thing we had a problem with was the service. Our waitress kept on disappearing & at the end of the show we waited almost an hour because you can't go up to the bar & pay, you must wait for your waitress. The credit machine was also down but obviously that wasn't their fault. All & all if you're looking for something different, fun & even kid friendly go here!

“Taste of islands close to home.”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

A fun place for a special celebration, or group outing. We had a groupon deal and that made it a much better deal. At our table the coconut chicken was the favorite! We were celebrating a birthday and the show was a great way to finish the evening off- service was good- and the place was packed.
Thanks to groupon and the tiki terrace for a great evening!

“Very nice place”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

I like this place, it's cozy, warm, inviting, relaxing, food is good and drinks are even better. Drinks are a little pricier than enywhere else but they're loaded with alcohol. I highly recommend this place.

“Lost in time”
Reviewed 5 March 2013


We went for the Polinesian entertainment and their food. Dissapointed in both. Mostly they seemed interested in get you seated, get you a drink and come back later to get you food order. The enterainment was just ok. Mostly about getting guests from the audience up on stage to do the "Hula" with one of the enterainers.
