The immersive dining experience will evoke the spirit of Asian American Pacific Islander culture with a lei greeting, hula dancers, and gourmet food stations, including sushi and poke bars, a whole roasted pig, hot items like the Kahuku Food Truck’s Famous Garlic Shrimp, desserts, and specialty craft cocktails.

The luau is the culmination of a month of special menu items and cocktails that includes a Japanese old-fashioned made with Suntory Asian Whiskey. Offering the most extensive collection of Japanese Whiskey in the Southeast, Morimoto will also have Suntory Asian Whiskey available for purchase.
