    MAI KAI -- serving Chinese and Polynesian food and featuring a spectacular Polynesian Islander Revue! The Mai Kai complex has been in existence since 1956.

    The dancers are real professionals, and you can see authentic folklore from the Hawaiian Islands, Tahiti, Samoa and the Maori of New Zealand. The premises recreate a Polynesian Village, complete with tiki torches, a thatch roof, and a wooden plank bridge entrance.
    Between dinner and the performance, you can stroll around Mai Kai's POLYNESIAN GARDENS, complete with statues from South Seas Islands. There is also a gift shop selling Polynesian souvenirs, most notably BLACK PEARLS from Tahiti. Beautiful!! (These pictures of me were taken in the gardens...) PLEASE SEE THE MAIKAI TRAVELOGUE FOR MORE PHOTOS!

    Favorite Dish: The cocktails are not to be missed!
