Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show

    What to Expect
    Escape to one of the most unique dining and entertainment experiences in South Florida, Mai-Kai restaurant. Mai-Kai opened its doors in 1956 on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale and has watched as the city has grown around it over the years. It authentically recreates a Polynesian Village, complete with tiki torches, a thatch roof and a wooden plank bridge entrance, and turns it into a restaurant.
    Mai-Kai’s award-winning cuisine includes Cantonese and American dishes, from fresh seafood and steaks to house specialities like Peking duck, rack of lamb and lobster Bora Bora. An appetizer, main course and dessert are included with each meal. (See Itinerary for a sample menu.) And don’t forget to try one of their world-famous tropical drinks with your meal or at the tiki bar.
    The entertainment is first-rate. The essence of Polynesia comes alive in the song and dance of the celebrated Islanders Revue. Musicians, drums and brightly colored costumes light up the stage every day and there’s a new interpretation of village life in the South Pacific every year.
    Mai-Kai restaurant is food and fun for the entire family.

    Absolutely wonderful experience for my husband's birthday celebration. I did not expect the food to be fresh and fabulous. Shrimp appetizers, shrimp entrees and very expensive Mai Tai but worth it since it was a celebration. Kudos to our wonderful server Kandy. She was so...More

    I enjoyed the Polynesian Show, The food, is not up to par and is expensive. The waiter is attentive, so is the head waiter., also the other personnel who helped us get a taxi after the show.
