Granted, our visit followed a storm, the atmosphere was a grungy bar. It took 20 minutes and a request to the manager to please locate our waitress. A pizza with barely a topping was $25. My 11 yr old grandson ate it alone. He was...More

Went to get a beer / told power outage and will have to pay cash plus no food. Bought a round of drinks / when waiting for another beer the Kiwi bartender was too busy making drinks for another employee. Bad service !!!!

When you pass by Tahiti Nui, it's easy to do. It's a little off on its own in Hanalei, not directly part of the little shopping centers and just before you hit them so you're like "Oh! I'm in Hanalei!" just a little late to...More

Went to a luau here because we didn't want to drive to one of the "bigger" luaus. Far exceeded my expectations. Great food and entertainment. I highly recommend!! Get there early - the line getting inside and seated can be a bit long.

We went for dinner and were seated immediately. We ordered ribs and pizzas. The ribs were very good. The Kahlua pork pizza with pineapple was quite tasty. Service was prompt and friendly. While nothing is gourmet it's quite tasty and a fun casual place for...More

Just go anytime! No need to reserve except for the Luau. I think you need a reservation for that. If you want a great seat for live music maybe get there a little earlier. It's a fun place.

I'm not a huge Mai tai fan, too sweet but I did drink a couple and visitors told me they were better than the St. Regis.
