My wife and I stopped by Kona Sam’s Sunday for their brunch as per WooHooWahine’s suggestion from the night before at the King Kukulele show, which was awesome.
Boy was I not prepared for what I walked into!
First off, it was open. Everything beyond this point is a bonus.
The amount and variety of food they had at their brunch
buffet was impressive and the quality was spot on.
When we walked in the back dining area there was a fellow,
Chuck Stone carving a tiki, cool!
On the stage at the front of the room there was LIVE authentic Hawaiian music, AND a few minutes later a floor show with 3 hula dancers and a young man performing traditional Polynesian dance.
Are you kidding me?? Live music, floor show, tiki carving, and a BUFFET….fugedaboudit.
The night before my wife was “volunteered” to hula in front of the crowd at the Purple Orchid, and ironically I was “volunteered” at brunch to hula with the dancers on stage.
It’s funny how things work out.
On one of my trips to the buffet I heard the familiar sound of Tikiyaki Orchestra being played in the restaurant’s sound system. As mentioned earlier in this thread, a good sign.
The only thing less than perfect with this more than pleasant setting were the volcano bowls from the night before I was still feeling. They were thwarting my ability to enjoy a tropical beverage in the vacation like scene I found myself in.
The live music goes on throughout the entire time of their brunch which is 10 to 2 I think? The dancers have two shows at 11:30 and 1:30 I think? I’d contact Kona Sam’s to confirm show and brunch times.
I just checked their website and it says this brunch costs $29 but I swear we paid $21 a person??? Regardless, we could not have been happier with the food, service, entertainment, and ambiance! We’ll be back for some more of that action. Thank you for the suggestion WooHooWahine.
