    I did the Ali’i buffet. Since it was a buffet, cross contamination is possible so try to go a little early before it gets messed up. The only gf meat was the Kalua pork. For sides they had vegetables, salad bar, and some fruit. They had this coconut jello stuff that was gluten free. The food was ok, but I think you go to the Polynesian cultural center for the experience and not the food.

    Not Gluten Friendly at all. Everything was buffet style and I saw spoons being mixed between dishes. The food was average at best. Most of the meat had teriyaki sauce on it. I ended up eating white rice, salad with no dressing, and risked white fish even though it had spices on it. Definitely not worth the money. If you like that kind of thing, go for the show not the food.

    We love the PCC and had high hopes for the luau buffet as the website said that every buffet had gluten free options. Our waitress obtained an allergen binder, but couldn't decipher which items were actually gf. After some discussion we determined what the charts were telling us. Our options were mainly green salad, pork and white rice. The only gf dessert "available" wasn't actually available. We went for the layered jello dessert (since jello is usually gf) and probably shouldn't have. My son and I both got sick. Love everything about the PCC, but was disappointed with our meal.

    Had tickets for the Alii Luau at the PCC. Despite the total lack of clear communication (no answer to emails, or direction for who to talk to at the luau), I was happy to see most of the buffet was gluten free. the buffet had separate containers for croutons (not on the salad) and the breads were outside the covered section of the counter. Desserts were on a separate table altogether. I would say the chances of cross contamination are fairly low. manage your own risk. I had no reaction. I had rice, sweet potato, pork, fish & pineapple.
