    Loved our dinner at Tiki's grill. The food was great. The staff very friendly and accommodating even for our group of 10. And the view at sunset with the sun going down through the palm trees was incredible. A great experience all around.

    We were entertaining visitors from Japan and there was a language barrier. We were so fortunate to find that our waiter spoke Japanese fluently! Not only was he informative, but he had a great sense of humor and was a huge help in making our meal a success. We will definitely go there again!

    Service was really good from the beginning to the end. Our host was very nice. The outside view was perfect, too bad it was really hot that day though. Food was good too. I think it's great that host ask if I wanted extra sides to put on my burger because it would of been really plain with out it. Overall, we had a nice lunch. Thank You.

    We eat at Tiki's often and usually have the fish. One of my colleages had the Wed Special Prime Rib and I had the Baby Back Ribs. We both let the water know that the meat was somewhat dry and tough. Our water didn't do anything about it when the bill came. Our third colleage had the fish special and really like it. I was very disappointed that with two out of three meals not so good that the waiter didn't offer to do something as a remedy.

    If you can get a table on the outer balcony, do so. Best to reserve to get a chance at this though. This was my second time a Tiki's and I have largely enjoyed each trip. I really enjoyed my grilled salmon with ginger soy sauce. The restaurant also makes an effort to support local suppliers which is nice to see and reflected in some of the preparations. For desert, the chocolate mocha cake was delish! Service was uneven. For example, my order to the waitress for desert resulted in another staffer coming out very quickly with the dish; however, before I could say anything, the fellow was gone and I was stuck staring at the cake with no fork to eat it! Seems it takes 2 or 3 staff to get anything done there and those handoffs mess them up.

    We've gone to Tiki's for years, special occasions, with friends, or just good food in a relaxed environment. This was different. The waiter was very bad, rude, unhelpful, disinterested. A guy was going around taking photos of diners and then trying to sell a photo package to you. He was rude, very pushy, and generally made us feel uncomfortable after interrupting our meal. The taro rolls and banana butter are always delicious, and the Kalua pork quesadillas were still great, but the main courses were average at best. My wife's rice was cold. When we informed the waiter he shrugged and said, "What do you want me to do…" The cocktails were awful as well. We told the manager and he was sympathetic, but the experience was already ruined.

    This is our third trip to Waikiki and we will alway hit Tikis'. I think it's the same owner as Dukes because they had an ad for Dukes on the coaster. This place is awesome for great food, drinks and view of Waikiki beach. If you have never been to Waikiki I strongly recommend booking at the Marriott Beach Resort and Tikis' is across the street. This hotel is also one block from Starbucks and walking distance to pretty much everything. On this trip we also found that one of the best sushi restaurants is right here in our hotel, Sensei's. We ate there last night and will be heading back for sure, it was awesome. This review is for Tikis' though, so go there for sure, you will have a wonderful time and great food.

    We had a business dinner there after a day of meetings and it was a great relaxed atmosphere with a wonderful view. Our reservations provided us with a fantastic table. Our waiter was helpful, we were very happy with the quality and quantity of the food and drink, and special kudos for the ratatouille vegetarian dish, which was a nice treat. Like many Honolulu places, they want to take your picture and have people buy copies of the photos, but we did not, got a little postcard copy for free as a souvenir anyway. Overall great option in Waikiki.

    In what appears to be a very expensive Waikiki restaurant market, Tiki's is an ok moderately priced, right across from the beach option. Although our server was pleasant and reasonably attentive and there was nothing wrong with our food choices (coconut shrimp, pork strips and ahi poke), it wasn't memorable. We did go home with a souvenir drink glass but the drink itself was low on alcohol and flavor. It's a nice, fun atmosphere and there is live music but don't expect to be blown away by the food.

    We dined at Tiki's recently to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Our daughter had made the booking and arranged a gift certificate from home as a special treat for her Dad. It was no problem to alter our original booking from 2 to 4, and Tiki's were happy to accommodate us half an hour earlier than our booking time on the night. I was advised of the celebration package we could purchase and many of the staff made a fuss of him on his special night. Thanks Tiki's! Deb & John S

    We stayed at the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel and Tiki's is on-site. The first time we were there was right after our 10-hour flight, and I'll admit not in the best of moods. However, the service was friendly and the food was decent -- not great cuisine, but better than average food. The other time, we came for a late-night bite and it was the same: friendly service and decent food.

They made sure We got a patio table with an amazing view of Waikiki beach. The service, food, drinks, and everything else were all incredible. I would definitely come back to tikis and recommend it to others. Also, it's spacious enough for anyone to have an enjoyable experience, no matter what you're dressed for or what kind of experience you are into. You could dress nice, casual, or just sit at the bar for a quick drink and you'd be happy no matter what.

    This place is way too crowded! The staff cannot appropriately seat people. We had a reservation for 4:15p, and arrived promptly, but our table was not ready! After waiting nearly 45 minutes, we were told another party took our table!!! WTF??? We were finally seated and ordered drinks (I was TOTALLY dehydrated) and it took ten minutes for her to bring us our drinks (NOT water, but our alcoholic drinks!) I basically had to beg for water!! This was the first time we went there with a reservation, every other time we have gone there (and there have been plenty) we end up leaving and going elsewhere because it is too crowded and the service is VERY slow!! If you want a good time, there are plenty other places to go for Pupu's and happy hour.

    Beware! This place is crowded! (And on a Thurs. night. too.) And thus very difficult to be flexible with the seating. We came to celebrate two birthdays, and hoped we would also be able to see the hula, as well as the view. I knew that there would most likely be 4 of us, but that one or two might stop by, have some pupus/drinks/dessert whatever with us. Well, I reserved a table for 6, and because we didn't have six there to actually seat, we could not get that table (plus it was far back & not great), so they were willing to seat us 2, plus 2 arrived 45 min. later. It was all very disappointing, confusing and uncomfortable, and spilled over into the actual dining experience with everyone who waited on us, including waitress&bartender

    My food was excellent, my service was not. The restaurant/bar (and perhaps my server) was somewhat busy, typical for a friday night, but it took ten minutes to receive the glass of wine I ordered. Water was also not quickly forthcoming. Once my entree had arrived, I had to ask the server for the (complimentary?) rolls. Only after my dishes were cleared were my menus/wine list also removed from my table. On the bright side, my cajun Swordfish was nicely prepared, with brown rice replacing the pasta. Caesar salad volcano was visually appealing, and light (thank you) on the dressing.

Everything was delicious and the portions were very large. We especially enjoyed the bacon wrapped scallop appetizer, the Mac nut crusted mahi and the ribs. You really can't go wrong with any of the choices! Reasonably, actually under priced for the quality and portions. Can't wait to return!

    We ate at Tiki's our last night in Honolulu. We were looking for somewhere special to mark the end of our trip and Tiki's didn't disappoint. The food was delicious, Hawaiian fare. I particularly loved the crab and three cheeses dip. The service was great and we had a beautiful view of Waikiki beach for the sunset. We have two children and the Tiki's children's (Keiki) menu had lots of options for them as well as colouring-in and other activities to help keep them occupied. It was the perfect end to the trip for us.
