Mai Kai’s island-style dinner show is a Miami-Ft. Lauderdale classic, and even if you’ve been before, the show changes every year. While you may not be near Polynesia, the climate and atmosphere of Florida makes this an ideal place to play islander, and to let your inhibitions go for a night of authentic Polynesian food & drinks, music, fire, and dancing.

The Mai Kai Polynesian Islander Revue is a song and dance performance crafted by Mireille Thornton, who, every year, creates a new interpretation of life in the South Pacific at the turn of the century. Her inspiration? Regular trips to islands of Polynesia: Tahiti, Aotearoa, New Zealand, Samoa and Hawaii.

What will you see and hear? Polynesia’s rich heritage will come alive in such numbers as the Hawaiian Wedding Song, in which two young lovers are separated before being reunited in marriage. Mai Kai also brings you a moving Tahitian solo drum dance competition from the region’s largest annual cultural celebration, the “Heiva I Tahiti”. All shows include brightly-colored costumes, haunting island sounds, and a cast of talented dancers and musicians. Their costumes are authentically-made from hand-painted tapa cloth, which is taken from the bark of breadfruit trees. They are adorned with flowers, mother of pearl, feathers, abalone, and shells. Each room at Mai Kai reflects a different region of Polynesia and overlooks a waterfall or lagoon.

The Mai-Kai dance troupe will invite willing audience members on stage to learn dance moves and to put on their very own lei! Children will receive a Polynesian activity book, and can choose their own items from the children’s menu.

Arguably the most exciting part of the night will be the food. The menu includes items like the gigantic Pupu platter, Tahitian cheese tangs, Polynesian chicken, blackened shrimp, Mai-Kai escargot, Javanesian beef, and over 51 frosty alcoholic and non-alcoholic tropical drinks. Vegetarian options are available.

The Mai Kai Polynesian Revue follows dinner, which is served until 8:30 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, until 9:30 on Thursday and Sunday, and until 10:30 on Friday and Saturday. Shows take place at 8:00 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, at 7:00 and 9:30 on Thursday and Sunday, and at 7:00 and 10:00 on Friday and Saturday nights.
