Every time I go to Kauai I go to Tahiti nui. So much great food and pizza. Yes it's crowded but you just have get there early. Great band knack attack. So funny. I've been going for 10 years. I love it.

Not a great place to eat, but OK. The service was slow and the place was too crowded to sit in front. They did manage a long table for the eight of us in the back. We had pizzas and beer. Our group ranged from 80 to 10 years old and although cramped, we all felt welcome

We visited this bar several times on our trip, but I wanted to review the Wednesday night luau. Free mai tais for an hour, which is dangerous because they are so delicious. I'm the only vegetarian in our group and I signed up knowing that there wouldn't be a ton of things for me to eat, but wanted the experience... More

My husband and I went to dinner here last night and had an enjoyable experience. I got the prawns and it was the best meal I've had on the island! It was simple and delicious! My husband got the mai tai and ribs and said both were great. Love the laid back vibe of this place!

Walked in Friday evening (happy hour 3-5). $7 mah tai's were great. Live entertainment with local vibe. Pizza is very tasty (thin crust) and rubs between $20 and $30 a pie. Food was fresh. Coming in there you get a real feel for local Hanalie. Great overall visit and would strongly recommend a stop in.

We don't typically eat fast food but I'd guess it would have been better than the lunch we had here. Food had no taste, very bland and it took 30 minutes to get our meal....and they weren't even busy. I definitely wouldn't recommend this place. You could get a much better meal for $30 than here.

We discovered this place on our anniversary almost 10 years ago, and it's a have to go to place, everytime we get to Kauai. The mai tais are consistent and amazing, everything else is amazing but ever-changing, depending on who is visiting and who is bartending and cheffing.

We got this recommendation from our surf instructor. It's a very local spot right on the main road in Hanalei. Great mix of locals and tourists with live music, good food, and fun lively crowd. Bartender was slammed but easy to laugh. The owner - a retired-looking silver-haired man with a flanel over-shirt and a big smile came in at... More

We really enjoyed the luau lat night at Tahiti Nui. We were greeted with a fresh flower lei for me and a wooden lei for my husband. The complimentary Mai Tai's were refreshing and plentiful. The buffet dinner was good but the highlight of the evening was the show. My goodness, those girls can shake their hips. The fire dancer... More

Beautiful music, great service and amazing food. I had the shrimp dinner and it was delicious. Reasonable prices here. All the food going past look amazing. I would love to go back. The Hawaiian entertainment was also very lovely to listen to. Enjoyable evening.
