Great show and food!
Daniel_C, May 2024
Great show and buffet. We did just the original—didn’t pay extra for green room experience or preferred/VIP seating. Glad we didn’t it didn’t seem worth it. We were sitting just as close and had same experience.
Totally Mesmerizing

Great time!
ARTHUR_M, May 2024
The buffet was plentiful including roast beef which was tender and delicious . The hula show that took place during dinner was a pleasant treat. The actual SHOW which followed dinner was top notch .The venue is a show room. , theater, similar to what one might find on cruise ships or in Vegas. The show featured a cast of about 20 dancers , I think 3 singers, not including “Elvis” and “Michael “ plus 4 musicians playing 6 I think instruments . Also very good “flame stick” artist. “Elvis” had the voice down perfectly, both in song and in conversation with the audience. Plus walking distance from many Waikiki hotels including ours which was the Hilton grand vacation Hawaiian village. And the cost was less than others! We highly recommend this event!
Luau and show to remember

Shirley_S, May 2024
Food was great the show was also. Elvis and Michael were okay short on songs and just okay. Michael looked scarey
Hawaiian Extravaganza
Angela_L, May 2024
The location of the event was inadequate and not clear enough when I booked it, we had a little difficulty with that. The Royal Hawaiian Centre is so large. The staff, tour guide, buffet and show was extremely enjoyable, highly recommended, a great way to end our stay in Hawaii.
Do your reaearch
Felicia_S, Apr 2024
Same price as all the other shows in town but definitely not the one we wanted Of I had done my research I would have seen it wasn’t authentic whatsoever.
Nice luau and show - Worth the trip
Kim_V, Apr 2024
The staff and performers were very friendly. I particpated in the very fun hula lesson! The luau food was plentiful and delicious- I tried everything- my husband had seconds. The theater was comfortable and we could see the entire stage. The sound was great and the band was really impressive. The performers (Elvis and Michael Jackson) were enjoyable and were available for pictures afterwards. I was happy to see the videos included some Hawaiian history. It was a nice way to spend the evening. The venue was indoors and close/walking distance from our hotel in the Hawaiian Center...Easy to get to with elevators for those with ambulatory issues.
Hawaii rocks!
Brian_R, Apr 2024
We booked a VIP package and were really impressed with the whole event. A real Lai was presented to us on arrival with a Mai Tai. An extra premium drink ticket was also included. We were serenaded at our table and asked to use the buffet first. Range of food and as many visits as you wanted. Food constantly refreshed. Dancers performed around the tables and set up a try your hand at hula dancing for anyone to take part. The show then moves to a 750 seat indoor concert venue with fab performances and staging. Way more than we expected. Everyone serving or performing were great. We had a special night and thought it was amazing value.
Good show
Teodorica_G, Apr 2024
Michael Jackson impersonator looked just like him, sang like him and danced like him. Hula dancers were great. The fire dancer was exciting. We felt the heat.
