Mauna Kea Hawaiian Luau Restaurant Review

: The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel's twice-weekly luau overlooks the ocean and features a live hula performance. Guests dine on family-style appetizers of fresh taro rolls, shrimp cocktail and island fruits. The meal might continue with lomi lomi salmon, ahi poke and poi, followed by plated dishes of kalua pork, chicken long rice or grilled fresh catch. Desserts carry on the theme with sweet potato haupia, chocolate lava cake and lilikoi cheesecake. Tickets include a complimentary Mai Tai or keiki drink.
