    Wow! I can’t say enough of the most tentative guy who took our order at the entrance. He got my drink order perfect and was very patient and kind. We were able to get the 1st large table across the bar on the left of entrance. The cashier kept checking on our party and alerting waitress as needed. We had awesome service from everyone passing by. Thank-you for an awesome night,everyone enjoyed!!!

    The food was good but it is expensive for everyday type of food. Moku was a fun environment but it seemed a bit strange to order at the counter instead of at the table. Moku is located in an interesting restaurant complex.

    We have consistently come to Moku Kitchen whenever we visit Oahu, and have enjoyed it very much in the past. Last night we dined with friends who hadn’t experienced Moku before. The first encounter was the strange check-in process which I did remember from our last visit, but thought perhaps it would revert back to the traditional mode after a time - the management should know that it’s really off-putting, and there is no obvious benefit, except perhaps to stall the seating process. The menu looked pretty good until I noticed our friend trying to figure out which items were gluten free (no guidance or markings on the menu) We thought, ok, servers will know - not true! We also had a shellfish allergy at the table, and the situation was the same - all sorts of communication back and forth needed to happen. The servers took all of this very well, I might add. I would think that a Monkeypod restaurant would have a better handle on dietary issues like this - especially the gluten free issue, which is pretty common… The Monkeypod Mai Tai was fabulous, as was the corn chowder! The overall consensus on the food was that it was very good, with the exception of the fish tacos, which were bland (strange, because they were a favorite last time we dined here) Again, want to mention that the servers were great - the thing affecting my review and ratings are process items that could be easily fixed! We may dine at Moku Kitchen again, and will hope for improvement!

    Good overall. Nice big booth seating. Kind and friendly servers. Table got No Ka Oi drinks as we recalled how delicious they were at Merriman’s. Not good. Mostly tasted like a screwdriver. Not worth the $14. Stopped drinking after that but if it had been good we would have ordered 3 each probably. Charcuterie board was just ok. Needed way more bread (ordered more for $2) and the onion dip was awful. Just lacked anything special. Coconut soup was excellent. Fish and chips was good. Fajitas were wonderful. Fish sandwich hardly had any toppings, and a tiny scoop of slaw - should have had at least a full serving. No other side dish offered. Gelato and sherbets were good. Ordered coffee and needed to ask for refills with more cream and sugar for table. We stayed a long time to chat since there were other open tables and that was worth the experience. Oddly we had to start our order at the reception desk and give our credit cards. After a while we figured that maybe others had dined and dashed out the back so this was their way for having some control over it. No biggie after we figured it out. Parking was pretty easy and with their discounted ticket I felt it was worth the $9.

    Not a fan of waiting in line then ordering first and finding my own table when it’s busy. What’s the point of a reservation? Had to take a table that wasn’t clean yet, then we ordered more at the table anyway. Seems like it saves maybe a couple minutes for the wait staff at the expense of my time, and waiting in line, and finding a dirty table.

    Food was not as good as it was a few years ago. Service sucked, I don't expect constant vigilance by my waiter/waitress but I do expect some attention. Dishes had to be asked to be removed from table, had to constantly ask for assistance setting the waitress on the side talking while other servers are busy can be annoying Just a poor service experience.

    Expensive. Food was okay. I ordered steak frites medium. It was more on the medium well side. And my fries were soggy. Also he the pot stickers. They weren’t anything special. The kids pizzas were nice sizes. My husband got a cheeseburger. Had to wait a while to ask for ketchup. The runners put your food down and disappear; don’t ask if you need anything, so we had to wait till the server came back for ketchup. Overall I just didn’t feel like it was worth what I paid. My tab was $130. Two kids pizzas, steak and fries, cheeseburger and fries, and potstickers.

    Hannah was amazing as our server! She was able to make great recommendations and we tried them all. The staff works to help each other and to make every interaction of your dining experience excellent. I haven't been here since pre-pandemic but I would definitely be back again. We came in on a Friday night so even though it was busy the entire time we were there, the staff was very attentive!

    Loved Moku - first time there. The vibe is great and the food is delicious. Our group had the Saimin, Prosciutto Wrapped Lamb, Fish Tacos, Poke and Shrimp Deviled Eggs, plus the Lilikoi Foamed Mai Tai's, yum. The ambiance is urban casual. Will definitely go back again.

    we like Moku. our issue has been with parking. we were in line 59 minutes in the garage. restaurants should take issue up with parking management. they did not have a back up plan.. I would be hesitant to return to Moku for this reason. thanks

    We took friends here a week ago and loved the food and the staff. Last night we took another friend and my mother-in-law and the waitress we had remembered us! She told us to make sure we bring our receipt in next time for a free piece of pie. Service was excellent, food superb, and the cocktails were on another level. The Mai Tai with the Dole whip was soooo good! We wild mushroom pizza, ravioli, and duck tacos were amazing. I really recommend Moku!

    Due to ordering your first meal and drinks at a counter, the experience was depersonalized. Our waiter needed to continually ask our names if we needed something extra to eat or drink. The food was fresh and tasty! However the lack of good service made the overall rating less than average.

    Very creative, order at front first(can be minimal to get tab started-they ask for credit card) they give you a number and then you sit where ever you want and then the server brings you water and then you can order other items off the menu with the server once you're settled in. A short Uber or taxi from Waikiki. Food was excellent and there was live music, inside and outside seating, and a very fun lively atmosphere!! Would definitely recommend to others, reservations needed.

    Location is great, live music was wonderful, but the food was extremely underwhelming. The saimin broth was so salty that my son and dad couldn’t even eat half their bowls. The pizza was meh - my husband wondered if the crust was previously frozen - and my entree salad was the size of a side salad which left a lot to be desired.
