    My husband had Miso butterfish with brown rice and I had slow cooked pork roast over pumpkin purer with vanilla scented applesauce. Both were from the Specialties menu and they were extremely tasty and more creative than other restaurants we had tried I. Waikiki. We enjoyed the breezes from our table on the veranda with views of beach and palm trees. Highly recommend Tiki's

  • Terrible Service - Good Food
    badexperience
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    Food was good, but the dining experience was terrible. We had to flag the waiter down for everything. He made excuses for everything instead of making it right. At the end of the meal, we put $100 in cash and a credit card to charge the balance. The waiter ran the entire total on the card. When I called him over and told him that I gave him cash and it wasn't deducted from the charge, he said that someone found $100 on the floor and they put it in the safe. We watched him walk over to a busboy who took the $100 out of his wallet. Seems very deceptive - check your billed amount if you pay with some cash and some credit. We alerted the manager to the issue and got nothing but an apology. Food was good, but not worth the hassle.

    We chose this restaurant for the Tiki cocktails and were really impressed with the food! He had a filet and I had the (extra) garlicky shrimp. We loved the coconut shrimp for an appetizer. Nice tip, when you order a cocktail you can get one of their signature tiki glasses for only $5 - we went home with three! We are outside had a great view of the ocean and palm trees, and Connor was a great server..perfect for our last night of vacation.

    Had dinner here Saturday night. Booked a reservation and table was ready on time. Very nice server, answered questions about the food and how various dished were prepared. The menu is interesting and inspired by many Hawaiian ingredients. I loved the vibe here and the pretty view overlooking the ocean. There was live music so that was a nice touch. Good value for money. Will go back again next time we are in Honolulu.

    Food was so bad! Appetizers were sweet and un appetizing! I have never sent anything back ever but I had to send back the butterfish entree. The fish was slimy and super sweet! The brown rice below it was even sweeter! The greens below the rice was sweeter than a spoon full of sugar! It was so bad that I lost my appetite after everything being so sweet! Never again! Roy's is the place for fresh seafood!

    Local Hawaiian specialities done well. Kalua pork was awesome. My Hawaiian spare ribs and grilled shrimp special we're delicious and paired well with a Sonoma cab from the wine list. The view of Waikiki beach at sunset and convenient walking distance from hotels are and added bonus and account for a the pricey entrees, but we'll worth it on vacation. Be sure to enjoy the taro rolls and sweet butter.

    We made our reservation through OpenTable and asked for a beach view. It said that they are a first come, first serve item, but we took our chance. We were lead to a noisy, high traffic table in the middle, but when we asked they said that if we could wait about 30 minutes we should be able to get an outside table - and it happened. Food was good, bartender was fun while we were waiting, not our choice for a romantic evening, but we had a wonderful time and would return again when back.

    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.
