    Excellent time
    Emily_S, Oct 2023
    Not knowing the are not a lot help from the locals to locate the show.. but once we got there..we’ll worth the wait. Excellent food, Internet settings for couples and families, friendly staff, show was wonderful..would recommend
    For the price it was good. The people were nice.

    We did enjoy the food and the show. Did not like the setting and feel the experience would have been much better near the water. Could have done with out the stations. Not only because that is not what we expected but it was chaotic. Others seemed to enjoy. We walked away not unhappy. Again the show was good and the food was good.
    A magical memorable dinner show.

    A must-see in Hawaii

    Everything! The hula dances, the emcee keeping us energized and participating, the fire chief and the coconut, the food...It was definitely a night to remember.
    Luau within easy walking distance of many hotels
    Miranda_M, Aug 2023
    If you're looking for a luau within easy walking distance of many Waikiki hotels, this is a great choice. It's located in the International Market, but it's a great experience. There's not a bad seat in the house, since the venue is small. Great activities beforehand provide a hands-on way to learn about Polynesian cultures. The presentation was professional and interesting, and the food was delicious.
    Easy access location.

    Intimate gathering, nice music, great emcee, very friendly staff and great dancers. Good food very enjoyable.

    My family enjoyed the dinner buffet, dancing and the interaction they had with the audience on bringing them upstage to dance as well.
    Danica_G, Jul 2023
    I told my kids we were going to have a good time , we got there a bit late but the show hadn't started yet so phew, the ambiance was everything , the food the drinks ,I had two and that was all I needed , so delicious ,each single dance was beautiful in its own way . The dancers were so interactive with the kids and sweet , my daughter is so shy she wouldn't even say hi to a fly on the wall but the dancers had her open up and she Eben went on stage !! We had a beautiful time, will come back again
    Fun times in Hawaii

    Very friendly. Enjoyed the performance and everyone was so friendly. Food was good. It was outside in the middle of the mall . Was not really a private event because people on the second and 3rd floor got to see the show for free . Since it’s a public mall . First floor was blocked no access without wristband

    The excursion was canceled. Lets see how long it takes me to get my refund . I'll give them a chance to prove themselves as a company I wouldn't mind referring friends and family.

    It will be memorable. We'll put together, entertaining, and enter active. We were there for my Mothers 70 birthday 🎂
    Food was good the show...
    Sharon_L, Apr 2023
    Food was good the show was okay. There service was good. They need to have more choices on drinks other than water and tea
    worth it, worth it, worth it
    Tori_M, Apr 2023
    This was a very enjoyable evening. Even though it was raining, they had everything set up so attendees would not miss out. The costumes were beautiful, with wonderful music, great food, and awesome hosts. They made us feel very welcome, to forget our worries and all I can say is Mahalo!
    Great experience
    ricky_t, Apr 2023
    Very interactive and fun experience. It was a party type setting. Everyone can also learn all the tricks of the dancers
    Great time at Queen’s Waikiki Luau
    Larry_L, Mar 2023
    The whole event was well run and entertaining. The MC was terrific, the musicians and singers were very good and the dancers were exceptional. Even though it was done in the centre of a mall the event was very authentic. Loved that it was close to our hotel and didn’t have to drive an hour or more to see the show. The food was very good and you were invited to go up for seconds if desired. You definitely got the luau experience and saw some exceptional performances of traditional dances done by the ladies and men in the group. The MC also did a great job of explaining local culture and language.
    Ok but the food was Meh
    Teague_G, Feb 2023
    While it was an ok experience, I would seriously consider the wording for “Polynesian feast” it was more like 7-11 packaged meals as they were portioned out and served. A tiny bit of shredded pork. And it rained, so they had this hideous tent that ruined all the photos. The dancers and cultural performances were great, we had seen them for free the day before (same dancers btw) at the Ala Moana shopping center at 5pm
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    Thank you for sharing your experience. While I'm sorry to hear that the food did not live up to your expectations, it's worth noting that different people have different tastes and preferences when it comes to food. Many people attending cultural events like this enjoy the unique flavors and presentation of the traditional dishes. Regarding the tent, I can understand your frustration with how it affected your photos. However, the tent was put up to ensure that the show could go on despite the rain. It's a tough balance to provide adequate shelter for guests while also maintaining an aesthetically pleasing environment. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the dancers and cultural performances. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.

    The entertainment was lots of fun. Great family event. Enjoyed the dances the best. The venue was small and it was easy to see for everyone. Food was average but the entertainment was great.
    Response from Host, Feb 2023

It's great to know that you particularly enjoyed the dances, and that the small venue made it easy for everyone to see. While the food was only average in your opinion, I'm happy to hear that the entertainment was a standout and made for a great experience overall. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and I hope that you have the opportunity to attend another luau in the future!
    An Enjoyable experience
    Lisa_R, Nov 2022
    The entertainment was great and the food was good. It was a smaller venue a fairly easy to find. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

    The engagement of the MC and the guest plus the dancers and fire man was amazing!! My only comment is the food was tasty but was not hot and there was no roasted pig like I thought it would be.
    Queen’s Luau
    Alyssa_D, Jul 2022
    The luau was in the middle of a mall to start off. While we paid almost $300, there were people watching from show palace for free. There was no roasting pig or anything, food was mediocre. Would not recommend it’s too expensive for that type of experience
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    I hope my response will clear up some confusion and concerns with your experience. Regarding the location, the land which our luau is hosted is one of the most historical locations on Oahu. It was owned by King William Charles Lunalilo, the first elected king in Hawaiian history, who gifted the land to Queen Emma, who is responsible for opening the Queens Medical Center. The luau is hosted in the Queen’s Garden, which honors the healing spirit of the Queen, her hospital and her mission to always act with generosity and kindness toward others. We understand at first glance it appears our luau is hosted in a mall, but we are actually located in the Queens Garden surrounded by beautiful coconut trees and plants. However, our location is correctly advertised on our website and across all online platforms through text, images, videos as being located in the International Market Place so I hope this addresses your concern and anyone who is reading about the location of the luau site. I also want to address the complete value of what you get with the luau price for the readers who are not familiar with what a luau is. The price you pay for reflects the luau experience as a whole which include the interactive cultural activities, dinner, and Polynesian show. Here’s the PROS about attending Queens Waikiki Luau vs others luaus: 1. Conveniently located in Waikiki, which means you can just walk to our luau site instead of getting on a bus or driving an hour to the other side of the island and driving another hour back to other luaus. 2. Small intimate setting, which means one-on-one interactions with our performers. To put in perspective, we only have about 100 person capacity vs other luaus which have more than 600 person capacity. This means you will feel like family at our luau versus feeling like cattle being herded at other luaus. 3. Best value-All luaus have the exact same amenities which is the cultural activities, dinner, and show. We offer all those things with the additional benefit of intimate participation, convenient location, and at the most affordable prices. Other luaus are double the price. This is why Queens Waikiki Luau is one of the highest rated luaus on Oahu!
