I purchased the tickets for my friends, it was 130 nz dollars per person however when I asked the local friends from Tonga, she said if I buy from the spot it’s only 45 no dollars. Then I emailed TripAdvisor, they never responded. The receipt...More

We came here our first night in Tonga. The food was good though that is really where my positives end. The owner is the MC and lead singer. He never stops talking, is totally attention seeking and if I am honest is not a great...More

Beautiful location. It is run by a lovely family and the feast is perfect if you want to try all the different food Tongans eat. The performance afterwards in the cave is AMAZING and very well worth the money. Just one note: It is downhill...More

Interesting cultural dance and fire eating show in the cave but frankly could have done without the owners pastiche of western music at the beginning and most definitely the Christian preaching and prayers imposed on us . We were part of a cruise line tour...More

Simana is an amazing entertainer and does well to open his home to make you feel welcome. The food is by far the freshest and tastiest traditional Tongan food you can get from the selection of buffets available in Nuku’alofa. What makes this place so...More

The food: an excellent umu (earth-oven) type feast, a lot of different local dishes that you wouldn't get a chance to try otherwise. The suckling pig was excellent, and the various other dishes delicious. No complaints there. The show: VERY preachy. Ironic that the MC...More
