What You Can Expect

Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show

Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

This place is family-friendly and children-friendly. The best part about this location is the entertainment. The entertainment was only one hour long. They gave a short history of the Polynesian culture and gave a short Polynesian dance and fire show as part of their entertainment. The location served various types of chinese foods and chinese meals and desserts at this location. My favorite meal was the fried calamari and the fried chinese rice. Their non-alcoholic pina coladas was delicious in my mouth.
