Our goal is to create an authentic evening of Hawaiian and Polynesian based experiences and activities for you and your guests. Diamond Head Lu’au is so great for families because of our focus on interactive, cultural activities like: hula lessons, lei making, weaving, ukulele lessons, tattoo, and more. It is this direct interaction with the culture that we find creates the best memories to complement the savory food and upbeat entertainment.
Tropical and classic cocktails, as well as virgin blended drinks are also available at the Diamond Head Luau.
In ancient Hawaii, it was customary to celebrate special occasions with ohana (family) and friends. We at Diamond Head Luau continue this tradition. Enjoy our menu of traditional Hawaiian favorites.
SMOKED KALUA PORK
This is a savory traditional Hawaiian dish. The Imu (in-ground oven) cooked pork meat falls off the bone, and is typically very tender and moist, with a slightly salty, smoky flavor that is just delicious.
ROASTED SHOYU CHICKEN
Shoyu Chicken is the Hawaiian recipe for Teriyaki Chicken. Flavored with a sophisticated blend of spices, this sweet and flavorful dish is cooked until tender and then roasted until brown. It’s like Chicken Candy!
FRESH LOCAL FISH
With a crispy Panko batter, it’s hard to find better fish to fry than local Hawaiian fish. We serve ours with a local aioli dipping sauce.
FRESH AHI POKE
Tender cubes of raw Ahi Tuna marinated with sea salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, limu, and a dash of magic to make this traditional dish one of your favorites.
LOMI LOMI SALMON
A cold side dish in Hawaiian cuisine, it is a fresh tomato and salmon salad, prepared by mixing raw salted, diced salmon with tomatoes, sweet gentle Maui onions, green onion, and occasional flakes of red chili pepper.
Poi is the staple of the traditional Hawaiian diet. It is made from the corm of the taro plant by mashing the cooked taro until it is smooth. It is of purple color and slightly sweet.
LOCAL SALAD & TARO ROLLS
A medley of Local Greens served with a Papaya Seed Dressing.
What can we say, it’s fresh, hot, steamed rice! Doesn’t have much flavor on it’s own... but it makes the Kalua Pork taste REALLY good!
