Since 1956, we have captivated people with our warmth and magical aura. The Mai-Kai authentically recreates a Polynesian Village, complete with tiki torches, a thatch roof, tropical gardens, waterfalls and museum quality artifacts.  The exciting Islander Revue is performed nightly by native Polynesian dancers in colorful hand sewn costumes. The Hawaiian wedding dance will seduce you, and the Samoan Fire and Knife dance will leave you speechless. The Revue is a favorite of all ages

Remember, it's a touch spends, but you pay for the EXPERIENCE at Mai-Kai. Our daughter loved it. The show was a lot of fun. Entertaining for all of us. Food was tasty. Duck curry was good. My wife had a pepper beef plate that was really nice too. Really juicy beef. Service was kind as well.

Awesome! Friendly waiter from Bulgaria, always ready to give us what we need :) the show is a good educational of music and dance culture. No complaint but if you really want to see each other on the table, its dim. Also it's better if you have flexible schedule for the rest of the evening. I would suggest one thing is the Garden. It's nice and quick, wish they added background comments on the statute so it gives more taste of cultures. But overall, great experience!

11/26/15 Back again !!! This was our 4th thanksgiving at Mai Kai in a row. We love the turkey and ham combo. Mike was a very attentive and professional waiter. Thanks for the great night and we will be back again soon. 10/28/15 The food and drinks are consistently delicious!!! Great place to spend a relaxing evening! The food was perfect and the price so reasonable. We came on a Wednesday and took advantage of the free sushi and pot stickers. The waiter Bryant A was wonderful! I strongly recommend the Zombie! One will do the job! We make this a must go to place every time we have company from out of town! The view is amazing!!!!!!!We ordered a variety of things off the menu and everything was great, especially the Szechuan surf & Turf!

Never again! I wish i wouldve read all of the reviews before spending 183.00 at this restaurant. The best way to describe the food was mediocre. I think my husband and I had a taste and were done. The only thing I enjoyed about the experience was watching my children in awe watching the fire show. The food was cold not seasoned well so there was no flavor. I think its ridiculous to have to pay to park; its pure greed. The bathrooms smell of mold and urine. I was just disgusted with the whole place. Any establishment that charges astronomical prices as this one needs to be on top of everything and impress all new customers. I was far from impressed and would not recommend this place to anyone that asks. I never offer my opinion or reviews but i would hate for someone to be tricked into thinking this would be a pleasant experience. Highly disappointed. (please hire new chefs)

Thank you for visiting the Mai-Kai and sharing your thoughts. We strive to provide an exceptional experience for every guest. I apologize for the disappointments. The parking lot is controlled by an outside company. We try to inform everyone about the $3.00 parking fee when they make a reservation. We have a very large menu and a new chef. He has been working very hard reviewing and upgrading all of our menu selections. It would be helpful to know what was ordered and who served you. Your server should have been more aware of your displeasure with your menu selections. If you could please email me your date of visit and the reservation name, I will be able to look up this information. My email is: dbrodis@maikai.com Thank you for your comments, they will help us build a stronger team.

This was our first time eating here tonight. We made reservations for both dinner and the show. Once we arrived to the restaurant, we were seated at the wrong table and we're not able to view the show (but ended up watching it as we were leaving). But we were happy that we were seated at a different table. It was way more comfortable then our original table (very small table close to the stage). Our server wasn't very friendly or helpful. Her name is Laurie B. She made the first-time experience for us bad by not checking on us frequently. The overall customer service from this establishment seems very unorganized. So, would I recommend this restaurant to others? I'll put it like this. If your very big on customer service. Then this restaurant might not be the place for you. But if you like good Polynesian food, fun tropic environment and an awesome live show? Then it is worth the experience. Good luck!

This place is awesome! Have been going there for years and the food/drinks/atmosphere are consistently wonderful. The restaurant is a total escape to the South Pacific, with authentic vintage tikis, etc. The Molokai Bar makes you feel like you're inside an old pirate ship. The drinks are very yummy. I always start with a Tahitian Breeze and then "move up" to the Barrel of Rum. The show is spectacular and the gardens out back are also very nice. Whenever we have out of town guests, I always take them there. No one has ever been disappointed. Aloha!
